US jury sentences Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof to death

A US jury has sentenced Dylann Roof, the self-described white supremacist who gunned down nine black worshippers in a South Carolina church, to death over the June 2015 massacre.

Roof, 22, was convicted last month of 33 federal charges, including hate crimes resulting in death, in connection with the carnage at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston.

Jurors deliberated for less than three hours.

Roof stared straight ahead as the judge read through the jury’s verdict findings before announcing his
death sentence, local media reported on social media.

Roof, who represented himself for the penalty phase, was unrepentant during his closing argument earlier in the day.

He told jurors he still felt the massacre was something he had to do and did not ask that his life be spared.

Roof still faces a trial on murder charges in state court, where prosecutors also are seeking the death penalty.

Millions of people over the millenia have said the same thing about Jesus but you know what? More people are still believing in him. I would rather die serving God only to discover that He does not exist than to live this life the way I like and die to discover there is God. That Mira Monroe does not believe in God does not mean He does not exist.
You free to believe what you like. There is a day of reckoning.
