Dylan roof

Dylann Roof, a white supremacist that killed nine people at the  Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in June, 2015 has now been sentenced to death. The verdict came after Dylann offered no proof of redemption.


The 22 year old told the jury;

I felt like I had to do it and I still feel like I had to do it.

After 3 hours of deliberation, the jury comes to the conclusion of its sentencing. 

The Charleston killer told the police he wanted to start a race war, and in different images that surfaced, he was seen with a war flag, which to many is a symbol of hate. 

Dylan Roof was convicted of 33 federal charges, including hate crimes.


The FBI director,  James Comey on Sunday had said that the killings that happened in Baltimore is not an act of terrorism. The FBI director said the shooting in Charleston, South Carolina that killed 9 people by a 21 year old Dylan Roof is not an act of terrorism, but a political motivation. James Comey said this on Friday while in Baltimore.


He said:

Terrorism is [an] act of violence done or threatens to in order to try to influence a public body or citizenry so it's more of a political act and again based on what I know so [far] I don't see it as a political act. Doesn't make it any less horrific ... but terrorism has a definition under federal law

Why FBI Director, James Comey Is Completely Wrong

1. Dylan Roof killed 9 African Americans because he believes they are taking over the country.

2. He was burning the American flag and said he hated the new America

3.He talks about starting a civil war

4.He killed a United States senator

According to the FBI website, this is the definition of terrorism :

 "Domestic terrorism" means activities with the following three characteristics:

Involve acts dangerous to human life that violate federal or state law;

Appear intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination. or kidnapping; and

Occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S.

Do you think Dylan Roof is a terrorist, or is FBI Director right?


Dylan Roof, 21 year old had said he wants death penalty for the killer if convicted and he will be happy to push the button, which is legal in South Carolina.


Carson Cowles, said he wouldn't forgive the nephew who went to the historic Emanuel AME church in South Carolina and opened fire, killing 9 people who are attending the church bible study last Wednesday.

I'll be the one to push the button. If he's found guilty, I'll be the one to push the button myself. He said

Roof was arrested on Thursday in North Carolina, 250miles away from where he did the shooting and was extradited to South Carolina to answer for his crime. He is guilty of 9 count charges now, and his uncle is asking for a death penalty. 

Another person asking for the death penalty is the governor of South Carolina, Nikke Haley. She said:

 This is a state hurt by the fact that nine people innocently were killed. We will absolutely want him to have the death penalty.
