Where your tax dollars go...

This guy dropped off the national news after killing 13 at Ft. Hood but he's still shooting taxpayers in the wallet:

Cost of jailing Hasan: More than $200,000

Quote:
It's going to cost the Army about $207,000 to house accused Fort Hood shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, at the Bell County Jail until September, according to contract documents released this week.
If anyone deserved some "He needed killin'" justice, it's this guy.

I think we need to show some sympathy for the guy. Drop the charges, declare him medically fit, and send him to a unit deployed in a combat zone. The guys will take it from there.
