  • DC Sniper Muhammad Execution Date Set


    From: http://www.myfoxdc.com/dpp/news/loca...ution_date_set

    A Virginia judge on Wednesday set a Nov. 10 execution date for John Allen Muhammad, mastermind of the 2002 sniper attacks in the Washington, D.C., area that left 10 dead.

    The attorney general's office last week requested that the execution be on Nov. 9, but Prince William County Circuit Judge Mary Grace O'Brien chose a day later. The date, which falls on a Tuesday, was picked so courts would be open the day before in case they have to take up last-minute appeals, said Jonathan Sheldon, Muhammad's attorney.

    The date was picked during an early morning conference call with the judge, the attorney general's office and Sheldon.

    Sheldon said Muhammad will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court and ask Gov. Timothy M. Kaine for clemency.

    Muhammad was sentenced to death for the slaying of Dean Meyers, who was shot at a Manassas gas station during a three-week killing spree in October 2002 that left 10 dead in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

    They were also suspected of shootings in several other states, including a killing in Louisiana and another in Alabama.

    His teenage accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, is serving life in prison for the shooting spree.

    Last month a federal appeals court rejected Muhammad's argument that prosecutors withheld critical evidence and that Muhammad never should have been allowed to act as his own attorney for a portion of his trial because he was too mentally impaired.

    The attorney general's office declined to comment Wednesday.

    They said today that he can choose between the electric chair (AKA "Old Sparky") and lethal injection. Okay, but wouldn't justice be better served if he met his demise via a firing squad?

        I'm just glad that it's all going to be over soon. I was in middle school during the shootings. The first shootings that morning occured less than a mile from my home and school. I was scared out of my mind, let alone my mother and grandmother, who worried about me walking home everyday. One of the victims was my best friends uncle.

        However he gets it it is deserved.

                  I remember I was in the DC area and we ended up getting vest checks by the Lts. during that time.

                    I was in DC and assigned to the multi-agency task force that were looking for him and his punk companion.

                    I remember that when I picked up my son from child care, I shielded my body over his as I walked him to the car. People were justifiably terrified. Senseless killings.

                    I hope that ****er rots in hell.

                        Given his name, I would say that stoning is appropriate. However, I am sure it would be held to be "cruel and unusual" (as well as not authorized by statute).

                          They may be swift, but he was convicted in Virginia state court. I anticipate more appeals and habeas petitions.
