Just a few hours after he told a crowded courtroom “I still feel like I had to do it,” a federal jury sentenced Dylann Roof to death for carrying out a cold, calculated massacre inside Charleston's Emanuel AME Church in a bid to spark a race war.

The 12-member panel – three white jurors, nine black – deliberated for a little less than three hours before unanimously deciding that the 22-year-old white supremacist should die for his crimes rather than spend his life in prison without the possibility of parole.

It will be up to the presiding judge to formally impose that sentence, but he is bound by law to follow the jury’s decision. U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel has scheduled the formal sentencing hearing for 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

All I can say is, "good".

Get it done ASAP.

Fry the little bastard.

No sympathy for the stain.

Die, die, die.

Good.

I wonder if anyone will show up here protesting the death penalty.

Im not against the death penalty, But surely solitary confinement for the Next 70+ years is a bigger punishment?

To me IMO, the death penalty is the easy way out.

Let the rat rot.

I don't know why.

There is no redeeming value in that walking skin bag.

Roof doesn't deserve to breathe the same air as the rest of us.

He won't, as long as he's in Solitary

And a much bigger punishment to taxpayers who foot his three square meals a day for the rest of his life.

The sad thing is this little runt will cost the system more by appealing and delaying the execution. In a perfect world, they'd just drag him out back and double tap him after the jury read the verdict.

I don't believe in life sentences. If you did something so heinous that deserves a life sentence because you are too dangerous to be let back out in public, you deserve to die. I don't want to pay for these people to rot in prison.

Un-remorseful, brainwashed, murdering piece of....., well you know what I mean.

Sure. You pay for his incarceration then.

I'm sure 99% of the honest, hard working tax payers want this waste if space home as soon as possible.

The jury did "what they felt like they had to do", too, you skid mark.

Ooopsies on the race war, too, skid mark. Enjoy Hell.

cost of death penalty v 70 odd years behind bars is a no brainer..

A execution if that is what the court has ruled for should be swift, I hate hearing about these botched executions where people take ages to die, on that note they should use a guillotine. I cannot think of a more no f#cking about method that gets the job done every time..

He deserves death and whatever additional punishment might follow (after death).

Justice has been served.

Cases without the death penalty cost $740,000, while cases where the death penalty is sought cost $1.26 million. Maintaining each death row prisoner costs taxpayers $90,000 more per year than a prisoner in general population. There are 714 inmates on California's death row.


Well this is for California, so I'm not sure how far off the numbers are.

Hopefully they can carry out this sentence in an expedient fashion and the world can be rid of this scumbag. But what are the odds of the defense not appealing this conviction?

My first choice, too.

I don't want to pay for these people to rot in prison.

Keep him on a chain gang and work him 20 hours a day. An hour for breakfast, an hour for lunch, an hour for dinner, and an hour to sleep.

After what he did, that's not too much to ask.
