Long Beach city council has agreed to pay a huge sum of $85,000 to settle a lawsuit that accused a police officers of stripping a Muslim woman of her hijab during an arrest and making her spend a night in jail without it.
According to the federal lawsuit, male police officers forcibly removed Long Beach resident Kirsty Powell’s head covering when they took her into custody in 2015 even after she explained she wore it as part of her religious beliefs.

The officers made her take a booking photo without the covering and didn’t return it until she was bailed out of jail the next day, court documents say.

“She cried throughout the ordeal and experienced humiliation when both her religious beliefs and personal integrity were violated,” Powell’s lawsuit says.
“She felt that the male officers and male inmates had seen parts of her body that they should not have seen, according to her religious beliefs.”

The Long Beach City Council on Tuesday voted to pay Kirsty Powell the settlement, which covers damages to Powell and her attorneys fees.
About six months after Powell filed her lawsuit in May 2016, the Long Beach Police Department changed its policy to generally allow inmates to wear religious head coverings unless there’s fear forcing inmates to remove them might raise a chaos.
