‘He killed 15′: Nidal Hasan, convicted on all charges, still collecting Army paycheck

As a matter of fact, we were wondering if Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan, convicted Friday on 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder, is still drawing a paycheck from the U.S. Army. Hasan’s punishment, possibly death, has yet to be determined, as today’s sentencing hearing was cut short due to “logistics issues,” but not before a dozen witnesses recounted the damage Hasan had done to their lives.

The sentencing phase continues tomorrow morning, and Americans are split on whether Hasan should receive the death penalty or be kept alive simply to deny him the status of “martyr” he seems to be seeking.
