A case of mistaken identity

If this were a Perry Mason novel, Erle Stanley Gardner would have called it The Case of the Baffling Burka.

The Sydney Daily Telegraph uncovers the story:

Covered from head to toe in a burqa, with just a slit through which to see, a Muslim woman charged with making a false complaint to police now argues she has been a victim of mistaken identity.

Carnita Matthews was stopped by an Australian policeman, who attempted to give her a random Breathalyzer test. She accused him of racism and said he attempted to forcibly remove her veil. Unfortunately for Carnita, the judge didn’t believe a word she said, found her guilty of making a false accusation and sentenced her to six months in jail.

In case you’re wondering, that’s Carnita on the left. Or maybe that’s her on the right. Hmmm. We’re really not sure.

Muslim women: less likely to be told apart than people in China, GUARANTEED!

She should have emigrated to Canada instead – she would have the benefit of our gynecocratically-correct emasculated justice system.

Wow, that’s crazy but I, sadly, can’t say I’m surprised. Not quite that bad, in the US… yet…

What kind of self-respecting muslim has a name like carnita matthews? Someone should tell that dummy that you can’t half-ass islam. If you get into it, you are in for spousal rape, daily beatings, etc….She must have missed that memo!

Ole Carnita must have thought she was in the US. She not only would have walked but walked with at least a million dollars for the slam dunk lawsuit. Wow, Australia has at least one judge that is not an idiot, I wish we did.
