Judge Grants Delay to Fort Hood Shooter's Attorneys

October 12, 2010  | 

Legel maneuvering has delayed the probable-cause hearing for Maj. Nidal Hasan's defense for last year's massacre at a soldier deployment center at Fort Hood.

Col. James L. Pohl, the presiding Army judge, stopped the hearing at midday. The Army psychiatrist's defense team led by Lt. Col. Kris R. Poppe asked for a continuance until Nov. 8 to allow time for processing of what he described only as "paperwork" recently submitted to Army officials, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Supposedly this Article 32 hearing is to decide if there is enough evidence to go to trial! What more do they want? Hasan was shot while in the act then immediately taken into custody and has remained so. We KNOW he is the perpetrator. We also counted the dead and wounded. The defense will try for leniency or avoiding trial altogether by claiming he had psychological troubles and was not responsible for his actions at the time or other tear jerking excuses such as being partially paralyzed from wounds received while murdering his fellow soldiers. Taxpayers will be supporting him and paying his medical bills for the rest of his life because it would be too cruel to sentence him to death. Beside that, everyone is afraid to do or say any thing that might offend Muslims and bring on a temper tantrum. But the Pentagon is going to "beef up" its security and surveillance systems on military bases. Instead of doing something logical such as lifting the restrictions on individuals being armed on post, they will continue making our bases "gun free" zones and supposedly safer. All that does is maintain a target rich environment where there is comparatively little risk for the shooter(s). What is so hard to understand about the proven fact that criminals and terrorists do not care about rules and laws nor will they be impeded by them?
