Sniper Muhammad Guilty

This just in, DC sniper John Muhammad was convicted today of capital murder, murder in an act of terrorism, use of a firearm in commission of a felony, and conspiracy. The jury deliberated about 6.5 hours on this one and found him guilty on all 4 of the charges. The 2 murder specifications can carry the death penalty. I'm hoping the jury will do the right thing and bring that home to Mr. Muhammad. He deserves nothing less and the lethal injection method used here in Virginia is a hell of a lot kinder than the fear he put us through last year. If justice were truly to be served, he'd be stood up in front of a firing squad. Better yet, he'd be released into an area about a mile square surrounded by sniper blinds. Sometime during the next few weeks, he'd get capped. Making him live like that for a while would be justice for what he did.

Good riddance.
