That nearly 300000 dollars in salary as he sits behind bars he's still getting paid.
The reason is major Hasan is an active duty member of military that's why we call a major outside.
And a jury has convicted him of a single solitary thing that he says he's the shooter does not matter you and -- are paying him.
Now some Republican lawmakers introduced a bill to stop the cash flow -- from -- on.
But for any service member charged.
With rape sex assault -- capital offense -- I get it.
Understand -- thinking because they look at this -- on the go video.
Tony -- going offensively Jeff if -- he's a former judge advocate general objects are good to see you.
Because he had the problem is not everybody who is charged with a crime committed a crime for reporting and -- What if someone says that person raped me that person raped me we're going to trial it's -- he said she said later they find out.
That never happened.
And now this person has been paid to lose your home you can lose your car I mean he can't do -- -- -- Well currently certainly can't do that it's it's against the military procedures and obviously that's going to offend a lot of people and I understand the basis in the thrust of what the Republican lawmakers are sponsoring here.
But I think that if they want to focus on righting a wrong.
What they should really be focusing on here is the victims and it's the victims who haven't been paid and don't qualify for any type of payment.
And I would rather prefer to see and I think most Americans would prefer to see.
That the priority among Republican lawmakers and -- and lawmakers right now is to qualify those victims so that they are entitled to some sort of payment.
For for their treatment for their emotional distress and for everything else and I think that should be the priority look.
And in a month or two this guy's gonna be convicted and once he's -- you didn't -- he's not going to be receiving any checks anymore.
You're referring to the fact that they did not consider this a combat.
Deaths if they were combat death under the rules of the military the families would receive compensation.
And so that's not how the classified as they need to figure out another way to do that you say here's another problem.
If he wants it would be whether whether what our viewers feel or how I feel you feel about murder by government.
Doesn't really matter.
We're one of the few nations on the planet it's still lets the government kill people for doing things wrong is that just locking them up.
But -- what this guy wants to be is murdered by government.
Do we let him.
Well you know -- I don't really think that we've seen evidence that that's what he's trying to do I really -- attorneys and attorneys.
I know that's what the defense attorneys are saying but what is he really done he hasn't questioned a few victims what does he got a question -- -- The fact that he shot them is not just in dispute the fact that they sustained injuries is not in dispute what is it exactly his defense attorneys would do differently I don't really know.
Yeah frankly I don't either I mean they've got enough evidence but -- not everytime I think about they have enough evidence our member Rockingham to Bundy but.
There is a different situation here.
While there have been several several.
Individuals like -- -- who have murdered innocent civilians.
And they have represented themselves successfully.
And just -- that the here in Washington DC we have.
Who had you know was put to death he represented himself until he asked for assistance right now.
A son is not asking for assistance and I don't see any evidence that he needs assistance through or just different forward Jack nice to see it.
I see you.
