Judge Orders Accused Fort Hood Shooter Hasan to be Shaved
KCEN-TV News ^ | September 5, 2012

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.

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.

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.

As another poster remarked; wax. And not just his beard, but every square inch of his body. Including eye lashes, brows, toes, everything.
Make him smooth and pink, just like the little piggys they so detest.

You're right of course and the retired field grader in me agrees.

Still, another part of me would love to put that piece of human debris on the stand in his full jihadi regalia and dare the administration to continue calling it workplace violence.

The prosecution is also saying that Hasan is using his beard in an attempt to affiliate himself with the Mujahideen, a group of Muslims who struggle in the path of God.

Idiotic sentence. Stuggles IN the path? WTH? And mooselimes don't worship God....not the one true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They worship a crazed, militant pedophile who hallucinated in a cave.
