Victims of the D.C. Snipers

DC Sniper Victims Memorial at Brookside Gardens (VIEW LARGE) by nosauten.


The Memorial at Brookside Gardens to the 11 murdered by “Juvenile Lifer” Lee Boyd Malvo and his adult accomplice John Allen Muhammed in the Washington DC area in 2002. Muhammed was executed in Virginia in 2009.

This a horrible reminder that if offender advocates were to have their way and abolish the life sentence for all teens, even those most violent – the truly only “worst of the worst”, it would include Lee Boyd Malvo.

Every one of these families would have to spend every few years for the rest of their lives, and into the lives of their children and grandchildren, in some cases, going through the trauma of the parole process. Having to travel, take off work, draw up petitions, talk to the media, reopen wounds, stay constantly focused on the man who killed their family members. These families deserve the peace of a life without parole sentence, and the nation deserves to have Malvo stay behind bars serving the life without parole sentence he earned by his vicious crimes.
