Death Penalty In Sniper Shooting


Recommended Posts

Some quotes from the defense:

" “I’ve represented guys that you look them in the eye and see evil. I’ve spent a lot of time with John Allen Muhammad and that’s not him.”
Source provided above.

From the Prosecution:

"“I see nothing but pure evil,”
source above.

The judge has ordered that Muhammad be executed on October 14th, 2004. The appeals process has already begun.

Rather than throwing the man in jail and letting it rest at that the tax payer and the court system will expend millions of dollars and many hours trying to get this man executed or not. A complete waste of resources I say with no impact on crime rates to boot.

Of course terrorism had to come into play in this case. I want to know if you believe Muhammad should have been charged under the new anti-terrorism laws in the States. I say no.

He should be prosecuted under the anti-terrorism laws, because what he did was terrorism.

Just because he's not foreign and doesn't speak with an accent (that I know of) doesn't mean he can't be a terrorist. What he did had no purpose other than to cause terror. I think he said as much shortly after his arrest.
