$5 Million Spent On Nidal Hasan Included Helicopter Rides...

$200,000 Spent On Helicopter Transportation For Fort Hood Shooter, Hasan's Attorney Says 'Unnecessary Funds Were Spent'
Dec 30, 2013 ~ Nidal Hasan, the former Army psychiatrist who shot and killed 13 people in a Fort Hood military base in 2009 has made 21 different requests in the Texas jail he was being held at while awaiting trial, according to the Associated Press.
Quote:
An NBC News investigation reported an excessive amount of funds spent on Hasan's case alone by the military. A guard was paid to watch Hasan 12 hours a day while he lived in a large ward that could be occupied by more than one person, according to NBC. The cost of helicopter rides from the jail to the Fort Hood courthouse for trials during his jail time was $200,000.

John Galligan who is Hasan's civil attorney called the amount of funds spent by the American government on his case an "overkill," the AP reported. Hasan is now on death row in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Hasan was held at the Bell County Jail for almost four years before being convicted and sentenced to death, the AP reported. "I mean, it's just a bunch of overkill," Galligan told NBC, the AP reported. "Overreach. Unnecessary funds that were spent."

Among his other reported requests, Hasan asked to know where the cheese in his sandwiches was made, as in which company produced it, and asked for a bible and someone knowledgeable about it to whom he could ask "difficult" questions, according to the AP. Records obtained by NBC 5 Investigates show nearly $5 million dollars in expenses, including travel for government lawyers, fees paid to expert witnesses, vehicles and cell phones purchased and major security renovations at the base, NBC reported. "It looked like Gitmo - it was a rat maze. I mean it was all overkill," Galligan said.

According to the army, the costs and expenses were necessary to protect Hasan, but Galligan stated "the Army always justifies this under the rubric of security," according to NBC. Hasan's attorney also stated that though the Army spent massive funds on expenses with the case, the Army did little in aiding Hasan's basic needs, like assistance to use the bathroom after Hasan lost the use of his legs during the shooting, NBC reported. The NBC report also states the Army spent thousands of dollars setting up an office for Hasan after he said he would defend himself in the trial.
