Judge Gross has ordered Hasan to be shaved.
Hasan now has the chance to appeal with the Army Court of Criminal Appeals.
The judge also said no more pretrial hearings will be held until the issue is resolved.
(KCEN) -- In the most recent pre-trial hearing in the case of accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan, the accused was allowed to remain in the courtroom, despite him still not being clean-shaven.
In previous hearings, Hasan has been found in contempt, fined and removed from the court to watch proceedings via video because his beard violates Army standards.
So far today, he has been allowed to remain in the room.
Judge Gross has heard evidence as to whether Hasan's beard is a genuine expression of his Muslim faith or not.
The government is arguing that he is using the beard to try to disguise himself so that he cannot be recognized in court.
The defense disagrees, saying Hasan has already made it clear he wants to plead guilty to the charges so there is no reason for him to disguise himself.

So ... apply a generous portion of some pork byproduct biofuel shaving cream ... and get'er done!
lemme do it.
Look, this shaving game has been going on a long time! If it wasn’t a Moslem being tried in military court, it would have been done a long time ago. Duh... the asylum of our era.
Just put a bullet in the guy and be done with it!
took him long enough..
Rip out his beard one whisker at a time.
It’ll soon be the end of Daylight Shaving Time...
He’ll claim he’s been subjected to torture.
Nah. Too much effort.
Just burn the whole thing off at once.
Just for fun they should shave his eyebrows off.
Muslim? What Muslim?
cut throat razor I ope they use and I’ll gladly do it
Yer such a plucker!
Just hang the SOB and be done with it.
by Jack the Ripper.
As long as this has been drawn out, I’d say use a C130 w/ cover and drop him out over Mecca with a couple of Texas feral hogs.
Give him the option of doing it himself or being held down by a half dozen brawny soldiers and let one of them do it. With a straight razor.
Who wants pie?
Just rub aftershave on his beard and touch a match to it
-Remember the old Burkha Shave signs along the roads?
It’s about time. Now let’s get on with the trial, probable conviction and hopefull execution.
Oops I mean a workplace violence perp. /s
The volunteers lining up to “help” shave the bass turd will be quite long. Straight razor anyone?
He is still a field grade officer in the US Army and Army regulations do not allow beards. PERIOD. He should not be able to disobey orders and regulations any more than the greenest private who just arrived at basic training.
Time for a Shave!
Straight edge? Flames? Ha!!! You fellows have never experienced waxing!
We sure do go out of our way to accommodate this Islamic terrorist. Give him a choice, have it shaved, pulled out, or burned off.
I think it should be televised.
I was thinking about using a mound of fire ants, some type of restraint keeping him spread eagle and the hot Mississippi sun on a day when the humidty is as high as the temperature.
If that’s cruel, his scrotum could be nailed to a shed wall before it’s set on fire. If we have to be nice, we could always leave a can lid within reach.
Here’s how they can recoup all of the expenses of this trial. Have an auction for $100 a ticket with the winner getting to shave him.
Millions would pour in.
General Patton would have marched in and shaved him months ago!
Nah, Patton would have just shot the SOB.
after covering his with pig fat, of course.
Look, this shaving game has been going on a long time.....
I dont understand why it took so long. He was a member of the military and clean shaven. Now its a religious thing.
fatwa city in the judges future...
He's gonna need to be clean shaved EVERY day he is in court.
Either he cooperates, they knock him out, or (my preference) 6 soldiers with a dull bayonet do the job.
Which option? Given his lack of cooperation to date, option one is out. I doubt you can legally drug a guy every day for months to shave him, so it looks to me like option 3 will doubtlessly be chosen.
I’ve pulled out my beard hair, one whisker at a time. That’s not so bad.
However, grabbing a bunch at once is a different story.
Yes, perhaps that would be better.
I believe that it’s likely that the whole “beard” thing is being used to put the trial off as long as possible. Simply put, they just don’t want to face it.
Hasan should understand that the Army is like Islam. Once you get in, you are subject to its rules. However, unlike Islam, it is possible to get an honorable discharge from the Army.
Hasan made the deal when he joined. He’s got to abide by its terms. We shouldn’t let him scream “Alluah Akbar” and change his mind.
It’s about time!
He’s got those eyes...
Electrolysis is my suggestion. Relatively painful if done by and amateur and semi-permanent.
How about ordering him to be executed?. That’s the order that needs to be given.
Am I missing a beard?
