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.

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.

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 dont think Kaine will stop it. He hasn’t stopped a number of other executions, and this is the most egregious case of all.

Nothing's for sure until the mohammedan creep has assumed room temperature.

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.

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.

Another case of Individual Jihad Syndrome (in this case there were two of them) where radical Muslims in this country take up arms against our nation. Sgt. Akbar in 2003, and now Major Hasan here in 2009 are the same...and there have been others.

All of them should die for their crimes. Muhammed will die Tuesday, Akbar has been sentenced to die...and I belive Hasan will be too.

Sadly though, I do not expect the current occupant of the White House to form in direct, meaningful, or effective response to the situation of these enemies operating within.

I never realized that the President's power to pardon was limited to crimes against the United States. Thanks!

The Court did not comment Monday on why it refused to consider his appeal

But it did have something to say:

JUSTICES' FULL STATEMENT:

This case highlights once again the perversity of executing inmates before their appeals process has been fully concluded. Under our normal practice, Muhammad’stimely petition for certiorari would have been reviewed at our Conference on November 24, 2009. Virginia hasscheduled his execution for November 10, however, so we must resolve the petition on an expedited basis unless we grant a temporary stay. By denying Muhammad’s stay application, we have allowed Virginia to truncate ourdeliberative process on a matter—involving a death row inmate—that demands the most careful attention. This result is particularly unfortunate in light of the limited time Muhammad was given to make his case in the District Court.

I continue to believe that the Court would be wise to adopt a practice of staying all executions scheduled inadvance of the completion of our review of a capital defendant’s first application for a federal writ of habeas corpus.See, e.g., Emmett v. Kelly, 552 U. S. 942 (2007) (STEVENS, J., joined by GINSBURG, J., respecting denial of certiorari); Breard v. Greene, 523 U. S. 371, 379 (1998) (STEVENS, J., dissenting). Such a practice would give meaningful effect to the distinction Congress has drawn between first andsuccessive habeas petitions. See 28 U. S. C. §2244(b). It would also serve the interests of avoiding irreversibleerror, facilitating the efficient management of our docket, and preserving basic fairness by ensuring death row inmates receive the same procedural safeguards that ordinary inmates receive.

Having reviewed petitioner’s claims, I do not dissent from the Court’s decision to deny certiorari. “I do, however, remain firmly convinced that no State should be allowed to foreshorten this Court’s orderly review of . . . first-time habeas petition[s] by executing prisoners before that review can be completed.” Emmett, 552 U. S., at 943.

If they do it, it will be a battlecry going into 2010. The GOP would win the biggest majority since the supermajority the Dems had in the Seventies.

I can’t seem to be comfortable with the fact that he is going to essentially be put to sleep. The only comfort I have is from the notion that the victim’s families will have closure from his execution, but given the terror he caused this entire area, and the degree to which his victims and victim’s families suffered, I have a hard time coming to terms with the way this will end.
