WALL OF SHIPPING CONTAINERS Set Up Outside Nidal Hasan “Workplace Violence” Trial

Just your typical “workplace violence” trial…
A three story wall of shipping containers was set up outside the Nidal Hasan trial at the Lawrence H. Williams Judicial Center at Fort Hood, Texas.

The extra precaution was due to possible terrorist threats… But Obama says it was “workplace violence.”

Newser reported:

The one-story courthouse on the edge of the Texas Army post is surrounded by hundreds of stacked freight car-size shipping containers, and by tall dirt- and sand-filled barriers designed to protect it against the impact of a bomb blast. Armed soldiers stand guard around the building.
