Skip to comments.Judge: Fort Hood suspect's beard disrupts court
Posted on 08/22/2012 12:05:52 PM PDT by Zakeet
A judge has the right to order an Army psychiatrist charged in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage to be forcibly shaved before his murder trial, military attorneys told an appeals court Wednesday.
The attorneys, in a document filed on behalf of Col. Gregory Gross, contend that forcibly shaving Maj. Nidal Hasan would not violate the American-born Muslims religious freedoms and said it is similar to and no more invasive than a judges right to restrain a defendant who is disruptive during a court-martial.

I have a lawnmower that I'd love to loan them ... and I don't live all that far away!
Just suffocate him with bacon and get it over with.
Now get on with it - I'll bring the rope!
I have an old dull straight razor I’d loan them to dry shave him with.
He looks like the Colin Farrel character in “Horrible Bosses!”
I’d be willing to bet he has a padded allah rug, a koran and everything else a muzscum needs to bow to his child rapist moHamamadman.
Why isn’t he dead yet?
Day 1: shoot a bunch of people
Day 2: trial
Day 3: dead
Wasn’t he in the military when he committed the crime, and the crime was committed on a military base?
Isn’t this a military trial (and if not, why not)?
When you join the military you give up certain rights, like the right to wear a beard at your military trial for murder.
Weed Whacker would be my choice, but only after he was waterboarded a few times to soften it up.
This is a military court, right? Seems like they wouldn’t be spooked by a beard.
Try the bearded basturd already and quit messin. If he is guilty, execute his bearded butt.
What the hail is the argument about? Be done with it already.
The problem is exactly what got him there in the first place... PC fear. The Army is afraid it’ll be un-PC to force shave this clown. They might be insulting Islam if they do.
Since when did the length of a beard delay justice in the United States? More likely army investigators found some very inconvenient facts when searching this 35 year old unmarried man’s computer and apartment It simply will not do for our new gay friendly military to have an open trial before the election.
Speechless. Is there any need for a trial? He was caught in the act and should have been executed right then.
I worked for awhile at an old school redline brig in Norfolk, Va. We hand a few that were AWOL and running with the antiwar crowd that didn't feel like shaving, Big mistake, they were clean shaved when we got done. ;^).
Nah, a weedwhacker will do
Keep the blades dull. It will take multiple passes to get it scaled down to the skin.
You’re exactly right! He shaved and had a regulation haircut while he was active duty. It’s my understanding that he is still receiving a paycheck from the military, so they need to force him to “earn” that paycheck by obeying orders.
A cigarette lighter works well and very quickly!
