Fry him

I hope SGT Hasan Akbar gets the death penalty for killing two officers by tossing a grenade into a sleeping tent right before Op Iraqi Freedom kicked off.
By the way, the last U.S. soldier sentenced to death was SGT William Kreutzer, who killed an officer* and wounded 18 others in a sniper attack during morning PT at Fort Bragg in 1995 (Six note: I was 150 meters away from the shooting and helped wounded soliders make it to the hospital afterwards).
However, military appellate courts have thrown out four death sentences since 1998, including Kreutzer's.

*that officer was MAJ Stephen Badger, the 2nd Brigade S2 and a father and stepfather of eight children.
