D.C. Sniper Mohammed to be Executed Tonight


In about one hour, at 9:00pm EDT, the D. C. sniper John Allen Mohammed will be put to death by lethal injection in the state of Virginia.

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court declined without comment to consider the appeal and stop the execution of Mohammed. Additionally Virginia governor Tim Kaine refused to stay the execution, clearing the way for legal and just punishment to be served to the man who, in 2002, planned and executed terrorist shootings that left 10 dead and a community afraid to leave their homes.

Mohammed's three-week killing spree in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C., was carried out with teenage accomplice Lee Boyd Malvo. Malvo is serving life in prison without parole; at the time the terrorist acts were committed he was not of legal age to be considered for execution.

Muhammad was sentenced to death specifically for killing Dean Harold Meyers at a gas station in northern Virginia. He and Malvo were also suspected of fatal shootings in Alabama, Arizona, Louisiana and Washington state.

Prosecutors chose to put Muhammad and Malvo on trial in Virginia first because of the state's willingness to execute killers. He and Malvo were also convicted of six other murders in Maryland and both were sentenced to six life terms.

I hear Hasan is a big druggie. Any way we can get him in on this lethal action tonight?

Should have put it on pay per view.

Nickie - I'm not much of a drinker these days, but on this occasion I'd gladly throw one back with you!

Soloman said...

Snarky B. - if they hurry up they might catch 2-for-1 happy hour shots!

Soloman said...

Steve... what a phenomenal concept! Modern day version of the old public beheadings and such.

Good Riddance to this piece of trash. He'll roast in hell forever! It should have been pay for view, it could have helped the deficit. He lived too long as it is. Now if we could get rid of a few other terrorists like this very soon!

Soloman said...

Hey Bunni - hope you're doing well!

Just thought I'd let you all know Fox News reported that this waste of skin was pronounced dead at 9:11.

Given how he essentially used September 11, 2001 as a base for his terror-building, I'd say that's almost poetic justice.

he was a muslim so we should have let the victims families stone him to death. i assume it is a lawyer next to him with the bow tie, someone needs to poison whatever animal has taken up residence on his head.

Mr. Mohammad has received his "just deserts". And I hope the unmentionable piece of trash killer from Fort Hood gets his, too.

The world is a better place today as there is one less scumbag in it.

Mumia Abu-Jamal could be getting his soon. That dirtball has been on death row for 28 frickin' years.

This all could have been avoided if he'd just had a beer with Obama.

Soloman said...

j summ - I like the stoning idea.

Hadn't noticed the animal on the guy's head.. that looks like something that belongs on an endangered species list, or something very dangerous...

Soloman said...

TCL - ditto. I'm worried that the military will lock him up in Leavenworth for life but he'll not be executed... I don't know what kind of laws they have about capital punishment aside from treason.

Soloman said...

B&G - I so much think it's time for Mumia to go.

John Allen Muhommed - yet another Muslim terrorist not named as such by the lame-stream media. Good riddance.

Soloman said...

Candle - you're so correct. Obama and beer could be the solution to all that ails the world.

Nah..
