#1 Judge: Fort Hood suspect can be forcibly shaved08-22-2012, 01:41 PM
(AP) FORT HOOD, Texas - A military judge says he has the right to order an Army psychiatrist charged in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage to be forcibly shaved before his murder trial.
Col. Gregory Gross says other defendants previously have been ordered to shave. He filed a response Wednesday with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.
Last week that court delayed Maj. Nidal Hasan's upcoming court-martial while it considers his objection to being forcibly shaved.
The Army prohibits beards but Hasan has grown one to express his Muslim faith. Gross has banned Hasan from courtroom hearings, but said he will be forcibly shaved before the trial if he doesn't shave himself.
Hasan faces the death penalty if convicted in the attack on the Texas Army post that killed 13.Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

This decision should have taken five minutes and the trial should have proceeded as planned.

I have a brick they could shave him with, if you rub hard enough and long enough it will work.The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

This was a no brainer. He's still...as much as I hate to admit it...a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army...grooming standards still apply.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Do it the Muslim way -- shoot it off or blow it up. Or just go for broke and chop off his entire head.

Isn't there some way we can get the former East German women's swim team to cut his hair? Or some other group of scary, ugly women?
