Judge orders accused Texas base gunman to shave or be shaved - Yahoo! News
This bothers me to no end. I haven't been on here in a while, but this article had me fuming so I decided to get back in to the swing of writing posts again.
First of all, this monster is simply using the beard issue as a delay tactic. The Army has a strict grooming standard that can be enforced by the UCMJ. Use it and don't look back. The beard issue is getting in the way of of bringing this idiot to trial.
Second of all, get him in front of a military tribunal swiftly and begin the proceedings now. This man is living on borrowed time and the horror of the act that he committed is tragically relived by 13 families on a daily basis.
The very idea that someone in the medical community, and that too someone that people were supposed to turn to for help, would commit such an atrocity is vile and disgusting.
As a retired US Army officer of ethnic background, who is the son of a retired US Naval officer, who both served with distinction, we feel that this sorry excuse for a human being be brought to justice, but do so swiftly. I am not of the same faith and religion that this man supposedly belonged to, but if I was, I would be deeply embarrassed for my people and faith, and call upon those who are, to loudly and quite vocally press for justice in this matter.
