Burka Riots in France and Jail Time

Hat tip Gates of Vienna and Sassy for translation

Last month, a Muslim woman in Toulouse, France, who was wearing a burka (in violation of French law) resisted police who ordered her to remove her veil for identification purposes. Police were confronted not only with the woman resisting and shouting at them, but with a mob which came to her aid. The incident led to five nights of riots and the usual burned out cars.

The woman has been sentenced to six months in prison, of which she will serve three months.

"Heigh ho, Heigh ho
It's off to jail I go"

Whatever one thinks of a law banning burkas, this woman resisted police and incited a riot. For that, she should, indeed, go to jail.
