We all remember Dylan Roof. He is the white supremacist who was sentenced to death In January for the murder of 9 African Americans, when he went on a shooting spree while they were at their place of worship, Emanuel AME Church in Charleston S.C., back in 2015.
Roof has filed a handwritten request to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday, to fire his lawyers, stating :
“My two currently appointed attorneys, Alexandra Yates and Sapna Mirchandani, are Jewish and Indian respectively. It is therefore quite literally impossible that they and I could have the same interests relating to my case,” he said in the court document obtained by Fox Carolina.
“Because of my political views, which are arguably religious, it will be impossible for me to trust two attorneys that are my political and biological enemies,”
The court will review Roof’s motion and decide whether he should be appointed new attorneys. Hopefully, the federal appeals court will laugh at the matter with no consideration to reopening the case. Below is a copy of the letter Roof sent to the Federal Appeals Court.
