    Charleston church shooting trial postponed to next year

    During a hearing Wednesday, Judge J.C. Nicholson said he was pushing back the trial to January 2017 because Roof’s attorneys had said they needed more time to have him undergo a psychiatric evaluation, according to the Post and Courier newspaper.

    While Nicholson questioned whether the incomplete tests were a “delaying tactic,” as the hearing occurred 10 months after the shooting, he still said he felt obligated to accept the delay, the Post and Courier reported ...

    SOUTH CAROLINA
    Charleston church shooting suspect's friend to plead guilty to multiple charges


    A friend of the white man accused of fatally shooting nine black parishioners in Charleston last year is set to plead guilty to two federal charges, according to an agreement signed by federal prosecutors and filed online Monday.

    The plea would mark the first conviction in a mass killing that stunned the country, reignited discussions about race relations and led to the removal of a Confederate battle flag from the South Carolina Statehouse. Dylann Roof, who is charged with the slayings, had previously posed for photos with a rebel flag ...

    Video: U.S. to seek death penalty against accused South Carolina church shooter



    CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - Federal prosecutors will seek the death penalty for a white man accused of killing nine black parishioners in a racially motivated attack at a church in Charleston, South Carolina, last June, the U.S. Justice Department said on Tuesday.

    "The nature of the alleged crime and the resulting harm compelled this decision," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement ...

    Dylann Roof Wants Some Charges Dropped
    The white man accused of killing nine black parishioners inside a South Carolina church wants federal charges against him dismissed




    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Dylann Roof's defense team is challenging the constitutionality of the federal hate crimes law, a legal longshot they say they'll drop if prosecutors agree not to pursue the death penalty in the killings of nine people inside a South Carolina church.

    The white man accused of shooting black parishioners inside the historic Emanuel AME church in Charleston wants a judge to dismiss the nearly three-dozen federal charges he faces, saying they infringe on the state's murder case ...

    Wade Henderson, a black man, is dead wrong in this opinion


    The pursuit of capital punishment for Dylann Roof is a step backward


    Wade Henderson is president and chief executive of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights.

    On Nov. 7 in Charleston, S.C., a federal court will begin selecting a jury in the death penalty prosecution of Dylann Roof, the accused killer of nine African American worshipers at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. At first glance, the notion of a white man facing the death penalty for murdering black people in the South — in a killing inspired by the murderer’s racist views — may seem like a marker of racial progress ...

    The pursuit of capital punishment for Dylann Roof is a step backward

    The death penalty in the South should be abolished, not “equally” applied to whites and blacks.

    How disrespectful to say Mr. Roof and then say Ms Lynch to a married women :facepalm: The editorial board is dead wrong in this assessment to drop the death penalty on Roof, smh.


    Drop the death penalty for Dylann Roof

    By Editorial Board October 26 at 7:18 PM


    IN AUTHORIZING the death-penalty prosecution of Dylann Roof, the white man accused of murdering nine people in a racially motivated assault at a historic African American church in Charleston, S.C., Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch cited the “nature of the alleged crime and the resulting harm.” There can be no disagreement about the merciless horror that occurred June 17, 2015, or about the evidence of Mr. Roof’s culpability. But we question whether justice is best served by pressing ahead with not one but two trials seeking the death penalty in the face of Mr. Roof’s offer to plead guilty in exchange for life in prison without possibility of release ...

    Yes Ma'am, I'm with you on that Arianne, Loretta seems to have the tenacity to stay the course; let's also hope that Hillary keeps her as the nation's top cop, while we are it.

    Thanks for exposing Roof to be the shallow person he really is, mon ami.:)
