Military court hears Fort Hood shooting 911 call

16888185 forthoodshooting 10 13 2010 Military court hears Fort Hood shooting 911 call A military court has heard a recording of a 911 call in which a terrified civilian worker begged for help as gunfire and screams rang out around her during last year’s deadly rampage at Fort Hood.

Speaking at an Article 32 hearing to determine if an Army psychiatrist accused in the attack should stand trial, medical technician Michelle Harper said Wednesday that she hid under a desk at the Army base’s processing center when gunfire erupted Nov. 5.

She said she could only see the shooter’s slow, deliberate footsteps around the center as the tragedy unfolded.

Maj. Nidal Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the attack — the worst mass shooting at an American military base.

    Why bother to determine if Hasan needs a trial? He is guilty and caught in the act. Save tax payers money and proceed to sentencing.

    I agree. I think in a case where the “accused” has to be gunned down himself in order to halt the situation, we don’t really need to have a phase where it somehow, for some reason, needs to be decided if a trial is necessary. It’s absurd and a perversion of the justice system….just sentence him. He’s guilty, and everyone knows it.
