FORT HOOD U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan will be executed for the 2009 shooting rampage on post that left 13 people dead and more than 30 wounded.
The jury panel of 13 U.S. Army officers delivered the verdict on post moments before 2 p.m. Wednesday. They deliberated for less than three hours.
Last Friday, the same panel unanimously found Hasan guilty of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood.
This sentencing verdict ends the court martial after 17 days. In it, Hasan, who defended himself, never revealed a motive, did not present a defense and refused to cross-examine any of his victims.
Hasan will immediately lose his rank of major and he will stop getting paid in two weeks.
The Army will soon transfer him to the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. to begin serving his sentence.
But an execution is not imminent. Hasan automatically gets an appeal and it has been more than 50 years since the military executed anyone.
More to come.
I love the timing, just as Obama gives his phony speech on MLK.
Hasan must be very happy with this glorious news. He will get to have his 72 virgins. I only wish I was able to be there to cheer him on...
I hope his last meal is a Taylor Pork Roll, shoved down his throat.
If the rank is stripped “immediately” why does the headline continue to say “Major”?
Hopefully he gets death by pig.
Naw - shoot him from the cannon's mouth.
A real president and CiC would do it himself.
I say wheel the good Major Hasan onto a C130 and drop him off over Damascus, Syria.
So he can be with “his people” lol
Let this martyr for Allah be sent away with pork dipped bullets.
One jihadi down, about eleventy million to go...
Or give him the Rachel Corrie treatment.
cut his head off and call it ‘severance pay’/
Actually, he probably won't. I believe that there are 5 ahead of him at Ft. Leavenworth and they will all die of old age before an execution is ordered. The same will apply to Hasan. The Army will build him a special cell at the USDB that can accommodate a paralyzed inmate and he will be a potted plant for the rest of his days.
It’s too bad, they should have taken him from the
court room right to the gibet, right there on base.
In this instance there is no need for an appeal.
I actually want this supposed pResident to do this if that is the requirement and that is what he intends to do.
I want his military to know that he does not value their collective lives one bit. I want them to know that he chose a f@cking Muslim over them.
Sentenced to death for workplace violence? That’s an outrage! This is the equivalent of a paper cut or a stapler accident.
Approves. Appeal denied. Ready, aim...
The sooner the better!
Smear him with bacon grease and send him on to hell
