AME Emanuel Church Shooting
A jury has reached a death penalty verdict for Dylann Roof, the man who shot and killed nine church members at the historically Black Emanuel AME church in Charleston, South Carolina in June 2015. The verdict came after a prosecutor reminded jurors about the "god-fearing" spirit of the church members killed during the massacre and testimonies from the victims' families and friends.
I deeply wanted to remove myself from the story. As a journalist, you are trained to be objective, neutral, and void of forcing an agenda.
