Spot The Mass Killer Difference

This morning as I did my daily news read I noticed this ….



One reads “US Afghan massacre soldier gets life”  and the other reads “Ft Hood shooter guilty, faces death”.  Hmmm?

So anywho, I then clicked on each article to discover these headings ….

“Life, no parole for US soldier Robert Bales who massacred 16 Afghans”

“Ft Hood shooter Nidal Hassan found guilty of 13 charges of murder; now faces death penalty”

Then this is how they justify  each sentencing ….

Robert Bales – “There is only one appropriate sentence for the senseless slaughter of 16 innocent people – a sentence reserved for the worst crimes and worst criminals – confinement for life without eligibility for parole,” 

Nidal Hassan – “From the beginning of the case, the federal government has sought to execute Hasan, believing that any sentence short of a lethal injection would deprive the military and the families of the dead of the justice they have sought for nearly four years.”

OK, call me silly, but aren’t both these men  US military ? Didn’t they BOTH senselessly kill a lot of innocent people? Plus, neither  one has shown any remorse for their actions. So here’s the thing,  shouldn’t the sentence be the same for both? Just saying.

  1. Death sentence for both. If we can’t trust soldiers who do we trust??
    Scary stuff.

  2. Yes the sentence should be the same and there is no justification for it not being the same.

  3. The uniform code of military justice is not so uniform. Good old boys network! The U.S. doesn’t,t need more electric chairs we need electric grand stands!
