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.

Just checking to see if there is a chance this could go to trial in time to be an issue in the 2012 campaign.

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.

Simple.

the military judge delayed pre-trial motions until the near future

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.

Well the Puke is no doubt being advised by various “attys” to do certain things to make life difficult for the prosecution now or in the future. In the Navy many years ago they were called “Sea Lawyers” but they were all shits just the same. I helped run a Navy brig years ago and I can tell you the puke would appear in court fully adhering to standards whether he liked it or not.

The hell kind of military prison is he in where he gets to grow a beard?

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.

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....

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.

I would use a cutting torch to shave this bastard. start at 3’ and let him stop you and shave it off himself at any time. He would not last long. And yes I would enjoy it.

Man, it seems they tried and executed McVey faster than they have tried this jihadist. Goes to show who our government is targeting as the REAL terrorists in America. It’s not jihadists.

Strap him down and let a squad of gay hairdressers shave his ass bald, from head to toe. Resume trial. 'Nuff said.

McVeigh was in the civilian system and, more importantly, he mounted no defense to speak of and waived his appeals. He’d be alive today in all likelihood had neither been the case.

Be sure to SLAP!! some aftershave on the POS when you’re done with the shave.

Lots of alcohol in it so it burns real good.

My first night at Basic(1958), the DI said we would all shave at 0400 hours before morning muster. On smart ass with stubble told the DI he had no razor the comeback was “you can tweese it or swinge it off but it better be missing in the AM”. The grunt asked what was “swinge” and the reply was “ use your lighter!”

I don't understand why he's being tried before a military court. After all, the government has classified his assault and multiple murders at Ft Hood as an incident of "workplace violence."

So add another charge of violating AR 670-1. I’m sure his beard won’t stop a needle/bullet/rope.

Or save a lot of time and money and just give this POS to me. I know where there are a few pig farms....

I’d think that a strong case of treason could be made against Hassan.

Fox news heated this up today with the documentary tonight regarding the shooting. It clearly shows a cover up by the Holder run IN-JUSTICE department. How this is not an act of terrorism should be made a major election issue.

This has been classified as work place violence.

We need a change in 2012 in the white House.

Very sad when our political correctness calls TERRORISM work place violence.
