Charleston Church Shooter – Dylan Roof Handed Death Sentence For Racial Killing Of Nine


Dylan Roof, the white supremacist who shot up a black church in Charleston, South Carolina in 2015 and killed nine people, has been sentenced to death after the conclusion of his trial.

Roof, 22, invaded the Emmanuel Methodist Church in Charleston on June 17, 2015, opening fire on congregants during a prayer service. He killed nine people, including the church’s senior pastor and South Carolina state senator, Clementa C. Pinkley.

Roof had been found guilty on federal murder and hate crime charges, and the sentencing hearing was simply a choice between life in prison or the death sentence – the ten woman and two man jury gave him death.

Roof had shown little remorse for his actions, and in documents of his found after his arrest, he had written he hoped to spark a ‘race war’ via his actions – as he believed blacks were leading to the destruction of the country and the white race.

“I felt like I had to do it, and I still do feel like I had to do it.” he told the jury in his closing statement before they entered deliberations.
