Defense Wont Present Evidence In Hasan Hearing At Fort Hood
FORT WORTH (November 9, 2010)--The defense doesn't plan to present evidence when a military hearing resumes next week at Fort Hood that will determine whether Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan will stand trial for the deadly Nov. 5, 2009 shooting rampage at the posts Soldier Readiness Center.
Defense attorney John Galligan said Tuesday that the government had offered "no surprises" in presenting its case over two weeks in October before Hasan's Article 32 hearing was recessed as the post prepared to observe the anniversary of the shooting.
An Article 32 hearing is the military equivalent of a civilian grand jury review.
It will resume briefly Monday before closing.
A decision on whether Hasan go on trial for 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder will be made later.
Military law experts say it's not unusual for the defense not to present evidence during such hearings.

When there is no doubt as far as guilt, our system just plain stinks. This should have been over before the funerals of those who were killed by this “DEVOTED MUSLIM” as Usama calls these killers.
Because you have none to present.
What evidence would they bring up that would do anything but help convict their client? Their entire case has to be to try to minimize the damage by the prosecution’s witnesses.
However, there ought to be a second trial and everyone who ignored Hassan’s behavior up until he started murdering people and THEY ought to be made to account for their actions.
Let the system work. If they take shortcuts with the guilty, what is to prevent them from taking shortcuts with those who they only think are guilty?
Allah made me do it!
He needs to slip on a banana peel and die.
