D.C. Sniper Executed

Muhammad died by injection at 9:11 p.m. at Greensville Correctional Center in Jarratt. His attorneys asked to commute his sentence to life in prison because they said he was mentally ill.

The U.S. Supreme Court turned down Muhammad's final appeal Monday.

Muhammad was sentenced to death for killing Dean Harold Meyers at a Manassas gas station during a spree that left 10 dead across Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

Victims were gunned down while doing everyday chores like shopping or pumping gas.

    PDQ!! I think that's the fastest I've seen our gov't work! Personally, I beleive that if you have gotten the death penalty, and there's no doubt you're guilty, just walk to the right and get in the chair for your next "step". NOT waste our money paying for them to be in solitary confinement for years on end while the families of victims live knowing that the guilty party should be put to death, but there's been yet ANOTHER appeal. I wonder if the state gets more money HAVING people on death row, instead of expediting the process. All I do know is that WE pay for them to be there!!! Pumping up, fighting, and joining more gangs. Great life! It's a choice MANY appear to be making, guess it's better than working a 9-5 with benefits.

    This monster took 10 lives... the only wish I had was this.... He would have been shot then saved without pain killer, then shot again, then saved without pain killer. And this would have went on until he took 10 bullets and in so much pain. Then let him heal for about a year with no pain medication, then executed him.

    A lot of us are relieved that he is dead. But, as we fear death, many people like the sniper embrace it. We did society a favor by exterminating him. But we really aren't teaching his kind a lesson. His kind would blow them selves up in a heartbeat.

    As a transplant from the DC area just 5 yrs here now, the DC Sniper was the last straw for me living up there. I worked at a Lowe's on the Rt 1 corridor he was using to get thru No. VA. That was on the job stress! Re Sept 11th. Jet used by terrorists to crash into the Pentagon flew just over my home & rattled my windows. @ 9am was just pulling into my parking lot at work next to the runway the jet left from at Dulles and I wondered "why is that jet so low and slow"? I went into my office to find everyone frantic and was told about the Twin Towers and the missing flight. I was so panicked, I jumped into my car and drove the 30 miles back home to find my husband on the couch, stunned. He told me about the jet overhead and the windows and then he said he heard an explosion. It was the Pentagon. Anyway... it led me here and I'm glad I'm away from that whole metro area. I'm very relieved that that creature is now eliminated. It gives me a little closure. how about his accomplic
