Stupidity of the Day

Posted by Bill Nance on December 17, 2008

From CNN:

Lisa Valentine, also known by her Islamic name, Miedah, 40, was arrested for ‘violating a court policy of no headgear’, Chris Womack, deputy chief of operations for the Douglasville Police Department said on Wednesday.

Valentine was in court with a nephew who was facing a traffic citation. She was wearing a hijab, the head covering worn by Muslim women. When she refused to remove it she was handcuffed and taken to Judge Keith Rollins’ chambers. He cited her for contempt and ordered her held in jail for 10 days.

This is a whole new kind of stupid. All I can say is, I hope Douglasville, GA is well insured, because they’re about to get socked with a multi-million dollar verdict.  I wonder if this redneck muni court judge would have also made this demand of someone wearing a yarmulke? Something tells me no.

Yet another piece of sheer brilliance from the State that brought you the dildo ban.

Note to self: move to GA, convert to Islam and have the wife get a speeding ticket. -We could use the money.

-Nuff said
