It's Discrimination, I Tell You ... and ... Trespassing Too!

... It's The Bare Face of Islam-o-Phobia! 
... I Know It Scares The Crap Out Of Me!

Claiming he was handcuffed, arrested and humiliated for wearing his Muslim clothing at Lambert Airport, a St. Louis cab driver is suing the Metropolitan Taxi Commission, the City of St. Louis and Whelan Security alleging religious discrimination.

Raja Naeem claims he was arrested for trespassing last Thursday, after being cited previously for violating the commission’s  dress code, which requires drivers to wear black pants and a white shirt. 

His attorney Drew Baebler says Naeem had been warned about returning the airport, “‘If you wear this again to the airport’ and he’s dropping off passengers, ‘you’ll be considered a trespasser and arrested.’ 

This time they arrested him and humiliated him by even taking off part of his religious garb (his kufi or  hat) and throwing it on the ground.”
