FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - Military jurors sentenced Maj. Nidal Hasan to death on Wednesday for the 2009 shooting rampage at the Texas Army post that left 13 people dead and more than 30 others injured. Here are some quotes from survivors, victims' families and others involved in the trial:
"I didn't want him getting any satisfaction, so him getting killed by the government just gives him what he wanted to me. He wanted to be a martyr."
Eduardo Caraveo, 35, of Tucson, Ariz., whose father was killed in the rampage.
"I don't know how long it takes for a death sentence to be carried out, but the world will be a better place without him."
Kathy Platoni, Army reservist who witnessed the shooting.
"It just emphasizes to me how unfair the death penalty is when applied in the military setting. ... I think he was abandoned by his lawyers. "
John Galligan, Hasan's former lead attorney.
"This is not his gift to God. This is his debt to society. This is the cost of his murderous rampage."
Col. Mike Mulligan, lead prosecutor.
