A federal appeals court in Virginia has affirmed the capital murder conviction and death sentence of D.C.-area sniper mastermind John Allen Muhammad.
A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued its unanimous ruling Friday. The panel rejected several claims by Muhammad, including that he never should have been allowed to act as his own lawyer for part of his 2003 trial because he was too mentally impaired.
The only injustice going on here is that this slimewad is still breathing. He’s had his trial, he’s had his appeal. It’s been 7 years since he did his killing and over a year since he pulled his off-again, on-again switcheroo of whether he wanted his trial to continue. There’s been no reversible errors and I believe society has been more than accommodating of his attempts. It’s done. Now it needs to be finished.
