He still has no remorse for his victims.
It was the same jury that convicted him that reached the unanimous verdict on the sentence. When the sentence was declared, Roof silently looked at the floor.
Once the jury left the courtroom, the racist Roof asked Judge Richard Gergel for new attorneys. In spite of the fact that the fool acted as his own lawyer, he still apparently blamed them for his sentence.
It wasn't as if Roof had "Better Call Saul" Goodman as his attorney (see Netflix), he had David Bruck, a renown lawyer and capital punishment opponent.
Gergel told Roof that he could make that argument at his formal sentencing hearing Wednesday morning.
Earlier, Roof made his closing argument in which he denied that he was filled with hatred.
The idiot racist said: "Wouldn't it be fair to say that the prosecution hates me because they're trying to give me the death penalty? Anyone who hates anything, in their mind has good reason for it. And sometimes that's because they've been misled and sometimes it isn't. But I would say that in this case the prosecution, along with anyone else who hates me, are the ones who have been misled."
His closing was over in five minutes. His last sentence was: "That's all."
The prosecution's closing statement was two hours long.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Richardson told the jurors: "The defendant had come not to learn, not to receive the Word, but he came with a hateful heart and a Glock 45."
And on Richardson went, discussing each victim by name, what they meant to the community and their families, and the terrible loss by their untimely deaths. He contrasted the victims, these "particularly good people" with Roof's racist views and "his belief in Hitler as a saint, as an icon, as someone to be emulated."
He showed the jury photos of Roof mugging for the camera with a pistol pointed at it during target practice.
The unfortunate part of the conviction is that the sentencing may take years before it's carried out. Appeals take time and the state will be feeding this piece of work for quite some time.
The jury of three black people and nine whites sentenced Roof to what to the same thing he gave.
