FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -- The Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage will be allowed to keep his beard during his military trial.

The new judge overseeing Maj. Nidal Hasan's case told Hasan during a Tuesday hearing that the beard is a violation of Army regulations.

Once again, the gutless wonders who “govern” us go whimpering into that good night.

Herein lies the problem: The murderer is accorded every right and courtesy. We, the totally innocent citizens of the United States are going to be punished for the murders he committed and all the others committed with a firearm.

Apparently, an unspoken, unwritten law has been invoked that says that doers of evil deeds must be protected and that society somehow must be responsible for bad events.

We who have done NOTHING wrong will have our weapons confiscated or the use of them severely restricted.

I am so sorry that the men and women at Ft. Hood were murdered or harmed at all, and I am equally regretful that the children and their teachers were killed in Connecticut. Please note, though, that I would not have dreamed of harming a hair on their heads. On the contrary, I like to think that I would have defended them to my own death.

Why, then, is my country abrogating my right to keep and bear arms?

Perhaps this is not about the slaughter of innocents. Perhaps this is about establishing a new order.

Sorry to say, you are probably right.

Maybe the Ambassador 9/11 case was supposed to end they give us the 4 guys back and you get the shrink?

Course the Troglodytes reverted to normal and as the Scorpion said “I am a Scorpion. That is what we do”.

They definitely don’t want Hillary (probably afraid BO would reneg on the deal) but Maybe a swap for Kerry and the shrink _Of course that would require Kerry to go into a danger zone and you never know when Barry might uncut the deal anyway....

Pretty soon the armed forces will just look like the NFL. Long hair, beards(on women) and all the rest.

I think it fine for him to keep his beard just so long as it is separated from his neck and shoulders!

On the other hand, cleaned up, shaved, and made to look like a normal civilized person sanitizes him. He can be made to look like the victim. With the beard, he looks like the degenerate muslim scum bag that he is. Much harder to feel any sympathy for this POS.

A new judge indicated Tuesday that she won't force him to shave.

She??

Of course she won't force what is right...It might offend him....And if he wants his pet goat, religious trinkets, and a wide screen TV to monitor Al Jazeera, give it to him.

Anything to support those that hate America, the lawless, the deviates etc., is just fine..No problem...If the rest of you don't like it, it's just too damn bad.

The beard should have never been an issue. Judge should have told him jurors might have a negative opinion about it, but it is his choice.

If the first judge had ignored it, Hassan would have been convicted by now.

The ruling said Col. Gregory Gross did not appear impartial while presiding over Hasan’s case and that the command - not a judge - is responsible for enforcing military grooming standards.

#######

So they tossed the Col. because he said Hasan had to shave per military law. Now it’s NOT up to a judge to enforce military standards so why have a judge and a military court if nobody is allowed to enforce the rules except the Command which means the CIC. Obama.
