According to Buzzfeed News' reporter, Claudia Koerner, White supremacist Dylann Roof filed a petition to remove the court-appointed defenders seeking to spare him the death penalty, calling them his "political and biological enemies."

The white supremacist murdered nine people at a Charleston church is now seeking to fire his attorneys because of their race and religion.
In a handwritten request, he wrote, "My two currently appointed attorneys, Alexandra Yates and Sapna Mirchandani, are Jewish and Indian, respectively," Roof wrote. "It is therefore quite literally impossible that they and I could have the same interests relating to my case."

The unemployed high-school dropout was arrested and was assigned court-appointed lawyers on his behalf, one of whom is David Bruck, who is known for his experience in capital cases. Prior to the hearing, Roof threatened to kill Bruck if he ever got out of jail.

Koerner goes on to write that despite this threat, "Still, just days later in court, Bruck pleaded for the judge to allow him to take over the arguments that Roof should be spared the death penalty."

"I have to be heard on his behalf because he cannot do it,” Bruck told the judge. "This man cannot protect his own rights. He cannot do it...This is his sentencing, not a memorial service."

In the motion filed Monday, Roof bristled at Bruck's earlier attempt to save his life because the attorney is Jewish.

"His ethnicity was a constant source of conflict, even with my constant efforts to look past it," Roof wrote.

When I read the article above, I knew immediately that I wished to share it. What do you think?

In 1964 mobster Moe Dalitz combined the use of the n word with a death threat in an exchange with boxer Sonny Liston. The ADL later awarded him with a "Torch of Liberty" award.

He is asking for the death penalty. Personally I feel carrying out an execution always is wrong. There should be no such judicial travesty. But if the wishes of the accused and the accusers coincide so starkly, then I say: why not?
