Our sniper: guilty on all 4 counts

No surprise given the overwelming evidence. There is a photo in the Washington Post of one of the victim's daughter hugging the prosecuter after the verdict was read. Can't understand this domestic terrorism, and don't need the basturd breathing any more Virginia air.

when I was young you didnt hear of murders at all. I think when someone assults or murders someone when caught give them the same punishment that thier victim recieved I said put both in front of a firing them what it was like I bet there would be less murdering..

How about an old fashioned hanging, or would that be politically incorrect?

but if it were then that truck driver that spotted them in the rest stop may have introduced them to Mr. Kenworth... just my 2 cents worth. M.D.

How about trying 'em for the murders of the rest of the victims? Would cost a bundle, but I would like to see some closure for the families and friends of the others.

May be a help, but like you say it would cost; the taxpayer. We are the folks that are footing this bill, right? Still, I don't believe all is out on this coward. He is said to have killed a woman in Washington state. Shot her in the face with a borrowed handgun. It is supposed to come out in the sentencing stage.

Here the state could set up a special lottery to buy a chance to pull the trigger and our schools would be funded into next century.

Did he get life or the death penalty? They ought to shoot him with his own rifle.

Mike D.    Posted 11-18-2003 at 06:26:14       [Reply]  [No Email]
They are in the penalty stage now. My guess is that they will give him that lethal shot in the arm.

I am just a skeptic, I guess, I hope he gets death.
However, I would not be surprised if the liberal atmoshpere gives him life instead. Then we can continue to support him and allow him to spread his religion in the prison system. Then a rash of his converts can get released out in our midst to do more hate crimes.

Hi Lenore-
If he does not get the death penalty then I don't give him 2 years to live in prison. He'll be fodder to someone on the inside. Those types seem bent on grabbing headlines while eliminating
societys biggest offenders. Like that priest that was sent up for child molestation. How long did he last on the inside? Or that Dolmer guy? He didn't do to well inside either.
Then, the shooter has to stand before the maker on judgement day to boot. Still, I don't care to share Virginia air with the fool.
I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that he'll get the death penalty. I believe he will.

afraid you're right    Posted 11-18-2003 at 07:44:23       [Reply]  [No Email]
I agree, if anybody deserves the death penalty it is these two, but I am also very skeptical that he'll get the death penalty.

The news said that 2 of the jurors were visibly shaken and actually crying when the verdict was read. If they were that shaken up with just stating the obvious, then how are they going to make "the hard call" and give him what he deserves?? Further, if you look at today's CNN poll, 12% of the respondants say he should *not* be executed...or approximately 1-2 people out of 12 on a jury.

But if I'm right and he doesn't get the death penalty, then he should be released. No government protection or anything, just tattoo a big "M" on his forehead for "murderer," let him go and let him live in fear for *his* life!

How far outside the courthouse doors do you think he'd get? Two steps maybe? I hope you are wrong on the penalty.

This business happened close to home for both of us. I have been watching the trial and I believe that the jury will do the right thing and give him death. I don't have that much confidence that they will ice the boy though. He'll play to the jury that he was controlled. I sure hope I'm wrong on this.

I live about 10 miles from the woman that was shot in front of Michaels craft store in Spostylvania. My daughter had been in there the day before. The man that was murdered at an Esso gas station was about 7 miles from me. I looked over my shoulder when pumping gas during that time. Did you notice that scum Mohammed had a team of 6 or 7 attorneys working for him? Attorneys make the laws, and then the legal system, which are the lawyers, get to benefit from it and rob it blind. What a waste of taxpayers money. He should have been hung within a week. Too bad he didn't shoot a few lawyers while he was on the loose.

whew-    Posted 11-18-2003 at 18:25:28       [Reply]  [No Email]
I know what you mean about close to home. I'll leave it at that. I got to say, though, that the case presented to the jury left no doubt about how low of a life form he is. Good on them, I say. Now, it is time for a Virginia jury to show Texas juries that we are of a same mind. Take an innocent life & die. Simple as that in my book.
Sad for the families, and no answer why it happened. Let's just put the dog down and move on. Maybe other dogs won't stray... Mike D.

seems to be different    Posted 11-18-2003 at 08:39:17       [Reply]  [No Email]
in the press for the young one...they seem to feel some empathy for him, so he may get off altogether. Not sure, though, have to see/hear what those tapes sound like where he brags about killing folks. His own words may take him out!

One thing that will stand out- 17 is old enough to tell right from wrong. I hope he hangs, but we'll have to see how good the defense is. One thing is for sure: the prosecution has done their homework, and will be hellbent on promoting the death penalty. Pull the trigger, get caught, die. Don't take an innocent life and look for sympathy... crying about how bad you had it in the west indies. The jury will see through that if they are awake.
