Roof Wanted To Be Leader Of White Supremacists

posted by 560 WVOC-AM -

There was one way Dylan Roof could have avoided the death penalty, and now we're learning why he didn't pursue that option. 

Documents released yesterday show why Roof didn't want to claim he was mentally ill when he killed members of a black Charleston church two years ago. 

Roof was hoping white supremacists would rise up, break him free from prison and elect him as governor. The documents show Roof was worried being declared mentally ill would discredit his reputation as a perfect specimen and hurt his chances of being a leader.
