DC sniper calls himself 'this innocent black man'
ap ^ | 11/5/09 | STEVE SZKOTAK

Posted on 11/05/2009 9:42:12 AM PST by Nachum

RICHMOND, Va. — Attorneys for John Allen Muhammad released a May 2008 letter on Wednesday in which the mastermind of the deadly 2002 sniper attacks in the Washington, D.C., area proclaims his innocence.

The rambling, handwritten letter was made available because of requests for a statement from Muhammad, his attorneys wrote on the Web page of their law firm. The letter was filed in federal court in connection with Muhammad's unsuccessful attempt to block his execution, the attorneys said.

This was predictable. There will be bleeding-heart liberals rushing to his defense, claiming that a Black man can not get a fair trial in this “racist” country.

The reality is that this is terrorism and hate against the normal people of this country. If he is not executed, then the justice system in this country will be worth as much as a democrat’s campaign promises.

The lowly kufir are “guilty”. Islamic law positions muslims as superior under man’s law.

There is “no crime” in hunting kufir and waging Islamic Jihad in the West. At least that’s the belief among Islamic supremacists.

He doesn't have the power to do so - the conviction was on a state murder charge.

In the eyes of Allah he is innocent. In the eyes of Islam this is a political execution.
I would like to read his letter.

I don’t think the execution will take place. I will be very surprised if this killer does not have a fleet of lawyers petitioning for his delay.

There is a limit to the number of appeals you can file. Matters of fact cannot be appealed after the trial and sooner or later all matters of law are exhausted. A lawyer would have to make a non trivial representation that some or another legal irregularity occurred that prevents his execution. All such appeals should already have been filed. Sometimes lawyers invent novel points of law, but at best those can only buy him a day or so.

Of course he’s innocent. It’s simply racist to hold a black man to account for his actions. After all, he wouldn’t have acted that way if it weren’t for whitey’s oppression.

This case is how old? 7 years now? He’s been on death row since 2005, and I certainly haven’t heard any liberal, bleeding heart or otherwise, suggest what you surmise above. The anti death penalty types will squawk, but I don’t think you’ll find anyone (with a shred of credibility) calling for his release. Mo’s problem was that he didn’t restrict himself to killing any one type of person.

He damn near killed the kid at school (not gonna get a lot of sympathy when you try to kill kids), threatened other kids with his communication, killed the black bus driver (was that his last kill?), so black folks aren’t running to his defense either.

Should it matter if this guy is “white” or “black”? He is a killer none the less.

I believe I remember that
when they were shooting people
and hadn’t been caught,
that the profile was that of
a white man. Probably military.

(You know, the “Timothy McVeigh” type that is used by every leftist to say “SEE, not all terrorists are Muslims!”)

Reportedly Moose was chosen after Hillary put pressure on them to hire someone who was black. He might have caught the killers sooner if he hadn’t been fixated on the idea that the snipers were white (despite getting messages from the killers which used expressions peculiar to some black groups). In fact, if it had been up to Moose, they might still be terrorizing the DC area.

That’s another divergence that the left takes.

If the law/rule is applied blindly,
different “groups” are affected disparately,

proving the rule/law in and of itself is “racist” or “discriminatory”.

What an interesting "name"!! Too bad he didn't think to use "obammer" as his new last name....then he'd be free for sure!

I wonder what name those he murdered would come up with, given the chance??

Well wouldn’t you know it; another magic Negro declaring himself one of the many Black victims of the world, seems “friends of government” such as attorneys promote victimhood as a class status to be protected. Just as the conspiracy experts from U.N, C.A.I.R., Saudi-Arabia, Islamic Society of North America, Hamas, Iran, Taliban, Jama’at-i-Islami, Al’Qaka, Muslim Brotherhood, Jama’at-al-Muslimeen, ICNA, and the North American Islamic Trust…the list is long; that 911 Arab Terrorists and Jihad combatants are victims of Infidels and the West! As seen throughout history by many which have been the proxy; Islam is perdition’s agent.

Sniper suspect a member of Nation of Islam Posted by 1bigdictatorOn
10/28/2002 4:49 PM CST with 14 comments ABC News Chicago ^ |

(CHICAGO) Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan acknowledged on Saturday that suspected sniper John Allen Muhammad is a member of the religious group. But Farrakhan said the man charged in a series of shootings that left 10 people dead and three wounded would be ousted from the Chicago-based group if he is convicted of the crimes. “He has not formally been kicked out of the Nation of Islam, but certainly if he’s found guilty of something like this he would not be considered at all a member of...
