Skip to comments.Judge: Fort Hood Suspect Could Be Forcibly Shaved

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.

They need to shave his head off his neck.
I hope they use a traditional straight razor, and he thrashes around while they use it.
why hasn’t this already happened?
have we turned so soft and entrenched in politically correct we can’t even give out lessons in manners?
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....!
You beat me to it!!
They should hang him by the threads of his beard and let the lads at Fort Hood use him as a bayonet dummy.
Let me shave him. I just finished repairing my hedge trimmers and I haven’t tried it out yet.
Full-body wax the bastard, and put it pay per view!
Our miulitary has been PUSSIFIED from the Joint Chiefs on down, for allowing this CRAP to go on!
That boy needs some “wall to wall” counselling and a First Shirt with a clipper...END of discussion!
Shave him with a chainsaw.
[Fort Hood Suspect Could Be Forcibly Shaved]
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!
Use bacon grease as a skin softener.
Can’t risk upsetting some Muslim/s
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.
Don’t shave it.
A lottery should be held to determine who gets to use the razor on this sorry p.o.s.
