Skip to comments.Muslim woman fights Boulder jail to keep hijab for mug shot
Posted on 12/04/2010 7:38:53 AM PST by bjorn14
A University of Colorado student who started wearing hijab after converting to Islam is fighting the Boulder County Jail's insistence that she remove her headscarf for a booking photo, saying that to do so would violate her religious beliefs.
Maria Hardman, 19, of Boulder, reported to the jail Wednesday to do the paperwork for a two-day work crew sentence that was supposed to be served this weekend. But when a jail detention officer told her to remove her headscarf for her mug shot, she balked.
"It's stated in the Koran in two or three places that believing women should wear the veil, except in the company of close family members," she said.
Hardman said she spent three hours at the jail while her lawyer tried to convince officials to let her take the picture with her scarf. She eventually was allowed to leave the jail without taking a picture at all. She said she was told she would be found in contempt of court for being out of compliance with her sentence.

Too bad, she got thrown in jail, she should be required to remove it !
Giving in to her demands would be giving in to Sharia law, which always starts with a Balkanizing, subset of judicial proceedings.
You come to this country, you live by our laws, not the child rapist’s.
They hate the West.
Why are they here ?
KICK THEM THE HELL OUT OF THE US ALREADY - the purpose of the photo is to physically ID them - a black ninja face mask is impossible to do such - why is this an issue???
Don’t want to take a govt ID photo “in the face”? Then GET OUT!!! and stay out!!!
Maybe I’m totally unsympathetic to these musscum but any woman wearing a hijab and winds up in jail should be required to remove their headrag or sit in solitary with minimal food until they comply.
They hate the West.
Why are they here ?”””””
They are infiltrating this country.
They are preparing to take us over completely.
America needs to wake up.
I believe that is why they make CATTLE PRODS???
They don’t have to strap on bombs any more. All they have to do is attack us at our weakest spot - the ultra-liberal courts. They will have whatever they want, and will just waltz in and impose their savage laws on normal people.
I read the entire article and laughed when I read she was locked up for a D.U.I. (she states she was given alcohol unknowingly). Yeah, right. So, she liked to drink alcohol, drive a scooter drunk but doesn’t want to play by the rules that everyone else has to. Tough! If she was following Islam, she wouldn’t have been at a party without a brother/male cousin (if at all) and wouldn’t have been allowed to drive. Pick something... either you want the freedom the rest of us enjoy (even being stupid) or you want to cling to the Koran. (IMHO) Just a thought.
She KNEW she was intoxicated, yet she chose to drive...um..guilty. Take off the hat lady.
Going to jail should be a very unpleasant experience. Being forced to remove her hood may be the Arab moon god’s way of telling her to stop breaking laws.
Pull that f’ing rag off her head and take the picture.
The latest installment of “What’s In / What’s Out”.
Pornoscanners for all in airports are okay and uncovered portraits for Muslim women are not okay.
4th Amendment: OUT / Sharia Law: IN.
Our Country, our laws. Not Sharia. Don’t like it, leave.
Look what just happened in OK, of all places.
It’s called Lawfare.
If we were “her people”, we’d just bury her in the ground up to her shoulders and stone her to death for public intoxication and being in public without a male relative present. So, if she wants Islamic law, then let’s give it to her.
“They hate the West.
Why are they here ?”
To reap the bounty of a free Christian society.
A largesse utterly impossible under the pathology known as Islam.
I might add that she is now a criminal and
that really limits her rights and options.
Slap her in jail and keep her there until
she complies with the sentence given her.
Interpretation differences among Islamic zombies? Maria might need to consult with her local Imam for further indoctrination.
Life, liberty and the pursuit and destruction of totalitarians.
How about we circumcise her, the Muslim way, and then stone her to death? Then there won’t be an issue of the headgear.
She’s a white University of Colorado liberal trustafarian who apparently thinks drinking, driving and makeup are okay for muslim women. Probably has dredlocks under the hijab.
It is a great day for a stoning.
LOL! She blew a .19 and is claiming she “didn’t know” she was drinking alcohol.
She wasn’t just over the limit, she blew .19. That’s pretty much muhammad-faced drunk. Assuming she’s about 110 lbs, she would still have had about 5 drinks.
She is only 19 and was driving while seriously intoxicated. She’s lucky she isn’t facing 6 months jail rather than a slap on the wrist.
She should also be happy to be living and uninjured.
Agreed, take off the scarf. Following instructions in jail isn’t optional.
She’s a kook.
Just my oinion of course.
To destroy what they hate.
but you already knew that didncha?
OK, lemme see if I got this straight.
She broke the law and committed a crime for which she needed to be booked and was sentenced by the court for punishment.
And removing the veil is against her religion?
This could only make sense to a proselyte of the pedophile pirate, rapist, slaver, mass-murderer, liar, thief, warlord, torturer, cruel tyrant and all-around genocidal savage, Mohammed.
If she got in a wreck would she allow the doctors to take off her rag?
Pray for America
Make her give the appropriate Koran references to back up her assertions. If other devout, muslim women shed their head covering it means that the Koran allows it.
Each of us is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts.

“They hate the West.
Why are they here?”
The answer should be obvious.
They have come “here” to destroy and conquer The West.
And the way things are going, who’s winning?
This entire article is a case-in-point.
If we of “The West” were intent on winning, when that woman exclaimed she would not remove her headscarf for the booking photo, it would have promptly BEEN REMOVED for her, and then the picture taken as it is for everyone else.
From the article (quote):
“Hardman said she spent three hours at the jail while her lawyer tried to convince officials to let her take the picture with her scarf. She eventually was allowed to leave the jail without taking a picture at all. She said she was told she would be found in contempt of court for being out of compliance with her sentence.”
Again I will ask, seriously:
Since she looks like an ango saxon convert she won’t be a real moslem until her future moslem spouse gives her a black eye or whatever. Currently, she is a poser looking for attention and is getting her moneys worth.
I hope she finds and marries a Muslim man who follows Sharia. See how fast she would run back to mommy and daddy.
If what she had on her head in the video is what she had on in the jail, I don’t see any reason for it to be removed. Her face is plainly visible.
However, I would THROW her in jail (and throw away the key)for talking the way she does....every sentence is a question??? Like - you know what I mean? Like - you know what I’m saying? Crikey!
Muslims have gone on record as saying there is nothing in the Koran that requires Muslim women to cover up - only a requirement to be modest in dress. I understand they have multiple cultures that interpret the Koran in hundreds of different ways and they are trying to make everyone adopt a culture that is not standard throughout.
You know what I’m saying??????? Her parents are being taken if they are paying for this dope’s education! But perhaps they live in Boulder and therefore, have the $$$$ to throw away.
Just throw it on the floor and tear that bag off it’s head.
“”Make her give the appropriate Koran references to back up her assertions””
I would love to see them....See my last post - supposedly not required at all by the Koran but by the many different cultures in that evil belief system. It cannot be called a religion.
Yep! She is pretty stupid for embracing the tenets of this cult!
You just know shes going to eat that kitten.
If a non-muslim tried this, three big deputies would hold them down and take their picture along with any ancillary charges for resisting authority.
What better way to rebel against mommy, daddy, American tradition and Christianity? Join up with the cult that America is at war with.....
She’s just a screwed up, naughtly girl who needs to be very careful about what she’s doing. Anything for attention.
They keep pushing the envelope of “tolerance” of Islam. They may find that pushing that envelope is like tightening bolts. You can keep on tightening right up to the point that it snaps off, but once it does you can’t just back it off a little and quit there.
Sounds like the way people raise their rebellious kids ...say No, No, No, then let them go anyway..
I’ve seen generic american women marry moslem immigrants and stick it out to the bitter end - they had no where to go after the third child. Too bad there’s no one to tell them it’s not a good idea.
