FILE – In this June 18, 2015 file photo, Charleston, S.C., shooting suspect Dylann Storm Roof is escorted from the Cleveland County Courthouse in Shelby, N.C. When nine black churchgoers in Charleston were massacred by Roof, a white man with Confederate sympathies, the city stayed calm and the victims’ families offered examples of grace and forgiveness. Now that church shooting suspect Roof has been convicted in a federal death penalty trial, some say the parade of killings of black people feels at odds with the call to forgive.
