Halloween Jihad Reminder: Be Prepared

Think this doctored photo is funny? Actually, that's good. Some of these 'women' appear stout and brawny enough in the Olympic sense to be dangerous in a dark alley.

Nevertheless, we must be prepared to do our duty this Halloween.

Islamic radicals use masks regularly to avoid photographic and eye-witness identification during their dastardly, terrorist activities. Domestic felons, too, sometimes use masks to avoid identification during high-profile, criminal activities.

In many jurisdictions of the United States (thanks largely to KKK history) wearing a mask during the commission of a crime is itself a punishable offense. Also, it may be criminal to wear a mask at public assemblies and demonstrations. In Virginia, for example, it is illegal for those over sixteen years of age to wear a mask in a public place.
[2] In some states, it is only illegal to wear a mask if there is intent to commit an illegal act.[3]

Check out your local jurisdiction to be prepared for Halloween and similar chaos. Head scarves (hijabs) such as those pictured, fit the
definition of mask: a piece of material or kit worn on the face. Masks have been used since antiquity for both ceremonial and practical purposes.

Sample Ordinance:

CONCEALING IDENTITY IN PUBLIC PROHIBITED Wearing hoods which conceal the identity by hiding the face or masks in a public place is hereby prohibited. No person shall, while wearing any hood which conceals the identity by hiding the face, mask or device whereby a substantial portion of the face is hidden or covered so as to conceal the identity of the wearer, enter, be or appear in any public place within the City.
