Major Nidal Hasan was sentenced to death for the 2009 shootings at Fort Hood.

I think justice has been served. I also know he was looking for martyrdom after he decided to represent himself.

When this cowardly shooting happened in 2009 many, including me, were disturbed how the
Military handled this.

Instead of outrage about what happened to our brave men and women who were shot like rabid dogs on some county road while Hasan was shouting “God is great" in Arabic, the brass seems to walk on egg shells about all this.

I then realized what a politically correct entity the Military had become or was becoming.

This same pattern has been demonstrated by the government with other issues the last few years.

While the American people howl with disgust about concerns we're told, "nothing to see here, move on."

The biggest injustice is that this Fort Hood shooting was never called what it really was.

Terrorism.

The Justice Department called it “workplace violence.”

This wasn't a case of a man going into his ex-wife's beauty shop and shooting up the place.

God knows that’s bad enough

But, this was another attack on our country on our soil, just like September 11th at an Army base and the folks in the administration want to say “workplace violence?”

Justice was done today as far as I am concerned.

The injustice of not calling this terrorism is an injustice.

That’s my point of view, what's yours?

Although he received the death penalty, it hasn't been carried out in the military since 1961. Rolling around a federal prison in a wheel chair for the rest of his life sounds like a good sentence because it's what he doesn't want. He wants to be executed.
I do think he should have to pay restitution to his victims, even if he has to stamp license plates till he's 80 to do it!

After the Nuremberg trials they hung a bunch of top Nazis. Ever wondered what they did with the bodies? Well they had them cremated in the Auschwitz concentration camp crematorium (same ones the Nazis used to murder so many millions of Jews) and then they dumped the ashes in the sewers so there would be no martyr burial site.

I think ex-Major Nidal Hasan deserves the same thing.
