FORT HOOD, Texas — The attorney for the Army psychiatrist accused of killing fellow soldiers at Fort Hood says doctors have told the soldier he may be paralyzed from the waist down. Attorney John Galligan told The Associated Press on Friday that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan told him that he has no feeling in his legs and doctors say the condition may be permanent. Galligan says Hasan also told him he had extreme pain in his hands. Hasan was shot by police officers responding to last week's shootings at Fort Hood. Galligan spoke with him Thursday in the intensive care unit at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. Hasan has been charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder in the attack at the sprawling Texas post that also left 29 people wounded. THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

Good. When it comes time for his execution, when we won’t need a paralytic agent when we put the sodium hydroxide into his vien.

Let’s hope he suffers a lot, right up to the point when he is sent to spend eternity with 72 Helen Thomas’s who have not showered in a decade.

He may be a suspect in a court of law, however with eye witnesses and 2 police officers shot also ... he is a murderer.

The electric chair awaits! Till some ACLU whiny lawyer comes along and claims ‘cruel and unusual’. Hope judges remember then the victims of this murderer and their families.

extreme pain in his hands

Let him make the connection - he used both his hands to kill 13 and injure 30 of our undefended military.

I volunteer to test this hypothesis by amputating both legs using nothing but a blowtorch.

Paralyzed? Put him in a room by himself, paste pictures of naked women all over the ceiling, run a tube in his nose and force feed him liquified SPAM, and make him listen to reruns of Pat Roberetson all day long.

Ok, the reruns may be classed as “Cruel and Unusual punishment but who cares!;-D

Should make it a breeze to hang him.

I guess he’ll struggle less when they string him up.

I wonder if his lawyer(s) is preparing an unreasonable force lawsuit against the Fort Hood police dept.

Isn’t this just too damn bad?

Galligan, defense atty, remember that.

Nobody should take this case, nobody. The POS needs to feel as empty and abandoned as his soul was ...just alone and stranded with his own polluted and perverse thoughts for the rest of his miserable life.

Oh, and be sure to mess up his virgins deal too.

Either way ... he ain’t running. Sorry, my bad here.

IMHO, the best method is firing squad in the public square. Doesn’t matter if it’s the electric chair or lethal injection as longs as he gets it ... long before the next 20 years of appeals drags on.

I don’t know the appeals process used in the UCMJ but like you hope it isn’t a long drawn out process. I think the President has to sign off on the actually execution when and if it happens, not sure of that though. Take care.

Can’t help but note that his victims have lost feeling in a lot more than their hands, and it is a certainty that THEY’LL never walk again.

It’s okay, Major. You don’t need to be vertical to be executed. It’s easy enough to transfer you from one gurney to the next.
