Fort Hood murderer 'could face death penalty' as U.S. Army chiefs wrangle over his fate
Daily Mail ^ | Feb. 24, 2011 | Staff

Posted on 02/24/2011 2:40:49 PM PST by La Enchiladita

The U.S. Army psychiatrist who slaughtered 13 people on a Texas military base could face the death penalty as officials wrangle over his fate, it has emerged.

Major Nadal Hasan was said to have cried out 'Allahu akbar!' before he opened fire on troops and civilians, killing 13 and injuring 32 at Fort Hood in 2009. His fate now lies in the hands of brigade commander Col. Morgan Lamb, who is due to release a report in which he is expected to recommend a court martial.

Hasan, who was paralyzed from the waist down after being shot by police the day of the rampage, now awaits the final decision on his future in a prison cell.

Last autumn another colonel made a recommendation that he should be court-martialled and face the death penalty. But army officials would not say if they will seek that punishment if Hasan goes to trial.

If I had been there - I would have carried out the death penalty. He never would have gone to the hospital.

How about he is tortured until he reveals everyone

Where is the accountability?

Hassan will not face the death penalty. Obama will not allow this.

Anybody taking bets on whether he becomes worm food?

The political correctness that allowed him to commit his terrorist attack will spare him from the ending he deserves.

He'll pardon him on his last day. Then, when the sun comes up next morning, he'll be in his new digs in Saudi or Bahrain.

You’re right. I would like to see this court martial delayed until for a few years. Whether or not O wins the next election, I could see him issuing this piece of debris a full pardon in December 2012.

If this were 40 years ago, he’d already be dead. Of course, if this were 40 years ago, there would have been armed people all over the base and he probably wouldn’t have survived the incident, much less been able to get off that many shots.

Why the cigarette? Don’t you know that smoking endangers ones health? And what about the firing squad? Do you want to expose them to secondary smoke inhalation?

That is, in the unlikely event that Obama doesn't pardon him on the way out.

My mind runs wild ...

A 2x poster of a Helen Thomas Face Shot for his Death Cell.

A last meal of Pork&Beans.

A firing squad loaded with pork-fat greased bullets,

A shroud made of pig skin.

(This would also work for those murdering Somali Pirates)

I don’t think so.
The Constitution’s Bill of Rights is surprisingly property-rights focused: over 60% of the 10 Amendments involve them. The fifth prohibits it because it would violate this portion: “nor be deprived of life, liberty, **or property, without due process of law**”

While I see what you’re getting at I believe it is more hurtful to try to circumvent the Constitution in the manner you suggest than you may realize. We have an obscene number of laws —and even more rules and regulations— which circumvent the Constitution, at *all* levels of governance. In my home state of New Mexico, for example, the State Constitution forbids laws abridging “the right of the Citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense;” furthermore it constrains Counties and Municipalities from “regulating, **in any way**, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms.”

Yet, if you go to any County or City Courthouse you’ll see a “No Weapons” sign; when you inquire into the matter you get one of two answers 1) there is *NO* state law regarding weapons in the courtroom, or [the one offered by the security-guys] 2)”It’s the judge’s decision.” And so we have a clear example of a situation where the government is exceeding its legitimate authority... sadly this is NOT uncommon; but it’s even worse where there are Statutes or Ordinances which clearly violate the Constitution which are prosecuted anyway. (Like NMSA 30-7-2.4, which for all practical purposes makes it a crime for someone living on-campus to keep or bear firearms.)

That's simple, actually accomplishing the deaths of the President, 4 or 5 Supreme Court Justices, and a couple dozen Senators & Representatives.
Those killed were peons, well, below-peons actually; the normal citizen is a peon, but they [military] were signed up to defend America, and that means that their lives are worth even less. [/governmental-thinking]

Just look at the government's [lack of] response to the Tea Parties --this may or may not be changing, as we had a pretty nice turnover last-election-- as compared to their responses to the Giffords incident. On the one hand you have a non-violent protest-group numbering in the MILLIONS, and on the other a SINGLE political malcontent who dared to strike out at one of the ruling class... and observe that Hasan killed near TWICE as many as the Giffords-guy did and the relative outcry/alarm between the two; it's so supremely messed-up that I submit to you that only something like the above hitting the politically-powerful would result in a death-penalty. {It's worth wondering how/if things for the Guantanamo-bay captives would have gone differently if the 9/11 pentagon-flight had hit one of the Houses (while in-session) instead.}
