Alleged Gunman Paralyzed
abcnews.com ^ | 11/6/09 | abcnews.com

Posted on 11/06/2009 7:33:15 AM PST by Sleeping Freeper

Witnesses to Thursday's massacre at Fort Hood said alleged shooter Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan appeared calm and shouted "Allahu Akbar!" before opening fire at a crowd of young soldiers, pausing only to reload before he was taken down by a female officer who is being hailed as a hero.

SNIP... The massacre ended when Hasan was shot several times by a civilian security guard. Hasan survived the shootout, but ABC News has learned that he has been left paralyzed by his injuries.

SNIP....

Cone said wounded first responder Sgt. Kimberly Munley, who exchanged gunfire with Hasan and managed to shoot him four times despite being shot herself, put a stop to the carnage with her quick thinking and willingness to go head-to-head with the gun-wielding officer.

"She was quite effective, one of our most impressive young policemen," Cone said. "She walked up and basically engaged him. I think, certainly, this could've been far worse."

Cone said Munley spent Thursday night calling her fellow co-workers from her hospital bed to make sure everyone was OK.

This toord won’t have to worry about being paralyzed for too long. Wonder what happens when they hang you while you’re in a wheelchair?

Paralyzed?

I guess he won't kick as much when he hits the end of the rope.

Last sentence of article is interesting:

“Hasan, who was reportedly upset about an upcoming deployment to Iraq, had been disciplined in the past for preaching to his patients about his Muslim faith.”

So they knew. They knew he was insanely devoted to Islam.

This is not the ending he would have wanted. He was fully expecting to be killed. Instead, he was paralyzed by a girl.

If indeed this report is true and not yet another rumor coming out of this terrible incident...it's fine.

When this islamic muslim dirtbag is hung, he'll drop straight and true...that is a good thing.

I heard some "talking head" on FOX this AM saying that he hoped the creep would be tried in the civilian court system! I almost choked on my coffee.

This is an individual in the active military who shot and killed active duty military members (and perhaps others) on a military post/base.

And this idiot suggests he be tried as a "civilian"????

What a maroooon!

Nope...UCMJ...judgement....execution (preferably by firing squad).

It's that simple.

The son of a bitch was already mentally paralyzed by a barbaric medieval death cult. Hopefully the physical paralysis starts at the neck.

He might also have severe brain damage - although we've been told he was shot four times, we don't the extent and nature, nor the location of his wounds.If he has head wounds, he may never come out of his coma.

If he’s paralyzed, that means we’ll need to hang him up on a stout nail in the telephone pole before shooting him.

At least he won’t flinch.

I heard that Geraldo hoped he’d be tried in a civilian court — the meaning being, that in Texas, he’d automatically get the death penalty.

Army has three options at Ft Leavenworth. Hanging, lethal injection and electric chair. My only complaint is that they will likely put him in the medical wing or in D block for his own protection.

Might not be the best class of soldiers at the fort but they will flat make you pay if you turn on your own. In federal prison, child abusers are the lowest. In the USDB, traitors or those that turn on their fellow soldiers are the lowest.

If that isn’t sublime justice, I don’t know what is. Islam is a religion of fools. They treat women like cattle or slaves, not even worthy of going to pray along side the men. They deserve what they’ll get in the end.

Allahu Akbar

If he had shouted "Death to *n-words*" the media would surely be trumpeting the racist motivation of the shooter. But for some reason they can not bring themselves to comprehend the motivation of a religious fanatic.

Hasan's cousin, Nader Hasan, issued a statement late Thursday. "Hasan's cousin, Nader Hasan, issued a statement late Thursday. "We are shocked and saddened by the terrible events at Fort Hood today. We send the families of the victims our most heartfelt sympathies," the statement read. "Nidal was an American citizen. He was born in Arlington, Va., and raised here in America. ... Our family loves America. We are proud of our country, and saddened by today's tragedy."

Once again, no condemnation for his cousin's actions.

Also, why do I recognize the name of that Muslim chaplin?

Why do they have him on life support? We need those ventilators for swine flu victims. This guy has said and done all he needs to do. Now he is just using up our soon to be scarce health care resources. Pull the plug.

"...that in Texas, he’d automatically get the death penalty."

The UCMJ has the death penalty for capital crimes. It always has.

And the UCMJ does not have to get the entire civilian judicial system including ACORN and the ACLU and the liberal Supreme Court and all the rest...involved.

It's trial, judgement, execution.

It is not at all surprising that the Jaraldo the "talking head" does not know this...but then again, he's not the brightest buld in the chandellier, is he?
