They young man who murdered nine people in the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston received the death penalty for his actions. The jury deliberated for three hours and honestly I am confused why it took them so long to decide. I know taking a man’s life should not be decided hastily, but with the evidence and confession it was the correct verdict. Now we wait for the murderer to be put to death, I hope knowing he is convicted will bring some level of comfort to the families of the victims.
