Verdict: Maj. Nidal Hasan sentenced to death for Fort Hood shooting rampage
WFAA TV (Dallas) ^ | 8/28/13 | JASON WHITELY

Posted on 08/28/2013 12:02:25 PM PDT by ken in texas

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.

About time some common sense prevails.

Now if only the few other mass murderers who survived their atrocities would get the same.

I always thought it would be tough to watch a death sentence carried out.

Not this time.

I heard this morning that since this was military related the President would have to sign off on the execution.. and that Obama was refusing to sign off on it.

But will they keep issuing his pay once he’s dead? Nothing else seems to stop him from getting it?

I’ll start the death pool with a guess of .....

NEVER.

It took 4 years just to get to trial. And since Hasan is a muzzie - he is a protected class and will spin his appeals and postpone his execution until he naturally passes away.

Does el Presidente have to sign Hasan’s death warrant. like Governors do in the various states? If so, I think h
Hasan has at least until January 20, 2017 to get himself a presidential pardon.

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...

U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan will be executed for the 2009 shooting rampage

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.

Oh, but this is NOT military related, or else the victims (and their families) would have earned their purple hearts.

So, nope, no military here.

By the way, why did they need a off-base civilian police officer to be the first one to attack him successfully?

There is a guy on the military death row that was convicted in 1988. Hassan is at least a decade or two away from execution so Obama won't have anything to do with it.
