Man arrested for threatening neighbor with shotgun over chickens

“According to a department press release, the altercation stemmed from an argument over roaming chickens. Lewis' neighbor, David Rigney, 51, told deputies he asked Lewis to remove chickens that had wandered onto his yard. Rigney said Lewis responded by returning to the property armed with a shotgun, which he pointed at Rigney and "threatened to shoot and kill him." Lewis allegedly said, “I’m gonna kill you, white trash.”

Dylann Roof pleads guilty to state charges in church massacre

Typically people will agree to plead guilty to a capitol crime in order to avoid the death penalty. However, Dylann Roof is already under a federal death penalty, so it is hard to discern what his motivation was by pleading guilty to state murder charges. Perhaps he just wanted to get it over with and not drag out the court proceedings. I’m sure the tax payers of South Carolina appreciate the gesture. Now Roof is headed for the federal penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana where he will eventually get the needle. Like Timothy McVeigh.

“The deal reached in the Charleston County Courthouse clears the way for his federal imprisonment, on death row, to begin.”

"This is the surest way to see that Dylann Roof is executed," said Scarlett A. Wilson, solicitor for the state's Ninth Judicial Circuit. "We hope that today truly will close a chapter for these victims." The deal means no state trial or sentencing phase will be necessary.

Roof pleaded guilty to nine murder charges, three attempted murder charges, and one weapons charge. He was sentenced to nine consecutive life sentences and three consecutive 30-year sentences.”

‘Roof told investigators in a recorded interview that he committed the crime because "black people are killing white people every day."

Which is true. Black on white murder happens much more frequently than the reverse. Somewhere in the country a white person will be murdered by a black person each and every day. Each and every day 100 white women will be raped by black men in the USA, whereas ten or less black women will be raped by white men each year. This is supported by the statistics gathered by the FBI for its annual Uniform Crime Report (UCR).

Dylann Roof pleads guilty to state charges in church massacre

Charleston, South Carolina (CNN)Dylann Roof, who shot to death nine people in a historically black church in Charleston, South Carolina, pleaded guilty Monday afternoon to all state charges in the killings.

Roof was sentenced to death by a federal jury back in January for the June 2015 massacre at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.

The deal reached in the Charleston County Courthouse clears the way for his federal imprisonment, on death row, to begin.

"This is the surest way to see that Dylann Roof is executed," said Scarlett A. Wilson, solicitor for the state's Ninth Judicial Circuit. "We hope that today truly will close a chapter for these victims."

The deal means no state trial or sentencing phase will be necessary.

Roof pleaded guilty to nine murder charges, three attempted murder charges, and one weapons charge. He was sentenced to nine consecutive life sentences and three consecutive 30-year sentences.

Words of forgiveness, faith

He did not speak in court Monday, except to offer mostly one-word answers to questions from the judge.

Family members of victims spoke of forgiveness and resilience in the face of grief and hatred.

"The impact to the church has been far-reaching," the church's pastor, the Rev. Eric Manning, said in court. "We visit the crime scene every day. The impact has been felt throughout our entire congregation.

"Love is stronger than hate. Hate will never win."

Roof's grandfather, Joe Roof, said he and his family have been heartbroken.

"We are just sick over what has happened to these families," he said. "We have them in our prayers every night, every meal. It's the only thing we can do. What happened here, I will never understand."

Roof headed to federal death row

Roof is expected to be transferred to a facility in Terre Haute, Indiana, becoming the 63rd person on federal death row.

Roof told investigators in a recorded interview that he committed the crime because "black people are killing white people every day."

At the federal trial, Assistant US Attorney Jay Richardson said the admitted white supremacist scouted out his target multiple times, and sat with the church group in a Bible study class for 40 minutes before shooting. Richardson said Roof pulled the trigger "more than 75 times ... reloading seven times" as he stood over his victims, shooting them repeatedly.
