    Default Hassan the Terrorist is CONVICTED

    I think firing squad is poetic justice.

    Sure.....until you factor in that the last military member actually executed by the militay was in 1961....

    Let 'em rot in a cell, with nothing but a prayer rug. Treat every month as Ramadan, only one meal in the evening.

    While i do feel its about time they found him guilty, i am surprised all those upper echelon supervisors who continually 'turned a blind eye/advanced him in rank etc' have yet to be punished for anything.
    As for what to do with hassan. I say break his limbs and put him in a pig pen to get eaten!

    Right now? Five. Three have appeals pending and two have exhausted all appeals (as of 2009). Total of 15 have been sentenced to death since the gov brought back the military death penalty option in '84. 2x the sentence was commuted, 8x the conviction was reversed, 5 sit on death row....

    Actually it's 4 now. On Aug. 9, the Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals ruled 3-2 to throw out the death sentence against former SrA Andrew Witt because the defense had overlooked key evidence that could have persuaded jurors to sentence Witt to life rather than death. The court ordered the case sent back to the convening authority and authorized a new sentencing hearing.

    There was an article in the AF Times recently. It's online, but restricted to subscribers (give it about a week and it'll be open to all)

    Edit. I just checked your source. If you dig farther to HERE they have a note about Witt's overturn. Not sure why they still have him on the list of five. My understanding is he would be taken off death row even if the Military challenges the appeal to a higher court, until a higher court rules if he should go back on death row.

    We have not seen the last of the Ft Hood shooter. I think that any rational appellate judge will look at this trial and clearly see that he should not have been allowed to act as his own lawyer. His actions as his lawyer are enough to warrant a new trial... and I am fairly certain he knows that.

    How many appeals do they get?

    Maybe that's WHY he defended himself, didn't call any witnesses etc.. Cause he was WANTING to get found guilty, so he could appeal it based on shoddy defense.

    I think that is exactly why. And since there were so many eyes on this (politics) the trial judge was probably pressured to let him be his own lawyer despite her better judgement. After all, they spent a year just trying to determine if an AD Army Officer should be allowed to grow a beard despite a regulation which already states he cannot.
