Maj. Nidal Hasan’s death sentence, handed down by a military jury Wednesday, is the type of rare death sentence for a mass murder that approaches some of the most notorious crimes in history.

The nature of the crime matched the treasonous motivations seen in crimes such as the Oklahoma City bombing. And in that case, the chief perpetrator, Timothy McVeigh, was handed a relatively swift execution, put to death four years after his conviction.

        Heard enough about Hasan and any other terrorist or mass murderer. We shouldn't give them media attention. I believe it inspires the extreme behavior and terrorist acts of future terroristic individuals. They don't deserve recognition. Feel so badly for the victim's that have to continually hear about the terroristic individuals-who have offered no sympathy for what they have done to innocent people. Terrorist don't deserve this level of recognition through the media. Allow victims and survivors to find their new normal way of living.
