Unlike the rest of us, DC sniper mastermind John Allen Muhammad now knows the exact date when he will die.

A Virginia judge on Wednesday set a Nov. 10 execution date for John Allen Muhammad, mastermind of the 2002 sniper attacks in the Washington, D.C., area that left 10 dead.

Prince William County Circuit Judge Mary Grace O'Brien picked a Tuesday for the execution so that courts would be open the day before in case of any last-minute legal appeals.

Jonathan Sheldon, Muhammad's attorney, said Muhammad would appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court and ask Gov. Timothy M. Kaine for clemency.

Muhammad was sentenced to death for the slaying of Dean Meyers, who was shot at a Manassas gas station during a three-week killing spree in October 2002 that left 10 dead in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

He and his teenage accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, were also suspected of shootings in several other states, including a killing in Louisiana and another in Alabama. Malvo is serving life in prison.

    Mannnnnnnn I will never forget this day, i was int the 10th or 11th grade when this sh*t started happening. Im not sure if Im all for the death penalty although they did some terroizing sh*t to the DMV because Im not the one to judge nor nor have the power to dictate when someone should die, thats God job.

    N E whoo, man i usta skip school but for them few weeks my azz was right in class lol. Mofos talking bout he in a white van, niccas was ready to shoot up any whit evan crusing down the street. They had this area in panic mood for real. And to think these mofos lived right around th corner from my house was like wow. I lived in Clinton and so did his wife where they lived in a neighborhood called Summutt Creek which was like 2 minutes from my neighborhood.

    People wouldnt go outside, people were scared to drive, they wouldnt let there kids go to school everyone was in panic mood, not to mention they didnt know who or what they were looking for and people were shot randomly not knowing where the bullet came from.

    Just said man....

    @ LovelyLady I remember this craziness too. I lived in Northern VA and he had the whole area on edge. I knew they would get his a$$ in VA thought. Not that he deserves it, but he never stood a chance on trial there.

    When I read a book I am visual about the characters. When I heard about this story and all the lives lost to a sniper, I wiped off pretend sweat on my brow and said to my kids, "It can't be black ppl". See what I get for sterotyping. It's odd that this man will be executed so quickly. I live in Ohio and ppl live on death row 20+ yrs.

  • masonmom

    yea thats what i thought, folks be on death row and basically die waiting! wit VA u never know, chez whitey loves to execute in good ol' virginia

  • ELove

    Great Point and it also goes to SHOW YOU how far they will go to GET A BLACK MAN because if I'm not mistaken... The KID was the one that actually pulled the trigger YET there was no way in HELL that they weren't going to get the DEATH PENALTY for JA-Muhammad (That's for DAMN SURE !!!)

    Hmmm, I wonder why Americans are punishable by death in some states but abortion is legal in all states. I'm pro-choice but taking a life is taking a life. I guess I'm kinda, sorta against capital punishment because so many innocent blacks in the past have been fried alive.(The Martinsville Seven) But I guess if someone killed my son or my husband or my neighbor? I just don't know but I do know that God said "Vengeance is mine" and "Thy shall not kill." But again, He's a forgiving God, unlike many of us. Peace.

    I'm sorry....but I've NEVER believe this story.....reason being: WHY HAVE WE NEVER HEARD THEM SPEAK????? To this DAY MANSON can get on TV & tell his story....Scott Peterson, Jeffery Dalmer (R.I.P) anyone else who wants to...hell even Tookie (R.I.P) got to say his say....SUSPECT!

    I beleve its illegal for any of them to get paid for the interviews...but most get on TV & have their say none the less....& I know about the "family" giving their interviews.....I believe they were PAID!
