Dylann Roof convicted

A jury on Thursday convicted Dylann Roof of gunning down nine people at a black church in Charleston, S.C. The jury rejected Roof's mental health defense.

Roof admitted entering the Emanuel AME Church on June, 17, 2015 intent on committing mass murder.

"I went to that church in Charleston and I did it,” Roof told police investigators after a brief manhunt ended in his capture on June 18, 2015.

Roof said he wanted to kill black people to avenge the deaths of white people.

“Black people are killing white people everyday. What I did is so minuscule compared to what they do to white people every day,” he said.

"Somebody had to do it," he added.

Police discovered a list of historic black churches in Roof's black Hyundai sedan when he was pulled over on a freeway in Shelby, N.C.

AME Church members had welcomed Roof to join their bible study in the church's basement. After praying with the bible study group, Roof opened fire, killing nine.

“He walked into the church with murder in his heart,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Curran said in court. “That’s why, when they closed in prayer, he shot them dead."

Roof told investigators he was surprised to see no one outside the church when he left after committing mass murder.

Roof faces a possible death sentence.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I hope he gets the death penalty.

  • Carolina Blue

    Pit and pendulum his ass...

  • Quitedeliteful

    I hope this P>O>S sits on death row for the rest of his life. I don't want him executed. I want him to lose his virginity in jail. I want him to meet up with Bubba and 'em. I want him to get shanked in the azz every time he blinks!!! I want him to never see the light of day -- just those cement walls and feel that hard cock -- I mean cot every time he sleeps.

  • Chardonnai

    Same thing I said. Death is too good for him.

  • CaramelDrop

    "Possible" death sentence??!!! Fry this deginerate till the juices run clear!!!

  • Libra80sBaby

    IMO...if you are sentenced to death, you should suffer the same fate as your victims. Fuk that Lethal Injection

  • Chardonnai

    Bring back the firing squad huh. LMAO

  • Sucker Free

    I am ready for the sentencing...he had so much to say when confessing it will be interesting to see what he says with a death sentence hanging over his head

  • Buttercup

    I'm not against a firing squad. Some would classify it as cruel and unusual punishment. I was just trying to keep it PC.

  • Kjibbers

    He will always be hateful bigot. There is no hope for rehab for him. Fry his azz.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Give him the needle or throw him population ? bastard

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    U know he is not with the other inmates. Hell they gave him a vest and fed him when they arrested him

  • RespectSelf

    But how does mental health get thrown out??? Like how do they determine who is crazy and who isn't? There are some crazy people walking around looking like everybody else.... It's one thing to kill a person in the heat of the moment during a fight, or killing someone for money, or killing some... But walking in church killing people after prayer is "crazy" Like something is mentally wrong with you.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Good

  • MsKitty MeowMeow

    DEATH BY FIRING SQUAD WILL DO

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    It is so sad to pass a crime scene and be sad because it's just sad to see violence happen not knowing or ever thinking it was someone who took care of you while small but also doted on your children. Her husband not only killed her but shot her grandbaby too...take thyself out if your miserable not innocent folks.

  • JerseyMom

    Kill him. Death penalty, please.

  • puppylove

    This mf was legally sane.

    They declare you mentally incompotent if you cannot or could not understand that your actions could poaaibly lead to some one's death. He knew if he shot them they would die, therefore he is sane.

  • puppylove

    Its legal in utah.

  • hi-liter

    And don't let it take 20 years to do it.

  • nucynu25

    HUH

  • Mystery User

    that photo does not look menacing... he looks goofy and retarded.
    I was listening to his interrogation video clips and he reminds me eerily of my step-son, who is too currently in trouble with the law and whom we believe has some mental disabilities.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    A dear friend of ours was killed and I passed the crime scene not knowing it was her.

  • Low E. TUH!

    AT LEAST HE HAS TO PAY THE PIPER

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Well when he admitted that he thought about not going through with shooting that pretty much voided an insanity defense.

    If I had been one of the family or friends of the victims and had heard that I would have had to put Jesus in my backpack and sent his soul straight to hell---express.

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    Prayers for your stepson and family.

  • nucynu25

    OH GOSH..stay safe

  • nucynu25

    Sorry for your loss.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Thank you

  • RespectSelf

    I get that... But I think he's crazy just like serial rapist, and serial killers. I'm sure they have to be crazy even if they know what they are doing is wrong. Because if your telling me they are not crazy then to me your saying they are in their right mind like the rest of us that don't do crazy nasty stuff like that... and the two don't go together

  • Dee

    I hope he burns in hell!!

  • Cheese eggs

    So long big fella?????????

  • klwbaby

    Many people say that lethal injection is a joke because the only pain they feel is when the needle goes into their arm and that medicine puts them to sleep and after that, they don't feel a thing.

  • CaliVirgo

    Sorry to hear about this chokie choke. You stay strong??

  • klwbaby

    The average cost to house an inmate in south Carolina is over 20,000 dollars per year... this pink pig is going to live better than people busting their butt working everyday.

  • Smartypants

    I hope this conviction will deter others from murdering innocent people. May the victims Rest In Peace.

    I don't want him to get the death penalty. I want him to spend the rest of his life getting beaten and bloodied by the "othered" prison population.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Roof faces a possible death sentence
    -------------
    A part of me wants him to just sit in jail and get beat, raped, and everything else bad that can happen everyday in jail. The other part wants to send him straight to hell! Don't pass go don't collect $200

    “Somebody had to do it because somebody had to do something,” they said. “Black people are killing white, black, asian & latino people every day on the street, and they are raping women.

    Thank you

    My god!!! ???

  • Carolina Blue

    This is why i like the work release programs. Inmates can work and pay their own way. Here in NC its $400 month.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    I hope your son can turn that around

  • CapricornIce

    Burn in hell honkey.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Oh God Choke I'm so sorry.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    For this one you want evidence of hell.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Had to look this up. But yea it's abt right

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    If they did this you wouldn't need the death penalty. I bet that.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I heard his girlfriend left him for a black man and that's why he did it...

    I hope he gets tortured to the point he offs himself. It would be so worth it.

  • Username 222

    How much time did he get sentenced to? 45 days?

  • Sid

    With probation. He will sit in prison I doubt he will get death.

  • Username 222

    I'd be surprised as h3ll if he gets sentenced to death. We don't get justice of that caliber unfortunately.

  • God is working on me!

    The I see it, in prison the KKK will protect him and give him praise. He will have protection.... at if prison is anything like TV prison. If anything send in him to the prison in Panama called Sona if it was real. I don't think we should give him the death penalty. That is a cop out.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Thank you

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    :( he turned himself in.

  • Carolina Blue

    Um um um!!!!!!!! Wtf?!!! Smh!!!!

  • che’lint

    Yeah, like where is that happening?

  • che’lint

    Church folks is doing all that. Where at? ?

  • mela.reign77

    Don't even know why a trial was needed in the first place. It was clear from the start that he was guilty as sin. However I am glad that they did not drag it out and cause more anguish to the deceased loved ones. Now that he's found guilty what's next is my question? It better not be a slap on the wrist either or something along the lines where he can possibly see the light of day.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Right had the nerves to run.

  • S T

    Hm. I'm shocked. Let's see what the sentence is....half hour detention and no Friday pep rally, probably.
    #WhatRealTerrorismLooksLike

  • S T

    The prison "staff" are probably from the same KKK chapter as his family. He's probably living the life in there. Protected, well fed, saluted and er'thang. I wouldnt b shocked if theres been a confederate parade in his honor.

  • S T

    It'd be disproportionately used against certain people. ??????

  • jussaying

    makes more sense

  • Carolina Blue

    Smh..how you do some fuk shit then run???!!!!! Coward ass devil!

  • jussaying

    he'd probably fall under the protection of neo Nazi groups in prison. i say just kill him. don't waste my tax dollars.

  • Libra80sBaby

    Right!! Yet their victims had to suffer. That's not justice to me

  • jussaying

    you are oversimplifying things entirely.

  • S. Williams

    people make conscious decisions to do horrible things. doesn't make them incompetent. ppl overgeneralize the term crazy by making it about something they wouldn't do so the "others" must be crazy. they're just as sane as you are

  • Tynamight

    I think others need to be convicted right along w/ him. RIP to the saints who died.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    No Words.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    The only convicted him because they HAD to....but I am glad that they did. I bet he gets royal treatment in the penitentiary however.

  • Cici

    Thank God for justice!

  • VM

    Prayers going up, so many tears. The coward will have to answer for what he did.

  • VM

    He did say that he didn't want to do it because they were so nice to him. His agenda was to kill and now he has to suffer the consequences. I don't know, I'm burned out on trying to figure it out.

  • Emily post

    Can they just kill him already.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Thank you

  • VM

    My pleasure.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Now you got to go Dylann. Good riddance

  • KIm

    Let him sit on death row 10-15 years then fry his ass. Waste of space on earth
