Dylann Roof, responsible for the murders of nine Charleston, SC church goers, stated in a journal that he "did not regret what he did" and "I am not sorry. I have not shed a tear for the innocent people I killed."
This journal served as the opening argument by the prosection that Roof deserves nothing less than the death penalty. Roof's opening statement was to tell jurors that he had fired his lawyers because he did not want them to present evidence about his mental health. He complained that the lawyers forced him to go through two competency hearings, which he said would eventually become part of the public record.
“So, in that respect, my self-representation accomplishes nothing, so you can say, what’s the point?” Roof states. “And the point is that I’m not going to lie to you, either by myself or through anyone else.” He later states "There is nothing wrong with me psychologically."
With that being said, it would seem to me that the death penalty is highly warranted in this case. I know, there are many people who don't believe in the death penalty. However, when you have people so callous and evil who are capable of shooting up a church and killing as he said in his own words, nine "innocent people", why would you want to keep that person alive, eating and living his life on tax-payer dollars?
I have a great perpensity to forgive; but it is simply not here for this man. My sympathy will be reserved for the families who not only have to cope with their loved ones being taken away so ruthlessly, but with the fact that the monster who did it has absolutely no remorse for what he's done.
