Hasan Sentenced to Death in Fort Hood Shooting
A jury of U.S. Army officers sentenced Nidal Hasan to death for a mass shooting at Fort Hood in 2009 that ranks among the most worst soldier-on-soldier killings in the history of the nation’s military.
The sentence brings to a close a court martial in which the 42-year-old Army major offered essentially no defense to the Nov. 5, 2009, attack, in which 13 people were killed and 31 others injured. Maj. Hasan was convicted Friday of multiple counts of premeditated murder and attempted murder in connection with the shooting.

Sorry but the State NEVER has the right to put anyone to death.
(I can understand the death penalty for someone who is too dangerous to incarcerate. Think Devil’s Island somewhere.)
Strategically, it’s something that can never be undone.
Tactically, it’s just not pro-life.
Plus, as an adder, isn’t this just what he wants?
Sorry, but I disagree.
