Instead of pursuing their case after the federal one, prosecutors agreed to a deal in which Roof would plead guilty to nine counts of murder, three counts of attempted murder and a related weapons count and face a guaranteed sentence of life in prison without parole.(H/T: John Lott)
He plead guilty (see here)Gross Travesty of Justice?
Roof never gave his victims such a choice.
[Charleston church shooter: ‘I would like to make it crystal clear, I do not regret what I did’]
JUSTICE would have been a firing squad.
But Roof is now ... what? Twenty-three years old?
By all accounts a good looking, slightly effeminate lad.
His future now is with a Prison Husband who rents him out to his 300 Best Friends.
That sounds like retribution.
Roof may welcome the shiv in his belly ... eventually.
I don't believe the lad chose wisely.
