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.

Bales’ Wife Believes Her Husband Is Innocent

You know, it’s bad enough that Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales is accused of murdering 17 afghan civilians in a shooting rampage but to interview Bale’s wife who says “I just don’t think he was involved,” is pretty damn irresponsible. In respect to all the soldiers who are serving in Afghanistan and the families of the victims this kind of journalism helps no one!!!

Psst Had Bales shot 17 US soldiers I’m sure the situation would be very different.

2nd Psst It also makes me very uneasy that President Obama has given the victim’s families $50,000 each in hush money compensation.

Want sauce with that?
