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

"Guilty."

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.

Am I the only one that sees there is a problem with this case? Yes, murder is horrible, but I'm not talking about that.

Who took the pics of Dylann when he was burning the American flag? Look at the pics. Someone had to take it. That tells me he's not the only dog in this fight. A remote won't do it, you can see he's not holding one. A timer is not long enough for him to get that far away and pose in time for a pic.

Then look at Jared Loughner.

Then look at the kid that got busted a few months back for making terroristic threats. The agent had to DRIVE the kids FROM his mom's home, where he was staying, to his grandfather's where he got the money for the guns. Uhhh, why did the agent drive him? Why couldn't he do it himself?

I am gravely concerned about a lot of this crap happening and it seems the disabled are the targets. Mental impairments, yes. But still they are impairments and that by no means justifies setting anyone up for a bust.

I want to add that back in January of 2011 I was arrested for allegedly threatening a judge when all I told him was he's a variety of vulgar words. No matter, I was still arrested. And I was told by the chief of police "after what happened in Tucson, you should learn to watch your comments." Really? Hmmm. Except....
I was arrested on January 7th. This is a documented fact.
What happened in Tucson on 1/7/11? Google it and you should see what sparks my inquisitiveness about these tragedies.

Default He filed an appeal

Dylann Roof appeals conviction, death sentence in Emanuel AME Church massacre

"Dylann Roof on Tuesday appealed his conviction and death sentence in his hate-motivated slayings of nine black church worshippers in Charleston.

Roof's attorneys sent the formal notice to the Virginia-based 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. The filing, which contained no arguments, was the last expected move by the group of lawyers who tried to defend Roof at trial, only to be thwarted by his wishes to defend himself.

Federal public defenders from Maryland and California are set to take over the case during the appeal."
