Wants Military Justice System to Move More Slowly, Says Accused Fort Hood Shooter is in Severe Pain.

Major Nidal Hasan, charged with killing 13 in the Fort Hood shooting spree, is paralyzed from the chest down and is not a flight risk, said his defense attorney after a hearing before a military magistrate in Hasan's hospital room Saturday. The accused Fort Hood shooter had his first court hearing in the intensive care unit of a San Antonio hospital at 1 p.m. His status has now been changed from pre-trial restriction to pre-trial confinement, meaning that he will be confined until his court martial.

The military magistrate ruled that Hasan will stay at Brooke Army Medical Center for now, but the military has the option of moving him to another medical facility or to jail. According to defense attorney John Galligan, Hasan is paralyzed from the chest down, is incontinent and "in severe pain."

Brilliant. Although I would prefer that they pour scalding bacon grease down his throat first. That way he can enjoy the pain for a while before he gets to his sty with his 72 virgin swine.

Or, perhaps they could use a 410 gauge shotgun loaded with rock salt. That sensation could last many hours. Either way, the skidmark should suffer for many hours before he meets his 72 swine.

The people in Charge of the United States care nothing about the people in the United States. As soon as this is realized then the Real Change can begin. If people expect the Change to come with the present philosophy or thinking or the present Politicians they'll be waiting Forever for positive action to renew the social and economic conditions in the United States. You'll need the same Can-Do attitude as there is now in China.
Go after the Politicians and their thinking, like your Senator Grassley, the biggest Crook of all the Politicians in the United States today. He's guilty of War Crimes, these are the criminal charges that have no immunity from prosecutions; go after him and everyone he knows.

Yes, deng deserves that, what about Hasan? You know if he spends his time in prison, it won't be without influencing those around him in a negative way. People who could get out and do more harm.

Deng is paralyzed from the neck on up and look how he still manages.

Ain't that a site that has been barred from their POS country?

Hey Dung. Newsflash for you. No government on this Earth is going to tell everything to everybody. That's why governments employ spies. Some are just more adept at keeping secrets from their populace and feeding them bullshot (o for the i). And if you think I give a hoot in hell what my government thinks about what I say, just check into the Presidential Archives of all the postings to the White House and to Pres. Obama. Come on, it's legal under the Freedom of Information Act. You'll see where I disagree with the way he is trying to pass the health care legislation down our throats. I agree with his assertion that all Americans should have coverage and not be dropped by insurance companies nor be 'uninsurable' due to present or previous health issues. And guess what? I'm still here and free to work and say what I will about anything our government does or doesn't do.

You still kicking or has the Politiboro sent your family the bill for the bullet that silenced your pathetic attempt to spread discontent amongst the democracies?

There's is no comparison between a trained military going to war in Afghanistan and a civilian in America being willing to defend by piling a gunman regardless of whether it be on a military base or a fast food restaurant or on school grounds.
Even by attempting to make such a comparison is changing the subject and misdirection.
If this happens again and you are there I assume the last thing you will hear as the bullet aerates your head is "allahu akbar' when if I am there and if he doesn't kill me with the first shot the last thing I will hear is his thorax crushing in my hand.
That is the way it is but you demonstrate that you have no concept of self defense or the protection of others, after all, that's what the police waaaaay down the road or on the other side of town are for right?
In that event you are dying while excepting them to travel faster than bullets to get there and save you.

Muchas Gracias. Feliz Navidad y prospero Ano Nuevo. See, there really not that much difference between Spanish and English. Merry Christmas to you also and Happy Holidays. There is also a Latin custom of celebrating the day of the 3 Kings. It is on January 6th and it's celebrated with a big pastry ring cake-kind of like the one from Mardi Gras-and it contains a baby Jesus inside. Tradition has it that whoever finds the baby hidden in the cake has to hold the next party. It was when the gifts were handed out to commerate then the 3 kings gave Jesus his gifts. So also, Feliz dia de los Reyes Magos.

Thanks for the info(reminder). I heard about the pastry ring last year with the little rubber/plastic baby of toys(years gone by), and about the celebration, and who ever found the baby, etc. Sounded like a really neat way to celebrate! And yes being a 5th generation Texan I do comprende a little Spanish, and can determine the different lingos when they are from other parts of the Country. I have a man/woman living next door(that I didn't understand their lingo, until I found out he was from El Salvadore, and she from Honduras. So I can do fair carrying on a conversation. Then last night I ran across another lingo(Satelight receiver installer). He sounded a little different, so during the conversation I found out he is Cuban-American, so I'm still learning in my 'older' age. Thanks! So now if I can learn Spreck-un-ze-duetch, or Par-la-vu-Fransa, maybe I can get somewhere?? Gootten-tag, Ah-veter-zane! Ron. Asta Ma~nana(sorry can't get this English computer to spell right!).

Just reading the posts you have with the gent. from El Paso is a good thing to see that neither you nor him have hard feelings towards each other on opinions or ideas that one agrees to disagree with. Kinda falls within the Christmas spirit, Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men.

I'm from your neck of the woods, the Greater East Bell County area, but have been in the military and have settled in Albuquerque area. Why the ISP states Denver, I'll never know. Been out for awhile and haven't been back to the Central Texas area for almost 3yrs. Hope nothing much has changed.

Merry Christmas to the both of you.

Killeen has a population of over 100,000 now (including Copperas Cove/Ft. Hood, and all the communities around it). We had a very hot/dry spring/summer, and some/most of the Lakes dried up, all but Lake Waco(presently full). latin lover an I had a few conversations(comments), but reached a mutual understanding. So It's Peace On Earth, and Goodwill to 'all' men/women, around here. And I want to thank you for your Military time also!

I thought Taylor had the Biggest Rattlesnake roundup...well, maybe for the area. Living right now in Los Lunas area. Hopefully will be moving to Edgewood in the next 60 days. Need to see some real trees and grass instead of scrub and cacti. LOL!

Sweetwater Rattlesnake Roundup, since 1958. The first year the catch was about 8,800 snakes(same the second year), now they weigh the pounds. The Round-up is every March(second Sunday) and they have thousands of people(even from Foreign Countries) there. It's quite a big Event! And yes Sir,other towns have Rattlesnake Roundups. But not like Sweetwater, Texas. If you ever have time to go to one, you'll be amazed at 'everything' that they have. Barbeque Briskit cook-off, Chili cook-off, Bean cook-off, Desert cook-off, etc. fried rattlesnake, etc.,etc.

I was traveling west during a three-day weekend when I stopped at the rest area just east of town and the local JC's or whoever was in charge of the refreshments there had rattlesnakes in cages and glass aquariums. This one ol' boy must have thought it was a toy snake in the container because as he put his face near the glass, the snake struck at him. He jumped back, eyes as round as silver dollars, and hauled butt for his tractor. LOL! I had never seen a black man turn white as a ghost before. ROFLMAO! Bet he'll never stop there again after that.

Sounds quite comical. When they have the Roundups, they milk the snakes venom for anti-venom shipped all over the World to save lives of people that get snake bites, and use 'every part' of the snake, nothing wasted. And always seen to have about the same amount of pounds every year, so they sre 'not' hunting/killing them into extension. So if you can ever make the Hunt, it's quite an experience!! I apologize to the rest of the commenters for being off Topic.

Not a problem. Come on over to the Albuquerque Topix Free Forum site and hang out with our group. Chat about anything at anytime.

Hassan is in pain, huh? Well, he doesn't get my sympathy. I say to give him more pain by showing all the victims and of their families that he has affected.
