    Well according to the Geneva convention (for what it's worth) he is a spy since he clearly has allegiance to the very people we are at "war" with. Why isn't he executed a spy?

    Why you sorry it the Huffington Post? Their article and journilism is fine. Their editorials and commentary are left which is fine. I find that Huff Post is one of the more accurate reporting meidia's.

    He is a US citizen who murdered other US citizens. He is not a "spy".

    Our system is designed so you are innocent firt. He is entitled to all his pays and allowances. It sucks in this case, but our system of jurisprudence is for everyone.

    I'm sorry it's Huff Post, because I don't care for them.

    I don't care for them because their liberal and left commentary leaks into their reportage. And their reportage is selectively chosen to support leftist ideals and agendas.

    MOST OF THE TIME.

    If I was accused of murder and held in jail, would my employer be bound to keep paying me?

    He was my employee, he has not shown up for work since the incident... To quote Grumpy Trumpy, "You're Fired."

    Well, as a result of his actions, he is now paralyzed from the waist down. I'm not in any big hurry to execute him and put him out of his misery. As for the pay, that's the law. The real crime is that his victims have to jump through so many hoops to get what they deserve.

    I say we give this guy a raise!!!! He should be paid 10,000,000 a year. After he is convicted, no doubt he will be, then let the civil suits come after him. There are 30 people with life altering injuries not to mention the lives lost that could have been sole income providers. I would make sure that he cant spend much of the money in his account other than basic "rights" while in the brig.

    The only thing more distastefull that this guys actions are the administrations labeling of the act work place violence. If there was a white guy with ties to white supremacy that was a janitor at a mosque that went on a rampage and killed/injured many would it be a hate crime or act of work place violence???

    Because we haven't been "at war" since FDR last declared it in 1941.

    You bet he should. They all should. If you can't do the swine, don't do the crime.

    He is US Citizen and thus he is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Under the UCMJ you get paid until you have been convicted under Courts Marshal. These are the rules we follow in this country. Why? Because it not only protects the criminals but it protects us all. We don't want to be in a country in which you are guilty until you prove you didn't do it.
