Military appeals court confirms Fort Hood jihadist can be forcibly shaved

Some justice in the ruling on what Malik Hasan can or cannot do during trial (via Jihad Watch):
A U.S. Army appeals court has ruled that the suspect in the Fort Hood shooting that killed 13 people can have his facial hair forcibly shaved off before his murder trial.

The U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals' opinion issued Thursday upheld the military trial judge's decision to order Maj. Nidal Hasan to appear in court clean shaven or be forcibly shaved.

It also ruled that Col. Gregory Gross, the judge, properly found that the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act doesn't give Hasan the right to have a beard while in uniform at trial.

Hasan has said the beard is an expression of his Muslim faith. His attorneys say they'll appeal the ruling.

Hasan faces the death penalty if convicted in the 2009 attack on the Texas Army.
How many times are his attorneys going to appeal these verdicts? It's clear that if they do, they're trying to delay the trial as much as possible in hopes that the public will forget all about this very abominable case. Furthermore, his act of murder was also an expression of his Muslim faith, so it's atrocious if he's allowed to get away with this obscenity. He cannot be permitted to show contempt for the law like this.

Update: the AP Wire reports that the victims want the bloodbath to be deemed exactly as what it was: a terrorist act. More on the subject at Hot Air.
