Dylan Roof was sentenced to death on Tuesday for murdering nine people in a South Carolina church on June 17, 2015. Parishioners of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church had invited him into their prayer service. He spent an hour with them before he pulled out a gun and shot 10 people multiple times. Nine of them died.
Today the families of the victims got an opportunity to face him. Some forgave him, others called him the devil. The lone survivor Felicia Sanders who was also the mother of one of the victims, was one of the people who said she forgave him. According to ABC News she said,
‘That’s the easiest thing I had to do. But you don’t want to help somebody who don’t want to help themselves…’ ‘May God have mercy on your soul.’
