Cop Who Wouldn’t Enter Mosque Loses Appeal
Cop fears sharia cooties or something.
A Tulsa police captain was properly demoted for refusing to attend, or order a subordinate to attend, a police appreciation event hosted by Tulsa’s Islamic Society at a mosque, the 10th Circuit ruled.
In 2010, the FBI notified the Islamic Society of Tulsa that terrorist threats had been made against it, and the Tulsa Police Department worked to protect the mosque and a school next door until the threat was over.
The Islamic Society decided to hold an event to thank the police department for its work. The event included a buffet of American and Middle Eastern foods, a mosque tour, and an optional prayer service.
