Today marks Day Two in the trial of Major Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 people and wounding more than 30 at Fort Hood on Nov. 5, 2009. The trial is expected to take months – only twelve of the nearly 300 witnesses testified Tuesday. More of the prosecution’s witnesses will testify today as prosecutors continue to build a case against Hasan.
Texas Tech Law Professor Richard Rosen observed yesterday’s testimony. He says the most memorable testimony came from two eyewitnesses to the shooting, Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford and Michelle Harper. Rosen says while there is a lot of evidence and many witnesses, the findings in the case are straightforward.
