my first license pic when I was 16, they actually let me take it with my hat on. I passed my permit test and then took a pic and then realized after I had the hat on. kinda funny cuz I wore my hat down with a very curved brim so you could barely see my eyes :)

lol. good comparison, and completely analogous. it's the cost of living in this country, just as the license is the cost of driving.

Why the hell did they allow her to keep her face covered and issue her a drivers license in the first place back in 2001? Thats ridiculous.

And good luck to her getting into a bar.

No wait...guess her religious beliefs preclude that from happening.  ;)

"Freeman claims her religious beliefs require her to keep her head and face covered out of modesty and that her faith prohibits her face from being photographed."

This is bullsh!t, nowhere in the qur'an does it say that women have to cover their heads.

Maybe she would like to try and get a drivers license in Saudi Arabia....would probably shoot her for trying to

Interesting - I didn't know that. It's probably a guy under the veil for all we know.

I'm sure they will bring that into play for state's case.


She is just a con artist trying to manipulate the system.

A driver's license is a form of identification and how is anyone supposed to identify you when your drivers license picture is you with a veil on?

Edit: Damn you guys are too fast.
Sorry ma'am these eyes on this picture do not look like your set of eyes. Are you wearing contacts? Have you been using visine? Sorry miss but you are going to have to come down town...

Meanwhile at the jail cell she is placed in a line up along with others in a veil. She is positively id'ed and gets tried and convicted of murder due to the id and eyewitness testimony of some white chick in a veil knocking over a 7-11. she gets the gas 10 years later...

What have we learned today kiddos?
[All together]Take off the frcking veil

You are aware that this happened at the DMV aren't you

I can understand her religious stance, but as someone stated, driving is a privilege, not a right. You must have your face revealed not just for the officers protection, but also your own since it is used to identify you when using a CC!

Does it matter the photo has her with the veil? She is going to wear it all the time so when she has to show the license she might not be recognized without the veil on. The picture should match her appearance in public. I wear glasses and when I took my DMV picture they made me remove them, now anytime I show my ID I get "This doesn't look like you..." then they start questioning me. If she takes a photo without the veil, then continues to wear it and then gets pulled over the cop is going to ask her to remove the veil to confirm identity and thats another mess.

Using your logic, if she wears the veil in the photo and gets pulled over, how does the police officer know the person on the driver's license is her?

It may be moronic, but not as bad as someone trying to sue the weather office for a wrongful weather prediction which they think hurt their business because people didn't visit. It turned out to be a sunny day, but was predicted wet, so people stayed at home.

His reasons for suing were purely greed, at least this woman has some religious basis for her actions, even though they are a little stupid as well. (the actions, not the religious beliefs)
