45 families in America are waiting for justice after 13 people were shot dead and another 32 who were wounded in the mass shooting. Nidal Hasan opened fire in the army base Fort Hood on November 5, 2009 and he has never been brought to face trial.

He is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the shooting at the sprawling Central Texas army complix.
Nearly three years have passed and the reason its been so long coming to trial is that he is a Major in the army and they will not or cannot bring him to trial because he has grown a beard.
He has been ordered five times to shave of the beard so that the trial can begin and he refused and was fined $1000 each time, which i’m sure he does not care about as his salary of $72,000 a year is still being paid.
This story is so unbelievable that it is laughable, all they have to do is make a change to allow Muslims in the army to wear beards, go to trial, convict him and then rescind the law.
Even worse he wanted to enter a guilty plea to the murders, but Colonel Gregory Gross, who is hearing the case, said military law does not allow for guilty pleas in death penalty trials. Gross entered a not guilty plea instead.
There are 45 families waiting for justice and the longer this goes on it could mean he will never ever stand trial.
