Not a regular customer....uh huh this was just one more opportunity for CAIR to send someone into a situation where they KNEW beforehand what would happen so they could attempt to change our laws a rules by screaming religious discrimmination...see the thing is...according to the laws of islam, muslims are not allowed to use any banks who charge certain fees and charges...that is why they DO have their own banks everwhere that are set up to operate according to their islamic law. Nothing more than a set up excuse for them to raise hell once again, not so long ago a man dressed in a hijab robbed a bank....good reason to keep the rule, that and I won't patronize any business that allows people of any group to enter wearing their head and face covered, too dangerous

Right on then. Open your own bank and let everybody wearing hoodies in. See how long you like getting robbed.

I'm so sick of this perpetual outrage on the part of Muslims. Everything offends them. If they don't like the banking rules, they can bank in Saudi Arabia.

Having been in banking 20+ years, I agree with the bank policy. I feel for this person but the safety of the bank personel and customers comes first.

its a security issue not a relifious one. the cameras need to see enough of you to identify you in a court of law. if you cant do business for five minutes without covering your face like a crook then bank somewhere else

I would not feel welcome as well if I have to be escorted by someone to enter a bank just because of the way I dress. I think they need to differentiate between a hat or a hoodie and religious clothing.
