SEATTLE - The U.S. Army said Wednesday it will seek the death penalty against the soldier accused of killing 16 Afghan villagers in a predawn rampage in March.

The attack drew such angry protests that the U.S. temporarily halted combat operations in Afghanistan.

Think Staff Sgt Bales did 4 back to back tours and had part of his foot shot off and a concussion. Need to refresh myself on the details.
IF he gets the death penalty it will be the first soldier in many years...absolutely heart wrenching case.

Is the Army seeking the death penalty for that act of work place violence that took place on U.S. soil?

And what about the gay soldier (Pvt. Manning) who caused irreparable harm to our national security via Wikileaks? Has he received a medal from 0bama yet?

Yes, the Army is seeking death against Hassan for the Ft Hood massacre. Bales snuck off post and killed nine little children in cold blood. There’s no excuse.

They’ll seek the death penalty for Bales, but they won’t even force Hassan to shave his beard.

Bales did 4 back to back tours..they were around 12 month tours. He was told he would NOT have to go on the last tour but they changed their mind at the last minute and sent him. He had part of his foot blown off and I believe a brain injury BEFORE they sent him over again.
His atty wept during the first interview...I cannot help it but I am just sick over this.
There was a freeper that knew him personally..I hope he sees this thread.

I never implied there was an excuse, and not being a psychologist or psychiatrist I would not even attempt to try, my question was simply as to wether the same standard was being applied to Obama’s muslim brother. Try not to read extra into the words.

I pray that the military realizes how disposable they are to the regime. Not the General Staff. They have been subverted. But the boots on the ground guys...

I’m happy to see him executed, but there are thousands and thousands of other who should be executed sooner.

Well, maybe on his last day on earth, his beard will be found hindering the execution & will have to be shaven clean before he meets the Virginians. Also that his mouth be taped so as not to interfere with any final proclamations to the process? A good example for watching Moslems?

There is more to this story. Where are his boss’? There is no way an E-3 could have done this himself. Something stinks with this story....

Treason and "workplace violence" are different. Obama is on their side, so those criminals will not get what they deserve. As for the soldier who murdered children, even if he was not mentally stable (almost certainly true), he should never again walk free.

Sorry. I was concerned your statement would be misunderstood. If coming from the left it could be about all the soldiers out there that served. I took it to mean all those on death row, but you never be sure how it could be taken by others here.

When hassan was active duty, he managed to shave himself regularly.
He was allowed to stand his ground on the beard thing.
Put him in a confrontation with the judge on this case.
The judge was removed because of an apparent bias toward the muslim major.
A new judge has been appointed to review this case.

He has friends in high places I guess.

But the military has not ordered the death of Hanson the Muslim jihadist, who murdered innocent soldiers at Fort Hood. They hide his war time crime as a “workplace accident” as they hid the knowledge that he was a jihadist and permitted him to counsel troubled soldiers...to kill themselves. This is the treason and insanity of political correctness.

The current leadership loves the enemy and hates the US. They are a treasonous danger to US soldiers and people.
