Fort Hood Gunman Gets Death

August 28, 2013  | 

Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist who killed 13 people in 2009 in a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, was sentenced to death Wednesday by a military jury after just two hours of deliberation.

Hasan, who offered little defense, sat motionless as the jury president read the verdict. Hasan has said he acted to protect Islamic insurgents abroad from American aggression and never denied being the gunman. In opening statements, he acknowledged to the jury that he pulled the trigger in a crowded waiting room where troops were getting final medical checkups before deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Hasan had one final chance Wednesday to give a closing argument before his case went to the jury, but he declined—continuing an absent defense that he has used since his trial began three weeks ago. The panel unanimously ruled that Hasan must forfeit all pay and allowances and be dismissed from the service.

Hassan WANTS to die, because in his mind, he will be a Martyr for his cause. So what can be done to prevent this? How bout PRETENDING to kill him , and put him in a dark hole the rest of his life, with NO human contact, and bread and water.

Or make sure everything that is used for the execution, is covered with, filled with, touched by or contains pigs blood.

Chuck hits on a good point. But why not defile him with pig blood/urine now, and every day until his execution. Under Islamic belief, being defiled he cannot go to Paradise and get the promised 72 virgin girls. (Or boys if he's gay). He will suffer knowing that he won't go to Paradise. More important, if we publicize this we will deter future Islamic Jihad terrorists. Because they will know that whatever they do, we will defile them and deprive them of Paradise and the promised reward of virgins.

For his last meal give him a Ham sandwich and am glass of cheap whisky. These guys won't know how to handle a real woman let alone 72 virgins.

This cowardly Islamic terrorist is more than likely to die of old age than be executed!

"Really" has a great idea, but lets fill that dark hole with pigs blood!

When they execute him, instead of a hood, put a pair of used woman's panties on his head, while reading the letters out of Penthouse magazine, and have the firing squad of naked women do the deed.

Why do they still address him as "Major"? The conviction should reduce him to E-1 (Private), forfeit all pay and allowances, and a dishonorable discharge

We may be all retired many years before he is put down.
