Beltway Sniper Attacks
Beltway Sniper Expresses Remorse

The Beltway snipers terrorized Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. over a three-week period in October of 2002. By the time they were captured, they had killed ten people and critically injured three more. John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, who was only 17 at the time, were convicted in the attacks. Muhammad was sentenced to death in 2003, and was killed by lethal injection in 2009. Malvo was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole. In this video, Boyd expresses remorse for his actions saying: “I mean I was a monster. If you look up the definition, I mean that’s what a monster is. I was a ghoul. I was a thief. I stole peoples’ lives.” The video also features Paul LaRuffa, a survivor of the Beltway snipers who says he has forgiven: “IF I held the same hate today that I felt in 2002 when he tried to kill me, I would have wasted or damaged – I would have let him damage the last ten years of my life. And he hasn’t.”
