] ] Turns out the Florida woman who is suing for the right to
] ] wear a Muslim headdress in a driver's license photograph
] ] has previously been subjected to an, um, unveiled
] ] government portrait. Following her 1997 conversion to
] ] Islam, Sultaana Freeman (formerly Sandra Keller) was
] ] arrested in Decatur, Illinois for battering a foster
] ] child. Freeman, 35, pleaded guilty in 1999 to felony
] ] aggravated battery and was sentenced to 18 months
] ] probation. As a result of the conviction, state officials
] ] removed two foster children from Freeman's care. The mug
] ] shot of the felonious Freeman (below left) was taken
] ] after her arrest in the Illinois case. Freeman returned
] ] to the dock this week--that's her testifying in the below
] ] right photo--to challenge Florida rules requiring
] ] prospective drivers to submit to unveiled photos for
] ] their licenses. Last year, Freeman sued the state after
] ] her license was revoked when she failed to allow
] ] officials to photograph her sans headdress. State
] ] officials contend that, in light of the September 11
] ] attacks, it is crucial that all motorists now be
] ] photographed in an unadorned state.
] My personal theory had been that she was horribly disfigured
] under that thing.. Missing half her face.. Burn scars..
] Michael Jackson shit.. Maybe looking just like The Joker,
] everywhere but the eyes. Maybe she could take a more American
] approach, get a balakava hood and a visor, and do the Storm
] Shadow GI Joe thing..
Get out your yearbook! Doesn't she look -exactly- like Jen Prendeville???????????
