NOTE: Yesterday afternoon and evening, I spent the afternoon and evening hooked up to wires and sensors courtesy of my doctor. One of my temporary appendages was a mask over my nose which prevented me from putting on my glasses and seeing a computer screen (my daughter said I looked like the guy from Friday the 13th). Not wanting to leave my readers with only two articles to read on a week day, I made a desperate phone call to my friend Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs, and asked her to cross post one of her great articles, which she did gladly.  The below is her fine work, and I just wanted to thank her publicly for “being there” when I needed her.  Thank you Pamela. After you read the article below, Please Visit her site ATLAS SHRUGS You will not be disappointed.

PC police force issues its WPCs with Muslim headscarves complete with badge for mosque visits

Women police officers are being issued with headscarves to wear when they visit a mosque.

There are two versions – one matches the black of a police officer’s uniform, while another goes with the blue uniforms worn by community support officers.

The headscarves are being given out by Avon and Somerset Police, and have the force’s emblem sewn on.

They have already been given to seven officers, including Assistant Chief Constable Jackie Roberts, and eight community support officers who work with Muslim groups in the area.
