Roof feared mental state might block job
COLUMBIA, S.C. — Defense lawyers for Dylann Roof said the Charleston church shooter was adamant about not being ruled mentally impaired because it might prevent him from getting a high government position if white nationalists took over the country.
A judge unsealed hundreds of pages of documents Tuesday concerning Roof’s mental status. They included a letter from Roof to prosecutors just before his trial saying his lawyers were liars and the sneakiest people he had ever met.
Roof was sentenced to death for killing nine people in the 2015 racist attack.
