Closure in the sniper’s execution
By Harise Poland Wright
I have been reading the debate on whether the execution of the D.C. sniper John Allen Muhammad offered closure to the victims’ families. I feel very fortunate not to have been a victim, or to have lost a relative to this terrible man’s rampage.
But we all lived in fear, like second-tier victims. Many activities had to be canceled. Some long-anticipated high school graduation ceremonies were canceled or shortened. My child was a teen then, and every gathering was affected. It was hard to go outside without ducking and running.
I felt great closure and satisfaction that the D.C. sniper was finally removed from society, including prison society. This was for everyone.
