6TH Grader Assaulted For Wearing a Scarf

I have little girls...who don't wear the hijab yet (oldest is 9). But this is one reason I don't plan to send them to public school:


The boy was taken from the school by officers from the North Shore’s 120th Precinct and charged with "harassing the girl, beating her, throwing her to the ground, asking if she is Muslim and trying to pull off her scarf," the law enforcement source said. 
The third-degree assault charge is an A-misdemeanor but the hate crime aspect bumps it up to an E-felony, the source said.

I do think it would be really a bad idea to ruin a kids life by making this a felony. Kids are stupid. They do this stuff in school. The misdemeanor seems like punishment enough.

  3. I'm Christian and say all people should have the right to practice their faith with out abuse of any form. Women wearing the hijab look feminine and classy but I dislike the burka. I think it is a form of abuse. I like to appreciate the Middle Eastern woman's attractiveness and this complimentary. God bless you all.
