A new University of South Carolina poll says most African-American South Carolinians don’t think Dylann Roof should get the death penalty.
They say it won’t bring justice and the accused Charleston church shooter should instead face life without parole.
On the other hand most Caucasian South Carolinians said Roof should get the death penalty.
The same poll found most people, regardless of race, supported the decision to charge former North Charleston officer Michael Slager with murder in the shooting death of Walter Scott.
They were also nearly unanimous in wanting more police officers to wear body cameras.
The majority of African-Americans polled also said police are too quick to use deadly force.
