Fort Hood Shooter Trial Delayed Indefinitely Over Beard
The Blaze ^ | Augnust 18, 2012 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 08/19/2012 5:19:25 AM PDT by SLB

A military appeals court placed the trial for accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan on hold indefinitely Friday amid continuing issues surrounding Hasan’s refusal to shave his beard, CNN reported.

The court martial was first halted Wednesday so the appeals court could consider the Army psychiatrist’s objections to being forcibly shaved. He has been fined and held in contempt repeatedly for remaining bearded, which is a violation of Army regulations, but says the facial hair is an expression of his faith. Hasan, 41, is an American-born Muslim.

Hasan’s court martial had been scheduled to start Monday for the 2009 mass shooting at Fort Hood, for which he faces 13 charges of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted meditated murder.

Hasan first grew the beard in June, prompting a pre-trial hearing to be postponed. The judge in the case, Col. Gregory Gross, threatened in July to have Hasan forcibly shaved if he did not comply with orders to remove the beard on his own.

According to CNN, it was unclear how long the case would be on hold.

Color me surprised (not). Hasan can't be dealt with while the petulant man-child is Resident. No reminders of his ROP.

So if you grow a beard you won’t face a military court. I wonder if everyone facing court martial will try this.

Moslems murder Americans with impugnity,
protected by Obama and Holder and the entire DOJ and Pentagon.

This evil man came in with Obama and murdered and murdered
..... and IS STILL PROTECTED.


“Maj. Malik Nidal Hasan … served on the Homeland Security Policy Institute’s
Presidential transition task force between April 2008 and January 2009
when Barack Obama was inaugurated as the nation’s 44th president.”

Meanwhile, Obama's Moslem Brotherhood
has begun to crucify entire populations
after getting the green light from 1600 Penn. Ave.

Expression? OK. Requirement? Obviously not since he was all right for years without a beard. Just on of those little weaselly muzzlem lies.

HE IS GAMING THE P.C. SYSTEM, and he is winning! I’m glad that these things happen to show us how vulnerable we really are. Of courese, Eric Holder is very happy, this proves him to be a GREAT General Attorney. Out there risking his life to protect us all from the enemies. Wow, we’ve got a GREAT administration. And they’re DOING so much, they ought to be elected for another 4 years. Give them PRAISE. All Praise to Allah, He is taking America by the humble servant there in Ft. Hood.

They could try him with the beard, under the UCMJ, as a traitor or a spy. But the obvious reason is that Bobo will never allow this guy to be tried under his mau mau regime. Doesn't fit the narrative, ya'll...

Why bother with shave and shovel. Just shoot.

If dumping the body of Usama was a good thing to prevent the grave becoming a shrine, the same is true of Hassan.

Shoot him, load the corpse on a C 130, and shove it out the back door over the ocean miles and miles from land

site him for contempt.

try him, execute him and take the $50 fine for contempt out of his bank account after he achieves room temperature.

looks like the THE REGIME does not want to ruffle THE BASE before the election.

I suspect that the military will show a fair amount of patience, and then rig up a TV with a audio capability for Major Jihad to talk from a room down the hallway. If he doesn’t want to bathe or clean himself....fine, just sit there in the wheelchair for eight hours a day and enjoy the world in your final days. He knows the results from his action already...he doesn’t have much to live for.

Absolutely. And we, through our idiot government, are allowing him to game it. Don't you think Islamists around the world know what's going on, and that Barry is winking at this?

It's like the pictures of Barry with his shoes up on the desk in the White House--it's not just casual, or casual disrespectfulness; no, it's a coded message to the Islamic world, where soles of the shoes is a major insult. It can't be accidental.

Beard be damned. Try him and move on with the execution. There are millions of people who wear beards. A beard is NOT the man, only a symbol of a bad shave.

So the absence of a beard, prior to the domestic terrorist shootings, is indicative of his commitment to his faith? Now he makes this specious claim? Has “the one” ever visited these families or Fort Hood?

If the trial is indefinitely postponed just because of a stinking beard, he will NEVER go to trial. There will be one loophole after another after another.

The only reason they can’t try him is because of the current law. The only reason this terrorist grew a beard was because of the law. If the lawyer told his client to grow the beard to delay the trial, can’t the lawyer be charged with contempt?

I would go ahead with the trial anyway. What is more important? Is he being clean shaven more important than a trial for mass murder? They have lost perspective here.

As I recall, this POS is paralyzed, restrain what is left functional, shave him, try him, shoot him, dump the body at sea with lots of weights.

Better yet, just shoot him and feed what is left to the hogs.

DONE.

This whole affair and the repetitive loss of our soldiers to Afghan traitors, sneaks and dogs is insane.

It is truly instructive how fearful we are of insulting Islam.

Don't think for a second Muzzies all over the world don't see it and are laughing their heads off at the cowardly infidels and cheering their killers onward!

This is very simple. Restrain what’s left of his usable appendages, then shave it off. I would prefer that they use a dull blade and no shaving cream, but a ceremonial sword and some Barbasol could also work. Anyhow, this really isn’t a very hard decision to make. It offends me greatly that this wretched, sub-human slime has yet to be tried.
