Jurors will reconvene early next month to hear more testimony and decide whether Roof gets the death penalty or life in prison.
That didn't seem to take very long.
Short trial, because open and shut, with no grandstanding from lawyers, two hours of jury deliberations.
Surprised there hasn't been more commentary in this thread. This was a big event, very likely to make it into the textbooks of the next generation. In a sense, Dylan Roof is an example of the "white people are under attack" sentiment that played out in the election.
It often depends who starts a thread whether it gets comments or not.
I am anti death penalty. I sort of expect it to be awarded young Dylann. I have no sympathy, whatever happens to him.
I'm anti death penalty too, not so much out of sympathy for brutal murderers but out of the possibility that the wrong guy can get executed. But like you, I have no sympathy for this guy.
Such irony-a guy named after Bob Dylan, who was part of the civil rights movement, does this.
