Time's up...

John Allen Muhammad, 48, is set to die by injection in a Virginia prison Nov. 10, seven years after he and his teenage accomplice terrorized the area in and around the nation's capital for three weeks.



"I feel like it's going to be the last chapter of this book and I want to see what his expression on his face is. And I want to see if he says anything," the 38-year-old Rivera said. "I want to see his face and see how he likes that — confronting his death."

Glad he's finally being put to death. Although, to parrot what steelerfan said, why would they bother trying him in MD after he got the death penalty in VA? What's the point?

You guys are talking about a human being, a sick one yes, but human still the same. Don't you think public execution and extreme torture is taking it a little far? There are very good reasons why the Constitution doesn't allow those type of activities...

I'm hoping I just missed some sarcasm here...

Ask the families of the victims if it's "too far". You reap what the freak you sow. He'd have gone right on killing men, women, and children had he not been caught, so frankly I could give two s***s about his "humanity", cuz' there isn't any.

Strap his a** to a pole and let the families of his victims use him for target practice.

You just don't get it. Killing people is wrong, so wrong in fact, that the only way we can make sure people know how wrong it is is by killing people.

Thank you. I'm glad not everyone on the interweb is completely freaking insane... Im just going to chalk this thread up to people talking big online, and maybe, just maybe, I can keep my hope in humanity. Maybe.

You keep using the word "humanity" like that sack of crap has a shred of it in him. The only difference between him and a rabid animal is that the animal doesn't know any better. You don't try to reason with evil...you destroy it, or it destroys you.

That's certainly one way to look at it. There's several others, of course, as well. I don't think anybody here is using the word humanity to describe what he himself possessed, more so what we, as a society, should show any and everybody, without discrimination. Some people call this "soft" and say that ideologies like this are why "America is wearing a skirt now", and want an eye for an eye. Me, I'm not really for killing people regardless of how heinous the crime is. My view may change if it was, say, one of my family members who was murdered in cold blood, but since it's not and I can't realistically put myself in that situation and determine how I'd feel, I'll stick with what I know for now. There's a laundry list of punishments that I'd find acceptable for crimes, even the most brutal ones, but death just doesn't make the list, ever. I'm not huge on vengeance, which is essentially what I view forced death as. I don't think it's justice, nor does it undo the acts that were committed, or realistically make them hurt any less. People throw the "Well now the families know he can never do it again" stuff around, but again, there's a laundry list of alternatives that ensure that, without having to murder him. I dunno. I understand why people are all for it, I suppose, I just don't see myself ever getting anywhere near that side of this argument. For me, there's just no way around it.
