Families Of SC Church Shooting Victims Urge Forgiveness For Dylann Roof

by Kevin Daley | The Daily Caller  |  published on November 28, 2016

The families of several victims of last year’s deadly shooting at Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C., have urged forgiveness for gunman Dylann Roof as the federal government pursues the death penalty.

Roof faces 33 federal charges, including nine counts of violating the Hate Crime Act resulting in death.

Rev. Sharon Risher, whose mother was killed in the massacre, told The New York Times she believes executing Roof would be an act of vengeance. She explained that her Christian faith instead calls her to forgiveness.

“My humanness is being broken, my humanness of wanting this man to be broken beyond punishment,” Risher said. “You can’t do that if you really say that you believe in the Bible and you believe in Jesus Christ. You can’t just waver.”

    There are two issues here. It is good to hear Dylann Roof has been forgiven by the families of the people he murdered.

    The state also has a duty to protect law abiding citizens from mass murderers. In most states the death penalty or life in prison is what someone earns for murdering people. Dylann murdered innocent people and he deserves to receive the payment for his actions.
