Dylann Roof, the alleged gunman in a bloody South Carolina church massacre which left nine black churchgoers dead, will represent himself in a federal trial set to begin in a matter of days.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Gergel granted Roof’s motion to represent himself Monday. The move is especially risky for Roof as prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty if he is convicted. With such high stakes, proceeding without legal counsel is an astonishing, and a dangerous move for the 22-year old. The judge warned Roof this course of action is “strategically unwise.”

Roof will have the prerogative to give an opening statement, cross examine witnesses called by the prosecution, and call witnesses in his own defense.

Roof faces 33 federal charges: nine counts of violating the Hate Crime Act resulting in death; three counts of violating the Hate Crime Act involving an attempt to kill; nine counts of obstruction of exercise of religion resulting in death; three counts of obstruction of exercise of religion involving an attempt to kill and use of a dangerous weapon; nine counts of use of a firearm to commit murder during and in relation to a crime of violence.

Gergel ruled that Roof was competent to stand trial last Friday. Roof’s lawyers halted jury selection earlier this month, claiming their client lacked the mentally fitness to participate in his own defense. They urged the judge to postpone the trial until such time that medical and psychiatric experts advised that he was competent enough to stand trial.

A psychiatric expert evaluated Roof earlier this month, and submitted an evaluation to the court. He also reviewed several sworn states concerning Roof’s mental state.

Jury selection resumed Monday morning. The trial will begin once the jury is seated.

Maybe he's hoping to get the needle and get it over with so he's throwing out any chance of the long term.
...maybe he's looking for a death sentence.
Even with guilty verdicts and death sentences across the board, executing somebody who wants execution out of a sense of martyrdom will be a can of worms that'll keep him alive for years.

I understand if you are the one convicted you can slow things down for decades with appeals etc, but if you are trying to fast track you the state can slow things up?

Is there a reason why "nigg.er" filters to "Google"? I know Zoë Quinn's the reason for the C0ke Zer0 filter.

It takes a while either way. Timothy McVeigh didn't wanna take it slow, and it still took half a decade to execute him.

Hopefully the hideous "Law and Order" babble of the Trump administration at least gives us this useless bitch's death in return.

@AnOminous do most defendants who choose to represent themselves choose to so they can make their trial into a sideshow?

Cuz if there's one thing criminals love, it's control. And if this clown can control the court with shenanigans I bet he will do it

edit: to keep sperging, in the criminal mentality, they would rather create a negative situation that they can control rather than be complicit in a positive situation. Loud outbursts and just being walking hell in public are generally examples of this, like that one kid in high school who would rip up his test in the middle of a silent class room and say "Fuck this shit, man!"

It is also an ego stroking for a 'martyr' to show he is ready to die for his cause. Or her, as the pedo teacher thread shows.

That's usually the result. They usually do it because they're fucking nuts, though. Or just stupid enough to think it's a good idea.
Well you do know what they say about the lawyer who has himself as a client.
Very true.
