… Nidal Hasan & the Death Penalty …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 3rd,2013

.. Well , he has gotten his just desserts . This pile of sub – human scum has received the penalty that he deserved , the death penalty . The verdict was unanimous on all 13 counts for which he could have received it . Which is poetic justice .

.. Instead of going to heaven , this bastard is stripped of his military rank . He now has no military rank at all . With an officer , such as Hasan , it is different . He will be imprisoned even though he has been now dismissed from the military service . With an enlisted man (yes , a man ) such as Bradley Manning , you are still in the service . Hasan is not .

.. He will not go to heaven . He will rot in hell . Which is exactly what he deserved . No heavenly virtue . No 72 virgins . None of that . None of that at all .

… Is Nidal Hasan Gone nuts ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 13th,2013

.. it is said that a person who represents himself in court has a terrorist killer for a client, or something like that :

The military judge presiding over the court-martial of Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan ruled that he can continue to represent himself, denying a bid from his legal advisors to take over his defense amid concerns the former Army psychologist is trying to sink his own case to get the death penalty.

The lawyers assisting Hasan, called “standby attorneys,” claim he is trying to get the death penalty and have said it would be “morally repugnant” to help him achieve such a sentence. Hasan admitted in his opening statement that he was the shooter, appearing to be trying to get himself convicted.

..  If Hasan really wants the death penalty, he ought to be able to simply cop a plea . Unfortunately or not , it is a death penalty case . The Uniform Code for Military Justice [the U.C.M.J.] does not allow that in a capital case . Otherwise , the UCMJ would be happy to oblige him. No, what he wants is to put on some fancy legal theater and then get put to death. Which is more important? Probably the theater.

.. In order to play his own part in this , Hasan must be seen — in his eyes and in the eyes of his al-Qaeda comrades — to be the master, the conductor of his own trial. He will put on a glorious show, culminating in a glorious death for Allah. This has little to do with suicide-by-courtroom, and everything to do with an agent of radical Islam bending a Western institution to his will. Again.

… Now , What will this Scumbag do for a Defense ? Plead Insanity ?

Accused Fort Hood Gunman Cannot Use Defending Taliban Defense

..  Army psychiatrist Major Nidal Hasan cannot argue at trial that he was defending the Afghan Taliban when he opened fire in a 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, that killed 13 people, a military judge ruled on Friday. ” There was no evidence that there was any immediate threat to others from your fellow soldiers,” Colonel Tara Osborn said, denying Hasan ‘ s request to use the defense as he represents himself at his upcoming trial on 13 counts of first-degree murder.

.. Hasan, a 42-year-old U.S.-born Muslim, is accused of killing 13 people and wounding 32 others in an attack on soldiers at a readiness facility where many of those shot were preparing to deploy to Iraq or Afghanistan.

.. ” I object , ” Hasan said when the judge ruled that he could not use his chosen defense. He also asked Osborn to delay the court martial by three months to allow him to prepare a new defense strategy and add to the witness lists. Osborn did not rule on that request .

.. With this guy , he is some piece of work . People deserve justice , not stalling . Strip him of his pro – se rights [to defend himself , with himself as a lawyer] , and reinstate his standby counsel . Get the damn court – martial under way . His victims deserve a timely decision on the merits . Hasan does not .

..  Hasan deserves an adequate , but not the 4 – corners strategy that he has been using . Move things along , and let the appeals court referree while the court – martial proceeds .
