TAKE A STAND: Dylann Roof Verdict

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - It took all of two hours for a jury to find Dylan Roof guilty on all 33 federal charges in the murders of nine worshipers at Mother Emanuel AME Church.

With a confession, surveillance video, and survivor-witness testimony, the evidence was overwhelming.

The only question left unanswered is his sentence and fate. The same jury will reconvene in early January to determine if Dylann Roof will be put to death.

Whatever your stance on the death penalty, if ever there were a case to justify, this is probably it. A man invited into church who said he was there to worship opened fire and took nine innocent lives.

Dylan Roof is a self-confessed racist, killer and monster. The guilty verdict is only the first part of justice.

Roof is planning to represent himself during the sentencing phase, only reinforcing the famous quote from Abraham Lincoln that a man who represents himself has a fool for a client.
