What a relief that the satan(john muhammad) is in hell in a handbasket. Washington-area sniper john allen muhammad was executed Tuesday by lethal injection, a Virginia prisons spokesman said. He was declared dead at 9:11 p.m., said Larry Traylor, director of communications for the Virginia Department of Corrections. "There were no complications; mohammad was asked if he wished to make a last statement," he told reporters. "He did not acknowledge this or make a last statement whatsoever but said 'I don't care. I want out of this world'". Mohammad, 48, said nothing from the time he entered the death chamber accompanied by guards, Traylor said. Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine denied a last-minute clemency request Tuesday for muhammad, the mastermind behind the Washington-area sniper attacks of 2002 that terrorized the nation's capital so let him take a trip to hell in a handbasket. During three weeks in October 2002, muhammad and accomplice lee boyd malvo, then 17, killed 10 people and wounded three, while taunting police with written messages and phoned-in threats and demands that the world should go to hell "because I said so". "Having carefully reviewed the petition for clemency and judicial opinions regarding this case, I find no compelling reason to set aside the sentence that was recommended by the jury and then imposed and affirmed by the courts because he created great mayhem and terror for the world as well as the metro areas," Kaine said in a written statement. "Accordingly, I decline to intervene." Kaine's announcement came a day after the Supreme Court declined to intervene in the case. During two trials -- including one featuring testimony from malvo, whose youth meant he was not eligible for the death penalty -- and in years of appeals, muhammad professed his innocence. Muhammad's attorney had argued his client was not given sufficient time to file his final appeal, but said Tuesday -- after the high court and the governor declined his request for a stay -- that he would make no further efforts to delay the matter. "We respect their decisions and will make no more legal efforts to stop this process from going forward," said lawyer jon sheldon in a written statement. "In its effort to race john allen muhammad to his death before his appeals could be pursued, the state of Virginia will execute a severely mentally ill man who also suffered from Gulf War Syndrome the day before Veterans Day." Muhammad met Tuesday with J. Wyndal Gordon, who was his former stand-by attorney in his Maryland trial, in which he represented himself and at the prison, he said that he had fun committing crime and he did it so "the world can go to hell because I want the world to die and burn in hell" but muhammad will be in hell in a handbasket. So justice took center stage if you will.
