WHITE-WING CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN INDICTED MURDERER: “Dylann Roof to Defend Himself, Daughter of Emanuel AME Shooting Victim Unable to Forgive Him” / NewsOne Now / Roland Martin ☮

A federal judge has granted accused killer and White supremacist Dylann Roof’s request to represent himself in a federal trial that could result in his execution if found guilty.

Prosecutors say the 22-year-old high school dropout targeted the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston in June 2015 to start a race war.

Roof attended their Bible study for almost an hour before removing a pistol from his fanny pack and killing nine parishioners. Five people survived the massacre, two by hiding in a nearby office.

Legal experts say by representing himself, Roof could potentially cross-examine survivors and family members of the deceased, putting them face-to-face with the accused racist killer during his trial.
