Re: “Dylann Roof shows no remorse in closing statements in capital trial

And what you omitted is that, during his interrogation, He told officers he hoped to be a martyr for his cause. He gets the death penalty, he wins.

Re: “How many witnesses does it take to sentence a confessed murderer?

Gee, Dwayne, I would have thought that as an attorney you would have known the answer, which is, "as many as we can get." The prosecutor's job in this phase is to make sure he gets the verdict he wants. If just one juror says "no" to the death sentence, it's life in prison, so the prosecutor's method is to heap on such an over-abundance of testimony that no juror could conceivably vote that "no. And you, Dwayne, as a criminal defense attorney know that.
Also, "the definition of overkill", were you really that clever to think that up by yourself?

...and when I'm elected...

Re: “How many witnesses does it take to sentence a confessed murderer?

If it were a paid by the hour attorney, I would understand why they lead a parade of witness to the stand. The prosecutor is milking his 5 minutes in the sun because this is likely the most famous case of his career.

Re: “Fake news and the miseducation of Dylann Roof

I'll have to agree with this article completely. Dylan Roof, no doubt has been miseducated, as well as under educated, but it doesn't excuse his actions. Information is like a two edge sword, and we now have an abundance of it. Some information is good and some is not. Each and everyone of us have to selectively learn to choose, from our sorce of information wisely.
