Accused Fort Hood Shooter Could Be Forcibly Shaved

August 22, 2012  | 

Fort Hood shooting suspect Maj. Nidal Hasan should be forcibly shaved of his beard before his trial begins to avoid a "distracting and disruptive sideshow" that is "flagrantly disrespecting the Army," military prosecutors said Wednesday.

Military prosecutors, in a response to a court of appeals ruling staying Hasan's court martial, argue that Hasan's refusal to follow orders to shave is not a question of religious freedom, but of decorum and authority.

"This is a direct challenge to the military judge's authority," prosecutors said in court documents. "…The military has long recognized the authority of the court martial to compel an accused to appear in the proper uniform to maintain the decorum of the court."

Fuc- this POS, let him stay looking like a terrorist that he is and just execute him. It has been way too long, the Army will have to take the heat for this AH has given them and move forward. EXECUTE THIS POS.

Insert "piece" in above to make sense

Forcibly shaved? He should of been forcibly executed a long time ago. Why is this case taking so long? The only debate should be method of execution. I wonder if we have to respect his religious rights and drop his corpse off in the ocean so his bones can float to the bottom of the sea with bin ladens?

In the case of these active-shooter/terrorists, you follow the "Bin Laden Rule," don't take them alive - problem solved.

Tom ret: Great idea!! A large hambone shoved up his ass and thrown to the dogs would be better! A member of the Armed Forces, if convicted of capital murder, would be executed in time of war. We are at war. The Army has dragged its' heels long enough, erase this piece of shit now.
