In a year of bad court decisions, finally we get a good one:
FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Maj. Nidal Hasan has been convicted of premeditated murder for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood. That means he’s now eligible for the death penalty.
Military jurors found the Army psychiatrist guilty on Friday for the attack that killed 13 people and injured more than 30 others at the Texas military base.
The trial now enters a penalty phase, where prosecutors will ask jurors to sentence Hasan to death.
Finally a verdict that makes sense; after dealing with horrible setbacks via the Supreme Court of the United States, the Supreme Court of New Mexico, and the Court that gave Bradley Manning only 35 years instead of life, we finally get to see a murderer punished for the crimes he committed. There is no doubt that Major Hasan deserves the death penalty; it is the only punishment that makes sense for a man who opened fire on a military base and killed 13 people. The Justice system did something right in the conviction of Nidal Hasan, lets just hope they continue to do the right thing and give him the capital punishment that he has coming to him.
