The man only otherwise known as the D.C. Sniper, John Allen Muhammad, recently wrote a letter to his prosecutors, the very men that had him convicted in 2002 for. He was sentenced to death, and he has spent his life on death row ever since, working on appeals with his lawyers. In the letter he wrote to prosecutors recently, he asked them to help him cancel the appeal process. He said that he had been trying to get it to end for quite some time without success. He is also calling for an end to appealing the death sentence. His lawyers suggest he has lost his ablity to make sound decisions for himself and should be ruled incompetent.
Amazing that in a bad economy and a shortage of prison space our legal system might stop a man sentenced to death to ask for the inevitable. He is not awaitiing DNA testing. He is guilty, and he does not want to appeal or put off the death penalty. Why not stop putting off the inevitable?
