Last week, Malvo was charged with two jail violations after deputies discovered a letter he wrote to another inmate that contained a veiled threat toward a sheriff's deputy. "That 'House Negro,' " Malvo wrote, " . . . Someone should ensure that boy is fatally injured."
Court papers filed recently describe Malvo as "rather boastful" in admitting to killing a number of the Beltway sniper victims. It was not Malvo who was the sniper's little aide, but apparently just the opposite in many cases. Malvo described Muhammad as his "spotter and helper." He calmly told authorities that "both were equals and either could call a particular shot on or off."
Further undermining the image of Malvo as a clueless young puppet, The Washington Post reported this week that Malvo laughed as he described shooting FBI agent Linda Franklin in the head at a northern Virginia Home Depot. He "smiled and chortled" as he recounted another shooting involving a young boy victim. "His demeanor was calm and relaxed," according to prosecutors. "He never expressed or exhibited any fearfulness or nervousness."
Cold-blooded killers and blood-thirsty warriors come in all sizes -- including pint and junior. Here is what the blind advocates for the "Boys" of Gitmo and "Boy" Malvo fail to grasp at their peril: There is no age limit on evil.
