  • Black Serial Killer: Why the Media Indifference?

    01/07/2016 5:01:52 AM PST · by Kaslin · 18 replies ^ | January 7, 2016 | Larry Elder
    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...

    Sudden Jihad Syndrome Monday, February 26, 2007 Sudden Jihad Syndrome Evidently this mental/emotional malady is on the rise: Sudden Jihad Syndrome It looks like the Muslim teen who opened fire on shoppers in a Salt Lake City mall is yet another case of “sudden jihad syndrome,” a condition in which normal-appearing American Muslims abruptly turn violent. Taken together, this and other cases add up to an invisible jihad inside America. But don’t tell that to the FBI. The politically correct bureau does everything it can to avoid recognizing the obvious Islamic factor in these heinous crimes. Sulejman Talovic, an...

    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...

    "Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord," or a zealous prosecutor. Montgomery County State's Attorney Douglas F. Gansler, with his youthful looks and affable ways, makes no secret of being a passionate prosecutor. Hey, who wouldn't want an "eager beaver" in their jurisdiction with a zest for convicting the bad guys? But, is the gung-ho Gansler becoming overzealous, as he seeks to prosecute the convicted Washington-area snipers, John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo? 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...

The sentence came just weeks after John Allen Muhammad, Malvo's mentor and partner in the sniper attacks, was also convicted of murder and terrorism and was sentenced to death. Malvo, 18, was 17 at the time of the crimes. The...

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...

    . . .driving home this afternoon, I heard the good news: John Muhammad, the older of the DC Snipers, was convicted on all four counts, and the jury is now going on to the penalty phase, where they will determine whether he gets executed or spends the rest of his life at taxpayer expense. But what was bothering me was THIS: EVEN AFTER he was convicted, all the newsies kept referring to him as "DC Sniper SUSPECT". . . I'd say that, now that 12 of his peers have found him guilty of one count of Capital Murder, One count...

    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...

    ASPEN HILL, Md. -- Just hours after the Beltway snipers shot out a crafts store window here, kicking off a three-week rampage, a pizza delivery man on shift next to the store told local police he saw two short-haired black males leave the scene -- laughing and "high-fiving" each other -- in a dark, older-model car, WorldNetDaily has learned. Yet the sniper task force, led by Montgomery County Police Chief Charles Moose, ignored the early eyewitness account and focused instead on a white suspect in a white vehicle, according to MCPD investigators, who are now speaking out about what they...

    In San Francisco last week there was a gathering of the great unwashed, better known as anti-war protesters. They carried signs and banners bearing anti-American and anti-Bush slogans. One of those banners proclaimed "We Support Our Troops When They Shoot Their Officers" according to the Wall Street Journals James Taranto. Sgt. Asan Akbar apparently heard the message. Shortly after midnight on Sunday, in an army camp in Kuwait he rolled hand grenades into three tents killing a captain and injuring 15 others, including a brigade commander. According to The Los Angeles Times soldiers in his unit, the 326th Engineer...

    CENTREVILLE, Va., Dec. 19 In the nearly two months since the sniper attacks in the Washington area ended with the arrests of John Muhammad and his teenage protg Lee Malvo, investigators say they have made one striking conclusion: All the evidence they have points to Mr. Malvo as the triggerman. Little if any indicates Mr. Muhammad fired a shot. Some officials who have reviewed the evidence at the sniper task force's new headquarters here in suburban Virginia say that the lack of evidence against Mr. Muhammad will complicate prosecutors' efforts to get a death sentence for him in the...
