No, the Fort Hood shooting happened in 2009, not during the last year, 2012.
..as the shooter was asian descent and all the victims were white.
If my understanding of the details are correct. Maj. Hassan is being charged by the Army under the Uniform Code of Military Justice(UCMJ). This system makes no distinction between murders motivated by hate from any other murder. For the Army, murder is just murder. What an outstanding concept.
