Fort Hood massacre suspect can be forcibly shaved, judge says
ap ^ | August 22, 2012

Posted on 08/23/2012 8:03:05 AM PDT by george76

A judge has the right to order an Army psychiatrist charged in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage to be forcibly shaved of his beard 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 Muslim's religious freedoms and said it is similar to "and no more invasive than" a judge's right to restrain a defendant who is disruptive during a court-martial.

"Forced shaving is not a novel concept in the military,"

I don’t think this lowlife was drafted into the ALL VOLUNTEER Army. And I think the reg was in place before his sorry self signed on, so shave away

This is ridiculous. Shave him, or don’t ... but get him convicted and sentenced.

Allowing a terrorist to delay trial like this, and giving him further platform to speak, is an altogether lousy idea. I don’t care about his beard. Try, convict, execute. The sooner the better.

Is there anyone who really cares if he has a beard? Get the circus going. Time to bring him to trial, hear the evidence, find him guilty, and then.......feed him to the hogs.

Speaking of delays, it’s taken almost three years to get to this point in his case.

I wonder why it takes so long to get a trial.

Tell him his whole head is going to be shaved off and a pack of pork rinds will be jammed down his neck. But also inform him he can run away and he’ll have a two-minute head-start.

Oh, wait... how unfortunate for him.. he can’t. Well, let the “shaving” begin.

——is there anyone who really cares if he has a beard?-——

I do.

The beard is a symbol that says the accused is not in the United States Army and is in fact an Islamic radical unjustly being put on trial. The growing of the beard is a display of disdain for the military and to the oath the officer swore on joining.

The officer on trial must be present in proper uniform and acting in the manner of an officer and a gentleman.

I agree wholeheartedly, but let's get this going. Shave him and haul him into court instead of an endless delay. Where was his beard before the shooting? This is all political theater on his part to gain publicity.

I don’t get the BFD about all this....as far as I know, the man is still an active duty member of the US Army, and beards are NOT allowed. Period.

If the judge allows the active duty service member to appear in his court NOT in accordance with the military standards that would be allowing Hasan to give the big middle finger to the Army. Muslims in the Army do NOT have a separate dress/appearance code.

End of story.

For the last few years of his life I took care of my Dad,who was in failing health.The first time I shaved him (which was the first time I had ever shaved another person) he said to me,in that quick whited way of his (he had a great sense of humor) "I'm not gonna let you do *that* again"."Why",I asked."Because I'm afraid you'll cut my throat".

I'm more than willing to shave the Major,and I won't be *nearly* as careful as I was with my Dad.

After shaving him they should also use permanent laser hair removal over his entire beard area. Since they may have to sedate him to shave him, this would be an added bonus.

And then, after he is back in court clean shaven, the judge can order him to not grow his beard back, and his chin will obey the court order, despite his best efforts to not shave.

can somebody please explain to me why this c***S***** isnt dead yet ???

or why a judge had to waste time to make this ruling...

afterall, mo-ham-head hasan was a military officer at the moment he went jihadi, and was probably clean shaved, willingly so, at that moment, which didnt interfere with his *religion* up to that point...

UNLESS his goat-humper moon-cult only truly exists in jihad ??? and at that moment is where it truly becomes a religion...

To heck with that.
Laser him so that he CAN’T grow a beard any more. Fixes the issue and screws with his Moslem-ness (Moslems are supposed to have “neatly trimmed beards” to distinguish themselves from “Franks” and Jews.)

I've been saying it for months around here (and by "here" I mean Ft. Hood)...forget his beard; this terrorist's entire head needs to go. He knew the dress/grooming code when he joined the military and when he committed multiple acts of islamomurder. "Suddenly" he needs a beard for religious purposes? Tough crap. We are approaching the three year anniversary of his murders...let's give his victims justice and get this show on the road already!

I’m trying to imagine our enemies — any of them, at any point in history — declining to act against one of US because of something so important as..... facial hair.

We make ourselves laughingstocks with this kind of insanity. Haul the bassturd in, add “not shaved” to the list of charges, and GET THE HELL ON WITH THE TRIAL!!!!!!!!
