Maj. Nidal Hasan and many of his victims in the Fort Hood shooting seem to want the same thing — his death.
But while survivors and relatives of the dead view lethal injection as justice, the Army psychiatrist appears to see it as something else — martyrdom.
As the sentencing phase begins Monday following Hasan's conviction for killing 13 people in the 2009 attack, the conflict has not gone unnoticed.
Autumn Manning, whose husband Shawn Manning survived being shot six times, views the death penalty as a double-edged sword. On the one hand, Hasan would get what he deserves. On the other, it also gives him exactly what he wants.
Hasan is a U.S.-born Muslim of Palestinian descent. He told a military panel in 2010 that martyrdom was a goal.
