Three female police officers were ordered to dress up as Muslim women for the day just to see what it felt like.
I seriously doubt this bolded part. It's a pay out if ever there was one. FORCING someone to don the attire and affect religious practices that are not their own is in breach of equality and diversity law.

More garbage from the Daily Hate Mail.

According to that equally estimable rag The Metro "PCSO Helen Turner said she was 'keen to gain a better understanding of the issues which our communities face'..."

Ah, bless!

So does that mean in order not to offend Jedis they must now dress up as princess Leia from Return Of the Jedi (gold bikini) for the day?

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

What a load of crap.

"The police spokesman said the officers who dressed up believed they were being monitored by security staff when they went into a shop and were stared at in the street"

If someone walked into my shop wearing a mask id be wary too. You're not allowed to waltz into a petrol station with a helmet or balaclava on, so why are this lot allowed?

So can I dress as Terry Taliban for the day and tool around with an AK raising hell to get a 'feel' for what it's like to be them?
To be fair, just like reality for them, I imagine it'll feel like dodging bullets all day long.

C'mon we've all dressed up as women before, it's nothing new. Ffs we even have people who undergo surgery to make them look a bit like women, in bad light, if you squint a bit.

A more worthwhile exercise would`ve been to dress some male coppers in the gear and see if they could get through the UK border points, surely more sense than letting a few birds go shopping in fancy dress :evil:

Let us not forget that there are also ...

Pakistanis, Afghans, Mauritians, Tamils, Burmese, Irish, Italians, Dutch, French, Germans, Scandinavians, Portuguese, Spaniards, Greeks, Cypriots, Poles, Turks, Kurds, Armenian, Baltic people, Bulgarians, Czechs, Hungarians, Kosovans, Romanian, Russians, Lithuanians, Ukrainians, Bangladeshis, Chinese from Hong Kong, Filipinos, Koreans, Japanese, Malaysians, Singaporeans,Thais, Vietnamese, Antiguans, Barbadians, Dominicans, Guyanese, Jamaican, Grenadians,Montserratians, Trinidadians, Nigerians, Ghanaians, Sierra Leoneans, Nigerians, South Africans, Kenyan, Ugandans, Tanzanians, Somalis, Ethiopians, Assyrians, Egyptians, Lebanese, Moroccans, Arabs, Iraqis, Iranians, Kurds, Jews, Americans, Canadians, African Americans Argentines, Bolivians, Chileans, Colombians, Cubans, Ecuadorians, Mexicans Peruvians, Brazilian Australians, New Zealanders in the United Kingdom, Pacific Islanders, Māoris Fijians... not to mention Pagans, Goths, Sheiks, Jedis and Gypsies plus many many more. (apologies for any duplicates or those I've missed out)

I certainly hope that the police are intending to provide their officers (and Plastic Plods) with appropriate national costumes so that they can all feel a deep and meaningful connection with all of these important ethnic groups. Otherwise that would just be a clear case of blatent police discrimination!
