Fort Hood Terrorist Nidal Malik Hasan Could Be Moved To Local Jail

Accused Fort Hood Gunman Could Be Moved To Local Jail


Bell County Sheriff Dan Smith confirmed Friday that his office and Fort Hood officials have been talking for several weeks about transferring accused Fort Hood gunman Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan from a San Antonio military hospital to the Bell County Jail.

Hasan is charged with 13 counts of murder in the shooting rampage on Nov. 5, 2009 at the post’s Soldier Readiness Center that left 13 dead and 29 injured.

He was left paralyzed in an exchange of gunfire with two civilian police officers who are credited with ending the massacre.

For 15 years, the Bell County Jail has had a contract with Fort Hood for housing military prisoners charged under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

“Because of this existing contractual relationship,” Smith said, “Fort Hood has asked me to consider housing Hasan in our jail.”

Hasan’s attorney John Galligan confirmed that the Army wants to move Hasan, but said he would rather his client be transferred either to Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center or to a secure location on post.

Hasan is facing an Article 32 Hearing, the military equivalent of a civilian grand jury review, which will determine whether he stands trial for the deadly shooting


Wild Thing's comment.......

Apparently the article is written by a touchie feeling leftie. Words like gunman instead of TERRORIST for instance.

I hope he gets a steady diet of painful beatings for the rest of his miserable life. Maybe he can have an untimely accident. And put Helen Thomas photos as pinups in his cell.

What would the Apaches have done with him? Turn him over to Chuck Norris and the Texas Rangers perhaps?

A Helen Thomas pinup? That would be cruel and unusual punishment. Besides, he probably already has one.

"And put Helen Thomas photos as pinups in his cell."-also place him in a cell with an overhead pipe and forget to take away his belt....

A jail cell will be very restrictive for someone in a wheelchair. I also doubt the local jailers will be very responsive to Hasan's needs or wants. The rest of his life is not going to be very pleasant. Hope he suffers greatly.
