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.

Good so we can quit paying him now right?

Can we seize his assets and distribute them to the victim’s family?

Good thing this was about workplace safety rather than Islamic Jihad, mutiny, insurrection, treason, mass murder and crimes against humanity.

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.

Now - “IF” he does not get the death penalty I believe the military justice system should be “compassionate and merciful” to Hassan as Mo would want.

Place him in the same cell with “Chelsey” Bradley Manning and perhaps they could have 30 wonderful years of companionship together. Hassan being paralyzed, will need someone to keep his A$$ clean and I believe “Chelsey” would be well qualified to handle the duties.
Shux - maybe he would change his name to Aisha instead of Chelsey IF Bradley was so honored..

This trial was not about the "workplace violence" designation. It was about guilty or not guilty of murder.

My understanding is there is some kind of civil suit to try to get the administration to change the workplace violence label they put on this.

Hang em high.

Hanging, firing squad or electrocution, none of this oh so gentle sleepy time. He needs to feel some pain in return for the pain he caused. Last meal should be pork sausage followed by pork greased rope hanging, or pork greased bullet firing squad or pork greased electrode electrocution, and it should be tomorrow. There is no doubt about his guilt or actions so screw the wasted time and money in appeals.

Whens the last time the military actually used the death penalty? I think it's like 50 years. I would put him in Leavenworth with unsupervised general population. Let the bytch get water boarded and raped in the shower.

Hasan knew a guilty verdict was coming regardless, so he opted for a declaration of martyrdom. He will not be killed but will be incarcerated in a “monastic” cell while receiving the adoration and praise of a billion Muslims.

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.

He was found unanimously in a trial where he repeatedly admitted terrorism/jihad.

Gonna be hard for Holder to get out of this in the public eye. But he will try.

Executed in 15 years. Anyone hear ABC radio news last few days, mis-pronouncing his name as “Hossin” (emphasis on the first syllable), completely took away the “mid east” sound of it.

Yes. Part of the sentence will be a reduction in rank to E-1 (if they do that to officers) and forfeiture of all pay.

Holder and/or POTUS will find some technicality to vacate the verdict, and take the trial away from the Military, and retry in civilian court.

“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.”

I disagree. There is no reason for us to share in his—or any other unrepentant murderer’s—delusions of paradise (when they will most certainly go into eternal punishment). Execution in a case like this is fitting, period.

Conviction was never an issue for me. The penalty phase will be where it gets interesting.

This guy seems to be a true believer jihadi, so his non-defense makes sense if he really wants the death penalty. If he gets it, I would not be surprised if he does a McVeigh and drops any appeal.
