Military can seek death penalty for accused Fort Hood shooter

The investigating officer in the case of the accused Fort Hood shooter has recommended that the military pursue the death penalty against Maj. Nidal Hasan, according to his lawyer.

Col. James Pohl, who acted as a judging during the just completed Article 32 hearing, also recommended a general court martial for Hasan, who faces 13 counts of pre-meditated murder and 32 counts of attempted pre-meditated murder in the shootings at Fort Hood on November 5, 2009.

      I would say, let the families of the victims make the decision.

      The last thing we need to hand the extremists is another martyr to promote their twisted cause. Make him rot in jail with the lowest of the low and he'll be forgotten.

      since we can't work him, then just physically abuse him. After a year of that, then send him to death. Video tape it and send it to families, post it on the internet for the terrorists to see. They would.

    I say let him sit on death row for the rest of his paralyzed life. Executing him would make him a martyr in the extremist world. Letting him rot wouldn't give him any glory.

      As long as there is no chance of him getting out of prison at any time like the Scots did with the Libyan.

    Even if they give this Nidal Hasan the death penalty,there is nothng they can do to hurt him considering the medical condition that he's in. Like christime said above,not executing him is the worst they can do to him.

    I don't want my tax dollars paying for his medical care, feeding him, clothing him for the rest of his life - how about put him on a deserted island and let him fend for himself - yeah, I know he's paralyzed.....

    Give him Islamic justice....stone him to death. He still has feeling from the waist up.

    Let's not forget, this guy was a Major in the United States Army

    The same Gov't that is screening airline passengers

    There is no fool proof way to keep people safe. Its all a show to make people feel safe

    Grabbing peoples genitals and buttocks won't do it either

    Let Mr. Slave shove a pineapple up his ass, then let Paris Hilton use him as she sees fit. If I had been in the building that day this piece of sh1t wouldn't have a head today.

    He should rather be thrown in a pit of boars such as in Hannibal. Sounds easy enough, and something he would fear on top. Remember, the Islam fear the Swine.

    I agree with Chris. If they defile us in life, then it is not our obligation to purify their death. Make them live with pigs, make them sleep with pigs, and then bury them with pigs.
