Dylann Roof defended himself
in the sentencing phase of his trial
after he was convicted of killing
nine people during a Bible study,
the nine people who welcomed him
after he walked into their church.
Had I been the judge I would have
asked Mr. Roof to approach the bench
for a private consultation and I’d have
said the court knows you’re sane
because you were certified to stand trial
and you have said insanity is not
the reason you killed these people.
You said it had to be done and you did it.
Mr. Roof, are you possessed?
