Roof Sentenced to Death

[Content Note: Violent eliminationism; white supremacy; death penalty.]

I don't support the death penalty in any case, so I'm reporting this with regret, even though I loathe what Dylann Roof did with the fiery passion of ten thousand suns.

I suspect that there may be survivors of his victims who also do not support the death penalty in any case, and thus may be further grieved and/or traumatized by this verdict. I am thinking about them, with my sympathies. I am thinking of all the other survivors of his victims, too, and I wish them peace, which I'm sure will not come easy, if ever.
