Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 people in the Fort Hood massacre, has been sentenced to death by the court martial. This is wrong for two reasons.
First, there should be no death penalty for anyone. If you want to argue about whether this or that person should be an exception to the rule, I ask you to distinguish the cases of Gary "Green River" Ridgway, convicted of killing 48 woman, most of whom were sex workers (life imprisonment), and Aileen Wurnos, a sex worker convicted of killing seven customers (death).
Second, this fellow Hasan wants the death penalty. Why give him what he wants? He's paralyzed from the injuries sustained in the course of his crimes -- let him live a long life in prison in that condition. That seems like punishment enough, and it won't make him into a martyr.
