Posted on 03/21/2013 4:26:37 AM PDT by Zakeet
An Army judge in Texas just made a somewhat unconventional ruling in the trial of Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan: She refused to let him plead guilty. Why? It would enable him to avoid execution. Apparently, the Army would not be satisfied to see this alleged mass murderer simply go to jail for a few decades. It appears the prosecution is out for blood.
The situation is a little bit dicey, when you think about it. After Hasan's lawyers made it very clear that Hasan would plead guilty in order to avoid the death penalty, Col. Tara Osborn made it very clear that that wasn't going to happen on Wednesday when she ruled out any guilty pleas. Since it's against Army rules to plead guilty to a capital offense, the defense abandoned its original plan of pleading guilty to 13 counts of premeditated murder and instead asked the court to allow Hasan to plead guilty to 13 counts of unpremeditated murder, a charge that does not carry the death penalty. On Wednesday, the judge said no way since that "would be the functional equivalent of pleading guilty to a capital offense." Ditto to pleading guilty to the 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. That would complicate a not guilty plea to the murder charges.

This nice Muzzie isn't quite ready for his 72 virgins ... probably because the nitwits in the Obama administration determined that he was the perpetrator of workplace violence and therefore didn't commit an act of Islamic terrorism!
Why is he allowed to have a beard? It would be a shame if the razor slipped.
this case should be have been completed 3 days after the shooting was done. the muzzie piece of dog excrement should have executed the same way he executed his victims. lets end this case now blow the ......’.head off.

You’re always gonna have problems lifting a body in one piece. Apparently the best thing to do is cut up a corpse into six pieces and pile it all together. And when you got your six pieces, you gotta get rid of them, because it’s no good leaving it in the deep freeze for your mum to discover, now is it? Then I hear the best thing to do is feed them to pigs. You got to starve the pigs for a few days, then the sight of a chopped-up body will look like curry to a pisshead. You gotta shave the heads of your victims, and pull the teeth out for the sake of the piggies’ digestion. You could do this afterwards, of course, but you don’t want to go sievin’ through pig shit, now do you? They will go through bone like butter. You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a body that weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes. That means that a single pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute. Hence the expression, “as greedy as a pig”.
Any votes on this sentence being used?
His victims couldn’t dodge the death penalty either.
Just. Kill. Him.
I’ll do it for N/C w/ a 230gr .45cal ACP, at my own expense.
This case has been put off way too long already.
It will be interesting to see how Obama gets this guy away from a firing squad.
And what do those who kept him in position plead?
They knew he was in contact with Al Qaeda and making death threats “cut off the heads of the infidel!” in public yet protected him for politically correct reasons.
Their support led to an act of domestic terrorism and they must be held accountable. NO RETIREMENT PENSION BENEFITS. And can Nasan’s pay be docked after he’s been found guilty as charged?
It's called justice. He deserves nothing less.
Dark Knight killer James Holmes 'is now a Muslim who prays five times a day' (20 March 2013 Daily Mail)
"...believing he was on his own personal jihad and that his victims were infidels..."
Wonder how he is spending his “pay”? Let him repay the cost of all the funerals he caused and if there is anything left over give it to the victims familes.
A simpler solution would have been let Texas try him for the civilian death. Only problem with that is the system, dictated by the federal government, requires years of delays before the execution.
But remember, if the federal government wants the job done quickly they can. Example: Mcveigh
IF media were capable of reporting the truth.....
Obama didn’t even give Momar Gaddafi the benefit of a trial before ushering his Islamist buddies into power in Libya. Sec. of State Hillary Clinton boasted “WE came, WE saw, HE DIED!!!”
Yep, and Holder would not answer the question if Obozo could call for a drone strike within the US to kill a US Citizen on our soil. At first he said he had the authority.
He and his supporters clearly think they are not bound by the rule of Law and the political establishment in Washington DC seem to agree.
Remember, he “Won”.
I want to know why KSM is still alive
He should have been found guilty and executed 6 months after he was caught and the last bit of info was taken from him.
He’s been dodging it for years now.
Maybe, eventually, he will be hit in the head by a falling meteorite.
Maybe, eventually, he will drop dead of a heart attack.
Currently, he is still managing to wiggle through legalistics and keep breathing.
Nor me, either.
