The military judge overseeing the trial of admitted Fort Hood gunman Maj. Nidal Hasan told defense attorneys Thursday that they can't drop out of the case -- even though they believe it's tantamount to helping him commit suicide.Let us be perfectly clear here. No matter how much he wants to make himself a martyr, he still deserves the death sentence to the very end, and they should not allow his deluded desires to get in the way of justice. Mainly because it's unlikely he'll get 72 virgins, and more likely he'll go to hell and appear before an even higher court. As the UK Telegraph reports, one Hasan's victims was a pregnant woman:
"This is nothing more than their disagreement with Major Hasan's strategy in conducting his defense," said the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, rejecting a motion by the standby counsel who are tasked with assisting Hasan as he represents himself.
The attorneys argued Wednesday that Hasan is trying to help the prosecution achieve a death sentence.
Private Francheska Velez, 21, who had become pregnant while serving in Iraq, was one of those killed in the massacre carried out by Hasan, an American-born Muslim, in a medical building at the Fort Hood military base in Texas on Nov 5, 2009.For this, Hasan deserves a pure death sentence, and I'd recommend his head be cut off and he be put before a firing squad that fire at more than just his torso. They should fire at his shitty face too until it's completely unrecognizable. Then, they should run over his body with a tank to smash it all into debris. That's how murderers should be dealt with. They don't even deserve a decent burial.
In emotional testimony at the Fort Hood trial on Thursday, Sergeant Maria Guerra, who was on the other side of an office door when Hasan opened fire, said: “I hear 'Run, run,’ and I hear 'He’s coming.’ I hear 'Please don’t, please don’t. My baby, my baby.’ And then I hear shots. I hear continuous shots.
“When I opened the door I could hear a pin drop it was so silent. I see bodies, I see bodies everywhere, and I see blood. No-one is moving. I yelled 'Is everybody OK?’ and I started hearing 'Help me, I’m bleeding, help me.’”
The attorneys for Hasan would be doing everyone involved a favor by ensuring death's bell tolls for him.
