I need everyone involved in this case to be required to explain the difference between Muslim and Sikh.

I'd put money down that none of them except Mr. Singh could do so.

We just need to air drop in some combat ACLU lawyers.  About 50 with the assistance of the Justice department's own 100 FBI ought to cause severe hemorrhoids for all involved semi-legal types with badges and robes.

Mississippi did not want to be part of that egregiously criminal cabal calling itself "The Union". Other responsible, sensible, mature States agreed.

The Union eventually crushed the armed resistance of those States that chose to separate themselves from the Criminal masters who call themselves a "Union". And now you'll get ObamaCare, mandatory payments to the government, crushing taxes, no real employment and total surveillance.

Yep, them ignorant swine down in Mississippi sure did not know what's best for them.

Why the fark would a Moslem even want to to to the shiathole known as Mizzzpeh, anyway? There's no sand, no camels, and the only rugs are ones with rebel flags in them that they sell on the side of the road at closed down gas stations. They don't eve have cabs, so where was this guy working?

Yeah I'm stuck on that too. I'm pretty sure "show me your hands" is something you have to do, but "give me that shiny thing that I want for my own collection" seems fishy.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it perfectly legal to have a knife on you almost anywhere outside the security screening gate at the airport and certain federal buildings.

I'm very curious to know what law this man was supposedly breaking by possessing a 3" long knife while driving his truck.
 
2013-09-28 06:55:12 PM
I saw a guy in Mississippi go to jail for wearing a hat (a trucker cap) in a court room. So yeah, I could see a judge being rude about it.

And what you want to give this guy a break just because he's not Muslim? Well that's called profiling Mother and I don't do it!

This, although knowing a knife is religious does not mean a cop cannot remove it from a suspect during a detention.

Depends on the state, how big the knife is, and how you carry the knife.

Inside a commercial truck you're going to be operating in a different world too.

Police the country over ask if you have weapons and may order you to hand them over during investigative detentions.

Refusing that lawful order is illegal, assuming the stop had reasonable suspicion.

Google 'terry frisk' if you want to know more.

I don't know the specifics of weigh station policy though, tbh.

The kirpan is a dagger, but more symbolic than anything else. Carrying one is about the equivalent of having a crucifix for a Catholic. All baptized Sikhs are required to have it at all times.

FYI, this person was just passing through Mississippi as a truck driver so it isn't as if he wanted to live there.  I can understand some confusion about the knife as generally speaking law enforcement can be a bit sensitive about weapons.  The judges behavior and statements while offensive stem from the general principle that many courts operate under a dress code and expect individuals to abide by it.  Lack of familiarity of the rules and the implied lack of respect for the court can irritate many judges.  I doubt that there is much experience with the Sikh culture by both law enforcement and the judge triggering this behavior.  I am not excusing it, but there is a potential reason for it, and these individuals need to be educated so these mistakes don't happen again (as I am sure they will once this controversy blows over).

Daedalus27: I can understand some confusion about the knife as generally speaking law enforcement can be a bit sensitive about weapons.


I can't. What part of the second amendment is unclear? All citizens have the right to bear arms. ARMS, not muskets, not pistols, not spear, not halberds, not knives, not whips, not crossbows: ARMS. Don't like that citizens can bear arms, officer? Don't live here. Emmigrate.

This one crosses the first amendment, too. I think they might ask a shik to leave the dagger behind in certain situation, but they'd never confiscate it because it's not a weapon, it's a religious artifact. They're tiny and can't cut for shiat. If a shik was to meet the president, his breath and handshake sweat would be a bigger potential threat to the POTUS than his knife; not that they'd let him keep it.

Its not as if there are no Sikhs in Mississippi. The kirpan thing I could maybe understand, but I would really expect the judge to be somewhat less ignorant.

Seems reasonable, except the Sikh religion is one of the worlds major religions. I'm no expert but as a reasonably educated and informed person I know things like Jews don't eat pork, Muslims don't drink alcohol and Sikhs wear a turban always. How can someone be a judge and not know the very basics of other cultures? How small a hick town are we talking about here? Is this a "Judge" who works pumping gas the other six days a week?

I have been assured by the Fark Law & Order types that it doesn't matter whether the order is lawful. You can protest in court after he bashes your head in for non-compliance. So when that cop tells you to clean his car with your tongue, you do it.
