D.C. sniper 10 years later: ‘I was a monster’
Yahoo ^ | 9/30/2012 | Dylan Stableford

Posted on 09/30/2012 3:57:59 PM PDT by Hunton Peck

Lee Boyd Malvo, who was convicted along with John Allen Muhammad in the 2002 D.C. sniper shootings that left 10 dead and three wounded, says he remembers the killings vividly but can't explain why he did what he did.

"I was a monster," Malvo told the Washington Post in a recent interview from a Virginia prison where he's serving six consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole. "If you look up the definition, that's what a monster is. I was a ghoul. I was a thief. I stole people's lives. I did someone else's bidding just because they said so. There is no rhyme or reason or sense."

Malvo, now 27, was a teenager at the time of the shootings. Muhammad was executed in 2009. The shooting spree lasted three weeks before the pair were arrested at a truck stop in Maryland.

"At that point in time, I had been desensitized," Malvo continued. "In the midst of the task, there is no feeling. It got to a point where I'd get in a zone. There was nothing else but whoever is before me, and anything that comes between me and, as you would say, the target, I'm either going...

Of course, "six consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole" sounds impressive, until you consider how the Supreme Court has assumed the power to change the rules at will, especially lately with regard to juveniles. So, is it remorse, or is it lobbying?

In light of the just-passed California legislation, it could well be lobbying. Also, in light of a potential Hussein pardon, or his re-election, in which we will see “executive orders” the likes of nothing we’ve ever seen before.

Doesn’t sound like remorse to me. Just looking for sympathy.

Sorry, Malvo, your normal life is over. Just too bad you are in prison instead of swinging from a rope.

Damn straight you were...who has the right to terrorize an entire populace?
I was teaching in No VA at that time...because my classroom faced the woods and was near the freeway, I had to put up construction paper over my windows so no one could see in. We had an unmarked cop car watching car pool operations. My students wanted to go trick or treating but couldn’t. My own kid was refusing to take precautions because he was not going to let these a**holes run his life so I lived in fear.
I’ll take awhile to buy this jive, if you don’t mind.

Those were NOT good times. I remember the parents at our school forming a line so the kids could go into school. The child would exit the car and parents had formed a “shield”. All those innocent lives lost. Hope he rots in prison.

Malvo and Muhammed were convicted under state law, so Hussein doesn’t have the power to pardon him under what’s left of the constitution we have for the time being.

Well, he WAS young and under the influence of an older adult...
But I feel the same as you having gone through that...
and it will take awhile to consider forgiveness.
With this following the attack on the Pentagon the year before, our students lost a lot of their innocence in those years...

To be fair the Supreme Court did not throw out life sentences for juveniles. They threw out mandatory life sentences for them. That is a major difference. A judge is still free to lock up a kid for life under the ruling.

I’ll have to give the two credit though....they both embraced the true “spirit’ of Islam....murder and mayhem.

At least they were smart enough to recognize it for what it is....phony moderates they weren’t.

That being said.....they should never see the light of day.

Most people don't know that was jihad. Malvo was making drawings with Islamic imagery, which the media didn't find newsworthy.

A sincerely remorseful person would not question his punishment, he’d accept it and make do the best he can. David Berkowitz is an example of sincere repentance. He’s never questioned his need to be incarcerated and he doesn’t even bother showing up for his parole hearings, which must take place by law.

He could still make something of himself within his prison walls if he wanted to.

Makes me angry that our tax dollars are paying to put a roof over this monster with three squares a day for the rest of his life - probably for the next 50-60 years based on average life expectancy.

Then again, I get angry about a lot of thing our tax dollars are being wasted on these days.

“.. our students lost a lot of their innocence in those years”.

I remember the parks, playgrounds etc.. being vacant. It was almost like there were no children. Yes, the kids did lose a lot of their innocence (especially since it was a year after 9/11). The most stupid thing I remember was zig-zagging across a parking lot trying to get into a grocery store. Looking back it was comical. Eight people zig zagging in a hurry trying to get groceries. Just for making me zig zag.. they should tack on another ten years. LOL!

There is a point .. just at the time someone suggests the sky is green .. that you KNOW it isn't .. and at THAT point you walk away.

To hang around just to see if it might be true, is your decision.

And you are responsable for your decision.

Hey, barry’s really into killing people, and as Malvo looks like one of soetoro’s sons, he should petition him for a pardon. He’d probably get it.

Uh, no.

None of them were *ever* looking for white dudes or white vans.

We were looking for something that would “stick out” like crazy up here in the mountains.

Several places less than 20 minutes away were ‘targets’ on the laptop they had.

Boy, did they ever pick spectacularly stupid places to ‘hit’.

The funniest one was a gas station near the state prison/police barracks/national guard armory where armed cops and reservists hang out all the time.

Oh well.

What might have been.

There had been a report of a dark sedan, at first, but some witnesses started talking about the white van. Yes, Chief Moose mentioned it, but it was the media that picked it up and ran with it, forgetting about the sedan.

We watched a show on TV a couple of weeks ago about the shootings, and how difficult it was to catch them. It turned out that a mistake on the part of the duo, and the memory of one of John Muhammed's neighbors in the NorthWest, was what brought them down.

During one of their 'stakeouts', and where they left a note for the LEO's(which I don't remember hearing about at the time;good police work), there was an empty snack bag with a fingerprint on it. When they were caught, they had the fingerprint to connect them to the scene.

And the neighbor in WA state, I think, remembered Muhammed doing target practice in his back yard, then all of a sudden, he was gone. He thought something was hinky about him, and when the shootings were going on, he called the LEOs in VA to tell them about it.

He was in the U.S. illegally. He and his "mentor" were both living at the Lighthouse Mission, a homeless shelter in Bellingham WA well prior to their shooting spree. Malvo was picked up by Border Patrol and processed for deportation. Somehow the immigration courts decided to let him go instead.

Unchecked Illegal Immigration has consequences.

I just remember at the gas station, tanking up, making sure it was on the inside of the pump, not outside, etc.
Just feeling so vulnerable...
I now have a 20 gauge pump action shot gun and plan on a concealed .38 Special in the near future....just in case.

Oh really?
So you are an expert in the psychological profile of people like this?
Did I say he should walk out of prison? Did I even say I feel sorry for him?
I do try to practice my Christian faith which, last time I looked, teaches forgiveness...which I believe I said I found hard in this incident.
As for even nearing “liberal touchy-freely crap”, I don’t need to prove to you or anybody else my conservative bona fides.
