    Well i spent 25 years in the military actve duty and reserves. I am a disabled veteran of the military as well as my 20 year police career.I have absolutely no problem with a 14 or 15 year old jrotc kid wearing a hijab in uniform for religious reasons. My problem is, based on the history of comments on this website some have made about Muslims there seems to be a pattern of intolerance even hate . Robocop33 or GPD75, whichever name you go by, you have made many comments about Muslims that seem to be very hateful in my honest opinion. That is one of my biggest issues with policelink. members who are supposedly professional law enforcement officers and their supporters make some of the most hateful comments i have ever seen. Robocop33 you have right now on this website, comments that you have made over the years that include the N word . The F word for alternate lifestyle and a host of other bizarre and hateful comments. You called a female15 year old sexual assault victim a horrible name. The comment was tolerated and left for the world to see until a complaint was made to Monster corporate headquarters. These type of comments are tolerated by moderators on policelink.

    See I believe Monster.com realizes this. They have been made aware of the bashing that goes on by supposed professional law enforcement members and supporters. Members who are supposed to be cops have bashed Our commander in chief, his wife and kids, the NAACP, The ACLU, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton.
    They call for the death of suspects by different graphic and inhumane methods. Policelink members have bashed religions from catholics to muslims. I have seen the N word thrown around in here and all kinds of caustic language. Again, Monster recieves regular reports about this type of hateful activity, In my opinion it will be the death of this site. This story and caustic comments about our Commander in Chief are a prime example.
    Try this for an example. Google these terms. Robocop33 obama policelink.....Robocop33 the Nword policelink.....Robocop33 catholic policelink...Robocop33 al sharpton policelink...Robocop33 (the f word for gays) policelink, Robocop33 muslims policelink. These are just an example.

    This message is just my opinion but it is why policelink is slowly being taken apart. trust me when I say Monster corporate gets reports of these hateful comments posted by alleged professional law enforcement members. Again this is only my opinion. I'm sure it wont stay up long as it steps on too many toes in here

    I am a retired military and LEO supervisor. In my opinion this site really needs to clean up its act. Lots of Member submitted stories are inflammatory and are outright lies. I firmly believe members submit these stories to flame up hateful comments.

    Anyway this is just one man's opinion

    Podypo. The Constitution say that "Congress shall make no law establishing a State religion". There is not statement about separation of Church and State. The STATES actually CAN make a State religion I guess but that would be a very poor idea IMHO. There is nothing in there that says you have to even acknowledge a religion or that you cannot recognize a religion.
    The JROTC IS a 'pre-military' organization. It is lead and run by either an active duty military person or retired serviceman, often an officer. Someone that completes JROTC in HS is given credit in Active duty after they enlist and start off with an immediate promotion. My son entered the Army as an E3 because of it. They also take part in going to a military base and participating either in a summer camp, going to sea on an active duty Naval ship, etc. ROTC itself is done in Collage and is rather strict and you wear the Actual uniform of the service you indicate you will join upon graduation and if you do then you enter as an Officer.
    I did not know what those 'ringlets' were called and as I am not religious I did not even think about the Jewish religion and pork. I did not know that. I only know that Muslims think pork is dirty. One of my friends here who happens to be Jewish was kind enough to let me know that these 'ringlets' that are worn by this sect are called peyots.
    Bottom line, these kids are supposed to be UNIFORM in appearance and clothing and hijabs are not uniform.

    Two of The Core Purposes of the JROTC Program is to develop Patriotism, and have an increasing respect for the US armed Forces. Downplaying Uniformity doesn't coincide with respect for the US Arm Forces IMHO. Another Purpose of the JROTC program is to develop Leadership Skills. How can you Teach Leadership Skills w/out first leading by your own example? I would rather see them disband the Entire Program, than to conform to what these kids want

    Robocop Are you serious? Try reading the first amendment. That is where it talks about the separation of Church and state. I love how you talk about the "pigtails" Hasidic jews wear when pigs are considered unclean animals by jews. Good play on words there. What people do not realize is the Jr ROTC is no more the military than the boy scouts are. This is not a policy put in place for the military period.

    Wait - hijab is about modesty so as not to offend God, right? That means covering to conceal the contours of the feminine physique. Uniform trousers clearly outline the contours of the hips, buttocks and thighs.

    So what's up with letting it all hang out below the beltline -, Sheik Yerbuti??

    JROTC now, the military next! While participatiing in JROTC sanctioned activities they need to comply with the current uniform policy, period! What anyone does when off duty and in civilian clothing is all good. I would have stayed in the Army but Don't ask don't tell made my mind up for me to retire! I could not continue in a command position and support what I did not believe in!

    The Liberals,Socialist,Progressive PUKES (whatever they wish to call themselves these days)who have made deep inroads in this country for the past forty years or so have done their utmost to destroy our freedoms and yes.even our constitution.They have done a fantastic job of it thusfar.They have sorely wounded our psyche as a nation and as individuals,We are as sheep,led to the slaughter.They no longer even attempt to hide their intent although,unfortunately all too many of the sheeple keep voting them into office.One of the major causes of this is the intentional "dumbing down"of our public educational system that we the tax payers are footing the bill for.I quite frankly bekieve it to be way too late to wake up and straighten up the ship of state.We have what we now have due to our indifference.

    Thanks Katz, not being Jewish I did not know the name but you are spot on, they would not be allowed. Of course I don't think they should either anymore than these turbans. I know that the Sikh's have strong beliefs and customs about their beards but in JROTC I don't think they are usually old enough for full beards. Removing the Ten Commandments is also a very stupid thing. The Constitution says that Congress shall not make any religion a law or something like that. It doesn't say anything about separation of Church and State, ANYWHERE, even though I think that is a good rule of thumb. To not make a rule and separation of Church and State does not mean that you cannot repeat anything that is in a religion like the Ten Commandments. Pretty good words to live by IMHO
