ARRATT, Va. (AP) - John Allen Muhammad, the mastermind of the sniper attacks that terrorized the nation's capital region for three weeks in October 2002, was executed Tuesday. Muhammad died by injection at 9:11 p.m. at Greensville Correctional Center in Jarratt, prison spokesman Larry Traylor said.

He said Muhammad had no final statement and that Traylor didn't hear him utter any words during the execution.

Muhammad was executed for killing Dean Harold Meyers, who was shot in the head at a Manassas gas station during a spree that left 10 dead across Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

I dont think I'd shed a tear if his partner was right along side him.

And it damn sure should have been public.

I watched the news on it with the boyftriend, and some neighbors. The killer had a nice way to die. Apparantly he just gets to fall asleep.. as if he were prepping to have his wisdom teeth pulled.

One of his lawyers said that since he was "mentally ill", he shouldve been put in a cement box for the rest of his life. Seriously, I think the death penalty is way more humane than putting a creature in a "cement box" for life. I would much rather just execute them.

I think he should have been executed by the electric chair or firing squad.

I agree.. But the new kinder, gentler world in which we live doesn't want shitheads mistreated in the slightest way.. I'll bet they even cleaned the IV injection site with iodine before the needle and catheter were inserted...

I think they should be put to death in the way they murdered. He should have faced a firing squad. A concrete box is too good for him, he should be in a pine box at best.

Firing squad is an honorable soldiers death.

Hanging is fine.

For ten years. :cool:

Don't kill him. Let this piece of crap live another day...

Cruel and unusual punishment?

I would give him what he gave his victims....

I heard Boortz this morning celebrating the upcoming execution, and see a few here. I support the death penalty, and think this guy deserved it for the heinousness of the crime, and agree that a firing squad would be very appropriate, but I still ain't celebrating anyone's death.

Both are painless in that the subject loses consciousness in an instant. Same with hanging.

You want painful and terrifying? Gas chamber is the way to go.

I can respect you for that.

But I have no problem toasting to his death or making light of it.

Getting a bit ghoulish in here.

The fucker is dead, and I'm glad of it, because of what he did. I'm hoping the same happens to the Fort Hood terrorist scumbag, too, preferably quicker.

But let's not get carried away with ideas of making them suffer. That kind of shit belongs back in the middle ages. Making them dead, quickly, should be good enough.

Torturing someone to death, whatever the circumstances, is not something we should aspire to, unless we're looking to become more like them.

Enjoy hell Mo.

The intent of the death penalty is justice, not revenge, and not deterrence, either. If the perp is bonkers enough, he will be inured to either. He won't give a shit. He will go out and do it, and do it worse.

The only reason for executing someone is that they have done something horrible, something that they are proud of having done, and that they would do again, given the slightest chance. The only reason for executing such a person is that society has legally agreed that they need to be gone, and the risks associated with their incarceration and possible escape or release are too large to be manageable.

If you really want to have millions of people jacking off to televised images of someone getting executed, then go for it, televise it, because I am sure you will bust the current Neilson ratings the first time you do so. There will be big problems arising from taking this step, though.

Televising it will not stop future perps doing the same... in fact, televising it just once will almost guarantee that some will want go out and do the same, in the hope of going out in the same burst of twisted, televised glory.

You have to admit, at the least, that any serious failed jihadi like Hasan would crave a public execution.

Well, if we did it on pay per view we could pay all the expenses.:D

That's a good point. :D

Seriously though, witnessing something like this can corrupt the person witnessing it. And even if not, the images are not anything anyone would want to hold on to.
