I’M BETTING SHE WAS AS MUCH A MUSLIM AS I AM A SCIENTOLOGIST

Something tells me she did this on purpose to sue the city:

A Muslim woman who was forced to removed her hijab by Californian police has been awarded $85,000 (£65,000).

Kirsty Powell filed a lawsuit against Long Beach City Council after she was made to take off her headscarf following her arrest in 2015.

Ms Powell’s repeated requests to be dealt with by a female officer were ignored, and she spent the night in custody without her headscarf.

The department has since changed its policy on religious headwear.

Female officers are now required to remove headscarves, away from male officers and inmates, and only “when necessary for officer safety”, Long Beach assistant city attorney Monte Machit told the Los Angeles Times.

However, Long Beach City Council agreed to settle the suit, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said.

CAIR, which launched legal action for Ms Powell, said “police officers forcibly removed her hijab in view of other male officers and dozens of inmates”.

She later “described the experience as deeply traumatizing,” CAIR said in a statement.

Local news website ABC7 reported she had three outstanding warrants against her name, which have since been cleared.

    Judging by the name she is as much Muslim as the name Lakesha would be
    given to a white woman.

    Then again, a lot of SJW and communists reject any religion, while still making
    common cause with radical Islam. I do not see a lot of white people flocking
    to Islam, yet they hate Christianity and Judaism with a purple passion because
    they share the Islamic view that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Most likely,
    she is a leftist looking to make a political point and a little cash to boot!
    I would put her to a test in court to see if she can even cite Muslim prayers.

    It says she had three outstanding warrants against her which have been cleared. She was given $85,000 and her warrants thrown out.
