Back in November, I reported on a burqa'ed Muslima who was charged with making a false complaint that used the Muslim victimhood card in her defense -- "All cops are racist" -- what race? Covered from head to toe in a burqa, with just a slit through which to see, the Muslima charged with making a false complaint to police then claimed that she had been a victim of mistaken identity.
She was found guilty, appealed and ....won. Because who really knows who was under that burqa? Only allah can say foe shiz. BTW, the full face veil is not a religious mandate. Muhammad said cover all but the face and hands, so wearing a full face veil is a political statement, and it should be illegal.
We have seen the weaponizing of the veil and the use of the veil to commit crimes, escape detection, kidnap and rape young girls and keep them hidden; the Elizabeth Smart case should be the catalyst for such legislation.
The judge saw through the claim of Carnita Matthews, a 46-year-old mother of seven. Magistrate Robert Rabbidge described her crime as "deliberate, malicious and ruthless. There is not a shadow of doubt in my mind, beyond a reasonable doubt, that she knew that the complaint she was making was false," he told Campbelltown Local Court back in November.
"You look at me and see me wearing this and you couldn't handle it. All cops are racist," she says.
The magistrate rejected her lawyer's argument that the prosecution could not prove it was Matthews herself who made the complaint and signed the declaration.
But police prosecutor sergeant Lisa McEvoy said there was no doubt.
"Her signature on that affidavit coupled with the signature on her driver's licence is exactly the same," she told the court.
The burqa'ed civilizational jihadist appealed -- and won, remaining inside her cloth coffin.

THE Muslim woman accused of lying about police trying to tear her burqa off has avoided jail - because her identity could not be proven.
Carnita Matthews, 47, from Woodbine, in Sydney's southwest, had been sentenced to six months in jail for making a deliberately false statement that a policeman tried to forcibly remove her burqa because he was a racist.
But judge Clive Jeffreys said yesterday he was not satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that it was Mrs Matthews who made the racism accusation because the person who complained to police was wearing a burqa at the time.
The absurdity of the law is that, to reach the level of proof of identity to make the case, Mrs Matthews would have been required to identify herself by lifting her burqa at the police station - what started the uproar in the first place.
More than a dozen Muslim supporters linked arms and began chanting "Allah Akbar" as they stormed out of Downing Centre Court with Mrs Matthews concealed behind them.Tempers rose and they began jostling with police after several members of the group attacked cameramen.
It marked a stark difference from their behaviour minutes earlier, when they had quietly assembled outside the lifts for prayer shortly after the judge's decision.
Mrs Matthew's lawyer Stephen Hopper defended their actions saying: "They are obviously happy with the result and are expressing it in a way that is culturally appropriate to them."
Judge Jeffreys said yesterday that even if Mrs Matthews had made the complaint, he could not be sure she knew it was a "false" statement.
"I am not satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that she made the complaint," he said.
"Even if I was satisfied that she made the complaint, I am not satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that it was knowingly false."
Mrs Matthews made the claim in her court appearance last year, saying police could not prove it was her behind the burqa when the complaint was handed in to police. The local magistrate rejected it.
The case had lit up the religious debate when a magistrate found Mrs Matthews had deliberately made false complaints that Sergeant Paul Kearney was racist and had attempted to tear her burqa off her face when she declined to remove it on request.
She was pulled over for a random breath test last June, and accused Sgt Kearney of racism only after he booked her for failing to properly display her P-plates.
The incident was captured on a patrol car video camera and helped clear Sgt Kearney, prompting calls for all police cars to carry in-built cameras to avoid false claims.
"I've got my P-plates on my car ... there was nothing wrong with how they were displayed," Mrs Matthews says on the video.
"You look at me and see me wearing this and you couldn't handle it. All cops are racist."
She then threatens, "100 per cent", that she will take the matter to court and fight the charge.
