no title

He got what he apparently wanted.

On Tuesday, murderer Dylann Roof was sentenced to death for killing nine African-American churchgoers in June of 2015.

As we previously reported, Roof was convicted of 33 federal hate crimes in December of 2016 and nine counts of murder last month.

While the criminal's lawyers tried to maintain an insanity defense, Dylann repeatedly expressed he was mentally sound and expressed no remorse for slaughtering his victims.

Charleston Church Shooter Dylann Roof Says He'll Do Nothing To Prevent Getting Sentenced To The Death Penalty

no title

It's been two weeks since Dylann Roof was found guilty on all charges against him after murdering nine people at a historically black church in Charleston, and yet the case continues to cause confusion.

That's because at his South Carolina hearing on Wednesday, the 22-year-old white supremacist made it clear to the court he has no intention of challenging his death penalty ruling!

Essentially, Dylann — who is notoriously representing himself — told U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel that he does not plan on using evidence or any witnesses to help his case. Instead, his only request was that prosecutors not be allowed to use some of their evidence against him, although it's currently unclear exactly what he was referring to.

With that said, Dylann has until opening statements next Tuesday to reappoint his attorney(s)… but it's sounding like he may actually want the death penalty at this point.

Why else would he be actively sabotaging his own arguments??

Regardless, we just hope the nine innocent victims and their families get justice in the end.

Inmate Survives Execution — And Now The Court Has Ruled Whether He Can Be Put To Death Again!

no title

This is as shocking as it is confounding.

Back in September 2009, Romell Broom got the ultimate last-minute stay of execution when he survived his lethal injection!

After two excruciating hours of a team attempting to inject poison into the veins of the convicted murderer, Ohio Governor Ted Strickland stopped the execution.

But since the state did technically attempt to execute him for his crime — even though he survived the horrible ordeal — Broom's attorneys argued that trying again would violate double jeopardy laws.

You know, the reason O.J. Simpson had nothing to fear from that knife.

Well on Wednesday the Ohio Supreme Court settled the argument once and for all, ruling

This is sure to get people talking.

Jack Osbourne tweeted a "thought for the day" on Thursday night, and it went right to the heart of the matter about the ongoing and disturbing criminal case surrounding former Subway pitch man Jared Fogle.

He must have been watching that Dr. Phil special and got pretty offended — like the rest of the audience — by what he heard in those audio recordings.

Because this is what he tweeted:

boston marathon bombing prosecutors seek death penalty Dzhokhar Tsarnaev execution

If the U.S. Department of Justice has its way, one of last year's Rolling Stone cover boys might be executed.

On Thursday Attorney General Eric Holder and federal prosecutors announced they were seeking the death penalty in the trail of alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev!

He stands accused of making homemade bombs with his now deceased brother, Tamerlan, and detonating them near the finish line of last April's Boston Marathon. The explosions killed three people and injured more than 260 others.

If the terror suspect is convicted and subsequently sentenced to death, his would be the first federal execution in over a decade and the highest profile one since Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh was given a lethal injection in 2001.

In an eight-page statement prosecutors said:

lax shooting update suspected gunman Paul Ciancia one tsa agent killed another shot anti government literature

They’ve got their guy!

Officials determined that the LAX shooting on Friday was allegedly done by Paul Ciancia and he has been officially charged.

The man who opened fire on LAX Terminal 3 could face either life in prison or the death penalty for murdering a federal officer.

It was determined that Ciancia used a .223-caliber assault rifle when he killed TSA officer Gerardo Hernandez.

The worst part is that officials are saying that Ciancia walked away from Hernandez and then came back and shot him when he opened fire again.

FBI Special Agent David Bowdich commended the LAPD, saying, "The heroics of the officers cannot be understated.”

As for the specifics of what Ciancia will face,
