Lawyers save the killer of 9 persons from the death penalty
Lawyers for the accused killer Dylan Ruth filed a lawsuit to abolish the death penalty in the United States on Monday night.

22-year-old Dylan Rufus is accused of killing nine people in historic African-American Church in Charleston, South Carolina. In 2015, Rufus was accused of 33 Federal crimes, including charges of crimes motivated by hatred for allegedly aimed at victims because of their race and religion.

"The nature of the alleged offences and the resulting harm compel the judge to make a difficult decision about the death penalty," said attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Ruth is also charged in the shooting of the participants in the study class the Bible in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, known as the Mother of Emmanuel, in downtown Charleston on June 17, 2015 Among the victims was the pastor of the Church, Reverend Clement Pinckney, who was also a state Senator.

Ruth was taken into custody in North Carolina the day after the shooting. He told investigators that he wanted to start a race war. "The facts of this case unquestionably serious", said the defense team Rufus in his defense about the death penalty. "But the decision on the death penalty is unconstitutional, no one can be legally sentenced to death or executed under the guise of the law no matter what his crimes."

His lawyers said that if Federal prosecutors will take the death penalty, then, "Mr. Ruth would plead guilty to all charges." They pointed out several reasons against the Federal death penalty, calling it "unconstitutional punishment" and what is "arbitrary, cruel and unusual punishment" violates the fifth and eighth amendment.

Three Federal prisoners, Timothy McVeigh, Juan Raul Garza and Louis Jones was executed in the United States, since the Federal death penalty was reinstated
