There is no doubt or question Roof, a horrible racist pig, is guilty of this crime, and I'm glad he's going to burn in hell for what he did to those poor people in that church.
The "I believe in the principle" people are the same folks who think we should spare Roof's life, give him free taxpayer-funded college, healthcare, a nice cell with a comfy bed, TV, and access to pretty farm to walk around, maybe some conjugal visits if some nutbar falls in love with him via mail, and of course therapy, and maybe they'll just release him back into society in a few years once he's vaguely been "reformed".
So yeah, guess I'm close to full conservative here, and glad to do it. The hatred of the victims that is personified in the "nope, lets rehabilitate him" side disgusts me.

Today we learn the best punishment system is based on satisfying feelings of revenge...
I was only disputing his idea that a life sentence would mean going easy on Dylann Roof.
