    Here’s something that people on the ground in Chicago are all freaked out about (but of course the media won’t report on it accurately and the police seem to be pretending that it’s not happening): is there a serial killer shooting at cars on the highway into Chicago similar to DC’s Beltway Sniper from years ago? Whenever these shootings are reported on, the media seems to go out of its way to just claim this is random gang violence. But…if that was true then wouldn’t this have always been happening through the years? I find it hard to believe the...

    A Louisiana man shot by Lee Boyd Malvo before the criminal spree that terrorized the Washington, D.C., area in 2002 has received a letter of apology from the convicted sniper. John C. Gaeta, 58, of Albany, said Thursday that he's glad Malvo wrote him but remains skeptical about Malvo's intentions. "I'm glad he wrote the letter," Gaeta said. "I do wonder, though, if he's truly sorry or if this is a part of him trying to get his sentence reduced. He knows that he should express remorse, so I question whether it is genuine and from the heart." Gaeta was...

    John Allen Muhammad is scheduled to be executed tomorrow for the Beltway-area sniper spree that left 10 innocent people dead in 2002. Several family members of the victims will attend. At the time of the murderous rampage that stretched over three, horror-filled weeks... where Muhammad and his young partner in crime, Lee Malvo, wreaked bloody havoc. I covered two main aspects of the story that were underplayed by the MSM–Lee Malvo’s illegal alien catch-and-release story and Nation of Islam convert Muhammad and Malvo’s Muslim hate-mongering.

Williams, A Virginia judge has set November 10 as the execution date for John Allen Mohammed, the Beltway sniper who masterminded terror attacks in the Washington, D.C. area that left 10 dead in the fall of October 2002.

    Convicted sniper John Allen Muhammad was regularly whipped with hose pipes and electrical cords and beaten with hammers and sticks by family members during a brutal childhood, according to lawyers trying to save Muhammad from the death penalty. The lawyers argued in a federal court petition filed this week that the jurors who sent Muhammad to death row for the 2002 sniper spree were improperly barred from hearing most of the evidence of the harsh life Muhammad faced as a child. Muhammad and his teenage accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo , were convicted in 2003 of a random killing spree that...

    Washington-area sniper John Allen Muhammad does not deserve a new trial in Maryland, a state appeals court ruled Monday in a sharply worded unanimous decision that compared Muhammad to Jack the Ripper. The state Court of Special Appeals said Muhammad terrorized the Washington region in a rampage similar to that of the notorious Victorian serial killer who murdered at least five East London prostitutes in 1888. But the three-judge panel noted one distinction: "Jack the Ripper has never yet been brought to justice. The Beltway snipers have been." Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo were convicted last year on six counts...

    One of the Washington D.C. snipers confessed to killing a man on a Southeast Side golf course four years ago, Tucson police said Friday. The confession from Lee Boyd Malvo on Thursday brings a sense of closure to Jerry Taylor's family, who for many years have believed that Malvo and fellow sniper John Allen Muhammad were behind the slaying on March 19, 2002. Taylor's daughter, Cheryll Witz, said she was ready to forgive Malvo for his crime. "I really do need to forgive him and I do believe he was brainwashed" by Muhammad, Witz said Friday.

The Washington Post, citing a source familiar with the case, said in a story in Friday's editions the shootings occurred before the three-week spree in October 2002 in which 13 people were shot, 10 fatally, in the Washington area.

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

"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.

Maryland law didn't allow for anyone under 18 to be executed before the court's ruling. In Louisiana, the death penalty had been allowed for juveniles.

    RICHMOND, VA. - John Allen Muhammad's lawyers argued before the state Supreme Court on Tuesday that the convicted sniper cannot be sentenced to death under a Virginia law because he did not pull the trigger in the October 2002 killing spree. Muhammad was sentenced to die after being convicted of two counts of capital murder last year in the shooting of Dean Harold Meyers near Manassas. Prosecutors had argued Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo formed a sniper team and were thus equally culpable — even though Malvo said he pulled the trigger. Defense lawyer Peter Greenspun contended that Virginia law...

    The Psychology of Junior Sniper Lee Malvo by Michael J. Hurd The defense psychiatrist for the D.C. sniper, Lee Malvo, claims that Malvo was unable to distinguish right from wrong. In other words, he didn't know that it was wrong to shoot innocent people at gas stations and department stores. Why not? Not because he was psychotic or schizophrenic, meaning completely out of touch with reality (in which case he would not have executed these shootings so competently). Instead, we're supposed to believe that he was so "pathologically loyal" to the elder sniper John Muhammad that he couldn't help but...

    From the moment John Allen Muhammad and Lee Malvo were arrested in the Beltway-area sniper case last fall, the media and Muslim activists wanted us to believe that the serial killings had absolutely nothing to do with Islamic terrorism. CNN downplayed Muhammad's religious conversion -- calling him by his old name, John Allen Williams, when his identity was first revealed. Malvo was cast as a clueless dupe with no true convictions. Nihad Awad of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) argued: "There is no indication that this case is related to Islam or Muslims." Chicago Sun-Times columnist Richard Roeper railed...

  • The D.C. Snipers: Islamofascists After All

    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...

    Terrorism in Virginia. John Allen Muhammed and Lee Boyd Malvo, the DC sniper murderers, have been described in many ways by people who wish to de-emphasize the pair's motives. It is about time they are recognized for what they are, Islamic terrorists. Malvo's lawyers are trying to make Malvo out as a confused young kid who was led astray by an older man (who may have also been his lover), and that he was not responsible for his crimes. To convince Malvo's jury of his legal incompetence, his lawyers have entered Malvo's sketches and writings into the record. Apparently, they...

    <p>CHESAPEAKE - When Linda Franklin was shot and killed last fall, Lee Boyd Malvo suffered from a "dissociative disorder," a "substantial impairment" that qualifies as a mental disease, a forensic psychologist told jurors during the teen's capital-murder trial yesterday.</p> <p>Dewey G. Cornell, a University of Virginia psychology professor who has testified at dozens of criminal trials, said Malvo "is, in my experience, a very unusual, rare case."</p>
  • Psychologist: Muhammed Threatened Malvo (Sniper case)

    CHESAPEAKE, Va. - Lee Boyd Malvo believed John Allen Muhammad would kill him if he ever deviated from the plan in last year's sniper spree, a psychologist testified Monday at Malvo's murder trial. Muhammad's two rules for the pair's mission were "whatever it takes" and "no turning back," said Dewey Cornell, a University of Virginia psychologist who interviewed Malvo more than 20 times after his arrest. Muhammad often told Malvo that Malvo should shoot and kill Muhammad if he ever strayed from the mission, Cornell said. Malvo assumed the same would happen to him if he deviated, according to the...

     Picture of the Day - LIX (see all)The Religion of Snipers While many news outlets are carrying the D.C. area sniper trial, they are desperately lacking in any real analysis of what these crimes really mean. Is this terrorism? Did religion -- namely Islam -- play a role in the killings? Is this connected to Osama's al Qaeda, even if only via ideology? And, is any of this related to the new shooting spree in Ohio? Yes, yes, yes and yes... and I have evidence to back my claims. What follows are official court documents from the Malvo case in...

    <p>CHESAPEAKE, Va. -- Jurors in the Lee Boyd Malvo trial yesterday began getting a fuller picture from the teen-ager's attorneys about how they believe John Allen Muhammad lured the youth under his control and put him on a regimented lifestyle that included doing 50 push-ups as punishment for misbehavior.</p> <p>The testimony was part of the defense's groundwork for its push to convince the jury that Malvo was desperate for adult attention and was so brainwashed by Muhammad that it should find him not guilty because of insanity. A jury convicted Muhammad last month, and said he should be sentenced to death for the sniper killings that terrorized several states last fall.</p>
