        They forced him to wear a uniform in court? Why do that when they let him grow a beard. The beard is against military regulations, so why not let him go all the way in defying military regulations. And I hope he has to pay the government back for the education and training that he received. I'll be so glad when it is over and they hang him high-- that is old Texas justice.

        Refusing to wear the military uniform is just another way to get this thing delayed. Personally he doesnt deserve to wear the military uniform. He is a disgrace to the U.S. military and the people of the U.S. He has already admitted his guilt so why the trial? Just execute him already. Things in the justice sytem need to change. Too many criminals who have too many rights! I cant even understand why anyone in their right mind would come forward to help him represent his case. People who want to defend him are either looking for plublicity or they are against the U.S! Which one is it? I am tired of people stating "things are not right down there at Fort Hood". This guy killed 13 people on post and admits it and then tries to defend himself saying he was defending the Taliban!!!!!!!!! Are you kidding me????????With him being U.S. military, that is TREASON! Penalty for treason is death.
