According to CNN, Dylann Roof has confessed to authorities to shooting and killing nine people this week at a historically black church in Charleston, South Carolina, two law enforcement officials said Friday.
One of the officials said that Roof, who is white, told investigators that he wanted to start a race war.
Nine people are dead from this event, countless people will never see those relatives and friends again. Killers like this wreck their lives in vain and seriously damage the lives of many people. All with some kind of warped fantasy their actions will right other wrongs.
The fact is attacks like this on innocent people NEVER solve problems, they only destroy lives and create more hate. I wish that everyone who believes they can somehow correct any wrongs with these actions could see how wrong it is.
Some might think I am being emotional when I say kill this animal but he’s already confessed killing these people. He’s also destroyed families and with that communities. It was cold blooded murder.
This is part of the problem with our legal system, why in the world should it take three years to prosecute this case. We already know without a doubt or beyond a reasonable doubt that he did it. We also know how he did it. So the only the question is why?
So three years from now they will have spent millions of tax payers dollars to announce that he is guilty, then sentence him to the death penalty where he will sit on death row for the next forty years awaiting execution at a cost of about 60,000.00 dollars a year (again taxpayer money), why?
We need to limit the time a person has for appeals to expedite these types of cases, and execute the ones sentenced to death the day after their last appeal is denied.
Maybe China does have it right. One bullet at a cost of $2.00 billed to the family.
