During the sentencing phase for the South Carolina man convicted of killing nine at a black church in 2015, federal prosecutors revealed he is capable of feeling remorse.
It’s just not an emotion Dylann Roof has extended to the nine victims he fatally shot at Emanuel African Methodist Emanuel Church, they said Wednesday. Roof was convicted last month of 33 federal counts in the deaths of the black parishioners.
Here is Roof, in his own words:
“I know that what I did will have reprecussions [sic] on my whole family, and for this I am truly sorry,” he wrote. “At this moment, I miss you very much, and as childish as it sounds I wish I was in your arms.”
