Woman Strangled by Burka on Go-Kart

Original article here.

A YOUNG Muslim woman was horrifically strangled when her burka tangled up in the wheels of a GO-KART.

The 24-year-old woman's clothing wrapped around a wheel axle as she raced around the track.

Other racers on the track near Sydney, Australia, said the garment quickly tightened around her neck and throttled her within seconds.

She was rushed to the John Hunter Hospital in the New South Wales city of Newcastle but never recovered.

Cops have seized the cart and launched an investigation into the freak accident.
I bet they'll charge the Go-Kart with a hate crime.

I believe about three factors came into play here:
  1.  The Go-Kart company was afraid to tell her it was unsafe and to change, due to the potential for a discrimination lawsuit, as seen here. (Muslim Woman sues UPS for not allowing her to wear a long flowing burka in a high risk area and wins.)
  2. The vision restriction of the Muslim facial veil is obviously dangerous enough when it comes to regular driving, but on a Go-Kart, she wouldn't have noticed the burka's proximity to the wheel before it's too late.
  3. Stupidity. It's its own kind of punishment.
 This is a lose-lose situation for the Go-Kart company. On the one hand, they could have prevented her riding the Go-Kart and face a potential lawsuit, and the other is the result we have here. My solution? Waivers. If you have an monstrously fat child who wants to ride a Go-Kart, or someone who wants to wear a long skirt, they can. But they have to deal with the consequences. Unfortunately, in the politically correct societies we all live in, the government has decided we can't make the decision for ourselves.
