FORT HOOD, Texas
-- The accused Fort Hood gunman's court appearance Friday for a pre-trial hearing has been delayed.
A military judge at Fort Hood was to consider a motion from the defense and hear other matters on the case.
According to a press release from Fort Hood, "The military judge stated on the record that the accused appeared in court with a beard in violation of Army Regulation 670-1 and Rules for Court-Martial 804(e)(1). The military judge stated that the appearance of the accused was a disruption to the court proceedings. As a result, the military judge delayed pre-trial motions until the near future, when either a closed circuit feed can be set up for the accused to watch the hearings from outside the court room or the accused complies with court order to appear with proper military grooming standards."
Army Major Nidal Hasan is charged with 13 counts of pre-meditated murder and 32 counts of attempted pre-meditated murder for the Nov. 2009 shooting rampage on post.
He faces the death penalty or life in prison without parole in convicted.
His military trial is set to begin in August.
Attaboy, yerhonor! The accused doesn’t get to pretend he’s above the regs. Arrogant POS.
Hasn't Hasan already endorsed Obama?
Gimme 30 seconds with a razor and I can make sure he gets a permanent no-shaving chit.
I didn’t know a disgusting, evil, treasonous log of crap could actually grow a beard.
I don’t care if they have to run him through a car wash, shave his ass and teach him to walk backwards.......get him cleaned up and get him in court.
1: Have 2 Rangers return defendant to cell.
2: Shave him.
3: Return him to court room.
4: Explain the multiple contusions to the judge as follows...
“He cut himself shaving your Honor”.
5: Continue the trial.
I missed that. Please post a link.
Ridiculous. Simply ridiculous. It shouldn't take three strong men more than ten minutes to him presentable. Clean him up and get the trial moving.
Justice delayed is justice denied.
A flick of the old Bic and a firehose. Problem solved in 15 seconds.
If this was a US Navy prison with Marine MPs as guards, he'd be crawling under painted lines to get to chow and standing at attention whenever he's not allowed to sleep.
You mean like at Gitmo with million dollar soccer fields and special meals and on and on. Those bastards never had it so good!
Someone correct me if I am wrong .... But is he paralyzed from the waist down....? I thought he was from being shot....
Nothing to do with the ability to shave....but just for clarification
I guess he can sit in front of a firing squad....
My thoughts exactly.
Now we’ll have months of motions and rulings about his religion & beards vs US Military Code !
1. Remove facial hair with vise grips.
2. Add skin irritant.
3. Resume trial.
Not only has he grown a beard and is out of uniform he is STILL BEING PAID by the Army!!!!!
There was a special on Fox last night on this mess and disgrace to brave fighting men. Two of the boys he shot were discharged with hardly a goodbye or a thank you. Drummed out because they weren’t fit for service because of their wounds. Disability, a little, maybe.
The muzzie POS is paralyzed from the chest down, just give him a skateboard or a furniture dolly and a tin cup and send the bastard packing for the streets.
NO, I have no mercy for a wasted animal like this and not much use for the U.S. Army for letting it go without correction. He was / is a known threat, a muzzie radical from the get go. Educated on the taxpayer’s money.
