Los Angeles - A Muslim woman arrested for riding a commuter train without a valid ticket has filed a federal lawsuit in the United States, claiming her religious freedom was violated when she was forced to remove her headscarf when she was taken to jail.
Jameelah Medina also said she was intimidated by a deputy who accused her of being a terrorist and called Islam an "evil" religion, according to the suit filed on Wednesday in US District Court by the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California.

Let’s get the deputy’s name and petition the department to promote this person at once.
What's "BO" btw?
More info on the attorney who filed the suit:
ACLU Branches Out
The ACLU of Southern Californias long-in-the-works plan to open a branch office in Orange County took a big step this month with the hiring of Hector Villagra as director of that office, and Belinda Escobosa Helzer as staff attorney.
Villagra comes to us after serving four years as the regional counsel for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF), where he supervised legal activities for California, Arizona and Nevada. His career includes clerking for Stephen J. Reinhardt of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and Chief Justice Robert N. Wilentz of the New Jersey Supreme Court. He is admitted to several bars, including the California Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, and the U.S. District Court, Central District California.
“What’s “BO” btw?”
Bill O’reilly who considers FR a hate site.
Well, that’s interesting. I thought he was one of us.
Impose a Sharia punishment on her for stealing. /sarc
So what do you do? cut off her hand?
That is a traditional punishment for stealing
I don't care what anybody says about islam and especially don't care what o'reily thinks about F.R., he's a "pin head"
Islam is a murderous cult and their followers would chop off grabeard58s head along with driftdriver's", LouAvul's and Bill Oreily's if they had the chance.
I don’t think they see colors either.
My religion allows it’s members to do whatever they like without penalty. Now where is the nearest bank?
With your sense of humor you have to be a Democrat.
Scroll down a little and click on the video. I post you decide.
I think there's a joke in here somewhere....
BO is an oaf. Islam is a murderous cult. They’d have to get past my .45 hollow points to cut my head off though.
I have met many poor lawyers, but I have never met a poor lawyer..... ;>)
I got a 404 error message.
“With your sense of humor you have to be a Democrat.”
Not a democrat. I just don’t believe in using dehumanizing statements to further a cause. That only makes people turn away from you and is similiar to what our enemy does.
Murdering muslims are the enemy because they murder, not because of their race, education or anything else.
And if thats the best joke you have then you must be a liberal.
Probably because I screwed up and put quotes around the link.
