is this the page where i saw police women in hijabs and niqabs? i think police in hijabs look like crossing guards on a rainy day, doesn't look respectful as a police officer should looks stupid, police shouldn't be wearing scarves on their heads for any reason! you think that is bonding with muslims? what your'e really doing is alienating the very people you should be protecting your fellow country men,can you imagine an officer of the law wearing a hijab arresting a non muslim this is insane, attention all countries if your'e not a muslim don't dress like a muslim there is no reason whatsoever to do this,youre being made fools of and we are trying to ban some muslim attire so what nuts in public service are putting these garments on the police could you be a little more submissive by wearing muslim clothes while trying to uphold the law, your'e not protecting us you're subjecting us to the very thing we are trying to ban,even the muslims think you look stupid, so stop your silly smiles "posing" like posers in muslim clothes, the muslims will not let you into their closed off private communities no matter how submissive you act,your supervisors are a disgrace,talk about aiding and abetting,and why are the police wearing religious clothes,you people are in la la land and if you want respect and support from your country stop behaving like idiots your p.c., will cause big problems ,dressing in hijabs and "posing 'niqabs for pictures makes you look so foolish if you're not converting to islam, there is absolutely,positively no reason to play dress up,i'd like to know who's idea this is and why you should so disrespect the police department showing them wearing clothes that have NOTHING to do with police work, now thats something that should really be against the law,we want a police department we can look up to not one that we have to say i cannot,cannot believe what they are doing'!
