Death penalty appropriate for Charleston church killings
Roof's defense counsel can make their case for mercy, for a guy who allegedly showed none and attempted to start a race war. The families should also get a chance to make their case for a lesser sentence if they so desire. Under the circumstances, I would have little mercy for such a heinous crime.
In the coming trial of Dylann S. Roof, who is accused of killing nine black churchgoers last year, no issue is more disputed than whether he should face execution.
