Prosecutors Will Seek the Death Penalty for Dylann Roof for Charleston Black Church Massacre

Ugh. State is already seeking the death penalty. Question if the feds even should prosecute in a crime that is heinous but seems local (basically hate crime charges provide federal hook). There was already a big move by victims to forgive him and not dwell on revenge. Who knows the details, but there appears to have been an offer of a plea/life imprisonment on the table. Whole thing seems gratuitous even without double jeopardy concerns.
