Dylann Roof has now been sentenced to death after the Charleston church shooting. Roof told the jury that he “had” to do it. He reportedly did nothing to try and justify himself. Honestly, he had nothing to really defend.

Roof told the jury,

“I still feel like I had to do it.”

He then went on to say,

“In my confession to the FBI, I told them that I had to do it. But obviously that’s not really true. I didn’t have to do it, and no one made me do it. What I meant when I said that was I felt like I had to do it, and I still feel like I had to do it. Anyone who hates anything in their mind has a good reason to hate,”

The government is asking that Roof get sentenced to death. Roof is currently representing himself. He did not call any witnesses to the stage. Instead he told the jury that he is not mentally imbalanced. He says there is nothing wrong with him psychologically and did not apologize for his actions. As he concluded his remarks, he said,

“Only one of you has to disagree.”

He went on to say,

“I know that at least some of you were asked during jury selection … if you were willing to stand up for your own opinion,”
