Dylann Roof, the thug who killed 9 black people in a Charleston church, says he has no remorse for the innocent people he killed and that there’s nothing wrong with him mentally. More inside…
Dylann Roof was convicted of fatally shooting 9 church members at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina in June 2015.
Today, he addressed the jury for the first time as they decide whether to give him the death penalty.
During his opening statement, he assured the jury there’s nothing wrong with him mentally and he knew exactly what he was doing. “There’s nothing wrong with me psychologically,” he said.
Speaking softly, he told them to forget everything his lawyers have argued during the course of the trial. He fired his leagal team and represented himself.
Journal entries written by the 22-year-old weeks after he was arrested reveal exactly how he feels about the mass shooting. He said it was “worth it” because of what he believes were wrongdoings made by the black community.
“Then I remember how I felt when I did these things, when I committed these murders, and how I knew I had to do something. And then I realized it was worth it.” he wrote.
“I would like to make it crystal clear, I do not regret what I did. I am not sorry.”
Prosecutors used his journal writings as the main component to convince jurors that he deserves the death penalty.
Last month, the jury found him guilty of 33 federal counts of hate crimes resulting in death, obstruction of religion and firearms charges.
It only took the jury an hour to convict him of all 33 crimes, so we wouldn’t be surprised if he’s sent to his death.
Can’t say many folks will be shedding any tears when he leaves this earth…
