Man asks court to provide Arab clothing during Tampa trial
Tribune ^ | May 24, 2014 | Elaine Silvestrini

Posted on 05/31/2014 9:07:15 PM PDT by george76

Sami Osmakac is asking taxpayers to provide him traditional Arab clothing for him to wear when he goes on trial next week on charges he plotted a terrorist attack in Tampa.

Osmakac's lawyer told a federal magistrate this morning that Osmakac's family doesn't want to pay to clothe him in a robe garment called a thobe and a head wrap known as a keffiyeh...

The judge has previously given Osmakac permission not to stand when the judge or jury enters the courtroom because of his religious beliefs. Potential jurors will be asked whether they can still be fair to him, given that belief.

...

Osmakac plotted to blow up a popular Tampa night spot and then take hostages and demand the release of Islamic prisoners

the judge is an idiot...when you are in an American court, you follow the same rules as everyone else...you stand when you are supposed to...your religious beliefs have nothing to do with anything....and if you had a religion at all, you wouldn’t be blowing up innocent people.

The US government has forced the state of Oklahoma to overturn its anti-Sharia bill, after a Muslim man named Muneer Awad sued the state for supposed violations against “freedom of religion.”

CAIR also played a role ..

Why the burlap? Why not just the rope?

This is the rat that bit the Muslim that lay in the jail that Jack built.
Why doesn’t he just wrap himself in a bed sheet with a pillow case for a turban?

His religious beliefs also include a duty to kill non-believers. Will the judge toss the charges?

NO. He should go to trial wearing an uncomfortable, ill-fitting hot pink prison jumpsuit. His prison time should be spent doing working 16 hour days in a rendering plant, under the constant threat of being fed to starving hogs as capital punishment.

.
Judging by how we like to kiss Muslim @$$, judge and jury will probably have to stand any time when Osmakac opens his mouth and they will all adjourn for prayer time.

When I read this headline, I thought maybe he wanted the judge, jurors, attorneys, and everyone else in the courtroom dressed in bed sheets. I guess we’re still a few years away from that eventual reality.

The judge has previously given Osmakac permission not to stand when the judge or jury enters the courtroom because of his religious beliefs.

Amazing how these black burqa clad dhimmis waving a toy hammer love falling for the multi-culti BS from Islamics, who love turning trials into circuses, that would get any of us 18 months for contempt.

If he or his family can't or won't provide the costume, there's no reason to ding the taxpayers for one. Let his liar lawyer fork over, if he thinks it will help his client.

Has his attorney advised him that that is probably not going to help him? That’s probably how his family feels about it.

I can’t imagine these clothes are particularly expensive in any way. Can they really cost more than a man’s suit, which is what he’d wear otherwise?

If that what he wants to wear, in front of the jury, to look like some super-Muslim, I say, sure, why not?

Thereby approving of his contempt of the court. This judge should be removed from the bench.

It could be the Judge simply does not want to give the defense ANY reason to ask for a mistrial...

In a way I think it will not play very well with a jury...

The Muslim community in Tampa actually helped to get this guy...
