Several federal sources told the Seattle Times that Muhammad and Malvo may have been motivated by anti-American sentiments in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks. Both were known to speak sympathetically about the men who hijacked jetliners over Washington, New York and Pennsylvania, the sources said.

USA needs to have a close look at the gun culture
its dreadful the amount of innocent people who get shot in the states every year
could very well be that the 2 are NOT the snipers.. the media is just speculating away...
remember last night the police released a statement saying that they are looking for 2 people whom they are very interested in speaking to but are not thought to be the snipers..
there were other people picked up earlier in the week as well... could it be that these people become MORE special and more attention is given just due to the names ?
I am just going to wait and see how this develops... not going to jump to conclusions...
concur completely with the whole "right to bear arms" bs that is in this country...
firstly charlton heston should be tried for murder 1.. and then once he's kaput... they shall pry the gun "from my dead hands" as he likes to put it... jokes aside... guns need to be taken off the streets... instead of kicking up the defence budget by ELEVEN percent... perhaps lets get rid of arms on the streets...
the death penalty for such things should be really cruel and weird. they should cut off all finders at first. brake some legs and stuff. turture them on nation tv actually. that might be a warning to others who want to do the same.
Not saying they do or do not have the right party/parties yet but for what it is worth:
My 2 cents - when and if they catch the party/parties responsible for these sniper shootings they should not be sentenced to death - but rather life in prison and let the current inmates take care of them!
I think they just might suffer far more wondering when and how and who will "get even"!
I'm thinking the sniper catching thing is a decoy, or the police will find something that will make them believe that they have the right people. Then after some time, the sniping spree will start again
oh so it's them after all? cool. btw anyone seen a news that in moscow(if i recall it correctly) there are 700 people held hostage. and as i heard from people couple of them have been shoot already. what the **** is going on in the world?
