FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) ? A military court sentenced Maj. Nidal Hasan to death on Wednesday for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, giving the Army psychiatrist what he believed would be a path to martyrdom in the attack on unarmed fellow soldiers.

This guy gets sentenced to death. US soldier who massacred Afghanistan civilians gets tried in a US court and sentenced to life.

Lovely.

Imo the US soldier should have been tried in an Afghani court and been sentenced to death too.

I'm sure he'd appreciate it. He said he wanted to become a martyr so you'd just be doing him a favour. Good job!

What may be a martyr to some is just a dead, gone and soon forgotten person to others.  Besides the proceedings have to be reviewed by an Army general and he/she will make the "binding decision" on whether to accept the verdict and sentence, that may take a few months, then Nidal  can appeal (even if Nidal doesn't want any appeals, some are a matter of procedure) and that can take years. It has been more than 50 years since the military has executed one of their own.

 

Also the Afghan incident involving Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales and the murder of the 16 Afghan civilians, he received life because he pleaded guilty and avoided the death penalty.

There's also a few other soldiers on death row so chances are he'll stick around for a while yet at taxpayers expense.

He'd only be a martyr in his sick little mind. No one else would even care if he was gone, I suspect.
