Willful silence before the unwilled silence.

No last words from John Allen Muhammad.

'See you in hell' mighta worked.

Poster child for the death penalty, and not letting NYC ACLU types, willfully obstructionist judges, law school academics, liberal politicians and others drag death penalty cases out 20-30 years.

When there is no doubt they did the deed (as opposed to reasonable doubt), swift and certain justice is a necessity to create a dterrent effect.

Cedarford said...

misstated - meant to say no reasonable doubt and even beyond that...like a court determining aside from all the due process BS and legal i's and t's done just perfect...that there is no doubt whatsoever the person to be eradicated from society did the deed...

He was a stoic to the end. His lack of any life inside his glassy dark eyes is a trait that the destroyers of the loving people around them always seem to show. A darkness over his life will now follow him into an eternty of outer darkness. That reminds me that the religion of Mohammed put into practice becomes a cult of misery and death to its captives.

He was too busy thinking about those 72 virgins.

Salamandyr said...

He had nothing to say that was worth hearing.

".. This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper."

and thus for Mr. Muhammed.

Why on earth do we care?

Realize that John Allen Muhammad was one of the so-called Black Muslims -- a member of the Nation of Islam led by Louis Farrakhan.

G Joubert said...

Well, he clearly had something rolling around inside his head, even if out of petulance or whatever he wasn't going to say it. Something angry and hate-filled. That, probably along with a few Qur'anic verses he had glommed onto along the way to derive as much cover and sanctity as he could, considering the effed-up piece of meat he was.

Darcy said...

Ahhh...silence.

Fred4Pres said...

He was one strange individual. What motivated him? Hell if I know. Was it Islam, that Man Boy Love relationship of his, or being upset over a divorce? We really don't know.

I am not happy he is dead, but I really don't feel the least bit bad either. You can debate the merits of the death penalty, but if it was created for anyone, it is for the John Mohammads of the world.

Roman said...

The only thing I would be interested in hearing is his last breath!

Was it Islam

The difference between Islam and the Nation of Islam is almost as great as the difference between Science and Christian Science. J.A. Muhammad was one of Farrakhan's men.

I'm sure the CSM could have field day with that.
Nice try at parsing the genusIslam but you might rephrase the comparisons.

I AM happy he is dead. I get the same feeling from it that I do from hearing that someone was cured of cancer. We all just got a tumor removed.

bagoh20 said...

Better would be: the difference between "progressives" and "progress".

MadisonMan said...

Silence is for 11 o'clock today -- remind me to re-read The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club -- not for murderers.

AJ Lynch said...

FLS:

I did not know he was a Farakhan follower. Interesting to hear that. Thanks

Bissage said...

The death of John Allen Mohammed was something he richly deserved, for choices he made, by a means and process both painless and humane.

It is entirely possible that none of us will be so lucky.

The Lord works in mysterious ways.

traditionalguy said...

FLS...That is good information. The Farrakhan version may be worse since it hasn't had centuries to moderate its harder teachings. I have always heard that the new converts joining a culture are usually more zealous in acting out its teachings than those born and raised within it. For example, immigrants to Israel are said to be initially more zealous about the country than the Sabras are.

David said...

The known victims of murder at the hand of John Allen Muhammad are also silent:

Alex Napper
James Martin
James Buchanan
Premkumar Walekar
Sarah Ramos
Lori Ann-Lewis Rivera
Pascal Charlot
Dean Harold Meyers
Kenneth Bridges
Linda Franklin
Carnell Johnson

R.I.P.

edutcher said...

Farrakhan (and Elijah Mohammed)'s philosophy is all hate stuff, always was. Needless to say you don't see the Left looking at them the way they do those awful teabaggers running around demanding their rights and honest government.

In any case, Muhammad (or however he spelled it) did his talking in 2002. Except for the grief of the victims' family members, he really didn't have much to say even then

Randy said...

As Davis Spade once said.

Capt. Schmoe said...

Although his crimes did not meet any of the recognized definitions of terrorism, Muhammad was very effective in terrorizing a large area during those weeks. His statement was made then, with a rifle and some ammunition.

His silence now, is most welcome.

Paul said...

I'd prefer to think it's more like the difference between rattlesnake and cobra venom.

vbspurs said...

Ooh, a Dorothy L Sayers reference! ...Sayers and Christie, my two dearest pals on flights during my childhood.

The Bellona Club deals with an old officer at a gentleman's club who no one noticed was dead because he never said much to begin with.

Cheers,
Victoria

Please do not embrace such an oxymoron as not fitting the definition of terrorism even though he terrorized people. The media and Obama may be pushing that template of not knowing what "terrorism" is, but that doesn't mean the rest of us should.

Muhammed knowingly and purposely terrorized the entire D.C. region, including when he shot and killed a woman about two miles from where I am sitting.

Purposely inflicting terror by such violent means is "terrorism."

Moreover, he was expressly found guilty of, and consequently executed for, "capital murder in the commission of an act of terrorism." Va. Code §§ 18.2-31(13) and 18.2-46.4.
See, Muhammad v. Commonwealth, 611 S.E.2d 537 (2005)

Does anyone think that America is a more civilized country because Manson has lived to old age or that America is a more brutish place because Muhammad has been executed?

Alex said...

The biggest injustice of no afterlife is that his victims have it no better in death then their killer.

Alex said...

FLS - stop tripping all over yourself. A Muzzies a muzzie a muzzie... It's not as if you make any difference between Christian McVeigh and other Christians, so right back at ya fuckhead.

Alex said...

America becomes a more brutish place if we abolish the death penalty. That's brutalizing the victims' family 2x.

rcocean said...

The lack of liberal support and OUTRAGE over his death is interesting.

What was it about this guy that Liberals didn't like? Wasn't he poor and black?

Ralph L said...

I suspected it was a Muslim from the beginning, mostly because it was the DC area. They never found ties to extremist groups or Imams (other than NofI)?

I wasn't on the internet then, but it seems like Hasan has gotten much more public scrutiny, much of it mocking the MSM for their willful blindness.
