RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to block Tuesday's scheduled execution of sniper mastermind John Allen Muhammad.
The Court did not comment Monday on why it refused to consider his appeal.
Muhammad is scheduled to die by injection at a Virginia prison for the slaying of Dean Harold Meyers at a gas station during a three-week spree in October 2002 across Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

Justice will be served...as long as the Rat doesn’t mess things up!
I love good news!!
Is SCOTUS simply racist or also anti-Islam? I would not want to jump to any conclusions.....
Seven years was to long. They should have excuted him within 72 hours. That seems to be the magic number these days. We need to start getting real about this stuff.
Yup. Good news on a Monday.
Anohter Muzzy terrorist scumbag who is going to get his 72 Helen Thomases.
Still waiting for Obama to commute the sentence!
Good! That’s a step in the right direction, at least.
This is what I'm worried about. Kaine is a strange man. Plus, he doesn't have an incoming VA Dem governor to protect. I hope commutation isn't a real possibility here.
They could be jumping to conclusions....
Looks like Obeyme’s rookie “Hispanic tool” lady couldn;t override the other judges.
Obama was hoping to be let off the hook by the SCOTUS on this one. Expect him to now intervene.
You'd be waiting a long time. Mohamed was convicted in state court. As such, only the governor may commute his sentence. It's completely out of the President's hands, even Obama's.
I am sure the “alleged mass shooter” (/s) will yell “Allah Akbar” before he is put to death.
I dont think Kaine will stop it. He hasn’t stopped a number of other executions, and this is the most egregious case of all.
OTOH, Tim Kaine is foremost a democRat partisan. After last week's electoral beat-down, I think the last thing he wants to do is give the Republicans yet another cudgel with which to smite the 'Rats.
If Kaine tries to interfere, the Democrats in Virginia are finished forever.
I hate to see them waste good drugs like that, when there’s still lead available.
I say we tie him to a big post about 2500 meters from the executioner, and let the guy get some practice in against a live target.
Just the near miss value would be sensational, as this guy realized how his victims felt in a way nobody else ever would.
Heck, I’d pay extra for about five near misses just so the prick could experience the terror of those projectiles going by less than one or two feet off target.
Though I’m sure the NY Times headline tomorrow will be:
VIRGINIA EXECUTE MUHAMMAD.
