Fort Hood gunman unanimously guilty on all charges

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -- Army Maj. Nidal Hasan was convicted Friday in the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, a shocking assault against American troops at home by one of their own who said he opened fire on fellow soldiers to protect Muslim insurgents abroad.

The Army psychiatrist acknowledged carrying out the attack in a crowded waiting room where unarmed troops were making final preparations to deploy to Afghanistan and Iraq. Thirteen people were killed and more than 30 wounded.

Because Hasan never denied his actions, the court-martial was always less about a conviction than it was about ensuring he received the death penalty. From the beginning of the case, the federal government has sought to execute Hasan, believing that any sentence short of a lethal injection would deprive the military and the families of the dead of the justice they have sought for nearly four years.

A jury of 13 high-ranking military officers reached a unanimous guilty verdict in about seven hours. Hasan had no visible reaction as the verdict was read. In the next phase of the trial, they must all agree to give Hasan the death penalty before he can be sent to the military's death row, which has just five other prisoners. If they do not agree, the 42-year-old could spend the rest of his life in prison.

Solitaire, no human contact of any sort, SuperMax, rest of his life, with a knife.
Do not allow him the questionable “grace” of dying in jihad, the only guaranteed path to that whorehouse-in-the-sky his kind calls paradise.


Agreed .

Killing this monster would be a kindness to him.

Put him in solitary confinement for the rest of his life and let his contemplate his paralyzed legs, the humiliating fact that he is powerless to control any aspect of his existence, and miserable quality of life he has created for himself.

Most importantly, killing him to provide for him an honorable, highly publicized martyrs death is obviously what he wants and is trying desperately to achieve.

We should make sure this is denied to him and instead let him face obscurity once the trial publicity dies down. It is better that we allow him to stew in his misery, and self inflicted humiliation to contemplate his powerlessness and personal degradation alone, forgotten and unheralded by the rest of the world.

Hassan will be appointed head of DHS.

Seriously, on his way out if he does, 0b0z0 will pardon the pervert Manning and commute the death sentence that Hassan MAY get.

If we plan to execute him, he will become the Islamic Mumia and a cause celeb with the American Left and in the Muslim World.

Once they actually do execute the POS he will become a highly publicized martyr

He just ain't worth the trouble.

Wheel him back to his lonely cell with minimal fanfare, lock the door, throw away the key and let him rot in Military prison under the military justice system which is much harsher than the civilian prison system.

“Unless his goal is to be found guilty.”

Bingo! Major Nidal Hasan wants to receive a death sentence so he can be a martyr for Allah. Here's what ought to be done: 1) execute him by firing squad with bullets dipped in pig blood; 2) put his body in a pine coffin with slaughtered pig parts; 3) ship him to his relatives and if they don't want him, cremate the body and scatter the ashes to the winds.

The military justice system is still tough and he has virtually none of the court appointed rights left wing judges have awarded to civilian prisoners.

He is still legally a member of the military and subject to it’s laws and rules he has just been stripped of all rights, rank and has forfeited his pay.

He is going to die in jail and every day he will wish that that is the day he dies.

A retired U.S. Army colonel told me a story that occurred when he was stationed in Berlin before the re-unification:

A Russian soldier in East Berlin was arrested for raping an East German woman. At his trial, the soldier confessed to the crime.

He was immediately marched out of the court and behind the building where he was shot in the head.

American officials were shocked at the speed and brutality of the death sentence. They wondered why there had been no appeal.

The Russians replied, "He confessed."

The Americans wondered at the brutality of the sentence.

The Russians replied, "He knew the sentence for a conviction of rape in the Russian Army is execution."

The laws regarding death sentences in the U.S. should be changed:

1. Appeal must be filed within 30 days
2. No continuances allowed on appeal
3. Sentence carried out within 24 hours if appeal is denied.

"If he’s executed, it will be in 2039 or so."

If he is executed, will he be fulfilling his Islamic mission?

Will he go to wherever they go when they kill the infidels?

Paradise and virgins, I guess.

Maybe he should just die of common old age.

He'll probably get out on a criminal exchange with the Muslim Brotherhood or such...

I don’t know - I suspect he’ll be treated the way the little darlings at Guantanamo are treated. Special Islamic treats for their holidays, special Islamic diet all the time, Islamic reading material, meetings with their mullahs...you can’t make me believe that Hassan won’t get this stuff, no matter what kind of prison he goes to. In fact, if he doesn’t get it automatically, he will petition for it and no doubt get it.

Put him to death and have done with it.

There are some cases that warrant swift justice like that. Now with news stories that travel the world at light speed and outside influences that can't keep their mouths shut we have situations like this where it took years to even have a trial.

In WWII can you imagine a Nazi sympathizer gunning down people on the base while screaming "Heil Hitler"? He would have been executed by sunset.

"Good thing this was about workplace safety..."

If its "workplace violence/workplace safety", does that mean he doesn't get paradise and the 72 virgins?

If he gets the death penalty, make it fast in coming. Do like the Oklahoma bomber did - get it over quickly and get it behind us. The Arab Street is going to be playing this for all its worth.

He's kind of like a suicide bomber. To fulfill Jihad, doesn't he have to die?

This is as good as we can expect from the media. They will never tell the public that the ‘religion of peace’ has sworn to eliminate Christians and Jews, and that this mass murder is about that.

Not a gunman.

"I think they should take him to the 'chair' each day, and at the last minute the phone rings. After getting off the phone, they tell him that a stay of execution was temporarily approved. Then they should give him a meal containing pig fat, pig in any form, but disguised.

Then, just before he goes to sleep, tell him that his food had uncooked pig in it.

Next morning, wake him up and tell him it was a joke(about the food). Later in the day, take him to the chair, and start the whole process over again. Repeat until he is so confused, he no longer remembers why he was 'ok' with dieing (martyr). Then the next day, put him in the chair, have the phone ring.

Wait for him to say "pardoned again?" and reply "no, I'm getting great rates on car insurance", and then flip the switch.

I kinda' like the way you think. He caused, and continues to cause, so much pain.

If he gets the death penalty, make it fast in coming. Do like the Oklahoma bomber did - get it over quickly and get it behind us.

The Federal government's objective in both of these incidents has been to conceal as much relevant information as possible from the American people.

Execution should take place only after an extended and complete "conversation" with proper patriotic American investigators, and the information made public.

Then this scum can be executed publicly by Lithium fusion on his precious rock in Mecca.

I agree with the many calls for the swiftly completed execution of Nidal Hasan but the harsh reality is more likely that even if he is sentenced to death, he may never be executed. First will be the 'automatic' appeals then the stalling of the execution, just as his trial was delayed for over four years. Then, I have no doubt that Obama, on his way out in January, 2017, will commute Hasan's death sentence to life in prison as a 'humanitarian gesture'. Sure, there would be lots of outrage but why would Obama care at that point? Bill Clinton pardoned Marc Rich, a big-time tax cheat and while there was a lot of criticism, Clinton remains a hero in the Democrat party. I doubt Obama would fare any worse. The sad truth is that Nidal Hasan will, unfortunately, probably outlive many of us.
