Sure makes it easy to get away w/ crimes when your wearing a "legal" mask at all times in the name of your "religion". From all the current reports from the media, sounds like it's becoming all the rage. While there are those whom are not muslim that are wearing the burqa to commit crimes. there are also reports of those who are muslim doing the same.

Sounds like we have every right to feel threatened by this. I'm walking down the street w/ a ski mask on, I guarentee I'm gonna get some unwanted attention. BUT...I KNOW this, I EXPECT this....it's common sense. Why should you or any other muslim be any different? There is plenty of "land mass" that swings "muslim". Check it out.

I have the right to walk down the street or go to a public place w/ my family and not fear if that "person" (since your men have not problem wearing womens garb) walking toward me is concealing a weapon or a bomb under there clothing. Makes the playing field a little more even if we can see there face and identify them.

You feel awful free to roam about and do as you wish when you get to wear a mask everywhere you go dosn't it?

This IS America. You don't like the rules/regulations/laws here, then whey ARE you here? You want to live here, live by OUR laws. And no...it's NOT ok to wear your burqa in your drivers liscense photo. What good is the drivers liscense in that case? Sheez, our law makers and judges need to use there heads more. Are you kidding me?
