UK Police officers may be allowed to wear burkas while on duty


If you asked a liberal, they’d probably tell you that the planet’s number one symbol of oppression was the Confederate Flag.  Oh sure, they’d be tempted to go with the Bald Eagle, the Presidential Seal, or the National Anthem, but in the end, political correctness would probably win out.

In reality, the greatest symbol of oppression on planet Earth is the burka. …And, if you live in England, it may be coming to a police officer near you!

    I believe that it is not only a right, but it is actually encouraged to ask a police officer for photo ID. Encouraged because of the number of people who impersonate police officers.

    How does one identify a police office who may have abused her authority if that individual’s face is covered.

      It’s a feature, not a bug.

      Masked police officers, what a marvelous idea…

    If a woman in a burka tried to arrest me for something it would end well.

    • V10_Rob

      No no, play it cool, let it go to court.

      A burka officer’s testimony is only worth a small fraction of a male suspect’s testimony. You assert that you’ve done nothing wrong, and that the black sack with the badge is lying. The judge will be forced to dismiss all the charges, because anything less would be disrespectful to our diverse cultural mosaic.

    If you are a woman who thinks she is entitled to vote fuck you. Also, fuck you for not having cookies coming out of the oven right now.

    Behold your future suffragettes. Burkas are the logical end-game of your wicked movement.

    How is that going to work in a domestic assault situation? Poorly for the victim. Poorly for the officer who is at risk of an immobile officer whose own uniform is a detrimate. The ties work for uniforms are clip on, so officers aren’t choked out by suspects. Who is going to believe they are officers. Half the time, for ghost police cars, people don’t pull over until the officer gets aggressive about it.

      Yank once to the side on top of her head and that renders her effectively blind. Smart thinking by the establishment. I can almost hear the weeping now when the first Muslim female police officer is seriously maimed due to the clothing she’s wearing. At that point I will no longer have any shits to give.

    A policewoman wearing a boorkha would imply that she is either from a salifist or some other equally equivalent extremist muslim family and therefore has to be accompanied at all times by her husband or a blood relative as a chaperone/driver. Then there is the contradiction that such a person is by definition not to aid any infidel ruler in the pursuit of fellow muslims who commit crimes. So that would pretty much leave her narrow area of expertise as torturing confessions from infidel women who have somehow managed to offend allah by feeding ham sandwiches to their dogs in the presence of some child rapist at prayer.

      Yes. This is pure idiocy on so many levels.

    People may have a ‘right’ to give in to a pathological desire to cover their faces, but last I heard there was no right to be a police officer. It should be an absolute disqualification.
