Fort Hood Trial


Soldiers guard a security checkpoint outside the Lawrence H. Williams Judicial Center on the second day of the trial for Maj. Nidal Hasan at Fort Hood, Texas on Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2013. The standby attorney for the soldier charged in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage accused Hasan on Wednesday of deliberately charting a course toward a conviction and death sentence, abruptly halting the trial after only one day. Lt. Col. Kris Poppe, Hasan's lead court-appointed standby attorney, said he is willing to step in and be Hasan's defense lawyer. But he asked that his responsibilities as co-counsel be minimized if Hasan, who is representing himself at trial, continues to work toward being executed.
