CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - The St. Louis County jail has adopted a new policy that will let spare Muslim women from having religious headscarves removed in front of male inmates and staff.

A scarf can be used for a garrote, a club with an object (like soap) in it, or disassembled for a trip/fall trap.

There will be un-intended consequences in 3-2-1.

Whatever.

ROP females would DIE before they dishonored the family by letting the LAW get involved.

The stinking Muslims aren't going to have to destroy us - we're doing a damned good job of it ourselves.

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

They gave an inch to CAIR. The mile is right behind them.

I had no idea that there were so many of us of that very same religion. But you seem to be somewhat heretical. I require Tenessee whiskey. ;)

Texas and Tennessee have long ties, back to before when Texas was even a republic. I'll support my friends in Tennessee.

Hard to beat some good Jack Daniels, you old icon worshiper.

Sorta makes you wonder what the hell ROP women are doing in jail ... you would think that would be the most extreme embarrassment possible, unless it is the norm for ROP women to be convicts.

Religious wars are so easy to start.

At least you weren't a Commodore 64 advocate.

Commodore computers rock. Apple, Tandy, radioshack, and TI suck.

I too am a devotee of whisky - although of Irish extraction, I prefer the heavily peated single-malts of Scotland.

LOL! Back in the BBS days, I've seen flame wars on that very subject. And yes, actually, I was a 6502 processor advocate, and Commodore had the best structure available to use it.

Old days. Passionate wars, long dead and forgotten.

I see quite a few articles on ROP wimmenz getting arrested for one thing and then another.

Sometimes it's for cutting their daughter's head off for 'discracing' the family.

well, If I have to have an english-arse-kissing whiskey, I’ll make it a glenfiddich. As long as I don’t have to see any fat bastards while drinking it.

So these Missourians have less sense and courage than the French?
