What ever happened to...the Fort Hood Shooter?

Cast your mind back to 2009. An American Army psychiatrist had apparently gone on a rampage shooting and killing 13 and wounding 32. He was shot and restrained, and after a bit of speculation that he may have been a terrorist or a terrorist sympathiser, we heard no more. What has happened since?

The next bit of the story is about the shooter himself. He survived being shot and is paralysed from the neck down. His survival provides the families and friends of the dead and wounded an opportunity for justice in the eyes of the law. Investigations were carried out and it appeared he had more than just sympathies for the Islamic extremists.

This week it was decided that he was to stand trial by Court-Martial, and many reports predict that he will face the death penalty.

If i had lost someone on that day, i might feel that a "life" penalty would be more appropriate. But my mind tells me that justice isn't done by making an offender suffer in. The death penalty isn't about causing the person pain, its about executing a punishment in law in the most humane manner.

Justice comes comes not from pain or suffering, but from deprivation of liberty or life.

I might add that i do support the death penalty in a justice system that operates a 100% standard of proof...unless we turn into Minority Report, i don't know of any system in the world that does.
