'.......It's Saudi policy that citizens facing incarceration are supplied with an attorney, Al-Jubair said........"

Wonder if the Saudis would pay for it if he was an Apostate?

Even given all the red flags before the Ft. Hood murders, "authorities" acted too late. Al-Zahrani was well under the radar.

He was acting "crazy" I suppose; with the knife in particular. Perhaps the good folks at The Binghamton Psychiatric Center could have helped out if they knew about him, perhaps. Some folks present with even more bizzare behavior and seem to do "alright". Me thinks I smell a defense plea of insanity in the future for Al-Zahrani.

My $.02.

This is what I was trying to bring out. Sorry to cause so much disruption...

I am tired of hearing after any kind of event similar to this (doesn't have to be a college/school shooting) that people start saying the person in question was behaving in a manner that was not "normal" or expected.

I am not sure it can be solved entirely, but if someone would open their mouth and talk to a counselor, cop, doc, nurse....it could prevent this type of tragedy from occurring, IMO.

Your point is of value, and I agree.

Consider if you will, the number of times a perp was described as," a quiet person who would not hurt a fly". "He was a nice quiet man who kept to himself". If you," open your mouth", and get it wrong....woe be unto you. Financial and personal havoc follows. You cough up all you own at the direction of a court. The perp wins and moves on to greener pastures, and then kills.

IMHO, if the ACLU would look to the pain of the victim, and not to the defense of the perp, this nation would be safer, and better for it!!!!

My $.02.

Looks like we'll pay for room and board for Al-Zahrani. Saudi paid for his defense, and they can have him back after 9-15 years, sans his PhD. I wonder if his five years supervised will be here or in Saudi? http://www.pressconnects.com/article...text|FRONTPAGE

Nice to see he didn't get a walk or just sent home with some kind of "immunity".
