“The arresting officerÂ exercised great sensitivity to the young lady, explaining the entire process and allowing her the opportunity to obtain the required bond,” he said. “She was investigated at the station and released in less than one hour. Â Booking procedures were followed as a photograph must be taken. This was explained to her in full and she appeared to be cooperative.(More from Barenaked)

Fantasy Based Policy Making & the Muslim Brotherhood
InÂ Human EventsÂ this morning I discuss the latest bit of fantasy-based policymaking coming from the capitals of the U.S. and Europe:
The suicidal side of the Western elites’ pervasive tendency toward fantasy-based policy making was on full display last week when the U.S. and the European Union both announced that they were opening formal contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood, a group dedicated, in its own words, to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house.” (MoreÂ Spencer)
This is a safety issue, but for Marisol Rodriguez-Colon and Hamas-linked CAIR, it’s another opportunity to reinforce the idea that Americans must change their behavior to accommodate Sharia norms. “Muslim woman says roller-skating rink discriminated against her,” by Jeane MacIntosh forÂ AP, November 25 (thanks toÂ Pamela Geller via JW):
A Muslim woman claims that a Connecticut roller-skating rink discriminated against her because it wouldn’t allow her to skate in her headscarf.Marisol Rodriguez-Colon, 40, said she was “mortified” when she and another female relative showed up for a niece’s birthday party at the Ron-A-Roll rink in Vernon and were barred at the door.
The venue’s rules, posted at the entrance, read: “No Hats. No Headwear. No Exceptions.”
“Revert” was asked to remove hijab at skating rink, sez she was “shocked”- so the Islamic grievance machine goes in top gear. Of course, if she had caused an accident (like here) she and her backers would have sued as well. Either which way we lose. Wanna bet that the skating ring backs off once the “racist-bigot-Islamophobic” accusations fly?
Woman Says Vernon Skating Rink’s Policy Discriminates Against Muslims
VERNON, Conn. (AP) â€” A Connecticut woman says a roller rink’s request that she either remove or cover her traditional Muslim head scarf was discriminatory.
“We couldn’t enter the facility because we had our scarves on,” said Rodriguez-Colon, who has worn the scarf, or hijab, for 16 years.
(Nothing “traditional” to see here. Just in-your-face Islamic supremacy. Islam tops your kafir laws, back off, infidel!)
