Will Nidal Hasan receive the death sentence?

A military jury could begin considering by late Tuesday whether Maj. Nidal Hasan will be executed for the November 2009 mass murder on a Texas Army base.

Surviving victims and family members of the Fort Hood massacre testified in emotional terms Monday over their personal trauma and grief, as the sentencing phase for the convicted murderer's court-martial moved quickly toward a dramatic conclusion.

The Army Medical Corps officer was convicted Friday on all 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder in connection with the shooting rampage at a Fort Hood deployment processing center. The incident occurred about a month before Hasan was to deploy to Afghanistan.

    If there is any justice remaining in the USA, then yes, this mass murderer will be put to death.

    Hasan has made it clear that he wants the death penalty. That way, he says, he will be considered a martyr. Well, I say we should grant his wish and send him on to his 72 virgins. Hopefully they'll all be males with bigger wan kers than his.

    He needs to be put to death so we hear no more about him and his victims will not have to listen to his B.S. for years to come. I second what bobcat(iah) said about 72 virgins, still out on the wan ker part. lol
