  • Black Serial Killer: Why the Media Indifference?

    Why the near media-silence over the absurdly long-delayed trial of alleged serial killer Lonnie Franklin Jr.? Franklin would seem to represent ideal grist for the voracious 24/7 national media. There is, of course, murder. He is charged with killing 10 and suspected of killing more. The crimes took place in a big, media-centric city, Los Angeles, as opposed to some obscure small town or rural community in a fly-over state ignored by national media. There is an unsolved mystery that took place over a long time. Franklin was a former city trash collector who lived quietly in South Central Los...

    One of the D.C. sniper's ex-wives said Thursday that she has fully healed from the abusive marriage she endured with him, and is helping her children cope with knowing their dad won't be a part of their lives. Mildred Muhammad, 49, told The Associated Press in a phone interview that she and her three children watched news coverage of John Muhammad's execution in silence at their Maryland home. When his death was announced, the children - John, 19, Salena, 17, and Taalibah, 16 - went into different rooms and cried. "It was very difficult to see them in that kind...

    Lee Boyd Malvo, testifying in a Rockville courtroom yesterday, called his former mentor and convicted sniper mastermind John Allen Muhammad a "coward" and said he is offering his side of the 2002 attacks "for the victims, for what it's worth, if anything." "I am not proud of myself, and I'm just trying to make amends, if possible," said Malvo, 21, at the end of a dramatic day in the trial of Muhammad, who faces the death penalty in six fatal Montgomery County sniper attacks -- part of a three-week shooting spree that killed 10 persons in the Washington area.

    Prosecutors will not seek the death penalty against convicted Washington-area sniper John Allen Muhammad when he goes on trial in May, the Montgomery County state's attorney said Thursday. Prosecutor Douglas Gansler said late Thursday that "underlying the entire decision was the fact that Muhammad has received a death sentence in Virginia." Muhammad, 45, was sentenced to death after being convicted in a sniper shooting in Manassas, Va. Lee Boyd Malvo, 20, who also is a defendant in the case, was sentenced to life in prison for a shooting in Falls Church, Va. Ten people were killed in the Washington area...

Hey, who wouldn't want an "eager beaver" in their jurisdiction with a zest for convicting the bad guys?

Mr. Gansler fervently states absolutely not; he's only doing his sworn duty. After all, six of the 10 sniper victims were killed in Montgomery County, which was...

Malvo was cast as a clueless dupe with no true convictions. * Nihad Awad of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) argued: "There...

    CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) -- Sniper suspect Lee Boyd Malvo has mental diseases that left him "psychologically numb" and legally insane because he couldn't tell right from wrong, a defense psychiatrist said. During the months he lived with convicted sniper John Allen Muhammad starting in 2000, Malvo lost his sense of identity and became vulnerable to Muhammad's wishes and "intense, coercive persuasion," psychiatrist Neil Blumberg testified Wednesday in Malvo's murder trial. Malvo's dissociative disorder that allowed him to tune out reality, his depression and a childhood "conduct disorder" of shoplifting and cat-killing all meant Malvo was "unable to distinguish between right...

    While the D.C. snipers were on the loose, there was speculation about whether the murders were another instance of Islamic terrorism. (Not from the authorities, of course, who were fixated on finding a white man in a white van.) When the snipers were caught, and the adult turned out to be John Muhammad, a converted Muslim who, among other things, had shot up a synagogue, one might have expected such speculation to re-surface. But for the most part, it didn't, and reference to the snipers' Muslim faith has been studiously avoided in the mainstream press.Now Lee Malvo is on...

    In Virginia Beach they're into jury selection in the capital murder trial of John Muhammad, one of two implicated in the sniper shootings that terrorized the D.C. area south to Richmond a year ago. The trial may last two months. The trial of his alleged young accomplice, Lee Malvo, is set to begin later in nearby Chesapeake. Muhammad, who has pleaded not guilty, may be found innocent. But circumstantial evidence of his involvement abounds. In the realm of motive if Muhammad participated in or helped plan the sniper shootings, why? the principal piece of evidence, apparently carrying telltale...

Little if any indicates Mr. Muhammad fired a shot.

    Sniper suspect John Muhammad fits a pattern of a disaffected outcast who becomes increasingly radicalized under the influence of Islamism, says a military analyst who writes frequently about terrorism. Christian M. Weber, contributing editor for Soldiers for the Truth, an organization headed by Col. David Hackworth, writes that Muhammad seems to follow the model of John Walker Lindh, Richard Reid and Jose Padilla men exposed to Islamism who become disenchanted with the movement's pace and progress and who take the road to jihad. "As one traces John Muhammad's life from his conversion to Islam in 1985, to his joining...
  • The 'loser' label doesn't fit the sniper

    From the outset of the sniper drama one word has been hauled out repeatedly by commentators to describe him: "loser." In the beginning, the moniker seemed both reasonable and appropriately censorious. For within a culture that venerates bright, shiny-penny winners -- be it the last person standing on Survivor or the guy who tops Forbes magazine's annual "richest" list -- there are few more damning social stigmas than being labeled a loser. Never mind that the criticism had a smug schoolyard taunt aspect to it, implying as it does that the object of such scorn is of a different strata...

    Linda Chavez (archive)October 30, 2002Profiling gone bad From President Bush on down, it seems everyone is opposed to racial profiling -- that is, unless white men comprise the group of likely suspects. For the three weeks that two snipers terrorized the Maryland and Virginia suburbs around the nation's capital, we heard endless speculation by government officials, experts and media commentators that the killings were likely the handiwork of an angry white man -- or men. It's the same rhetoric we heard repeatedly in the as-yet-unsolved anthrax attacks that killed five people a year ago. By assuming they "knew" the race...

    John Muhammad timeline - early 1990's In 1985, John Williams (John Muhammad) joined the Army, and soon afterwards, converted to Islam. In 1991, Williams was a mechanic and demolitions expert assigned to operation Desert Storm. He possibly disagreed with the US attacking an Islamic country, and its presence in Islamic holy land. About Feb 21, 1991 - A few nights before the invasion of Iraq, a Sergeant's tent was firebombed with a U.S. thermite grenade. Williams, who worked with explosives and had been very insubordinate was immediately suspected. The Army's Criminal Investigation Division was notified, and Williams was taken...

    RELIGION OF PEACE WATCH by Don Feder http://www.donfeder.com/news.ivnu (October 28, 2002) Three incidents last week highlight the peaceable nature of Islam and provide further evidence of just how fortunate we are to have millions of adherents of this enlightened faith living among us. Incident #1 - In Paris, novelist Michel Houellebecq was acquitted by a French court of inciting racial hatred against Moslems when he declared in an interview last year that Islam was "the most stupid religion." In most of Europe, political correctness has reached a fevered pitch -- You can be criminally prosecuted for saying something that...

    WASHINGTON - A gunman named Muhammad has terrorized the Washington area for weeks. He was a follower of Louis Farrakhan and joined the security detail at the Million Man March in Washington in 1996. He had expressed admiration for the 9/11 terrorists and violent hatred for the infidel United States. So: Could this murderous rampage have anything to do with, um, Islamic terror? If you have been watching television you already know the answer: Naaaah. Sometimes it seems that the single most important prerequisite for a successful media career is a talent for ignoring the obvious. Every interviewer on television...

    Rita Cosby interviewed Montgomery, AL Mayor Bobby Bright and Police Chief John Wilson. Wilson told Cosby he was very concerned because both Muhammed and Malvo were on foot, being chased by police officers. The chase was interrupted by a large blue car that Muhammed ran into, putting both hands on the hood to prevent him coliding with it. After this moment, both men being chase escaped. Later--still in September, Montgomery police put out a public call for the driver of the blue car to come forward; fingerprints on the car could be used to break the case. However, and a...

    Investigators probe possible sniper link to Alabama liquor store MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Federal authorities are investigating whether a fatal shooting in Montgomery last September is linked to the sniper shootings in the Washington area, the mayor said. Mayor Bobby Bright said a caller to the sniper investigation tip line apparently claimed responsibility for both the sniper shootings and the Sept. 21 shooting outside a state liquor store. He said investigators asked for files on the shooting and evidence, including a bullet found at the scene, and local authorities complied. "We are fully cooperating, but we have no verification...
