    New York City will have to pay out $180,000 to three Muslim women after forcing them to take off their hijabs for mugshots.

    Three lawsuits were settled Monday in Brooklyn federal court stemming from the NYPD policy of photographing people wearing religious head coverings, the New York Daily News reported. The three women settled for $60,000 each.

    I know for a fact all the old school New Yorkers moved out of New York and Brooklyn decades ago, just like other large cities. Many actually moved to the northern pacific coast to get away from the insane break down of their old traditional family life within the city. When rooted Italian families who have been there for a hundred years pack up and leave you know something is happening. It's a cesspool thanks to those non citizen politicians who have used the laws to rush in and grab up seats because of their silly voting laws. Most people there now are all foreigners anyway so they don't care long as they continue to get that free rent and groceries.

    You can't even carry a Boy Scout Knife in NYC without risking a Rikers Island tour.

    I haven't found too many good reasons for me to wear a hijab, but a $60,000 payoff is a good motivator.

    I'm considering one myself, I'm getting nowhere with the Russians.
