Judge: Fort Hood Suspect Could Be Forcibly Shaved
Associated Press/ABC News ^ | 25 July 2012 | Staff

Posted on 07/25/2012 12:35:29 PM PDT by moonshot925

An Army psychiatrist charged with killing 13 people in a shooting rampage at Fort Hood will be forcibly shaved if he doesn't remove his beard himself, a judge said Wednesday.

Maj. Nidal Hasan appeared in court Wednesday sporting a beard as he did during a court appearance last month. The beard violates Army regulations, but Hasan said it is an expression of his Muslim faith.

The judge, Col. Gregory Gross, held Hasan in contempt of court for keeping the beard and fined him $1,000. Fort Hood spokesman Chris Haug said Gross gave Hasan the choice to shave on his own or be forcibly shaved sometime before his court-martial begins Aug. 20.

Hasan, 41, is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the November 2009 shootings. He faces the death penalty if convicted.

I hope they use a traditional straight razor, and he thrashes around while they use it.

"Ooh, ooh, pick me, pick me!

For those too young to remember, that was Horshak from Welcome Back Kotter and that is the 1st thing that came to my mind.

I've got a nice old dull hunting knife I'd use and as I'm getting on in years, my hands are not quite as steady as they used to be and I'm apt to slip and oh, well, sorry about that....!

In the old days this would not be tolerated .
He would have been given and order to shave.
If he refused, two very large “Brig Hands” would hold his ass down,hacked the long stuff off with a shears and finished up with a rusty straight razor dry shave.

They should hang him by the threads of his beard and let the lads at Fort Hood use him as a bayonet dummy.

That should have been done on day 1 - before his first appearance. Political correctness has turned people into idiots....

It is my belief that with this man, in this situation, the beard thing is solely a Power Play. When he was carrying out his tasks previously was he bearded? Did the lack of a beard worry him then? When did he suddenly feel the need for a beard? Shave it off!

This Muslim murderer all but kept a neon sign above his head telling the Army that he was anti-American and a terrorist sympathizer but they were so afraid of 'offending' his Muslim religion by discharging him (he received a promotion, instead) that he had the opportunity to murder 13 people in a military post. Now they want to 'crack down' - on his stupid beard? Too little, too late.

Nidal Hasan murdered in cold blood with many witnesses while shouting 'Allahu Akbar!' and should be summarily shot, not allowed to futz around in courts for the next few years (arguing about his 'religious rights') while the Army decides whether to execute him or give him another promotion. I'm fed up with this coddling of murderous Muslim fanatics. Nidal Hasan was clearly a terrorist sympathizer and had no business being a military officer yet his pro-terrorist rantings were studiously ignored right up until the time he unloaded on 13 innocent people. It's a poor reflection on the judgement of our military hierarchy and this sudden concern that Hasan observe military appearance regulations while in a military court just seems pathetic.

The man is an officer in the US Army. He is in a military prison. He should be facing inspection at least weekly.

The question is how did he ever manage to grow a beard in the first place.

What’s the big deal? He’s forced to live in a cell. He’s forced to eat the jailhouse grub. He’s forced to come to court. etc, etc, etc.

What is the “story” here?

The military can do whatever they want. I say stick him in a cell with a Bible until he is convicted then take him out and shoot him.

Now we can go on to the next meaningless topic.

The fact that these raghead, murdering, bastards think that Allah's law is the only thing they have to go by in life is reason enough for everyone to detest them. If you believe in the Koran you are an enemy of the United States of America. Islam is the opposite of “peace”. And my big question is, why is this POS still breathing?

Shooting to death is what you may want to do as a "courtesy" for other honorable combatants and even dogs....
Criminals and wild animals you HANG.
He is no where near deserving of bring shot.

Have him walk through pig grease that is just warm enough to stay liquid and then hung OVER a pit of dead pigs. Badly tied knot that does not kill him instantly and he strangles slowly over the pit of dead swine.

So just how do you see that he deserves the "honor" of being shot?

In my day, he would have never grown the beard in the first place. He would have been forcibly shaved and placed on bread and water until he complied with discipline.
