Magistrate Judge Rules Major Nidal Hasan to Remain in Military Hospital until Court Martial … Lawyer Says Hasan Paralyzed & in Pain
According to Saturday’s hospital bed side hearing, Major Nidal Hasan will remain confined to the hospital where he presently is in pre-trial confinement until his court martial takes place. Maj. Nidal Hasan is being held for the first degree murder of 13 individuals, which should be 14, as some actually ponder whether this was a terror act or not.
During a hearing at Maj. Nidal Hasan’s hospital room in San Antonio on Saturday, a magistrate ruled that there was probable cause that Hasan committed the Nov. 5 shooting at Fort Hood, said his civilian attorney, John Galligan. Hasan has been at Brooke Army Medical Center since the shooting that killed 13 and wounded two dozen others.
Galligan told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that the judge also ordered Hasan to pretrial confinement, which usually means jail, until his court martial. The military justice system does not have bail for defendants.
As per Hasan’s attorney John Galligan, the magistrate ruled that Hasan will initially remain in the hospital, where he is in intensive care. Hasan is recovering from gun shot wounds and has no feeling from the chest down and has limited movement in his arms. Hasan has been told his paralysis is permanent.
Galligan Wants Military Justice System to Move More Slowly, Says Accused Fort Hood Shooter is in Severe Pain
Cry us a river, no one cares whether Hasan is in severe pain. Actually, if we were to take a poll most Americans would hope that a murdering, terrorist pig like Hasan was in pain. I guess being paralyzed from the chest down means he wont feel it when he is put in front of a firing squad. Also, don’t be too concerned about your paralysis is permanent. Your life expectancy should not be all that long.
