I don’t think that’s how it works. They tend to take you in and impound your car if you’re a criminal that drives on a suspended licenses. A suspended license is not an expired license, which might play out as you suggest.

I think taking a head-scarf is weird, but police live in terror every day, so may have been afraid it was being used to hide a weapon. I’ve been pretty surprised by how fearful the cops are in even my low-crime middle-class neighborhood.

I also don’t think people should get special privileges for being superstitious. Cops would make me take my hat off, why should it be any different for people who have superstition-driven headwear?

I think it would be easier to identify someone if they left their head-covering on if that is the way they usually appear.

But still, I think removing a head covering has a legitimate purpose for booking photos.

Whether or not the state has to provide a same-sex officer to take the photo is up for debate. If one is available, why not? But of course the resulting photo is going to be seen by men.

A white woman driving on a suspended license would get a finger shaken at her and told “You take care of that soon Ma’am! Have a nice day!”

This woman had warrants out for her arrest, though.

If I could avoid the minefield mix of likely biases and credible places to hide weapons in real felony circumstances I’d have more to say. Booking as we know can be a legitimate or abusive strip search moment.

There’s a substantial Muslam population in Dearborn Heights. I can’t believe there is no protocal for this.
