(Newser) – In a rare interview, DC sniper Lee Boyd Malvo revealed today that he was sexually abused by the man who planned his 2002 killing spree. "For the entire period when I was almost 15 until I got arrested, I was sexually abused by John Muhammad," Malvo told Matt Lauer on Today. "I felt a sense of shame, and I just said, 'That's just something I can never tell anyone.'"

John Muhammad was executed in 2009. "The main reason I'm coming forward now is because I am more mature," Malvo says. "And now, I can handle this. In here, there's no therapy. ... In solitary confinement, in a cell by yourself, I am priest, doctor, therapist." He also revealed that there were some victims of the shooting spree who haven't been identified, and said he contacted their families on his own. Click for more from Malvo.

The stories will never end. When we have: Africa for Africans, Asia for Asians, White Countries for Everybody, what do we have overtime? We have more and more non-whites in White countries since the right of Whites to exclusive territory is denied them. We have fewer and fewer White people. When we mix more non-whites and fewer Whites in the same living space, what do we get? In time, White extinction. Its called White genocide because this does not happen by chance. It is being forced upon Whites just like a rapist does not take no for an answer. How is this not so? How is this not White genocide? Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-white.

I KNEW it. There was something odd about the age gap, the body language in some of the pictures, the domineering nature of the older man. It's unfortunate, but I think it's true. Also the mental manipulation makes sense as well. It's not an excuse though. It's the same as children who are brought up to be thieves and shop lifters, and perpetrators of petty crimes by parents who are ignorant and perhaps themselves were brought up in an unbalanced environment. He didn't have a chance to be normal after experiencing sexual abuse as a kid, then meeting John Muhammad. Being homeless as a kid and living in a shelter must've shaped him in other ways as well. People have to realize that any gay contact in the Caribbean is viewed with extreme disdain, so that might explain Malvo's reluctance to be more forthcoming about the sexual aspect of their "friendship/relationship".
