Meg Kinnard, political/legal reporter for The Associated Press, joins Doc Thompson to give an update about Dylan Roof who was sentenced to death by the jury in South Carolina.
As the sentence was given to Dylan and Doc asks; "...when he got the sentence. What was what was that like?"
Meg was inside the courtroom and said; "when the sentence came down at least on the part of the family members I think they do feel a little bit of relief. They might now actually be able to take one step toward whatever closure means after you lose a loved one in such a brutal fashion."
Doc points out that this trial can be hard for the families and friends that were killed inside the church and Meg points out; "but you know I think that these families in particular many of them went to court the first time Dylann Roof was there. Some of them expressed mercy that they were praying for him and said that you know they just wished that God would have mercy on him for what he had done."
