    Police force blows £100,000 on failed search to find a helmet to cover Sikh officer's turban

    The police respirator suit used by the counter-terrorist Operational Support Unit
    A police force spent £100,000 on a failed attempt to find protective headgear that fits over Sikh officers' turbans.

    West Midlands Police started its search after one Sikh constable decided he wanted to join the counter-terrorist Operational Support Unit.

    The man, thought to be in his mid-20s, was refused a place because he was unable to fit the necessary helmet and respirator over his turban and beard, both of which are requirements for strict adherents to his faith. According to a police source, the unnamed constable claimed he was being discriminated against and was then assigned the task - while on full pay - of sourcing new equipment that would fit.

    ..............

    A few weeks later he is said to have gone on long-term sick leave suffering from stress. The source, who estimated the total cost of the failed project, including the officer's wages, at £100,000, said: 'This was a shocking waste of taxpayers' cash.'

    They should have thrown a trash barrel over the a$s holes head and punched a couple of holes for his eyes and one for his mouth that was big enough to shove a f-cking doughnut through.

    Cost $2.50

    That picture isn't associated with the article BTW (not the Spaceballs one, the one RW posted).

    This story is pretty funny though. Just like Muslims should have to take off their bee keeper suits for ID photos, this guy shouldn't do a job that he can't properly perform with his religious attire. Either that or he should just do it without a helmet.
