    has been executed since 1961.  There are currently 5 on military death row, having been there for years.  The Military Justice System automatically includes multiple appeals.  And at the end of the day the Commander and Chief has to approve the execution.

    Hassan ain't going anywhere anytime soon, regardless of what he wants.  Years, decades?

    He's going to rot in Leavenworth for a long, long time.

    And that's good enough for me.

    •  Think of Life w/o Parole as a Death Sentence.... (0+ / 0-)

      ......That takes a long time.
      For those who think the death penalty is worse, I think I'd rather have the death penalty than having to be locked up with the military's worse assholes for the rest of my life, then die there.
      I know someone who spent time in the DB and his opinion confirms this

      Happy just to be alive
