yep, I am surprised.

ETA: especially so because of the jury questions. I am anti-DP but have nothing but respect for these jurors.

Still contend we need professional juries in this country.

Thanks to these folks who provided an important civic duty.

Question for anyone, does that mean he will be executed under indiana or south carolina? And will he return to south carolina for the state trial? TIA

Dylann Roof sentenced to death. But execution likely a ways out. Also faces state #RoofTrial. Points to consider: http://www.postandcourier.com/archi...cle_157d0493-a5a9-50c5-9221-a15f5ddd7046.html …

He has got everything he wanted....he had lawyers and represented himslf, now wants new trial, new lawyers so he can do the same again? No way.

I am surprised i thought there would be a hold out but I approve of the verdict...death.

Now on to the next trial for him. Will he represent himself? Same lawyers?

BBM Your guess is as good as mine....who knows, but he probably will want to (because, you know, he's smarter than everyone else- Pftt).

Don't know if he will get new lawyers, but I don't see why not.

Dylann Roof's relatives say they will always love him and are praying for the families of the nine slain church members.

In a statement emailed to reporters after Roof was sentenced to death, his relatives said they will "struggle as long as we live" to understand why he killed nine black parishioners during a Bible study at Emanuel AME Church.
Roof's relatives, who have not returned to court since the start of his trial, "express the grief we feel for the victims of his crimes, and our sympathy to the many families he has hurt."
In another statement, Roof's legal advisers said they are sorry that "despite our best efforts, the legal proceedings have shed so little light on the reasons for this tragedy," a veiled referenced to the mental issues they wanted to present during sentencing. Roof acted as his own attorney and said he wasn't mentally ill.
Father John Parker, an Eastern Orthodox minister described as Roof's spiritual adviser, said in a statement he denounces "Dylann's unspeakable crimes" and prays for the victims.

hmmm, wonder what these purported "reasons" were for this tragedy.

NO I DON'T.
