A California university student complained a white male choked her while making an Islamophobic remark. Neither victim nor suspect were identified.
In Britain a teen girl complained to police that she was punched in the face while wearing her Klan hood, er, uh, hijab.
Police in Birmingham, England — where the alleged assault occurred — launched an intensive investigation. Muslims, after all, are widely considered a protect class; akin to the notorious spotted owl.
What the cops turned up was . . . nothing.
After reviewing video recording from security cameras, police determined the Muslim girl was lying.
Consquently, she was fined £90 which, we're guessing, didn't cover the cost of the investigation.
• In the USA, a teen was smacked down by a teacher for not wearing a hijab.

A Muslim teenager has been fined after she lied about being punched in the face because she wore a hijab in the days after the Paris terror attacks.
Student Miss Choudhury, 18, said she was attacked on New Street in Birmingham because she was wearing Islamic headwear.
She told police that she was knocked to the floor in the racist attack and that other Muslims in the area were being targeted following the French massacre, which saw ISIS jihadists kill 130 people and injure 352 at various locations in Paris in November last year.
Speaking about the made-up attack on November 23, 2015, Miss Choudhury, who did not want her first name to be revealed, said she had been left too scared to walk through in the city alone.
She said: 'I feel shocked and really scared that someone could attack you for no reason. I don't feel safe at all now.
'I was walking to the train station to meet some friends when someone shoved me from behind.
'When I turned around he punched me in the face and then just went off.
'I was really upset afterwards. I can only think it was because he saw my hijab as he didn't take my bag or anything.
'I've lived in Birmingham all my life and I've never experienced something like this before.
'It's made life harder for innocent Muslims. We don't want people to be killed, that's not our religion. Our religion is all about peace.
'My parents are so scared that they're telling me to take my hijab off. My mum's telling me to wear a hat instead.'
