Innocent Child Dylann Roof Sentenced To Death By Sadistic South Carolina Jury
We all know that Dylann Roof has been railroaded by a mockery of justice for his 2015 act of self-defense against a horde of savage Black drug-dealers, but I have to hand it to the kid when he was faced with the most harsh decree possible in this nation.
When given the death penalty by a cruel jury (mostly Negroid) lacking even the most rudimentary understanding of human rights, Roof took a calm breath, faced the officers of the court, and uttered a few sentences that will forever go down in the annals of American history:
“Y’all realize that I did nothing wrong, right? Somebody had to stop those Nigger animals before it was too late. Besides, what are subhumans even doing in a Christian church to begin with? Everyone knows non-Whites don’t have souls.”
Ok, he didn’t actually say that, but his remarks were surprisingly clear, calm, and collected for someone just told that they will die by being strapped to a gurney and injected with poison.
Just a few hours after he told a crowded courtroom “I still feel like I had to do it,” Dylann Roof was sentenced to death by a federal jury for carrying out a cold, calculated massacre inside Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church in a bid to spark a race war.
The 12-member panel – three white jurors, nine black – deliberated for a little less than three hours before unanimously deciding that the 22-year-old white supremacist should die for his crimes rather than spend his life in prison without the possibility of parole.
It will be up to the presiding judge to formally impose that sentence, but he is bound by law to follow the jury’s decision. U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel has scheduled the formal sentencing hearing for 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Roof, who sat stone-faced and silent through most of his hate crimes trial, betrayed no emotion as the jury’s verdict was read. During his closing argument earlier in the day, he passed on the chance to argue for his life, saying “I’m not sure what good that will do anyway.”
After the jury announced its verdict, Roof stood and asked the judge if he would appoint him new lawyers to help him file a request for a new trial. Gergel told Roof a significant amount has been spent on the current legal team that Roof sidelined for the trial’s penalty phase, a team led by noted capital defense lawyer David Bruck. The judge said he would be “strongly disinclined” to bring in new lawyers at this point, but he will listen to any motions Roof wants to make during Wednesday’s proceedings.
Earlier in the day, Roof told the jury that prosecutors don’t understand him or the meaning of hate in their quest to put him to death for the June 2015 church massacre.
“Anyone, including the prosecution, who thinks I am filled with hate has no idea what real hate is,” Roof said, speaking to jurors from a podium about eight feet away from the jury box. “They don’t know anything about hate.”
After Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Richardson delivered a two-hour closing statement, Roof walked to the podium with a single sheet of yellow notebook paper. He appeared to read from it, pausing at times to glance down. His remarks lasted less than five minutes.
The 12 jurors and six alternates listened impassively as Roof, acting as his own attorney, addressed them.
“(Prosecutors) don’t know what real real hatred looks like,” he said in a flat, hollow voice. “They think they do, but they don’t really.”
In a brief, disjointed address, he insisted that he wasn’t lying when he told FBI agents that he doesn’t hate black people. He noted that, in his confession, he made the distinction that he doesn’t like what black people do. Nor was he lying when he said he felt he had to act as he did, he said.
“I think it’s safe to say that someone in their right mind wouldn’t go into a church and kill people,” he said. “You might remember in my confession to the FBI, I told them I had to do it. Obviously, that isn’t true because I didn’t have to do it. I didn’t have to do anything. But what I meant when I said that was I felt like I had to do that. And I still feel like I had to do it.”
Roof went on to say that he is misunderstood but he didn’t attempt to explain himself further, offering only that “the prosecution and anyone else who hates me are the ones who have been misled.” He said people hate for a reason. Sometimes that means they have been misled, other times not.
“Wouldn’t it be fair to say that the prosecution hates me since they are the ones trying to give me the death penalty?” he asked. “You could say, ‘Of course they hate you. Everyone hates you. They have good reason to hate you.’ I’m not denying that. My point is that anyone who hates anything, in their mind, has a good reason.”
Roof said he had been told that he had the right to ask the jury for a life sentence “but I’m not sure what good that will do anyway.” He also reminded them that during jury selection each had pledged to stand up and object to a death sentence if they felt that was necessary. He stopped short of asking them to do that, though.
In his confession, Roof told FBI agents that “I had to do it,” the proclamation of “an extraordinary racist” who chose his course and stood by it in an attempt to create “a big wave” that would spark a race war, Richardson said.
“His society is a white society… that’s the world he wanted to live in,” Richardson (Assistant U.S. Attorney) said. “He plan was to create a white future, and he murdered nine people as a result.”
What’s more, he added, Roof hasn’t shown an ounce of remorse for his actions. He has shown sorrow for his parents and pity for himself over his predicament, but he bragged in a jailhouse journal after his arrest that he had no regrets and hadn’t shed a single tear for those he killed. He continued to decorate his shoes with white supremacist symbols while in jail, wearing the shoes to the very courtroom where his victims’ families sat awaiting justice, he said.
I suppose that today’s proceedings pretty much spell the end of the Dylann Roof Saga, although the death penalty system in much of the United States is so corrupt and complicated that he may yet live long enough to receive a pardon from a future regime of White Liberators.
But whatever the case, take this story as an example of what happens when a nation’s justice system becomes tainted with subtle emotional poison.
From one of the most advanced institutions in history to one where children protecting themselves get hauled away to be executed – that is the modern American legacy.
Dylann, you won’t be forgotten.
