...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.

John Allen Muhammad declined to choose between lethal injection and electrocution
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.

Good. Those were scarry times for alot of people.
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.

Muhammad is scheduled to be executed Nov. 10
Had that been done to his namesake in the 7th century we'd have enjoyed a much brighter world.

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

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?
