Convicted Murderer Dylaan Roof Declares Himself Sane and Guilty: Honor his Wishes for the Death Sentence!
Dylaan Storm Roof is a twenty-two year old, self-avowed white supremacist. Roof, with premeditation and malice, admitted that he murdered nine innocent black people at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C.
In the NYT article entitled, “Dylann Roof, Addressing Court, Offers No Apology or Explanation for Massacre,” by Aland Blinder and Kevin Sack, the accused, repeatedly assured the jury of 10 women and 2 men:
“I would like to make it crystal clear I do not regret what I did, he wrote in his distinctive scrawl. I am not sorry. I have not shed a tear for the innocent people I killed.”
His self-avowed confession as well as his clear-minded desire for the judge /jury to sentence him to death is ‘justified’. This is one of the few cases where psychiatric intervention was not necessary.
For two years, I had managed one of the maximum security wards at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital [Wash. DC] where serial killers (both white and black) were hospitalized for the duration of their lives for their presumed ‘mental-illness’. Truthfully, I found that many of them should have been executed instead of placing them in mental warehouse, falsely entitled, mental institution.
Psychiatrists and defense lawyers are the first ones to rush into a mass killing declaring the individual ‘insane’. A transparent case of this skewed, immoral justice was evident in the July 20, 2012 mass shooting that occurred inside a Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, during the midnight screening of the “The Dark Knight”. Thirty minutes into the film, James Eagan Holmes re-entered the theater wearing the following assault gear: gas mask, a load-bearing vest, a ballistic helmet, bullet resistant leggings, a throat protector, a groin protector, and tactical gloves. Do you remember that he was a 23 year old neuroscientist [working on a Phd]?
He then fired a 12-gauge Remington 870 Express Tactical shotgun, first at the ceiling and then at the audience. He also fired a Smith & Wesson M7P 15 Semi-automatic rifle with 100 round drum magazine. Finally, he fired a Glock 40 Caliber handgun. He carefully assassinated 12 people and injured 70 more. After all of that, he booby-trapped his apartment using 30 homemade grenades wired to a control box in the kitchen and 30 US gallons of gas. [all above references- Wikipedia].
After having spent extensive time and intellect to kill all these people, Holmes cleverly declared himself ‘not guilty by reason of insanity’. Any rational person could have seen that he was guilty and should have received the death penalty.
Instead, he was convicted of 24 counts of first degree murder; 140 counts of attempted first-degree murder; and, one count of possessing explosives. Now, here is the real kicker of the so-called Colorado liberal-based justice.
Holmes was given the following punishment:
- 12 life sentences one for every person he had killed
- additionally, he had received 3,316 years for attempted murder of those he had wounded and for rigging the apartment with explosives. [Wikipedia].
I have no idea what the aforementioned sentencing means in terms of real life events. Either you are executed, or not! Yet, the Colorado judiciary system created a whole new absurd lexicon for death, life, guilt and innocence. In effect, they avoided their true responsibility to assume some iota of moral courage and execute this calculated mass murderer.
Now, four years later, we have the Dylann Roof case where the defendant does not have to cower behind legal mumbo-jumbo. His self-declaration of guilt without reason of insanity is exceedingly transparent. Will the S.C judicial system also hide behind cowardly phrased legalese and not grant Roof the dignity of his request to kill him?
The American judicial system has found itself faltering behind a series of false flags initiated by Obama, Holder/Lynch where those who were never killed suddenly become a hero/heroine for a nonsensical ancillary concern: gun control. These non heroes or fake heroes have instant websites that help them raise big $$$. For what you may ask??? These fakers have absolutely nothing to do with the Aurora or the Baptist Church massacres.
Death confronts everyone! For Roof, it’s his salvation. For Holmes, it was a game in which he proved he could avoid it by hiding behind some faux psychiatric nonsense and a patently absurd sentencing.
Which one is more guilty?
Both! but so is the American Judicial system flawed with justices and lexicon based on fantasies and wishful thinking. Execute Roof and grant his wish!
It’s as simple as that!
