Default Dylann Roof's 9 life sentences on state murder charges

Dylann Roof's 9 life sentences on state murder charges 'surest' route to federal execution, prosecutor says

"Guilty."

Dylann Roof spoke the word Monday that closed a dark chapter for the loved ones and a Charleston community shaken by his hate-fueled killings of nine black worshippers at Emanuel AME Church."

I think he either came to his senses about the suicide thing or decided federal death row was much better than state death row. Either way, good to see this chapter end. While I do think trump is going to go on a death warrant writing spree here sometime before his 4 years are up, Mr. Roof is well away from being threatened by it.

He's safer in federal custody than state. I gather that's why they went with the federal trial first.

He's still a mental case of some sort....not M'naughton-worthy, clearly, but so deeply disturbed.

that can be said for a lot of these mass murderers. It's too bad guns are easier to get and less expensive than mental health help.

"It's too bad guns are easier to get and less expensive than mental health help."

I seriously doubt Dylann thinks he needs mental health help and forcing somebody to get it doesn't do too much good.

Considering Jered Laughner and the Colorado Theater Shooter both wound up with a lot more insight before plea/trial, I have hopes.
