NBC 5 Investigates has learned the accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan receives extraordinary treatment in jail while victims of the attack argue they have been forgotten and mistreated by the U.S. Army.
While a prisoner awaiting trial, Hasan is ferried by helicopter nearly every day, complete with an additional helicopter escort and security detail, for the 20-mile journey between the Bell County Jail and Fort Hood, courtesy of the United States Army and American taxpayers.
The Army told NBC 5 Investigates the daily helicopter rides are necessary because the jail does not have the proper facilities for Hasan to work on his legal defense and transporting Hasan by car creates additional security concerns. Fort Hood does not have its own jail, so Hasan is being held at the Bell County Jail under a special Army contract.
“News you won’t be seeing on the National Media in the morning...”
By the way, the response from the prosecutor in response to adding the soldier’s suicide to the death toll was “We can not make a comment or respond to this out of the respect for Gen. Hasan’s legal process.”
I forgot to add that in the original post.
probably just a one-day bit of local media sanity
Who orders these things? Can they occur on autopilot? Is it at the discretion of the judge, the base commander, or directed from much higher up—say the Muslim-in-Chief, or VJ, his advisor?
GODDD!!! I hope and pray that these victims families WAKE UP and realize OBAMA will not do anything but to protect HIS PEOPLE. God this makes me angry if true but no one should be shocked if it is. Will just wait unless they change their minds and will not load the story.
I guess Valerie Jarrett is going to be real busy tonight.
NBC showed VIDEO of the transfer happening. 2 choppers taking him back and forth.
I would be happy to contract “build” the coffin to bury the B_tard in.
Get on with the trial.
Reminds me of Glenn Beck promising world shattering news.
To bad Jack Ruby is dead....
Too angry to comment!!
provide a link to the story please.
This need to go viral folks.
Well to be fair the news just went off and it was the top story...the report is probably being put into file format as we speak. They had been tweeting about it and doing promos of it during the game. Trust me...when you watch this video...you are going to see red even more than you probably are right now.
Oh and I’m sure that you all know that the NSA is reading and cataloging all of the conversations held here... Just a reminder to be vigilant.
The link does not go to the story you are reporting.
