  • Recruit shooting suspect sends letter to TV

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. A Tennessee man charged with killing one soldier and wounding another outside a Little Rock recruiting center has sent a letter to a Little Rock television station.

    Abdulhakim Muhammad writes in the letter to KATV that it's in response to an earlier letter to the judge in his case. He says "others" are trying to scare him by asking for the death penalty.

    He writes to "Bring it on. We love death more than you love life." He adds that those who are ready to die can't be killed.

    The letter to Judge Herbert Wright asked that he be allowed to plead guilty.

    Muhammad's attorney says prosecutors would have to waive the death penalty for Wright to consider the request. Prosecuting attorney Larry Jegley has said he will not do that.

    I am surprised that a guilty plea can be denied. What will the judge say say instead of "How do you plead?" Courts are so into format, can that denial make the whole thing unconstitutional somehow? We are all under a death sentence. Life without parole might cause more misery.
