U.S. judge says police wrong to arrest Sikh student for carrying knives

AP) - DETROIT-Police at Wayne State University should not have arrested a student for carrying knives that were part of his Sikh religious beliefs, a judge said.

Sukhpreet Singh Garcha, 23, was arrested Aug. 14 for carrying a 10-inch (25.4-centimeter) knife on his hip and a 5-inch (12.7-centimeter) knife concealed in his waistband. He was charged with violating Detroit's knife ordinance, which prohibits carrying knives with blades longer than 3 inches (7.62 centimeters).

Carrying a ritual knife known as a kirpan at all times is a basic tenet of Sikhism, an Indian-based faith with an estimated 25 million followers worldwide.

The American Civil Liberties Union and United Sikhs protested the arrest.

Detroit 36th District Court Judge Rudy Serra ruled last month that the knife ordinance was intended to apply to people carrying "a knife as a weapon or for some unlawful purpose."

Since Garcha was carrying the kirpan for religious reasons, the ordinance did not apply, the judge said.

"There is no question that forbidding him from wearing the kirpan imposes a burden," the judge said. "It would be similar to an ordinance that made it illegal to wear a cross or a Star of David."

Wayne State Public Safety Director Anthony Holt said campus officers will not arrest Garcha or other Sikh students who carry a kirpan, The Detroit News reported Tuesday.

There is no need to. The 2nd Amend. Is as clear as a bell. They just don't recognise the bell ringing.

In the UK Seihks carry an ornamental knife on a necklace with about a 1 inch blade.

Anything longer and they'd be slicing up muslims given the history of Seikhism(The 9th prophet was beheaded by muslims and the 10th declared no seek should hide his faith(Turban)or go unarmed(traditionally a knife) in the presence of muslims).

Make of it what you will.

People people, we just need to form a Mega Church, instead of asking for money, we ask for ammo. And we can do skits like uh...faith healing... "In the name of Colt, I heal thee" BLAM. "Well, he went to a better place at least...."

Sounds good to me. Can we perform Smith & Wesson lobotomies too?
