The following email has been making the rounds. Someone asked me if it's real:
By now you've heard of Sultaana Freeman. Sultaana is the Muslim convert
in Florida who is refusing to remove her veil for a driver's license
photo. So do you want to see what she looks like? Well here you go.
Sultaana with and without her veil!
Wait a minute! Doesn't that look like a mug shot on the left? Why, yes! I
think it is! I guess she was arrested! Well, as a matter of fact she was.
It happened in 1997 in Decatur, Illinois, which was after her conversion
to Islam. She was arrested for battering a foster child (religion of
peace, and all that). In 1999 she plead guilty to felony-aggravated
battery and was sentenced to 18 months probation.
By the way, since you've seen her face, you might as well know her real
name. It's Sandra Keller.
Ironic, isn't it? If Sandra/Sultaana had just gone along with the program
and allowed her face to be photographed it wouldn't now be plastered all
over the Internet. And so it goes.
Is this for real? Yes it is. Freeman's mugshot was dug up by The Smoking Gun
(now owned by Court TV), which can always be counted on for digging up the dirt on people. Here's a story about it from the New York Daily News
