Default Fort Hood Gunman May Be Paralyzed

Quote:
FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -- The Army psychiatrist accused in the fatal shootings at Fort Hood may be paralyzed from the waist down after being shot multiple times during the attack, his attorney told The Associated Press on Friday.

Civilian attorney John Galligan said Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan told him that he had no feeling in his legs and extreme pain in his hands. Hasan, who was shot four times by civilian police officers, said doctors told him the condition may never improve.

Galligan said he spoke with Hasan for about an hour in the intensive care unit at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio on Thursday, the same day Hasan was charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder.

The attack at the sprawling Texas post last week injured 43 people, including 34 who suffered gunshot wounds. The military initially said 29 people and Hasan had been wounded, but some of the injuries came to the attention of authorities days later as they pieced together what happened the day of the shooting.

Quote:
Galligan said that his client's medical condition remains ''extremely serious'' and that Hasan didn't flinch when Galligan touched his leg. One of Hasan's relatives was able to see him Thursday for the first time since he was hospitalized.

Hospital spokesman Dewey Mitchell said he could not confirm whether Hasan was paralyzed because Hasan told hospital officials not to release any information about his condition or injuries.

Galligan said military prosecutors have not told him whether they plan to seek the death penalty, but he plans to file motions asking for a second military defense attorney and a civilian investigator to help with the case.

Gee I hope he doesn't try to sue the Army.

Now imagine the money we'll spend on both physical and mental therapy for this coward...

I cannot stress enough that this douche bag should have been killed as an enemy combatant on the battlefield he created.

I really want to hear what he has to say before he is executed.

This is BS treatment of personel that does not think like the "mainstream" army. I want to know how many times Nidal was asked to put down his weapon be for law enforcement acted so dangerously. I am sure had someone only reasoned with him this could have been resolved without harm to the Major. Now look what this poor man has to go through. I hope they don't make fun of him because of his disability.

His last words should have been "allahu akbar."

You aren't curious about his state of mind or views or opinions or anything?

I want him to say stuff that will help us in the ongoing battle against the Islamization of America.

If he is dead he is just one more dead Jihadist. If he puts his foot in his mouth he will damage things for CAIR and the other organizations.

No, I am not interested in what this douche bag has to say.
We will find out plenty as we investigate his associates & computer files.
There's no need to give him a platform to get attention.
The only good jihadist is a dead jihadist.

Not to mention the show trial. I'm betting Obama's AG will end up finding a way to let him go.

We must impeach. The President is guilty of treason!
