Dylann Roof: Accused Charleston Shooter Assaulted in Jail

According to an incident report from the Sheriff’s Office, Roof’s attacker, Dwayne Stafford, was charged with third-degree assault and battery. Roof was in the jail’s showering area when Stafford struck him in the face and body, bruising him but not leaving serious injuries. The fight was broken up by detention officers, and appears to have been unprovoked, according to the report.

Did he drop the soap?

If true, this is an entirely predictable event.

I think an old fashion hanging would do the trick.
That's what lawyers do. Then they try to go for life with parole possible, then down to manslaughter two, then a transfer to California where Jerry Brown will let him out due to over crowding.

Yes, that's what defense attorney's do. It's the job.

If YOU were facing criminal charges, regardless of your actual guilt or innocence, wouldn't YOU expect the defense attorney working on your case to do the best job he possibly could?

Or would you prefer a system where you are guilty until proven innocent, and dealing with trying to prove a negative? Without positive alibi evidence, or some other evidence of impossibility, an accused would never stand a chance of proving his innocence.
