Fort Hood jihad mass murderer gets death penalty

HasanBeard.jpg

Although Hasan constantly explained his act in terms of Islam, the lead prosecutor, following the lead of many prosecutors and judges before him, had to take the time to exonerate Islam from any responsibility for his murders. The absolute unwillingness to examine forthrightly the motives of someone like Hasan continues.

“Jury sentences Nidal Hasan to death for rampage,” by Michael Graczyk and Nomaan Merchant for the Associated Press, August 28 (thanks to Kenneth):

FORT HOOD, Texas “” 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.

The American-born Muslim, who has said he acted to protect Islamic insurgents abroad from American aggression, never denied being the gunman. In opening statements, he acknowledged to the jury that he pulled the trigger in a crowded waiting room where troops were getting final medical checkups before deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan.

The same jurors who convicted Hasan last week had just two options: either agree unanimously that Hasan should die or watch the 42-year-old get an automatic sentence of life in prison with no chance of parole.

Hasan had no visible reaction when the verdict was read, staring first at the jury forewoman and then the judge. Officials said he will be taken back to a county jail and then transported on the first available military flight to the military prison at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas. The timing on the flight wasn’t immediately clear.

Hasan could become the first American soldier executed in more than half a century. But because the military justice system requires a lengthy appeals process, years or even decades could pass before he is put to death.

The lead prosecutor assured jurors that Hasan would “never be a martyr” despite his attempt to tie the attack to religion.

“He is a criminal. He is a cold-blooded murderer,” Col. Mike Mulligan said Wednesday in his final plea for a rare military death sentence. “This is not his gift to God. This is his debt to society. This is the cost of his murderous rampage.”…

    “Rampage” suggests out-of-control anger. This was not that. This was cold, calculated murder done from the depths of a mind and heart twisted by Islam.

    Looks like appeal will find no grounds for reversal of verdict or sentence so pray God this dirt-bag gasps for his last breath soon, as the demons drag his sorry ass into eternal pay-back.

    So he has to wait a decades to see the 72 virgins. I think he is 40, say by the time they killed him he is 70, would he then be allowed to take a bucket of viagra with him? Or will Allah grant him eternal erection? anyone here can jump in. M

    Treason. Jihad. Murder.

    Those are the crimes clearly.

    The death sentence is not a surprise considering Hasan’s notable, premeditated crimes.

    He sought to be a martyr. Now he is a cripled prisoner, probably for life.

    New legislation should be put in place to deprive such traitors of citizenship.

    ‘Hasan could become the first American soldier executed in more than half a century.’

    ——–

    Islamic terrorist YES Guilty beyond all doubt YES
    No one can say he didn’t ask for it, and he is a cold-blooded murderer no doubt.
    Could the timing of this death penalty verdict open up a legal can of worms in another case?
    The American soldier in Afghanistan who killed civilians recently was convicted yet did not receive the death penalty. Should he have also received the death penalty?
    I don’t have the answer or the time to look into the details of this other case so I am posing this as a question to anyone who might be better informed than me.

    The death penalty is more likely in Texas in general so I am not surprised considering his crime that they would vote for the death penalty in a military court as well as for the other soldier I forget where his trial was held.

    So long, it’s been lousy to know ya. Enjoy Jannah with it’s rotten grapes, rancid wine, polluted rivers, lumpy couches with sharp springs sticking up in all the wrong places, and 72 well used virgins who all resemble Miss Piggy.

  6. says

    It is time to join your prophet now.

    “But I did it all for you, Allah. Hold on, Allah not so fast”
    Ok, Allah forget about the 72 virgins; let’s work this out.

    FLUSH!!!

  7. says

    Another reason why I wish Hasan had succumbed to his injuries:

    “Leila Willingham, whose brother J.D. Hunt was killed in the shooting, told the Statesman: “I do not have any closure with this verdict. I strongly oppose the death penalty and do not agree with trading hate for hate, death for death. I miss my brother. But he died valiantly and I want to honor him with love, not vengeance.”

    http://www.statesman.com/news/news/local/closing-arguments-to-begin-in-hasan-trial/nZfJG/

    I may not agree with Ms. Willingham, but I certainly respect her position. Had Hasan died, Ms. Willingham would not have to struggle with an issue that clearly troubles her conscience.

  8. says

    The most fascinating part of this is the lack of remorse this guy shows, but that’s Islamic morality. Islam and its special privileges trumps everything. By that reasoning, a non-Muslim can never oppose a Muslim, and there is no concept of Islamic aggression. This logic is based in Islam’s moral dualism which sees itself as good and everything outside itself as evil. It is precisely this dualism that also underpins racial supremacy, since a person of an inferior race has inferior rights.
    The only effective response to this immoral outlook is to defeat it, both intellectually and physically.

  9. says

    Allah has in fact promised an eternal erection to all the righteous.

    But this is no laughing matter. Allah does not exist, and Islam has destroyed this man spiritually.

    Do not pray for anyone’s swift damnation. Pray rather that he repents and lives (Ezekiel 18:23).

  10. says

    Finally something sensible.

    With all due respect to the anti-capital punishment people, I am glad that the amount of time in which law-abiding American taxpayers have to support this scumbag will be shorter than it might otherwise be.

  11. says

    I am an abolitionist and strongly oppose capital punishment, in this case there may be an exception. But he wanted martyrdom, an easy way out with a peaceful going – lying in the couch slipping into a long sleep…No, the best way of punishment – is let them go through the appeals, let it take at least 50 years, before his death sentence…And no Qur’an or visitors… Let him constantly watch Christian programmes, and only Robert Spencer books and Bible are on the reading list…

  12. says

    It seems I stand corrected. The correct sentence has been levied, for now at least. I still don’t think he will actually be put to death, but I’d gladly eat my hat if he is.

    A kuffar can dream, no? That said, Kepha said it best. Barring a commutation from Obama, he will eventually be put to death at less overall expense to the taxpayers of the country that his ideology mandated his overt act of violent, murderous jihad.

  13. says

    The Israelis tried, convicted and executed Eichmann.

    Then they burned him to ashes and scattered the ashes on the sea.

    Let Hasan’s remains, after his execution, be similarly burnt to ashes and scattered on the sea.

  14. says

    Thought this was worth sharing. Last evening I met a British citizen whose parents immigrated from Nigeria. He had a Christian name. He told me that now that Hasan was given the death penalty he thought it only fair that the policeman who shot Hassan be put on trial after all he shot him in the back the coward! He was serious as a snake!

    May your virgins have herpes Hassan!

  15. says

    The article’s author incorrectly stated that Hassan will be the first soldier slated to be executed in more than a century. Private Eddie Slovak was executed by firing squad for desertion during World War Two.

  16. says

    They should hang him or behead him(Islamic style) ASAP instead of keeping him alive by wasting years and years in appeals. It may be 10 years before he is hanged!! That is a travesty of justice!!

  17. says

    Jury sentences Nidal Hasan –
    Fifteen minutes of fame, and he’s gone.

    What the fuck? Hassan is no ordinary criminal, no ordinary murderer. How can Col. Mulligan dismiss the religious motivation (“this is not his gift to God”)?! Is Mulligan in communication with the Islamic god?

  19. says

    Nidal Hasan has to be the dumbest moron since forever.

    What a fool turning his gun on his US comrades. He should have travelled to Syria and turned his gun on some Syrian Christians. He’d have got a ticker tape parade in Manhatten instead of a death sentence in Fort Hood.

    There’s Dumb, Dumber and Mr Nidal Hasan

  20. says

    I know this sounds like a joke, but I’ll bet advertising that jihad murderers get put to death covered in bacon grease would really put a crimp in the shaheed recruitment numbers.

    I mean, I think even Osama bin Laden might have thought twice about his career path if he had to weigh the threat that his mortal remains would be cremated by first being dipped in batter and then extra-crispy-deep-fried in pork fat.

  21. says

    My local radio report blamed it on Al-Qaeda support. Predictable really, when the lie that “Islam is peaceful” goes all the way to the President of The United States.

  22. says

    What can be done to a muslims corpse that allegedly prevents them from entering paradise?

    Is it enough for the corpse to be handled by an infidel or a woman or must it be buried in a pig skin, something like that. Please let me know, pure academic interest only.

  23. says

    Unsuprising that Hasan got the death penalty.

    Surprisingly, there is an automatic appeals process, which could drag on for years.

    Either way, I hope he rots before a needle is slipped into his arm.

  24. says

    We can have our cake and eat it too. Hasan has a death sentence. But UCMJ rules will have this sentence in appeal for many years. He will rot in a jail cell. As a paraplegic he has a neurogenic bladder which means an in dwelling catheter with is painful and subject to infections, there is pneumonia, kidney failure, infections from decubitis, all of which will become an increasing problem as the years drag on. He will be constant pain his life will be a living hell. The only thing he has to look forward death either his body will kill him or a technician hitting a button, and a footnote in the back pages of whatever there is for newspapers in to 10-20 years.

  25. says

    Such an evil man as the Muslim/jihadist Hasan may be described in the Bible. For example, in the NKJV it informs the readers about those who are “brutal, despisers of good, traitors…” Second Timothy 3:3,4. Likewise the same Bible verse in the KJV describs those who are “fierce, despisers of those that are good traitors..” Hasan is a heinous, murderous and traitorous fiend. That’s the kind of person that Islam produced at Fort Hood. Furthermore,Jesus did teach “by their fruits ye shall know them.”KJV or as the NIV puts it “by their fruits you will recognize them.”

  26. says

    It may be “years” but there is only appeal. When it’s done, it’s done. He’s either free, or making little rocks out of big rocks, or taking a dirt nap.

    Because the Army wants this to go away, I believe the appeal process will take a relatively short time from receipt to decision.

  27. says

    Forget about Viagra and the like. Give him nothing but pork every day and he’ll be prepared for his 72 virgins. For him there’s no need to keep kosher.

    I can only wonder why the judge exonerates the religion of peace(TM). Yeah, I forgot Nidal is a misunderstander of Islam like 1.3 billion others.

  28. says

    Under the UCMJ, he gets one automatic appeal whether he wants it or not. It’s been a while since I worked a death penalty case so I don’t know now what the turnaround time is on killing him.

  29. says

    That’s why Robert Spencer calls it Islamic Supremacism. Islam is nothing more than a caste system where Muslims are at the top and non-Muslims and apostates are at the bottom, subdued… if not killed.

  30. says

    Ashley, with complete respect and sympathy for Ms. Willingham, and all she’s been through…

    I’m not sure I see how she should be struggling with this? She’s had no control over any of these events–the crime or the punishment. Hasan did the deed and justice (finally) prevailed. If she spoke-up for her beliefs during the sentencing testimony, then she did her best. I hope she’ll come to acceptance of all this and find as much peace as she can.

    I believe the Commander-in-Chief has to sign-off on execution warrant. Think THIS C-in-C will do that? Me neither…

  31. says

    “Leila Willingham, whose brother J.D. Hunt was killed in the shooting, told the Statesman: “I do not have any closure with this verdict. I strongly oppose the death penalty and do not agree with trading hate for hate, death for death. I miss my brother. But he died valiantly and I want to honor him with love, not vengeance.”

    ——————

    She may honor her brother however she may like, including with love. However, it is the role of the state or in this case its institutions (i.e. the military) to deliver simple justice which in this case is the death penalty.

    Wishing for the state to honor the victims with love is just an example of wishy-washy pc though this time wrapped in the cloak perhaps of feel-good religious virtue.

    She may pray for Hassan in Church or attend candlelight vigils outside death row or whatever she wishes… but the state at least is on the path to doing its job in delivering already delayed justice. Justice can now only be perverted through further delays or unjustified appeals.

  32. says

    BTW, DDA: That exact treatment was administered to the remains of the 12 hanged Nuremburg defendants. It is no less appropriate for this cretin…

  33. says

    Oh, I agree with you George!

    I only wish Hasan had died while in the commission of his jihad obligation.

    It would have spared many of reliving unspeakable pain.

    For four long years.

  34. says

    “Does anyone know if religious motive was discussed during Warren Jeffs trial?”

    I’m no lawyer, FA, not by a long shot, but…

    As a rule, motive is not allowed to be brought into evidence in criminal trials, and that is because motive is not an element of the crime. This was all under the auspices of the UMCJ, which carries very much the same rules of evidence.

    The reason for this, FA, is best seen by drawing an analogy:

    I am a thief. I decide that I’m going to rob a grocery store, in order to get money for my drug addiction. In the course of that robbery, I kill the grocer, who is a Korean man.

    When asked by my defense attorney in privileged consultations, “Why did you choose THAT store – the one next door had no security on duty, and was a jewelry store?”

    I respond by saying, “I chose that store because the dude who ran the store was Asian. I hate Asians. The dude who runs the jewelry store is a Jew. I got nothing against Jews.”

    So you see, people have all sorts of bizarre motives for committing crimes – Hassan’s was, as we know – religion. But we can’t allow religion to be a mitigating factor or an element of a crime, for obvious reasons. Everyone would simply claim, “God made me do it. Have mercy on me.”

    As for Jeffs? I did a little reading, and I see why you would be interested – as a sort of study in contrasts. I wasn’t able to find anything regarding his motives, except it seems fairly straightforward that his religious worldview allowed the marriage of underage girls to much older men, which he approved of, as did his father. Curiously, his first conviction in Arizona was overturned by a state judge on grounds of insufficient jury instructions.

    It was Texas that got him. He’s in jail there now, and is apparently in ill health; he has penned a book, purporting to contain messages from God that say he should be released.

  35. says

    Thanks Philip, obviously I’m far from a lawyer too! The comparison is quite fascinating to me. I’m in Phoenix so naturally we here all about Warren Jeffs. I use to eat breakfast every morning where Noor Almaleki was run down by her father, such a shame so many here still don’t know her story(I tell anyone who will listen) Also if you would like to verify I am not a troll almost all of the anti-jihad pages on facebook know me. Im [FA] from Allah Sucks.

  36. says

    This would be the proper payback for his islamocriminal acts, but in order to confound his sick and twisted notions of being a martyr, a very special form of execution should be applied:

    Death by Pork.

  37. says

    Mike,

    Over a hundred soldiers / service-people were executed in–and several after–WWII. The last one I can find is listed as:

    John A. Bennett 8 February 1955 (convicted) 13 April 1961 (hanged) Rape, premeditated attempted murder

    That’s still a long time!

    Well, I freely admit I was wrong. Especially after all the dhimmi shenanigans at this trial, I *never* thought Hasan would get the death penalty. Glad to have been proven wrong.

    Mike, the article is not incorrect. It reads:

    That’s *half* a century, or fifty years. As George notes, the last military execution was in 1961.

    You’re welcome. I believe you that you’re not a troll, and I apologize for last night. If it’s any excuse, my arm was really hurting, so I was in an ultra-foul mood. Again…my apologies.

    Yeah, the Jeffs thing is really interesting. It got me thinking about all of those Muslims who come to our country with multiple wives, and we never hear a word about it – but a Fundamentalist Latter Day Saint who engages in polygamy is run through the ringer!

    Phoenix, huh? I’m just up the road from you in Sedona for a few more days until it’s off to Asia again…anyway, it’s quite beautiful here in the apple orchards, right up next to the red rocks. Glorious!

    Jihadski

  41. says

    No problem, I have a firm belief that we must all unite and educate as many as possible. The sheer societal pressure alone would destroy Islam. Enjoy Sedona! Too bad most of the blackberries in Oak Creek have been picked. We used to go up every year just to pick them and escape the busy metropolis and inferno. Hope they got rid of all the stupid round abouts already!

  42. says

    If he is executed tomorrow, Muslims will label him a shaheed.

    If it takes 15 years to carry out the execution, Muslims will still label him a shaheed.

  43. says

    “Hope they got rid of all the stupid round abouts already!”

    Nope. Still there, but mercifully, they’re beveled, so idiots like me can run into them with the Elantra and get away with it!

    Do not pray for anyone’s swift damnation. Pray rather that he repents and lives (Ezekiel 18:23).

    ————-
    That is a pretty serious misquote/mistranslation of Ezekial. The prophet (a real one) is not commanding man in the name of God, rather the prophet is quoting God reflecting upon Himself.

    Rather Ezekial says:
    Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? says the Lord GOD; and not rather that he should return from his ways, and live?

  46. says

    Flying pig of mecca! Damn, why couldn’t I have come up with a moniker like that?? It’s too late here to be laughing this hard!

  47. says

    But it comes to exactly the same thing. I did not mean to suggest my first sentence was part of the reference; but the second sentence reflects Ezekiel’s sentiment rather accurately. God is not commanding anyone to pray in this instance, but if he makes his known, we can still pray according to God’s mind.

    No amount of repentance will save Hasan’s earthly life now. He is going to be killed, whether he repents or not. But repentance could still save him eternally.

    It is not at all appropriate for us to take pleasure in the death of this wicked man and gloat over the fact that he will go to Hell (or be reincarnated as a slug or rot in the earth or whatever else various JWers think will happen to him). Rather than venting hatred, we should hope that he repents and lives.

  48. says

    We’re obviously talking fiction here.

    It’s all a ploy, remember the thousands of young Iranian males trained to obediently walk into Iraqi minefields with a cheap plastic talisman on a chain around their necks.

    That was their key to paradise after the inevitable explosion.

    And judging by how they handle everything else a shahid will enter the 72 virgin flophouse no matter what.

    There’ll be some hadith somewhere with the get out clause. Whether pig fat enbalmed or even with his penis reduced to a charred stump he’ll get his virgins.

  49. says

    “Rather than venting hatred…”

    Personally, I agree that in the context of our disposition to Mohammedans, hatred
    is a distraction. I mean, if ravenously rabid wolves were attacking my farm house and family therein, it would be strange and foolish to “hate” those wolves. The normal reaction would be simply to figure out the most rational ways to prevent the wolves from harming my family.

    “…we should hope that he repents and lives.”

    Hope away. Just don’t get in the way of what our society has to do to protect its citizens and infrastructure from Mohammedans who, it is reasonable to assume, are not going to repent.

    “Pray rather that he repents and lives”

    That’s why, when it comes to protecting our men, women and children from Mohammedans, it is salutary to maintain a Separation of Prayer and State. Starry-eyed Christians are free to pray until they are blue in the face, as long as they do not obstruct what their society has to do to protect itself (and to protect “in it but not of it” Christians).

  50. says

    I agree… this religious version of “pray and change” is not too far removed from Obama’s “hope and change”.

    The US tried this with releasing gitmo terrorists and Israel tries this every time they are forced to release some pali terrorists… but somehow so many of them seem to go back to imitating their “prophet”…

    I for one am not going to rely on the power of prayer to protect me from unreformed Muslim terrorists… God helps those who help themselves… in this case helping ourselves means giving terrorists all the death they seek.

    You know, I’ve heard this a lot, Kenneth.

    But as a college student in my first couple of years, I worked as an attendant for the handicapped through Berkeley’s Center for Independent Living. I worked with people in just the same sort of physical condition as Hasan”many in much worse conditions.

    But here’s the difference”all the people I worked with wound up in their conditions through no fault of their own, either through disease or accident.

    Several of these people were students at UC Berkeley. I had a colleague who worked for Mark O’Brien, who served as the inspiration for last year’s Oscar-nominated film “The Sessions”. I attended a friend’s graduation from the English department, and found O’Brien was graduating that year, too. He was wheeled onto the stage in his iron lung.

    For my last job as an attendant”before I moved on to art editing jobs, something more in my field”I worked for Earl McKeever, a quadraplegic man who was nonetheless co-director at the Center for Independent Living.

    All these people experienced pain and limitations, but they were far from useless.

    The reason Nidal Malik Hasan is worse than useless is not because he is a paraplegic, but because he decided to use his position to murder his fellow soldiers in cold blood in the name of his demonic “god” Allah.
