Central Texans respond to Fort Hood shooter trial

Posted:
FORT HOOD -

In less than twenty-four hours starts the mark for the trial of accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan. However, Central Texans aren't happy about it.

"I think this should have started four years ago, I think it should have been ended already," said local pastor Travis Sullivan.

It's still unclear what strategy Maj. Hasan will take, but a local TSA airport agent is concerned that Maj. Hasan representing himself will be overwhelming for the victims.

Joseph Thomas tells News Channel 25 that Maj. Hasan reminds him of the New York City train shooter, Colin Ferguson, who also represented himself during his trial.

"He had to ask 'do you recognize the person who shot you?' and yet he's standing right there in front of him," explained Thomas. "And this individual is going to be doing the same thing."

A local woman is also concerned for the victims, and just wants the victims to finally have peace.

"The victims don't want to really see him, they just want justice."

She says the trial has taken too long, and believes Maj. Hasan took his personal problems too far.
