WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the guilty verdicts delivered in the trial of Dylann Roof.
“This is the first and significant step in rendering justice for the nine victims who were murdered as they worshipped at Mother Emanuel AME Church. I know nothing can ever completely take away their pain, but I do hope the verdicts will provide some small measure of comfort to the families of the victims.
“If there was ever a justified guilty verdict, this was this case.”
