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.

Charleston Shooter Dylann Roof Found Guilty Of All Charges In Church Massacre

no title

The legal system actually worked this time.

On Thursday, a jury found Dylann Roof guilty of all 33 counts of committing hate crimes after he massacred nine people and tried to kill three more in a historically black church in Charleston, South Carolina.

Last year, Roof opened fire at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church during a bible study group.

He was found guilty of the federal charges after undergoing a trial that included testimony from 30 witnesses, a recorded confession, and journal excerpts that prove his deep-seeded hatred for people of color.

The convicted killer will begin the penalty phase of his trial on January 3, in which he has asked to represent himself. Federal prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

These aren't the only charges the mass murderer is facing. The state of South Carolina has slapped him with separate murder charges, and is also seeking the death penalty in relation to those.

That trial will begin on January 17.
