Dylann Roof Calls His Attorneys 'Biological Enemies,' Petitions To Replace Them

Dylann Roof Calls His Attorneys 'Biological Enemies,' Petitions To Replace Them

Earlier this year, 12 federal jurors sentenced Roof to the death penalty for killing nine worshipers at Emanuel AME Church.

Dylann Roof has made legal history, being the first U.S. citizen to face both a state and federal death penalty at the same time.

The racist mass murderer is on death row at Terre Haute Federal Prison in IN but is fighting to appeal his conviction and sentence at a court in Richmond, Virginia.

After his death sentence was imposed, Roof asked for new lawyers so he didn't have to continue with Bruck and his team, saying "I just don't trust them".

Roof's efforts to "look past" Bruck's Hebraic background actually took the form of threatening to kill the man if Roof ever got out of jail. "Because of my political views, which are arguably religious, it will be impossible for me to trust two attorneys that are my political and biological enemies." he wrote. He penned the motion from an IN prison that houses the federal execution chamber. "The lawyer appointed to represent me at my federal trial was David Isaac Bruck, who is also Jewish", wrote Roof, who is from the Columbia area.

"My two now appointed attorneys, Alexandra Yates and Sapna Mirchandani are Jewish and Indian, respectively", Roof wrote in the motion.

Roof also said that there were problems with his former lawyer David Bruck (left) because he is Jewish.

Roof's motion is from himself, not any lawyer acting on his behalf.

This irked Roof and compelled him to represent himself during the hearing.

Yates and Mirchandani were appointed after Roof's sentencing in January, and are about to be shown the door.

Mirchandani works is a staff attorney for James Wyda, the federal public defender for Maryland.

During the trial, Roof confessed that he carried out the cold-blooded killings to trigger a racial war in the United States.
