DC sniper Muhammad set to die by lethal injection
Breitbart ^ | 10-27-09 | AP

Posted on 10/27/2009 7:24:29 PM PDT by STONEWALLS

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The mastermind of the 2002 Washington, DC-area sniper attacks will die by lethal injection next month, Virginia officials said Tuesday. John Allen Muhammad declined to choose between lethal injection and electrocution, so under state law the method defaults to lethal injection, Virginia Department of Corrections spokesman Larry Traylor said.

Muhammad is scheduled to be executed Nov. 10 for the October 2002 slaying of Dean Harold Meyers at a Manassas gas station during a string of shootings.

The three-week killing spree in October 2002 left 10 dead in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

...this guy was captured at a rest area on I-40 about 15 miles from where I lived at the time...everybody was hoping he would violently resist so law enforcement could have shot him to death...the legal costs on the taxpayers are terrific on this kind of case.

You mean I-70, right? I-40 runs further south through Tenn. and NC. ;)

I prefer he be executed by a Marine Sniper from ~1000 yards away using a Barrett .50.

He’d live on and on in Maryland had John Ashcroft not taken control of the prisoner and moved him from Maryland to Virginia for prosecution.

Doug Gansler, the current AG in Maryland, was the DA in Montgomery County at the time, and ruled out bringing capital charges to the sniper and the minor sniper.

His flowery quote was something along the lines of “we don’t kill children in Maryland”, or some such nonsense.

Ashcroft, to his everlasting credit, had enough of this liberal and made sure the DC sniper landed in a capital punishment state.

And now he will pay for his crimes.

Law enforcement in that region really looked bad, if memory serves, and it was non-police citizens that basically captured this guy if I recall.

I remember the police chief in that case was an absolute bozo.

I think that all charges should be dropped and Mr. Muhammad should be released immediately from prison. Then he should be shot in the head with while standing at the curb waiting for his "freedom" bus.

My question is ...why did it take so long? Seven years time from the cowardly murders to execution. One year would have been plenty of time to hear appeals, etc, if the justice system was working properly.

I agree, but he should not be told exactly when or where.

Yes. Chief Moose was looking for an “angry white male loner in a white van” despite numerous reliable reports of exact descriptions of the perps..

Care to take bets on how long it will take Holder to stay the execution and have the perp set free? This would not surprise me at all.

Yes. I forget the exact number, but I think they had computer records of the two perps passing through check points set up after the shootings about a dozen times. But they didn’t notice until after they were arrested—no thanks to Moose. It would have been an elementary method to go through the records and check out any drivers who came up more than once at the checkpoints—but they didn’t bother.

Well, what are the odds he really will die next month? I’m sure there will be more appeals. Maybe the Wise Latina Woman will let him off.

I shoulda put a sarc tag on my comment. Right up to the day they were caught, everybody was looking for a white van, all the while they used that full sized sedan.

All sorts of things can go wrong. Just like injections - sometimes they can't find a vein. What if he ballooned up in jail and they can't find a neck?

What I remember most about this story, was the fact it was so huge and it dominated the summer tv coverage. Until the perps didnt fit the profile the media had portrayed all summer long (angry cgristian white guy). Once they were found out to be muslim nut jobs, this story vanished off the radar promptly

I was living in Maryland at the time. I read later that cops, who threw up checkpoints after several of the shooting scenes, recorded Muhammad and Malvo’s car and license plate several times, each in different locations near the crime scenes. A totalk of 8-10 times overall. Nothing ever happened, no one connected the dots. Christ, Barney Fife ccould have done that!

That racist buffoon Chief Moose, who got a bunch of lawsuit money from a hotel chain he said discrimanated against him when he was a chief in Oregon before this, wrote a book about the sniper case (If I was him, I wouldn’t brag about my role) and got into hot water with the county who employed him about the money he made.

The DC affirmative action hire-equally clueless during the sniper rampage was Charles Ramsey-now working his magic in Philly.

“You mean I-70, right? I-40 runs further south through Tenn. and NC. ;)”
...you’re exactly right my friend!....it was I-70 and I believe it was a trucker that noticed the killer’s car and called it in....if I remember right the trucker then applied for the reward money...but I don’t know if he ever got it.

....their car was a Chevy with the back seat removed...they could crawl straight back to the trunk and shoot thru a peep hole....the fact that they went to the trouble to modify the vehicle specifically for killing innocent people was chilling.

Muhammad was an angry black guy that converted to Islam...I expect more of this kind of thing in the future...in Virginia, victim’s relatives can come to the execution....there should be quite a number of people requesting a seat....here’s a woman coming all the way from Tuscon:

(I-70; and I know the Myersville rest stop quite well - but not as well as the Myersville McDonald’s further east! ;-) )

The good news here is that this seems to be the quickest real justice is ever doled out these days. 7 years to die. Usually it’s more like 50.

Will there be “pro-life” protesters out there in VA for this event? Candlelight vigils and all that garbage?

Yeah, yet Moose was lionized here.

Even up here in Howard Co., you’d see banners from bridges saying “THANKS MOOSE”.

For what? Showboating every hour on TV?

“it dominated the summer tv coverage.”

Actually, it was Fall - started in September.

I’ll never forget hearing about this the 1st time as I drove to a luncheon for my project group for a job well done in September. As a result we talked of it a bit at the restaurant.

On the radio then I heard them talking about a white Isuzu SUV! A little later it was a “white panel truck”. Then it got more general than that - some white van or truck.

The car, incidentally, was 1 of the last good Caprices. It was blue and just like a witness at the evening DC shooting said (ignored, apparently).
