I did not know you could not obscure your identity in New York. I wonder how Muslim women deal with this? I think I will wear a bandana on my drive to work this morning and see what my fellow motorists think.

It's the RNC and also a very high-alert time for terrorism. Then these people wonder about the fashion mistake of wearing a bandana?
That's like a movie where the guys in full KKK gear walk into the 'hood somewhere. White pointy hat? What's wrong with that?
Gross over-reaction by the police?...So it should be allowed to wear a mask during these protests?...So you wouldnt mind the KKK wearing a hood and marching down your block?...Some people need to think....if someones hiding their identity...odds are its not for a sane reason...like it was stated...she either gets arrested....or the movie loses its filming permits...which do you think would happen first?...I like Dawson...but its the producer/directors fault...not the police to hear out every story as to why someone is there doing something they arent supposed to....

Actress Rosario Dawson was arrested yesterday when filmmakers used the anti-Bush demonstration to inject a little too much realism into her upcoming flick.
The New York-born actress was filming a scene for "This Revolution" at Eighth Ave. and 35th St., against the backdrop of the massive protest.
Dawson was wearing a black bandanna over her face when NYPD cops arrested her.
Dawson, 25, and co-star Vija Brigita Grosgalvis were bundled into a police wagon as director Stephen Marshall tried in vain to show cops city film permits. Police cited city laws barring protesters from hiding their identities with masks.
When Marshall protested the arrests, cops handcuffed him, too. "Take my camera," he shouted at his film crew before disappearing into the police van.
Okay, I have to admit. Wearing bandanas does make the protestors a little suspicious.
