Dylann Roof Will Represent Himself In Charleston Trial
We previously reported domestic terrorist Dylann Roof was ruled competent to stand trial after gunning down 9 innocent Black churchgoers in a horrific hate crime. According to the NY Times, Roof will be representing himself in the trial…
The judge, Richard M. Gergel of Federal District Court in Charleston, called the request by Mr. Roof, 22, “strategically unwise,” but allowed him to have a lawyer present as backup.
“I do find defendant has the personal capacity to self-representation,” Judge Gergel said, according to The Post & Courier. He added, “It is a decision you have the right to make.”
Roof is facing the death penalty and an eternity of hellfire and brimstone for his vile crime. We hope they fry as his azz until he looks like a charred old shoe!
