    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday declined to block the execution of John A. Muhammad, the sniper who terrorized the Washington area seven years ago. The step cleared the way for Mr. Muhammad to be put to death on Tuesday unless Gov. Tim Kaine of Virginia intervenes.

    interesting read and very revealing about how different states handle the death penalty.

    I always have mixed feelings about the death penalty. It somehow seems wrong for the state to kill in cold blood and yet, this killer had no moment of compassion for those he targeted. He put a bullet into the back of a third grader and turned a teen-ager into a murderer. I can't seem to find it in me to pity him.

    I've been conflicted about the death penalty for years now. In this case though, seems to be a preview of Hasan. Actually a better case, since he did serve, while calling PTSD. On the other hand, it seems other factors trump the 'stress,' in both cases. If the death penalty is ever warranted, in both cases seems appropriate.

    Regardless of states not bowing the SCOTUS meetings.
