Today, on January 10, 2017, Dylann Roof, the young adult white supremacist who opened fire in a historic black church in Charleston, SC and killed 9 people, was sentenced to death by a jury.
Among the reasons for this decision was the premeditated nature of the massacre, the racial hatred that served as his motivation, the large number of victims, and the fact that's he demonstrated no remorse for what he did.
He chose to represent himself during the trial; he did not argue as to why he should not be put to death, but he did ask the jury for a more lenient sentence, adding that a single juror voting against the measure could save his life. It's expected by some that his sentencing will be contested on the grounds that he was not mentally competent to represent himself in court.

I guess he went one N too far.

I'm not a fan of that being a reason.

He chose to represent himself during the trial; he did not argue as to why he should not be put to death, but he did ask the jury for a more lenient sentence, adding that a single juror voting against the measure could save his life. It's expected by some that his sentencing will be contested on the grounds that he was not mentally competent to represent himself in court.

Well, his sentence will be appealed, as death sentences have an automatic appeal hearing. But, unless he can be shown to not be mentally competent overall, the fact he represented himself is not likely going to change anything.

Death is too nice a punishment for him, should have gotten life in solitary confinement.

I'm inclined to agree that solitary confinement for life would have been better.

Lots of studies show life ends being cheaper execution.
All things considered,of course.
Execution the day after the trial would be cheaper, never going to happen.

Life in solitary is worse than death, he either goes crazy for 60 years or bashes his skull into a wall to kill himself. Death doesn't scare him, do something that will make him suffer.

The dude represented himself and asked only that he not be put to death. He was trying to start race war.

I say give him death, no partiality, no lingering chance of his aims being fulfilled, an ultimate denial, send him to meet his maker with it.

People often think death is "easy" but truly its not. His family will suffer the shame of his actions and they will forever psychologically be effected by his actions and his demise. As for him, he should "reap what he sowed."

Sitting in solitary with no human interaction for the rest of his life would make him suffer more than death.

And this kid is pretty young...

I hope others think I am a young kid when I am 82.

I wonder if he would be dead today if he had been given a death sentence.
I wonder what the costs would be, court and incarceration, sentencing to death.
