Major Nadil Malik Hasan has been sentenced to death by a military jury in Fort Hood, Texas for the massacre of fellow soldiers, according to reports by The Washington Post on Aug. 29. Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, was found guilty after admitting to killing 13 people and wounding 32 soldiers at a Fort Hood military center.
The Army doctor – who acted as his own attorney throughout the trial – was convicted on Aug. 23 by the Texas based military jury.
During press interviews after the sentencing, the families of the slain soldiers took the time to express their feelings; they wished for others to always remember the soldiers who gave up their lives for our country and not think about the shooter responsible who caused their deaths.
On Nov. 5, 2009, the 42-year-old military doctor – planned for deployment in Afghanistan – is permanently paralyzed from the waist down after enforcement officers shot him down during the shooting rampage.
