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...

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.
Once a monster, always a monster. He should never see the light of day again.
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.
I’m no expert on this, but from everything I can tell, these two jack@sses were as gay as the day is long.
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...
You still are.
They were on their way to my area.
*Lots* of “hunters” were very sorry they didn’t make it.
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 know, but who knows what the SC might do the next time the issue comes up?
The real shame, Malvo, is you are still alive to tell us you were a monster.
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.
Whatever, his words honestly should never see the light of day.
Rot in Hell Malvo.
He may be able to extradite him. I believe he was here illegally.
