Special rights for Muslims. Islamic law in America.
On Wednesday a glaring case of sharia occurred in Tennessee. A police officer allowed a car full of Saudi Arabians to drive away with a dead baby in the trunk so as not to be “disrespectful” towards Muslims.
The vehicle, which had paper tags and a registration violation, contained three Saudi Arabians with Saudi drivers licenses, who told the officer that they had a dead child in the trunk, prepared for an Islamic burial at a mosque in Franklin.
Millersville Police Chief David Hindman told News 2 that the officer, “not wanting to be disrespectful to the men or their faith, let the car drive away without checking the trunk to see if their story was true.” The cop also failed to take the names of the Saudi men or any information from their identification documents. It was also subsequently confirmed that there isn’t even a mosque in Franklin.
Apparently, it was a family transporting a dead baby, but the dereliction of duty and flouting of law enforcement norms because they were Muslims is dangerous and shocking.
Millersville PD: Father had permit to transport fetus
By WKRN web staff, December 10, 2014, Updated: December 11, 2014
MILLERSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A father stopped on Interstate 65 in Robertson County Wednesday afternoon had a permit to transport the 15-week-old fetus he reported was in the trunk of his car, Millersville Police Chief David Hindman said in a news conference Thursday afternoon.
Hindman said the mother miscarried at 15 weeks on December 7 at a hospital in Bowling Green, Ky., and the parents were given the permit from the coroner’s office. The father and two other men, all from Saudi Arabia, were transporting the baby to a mosque in Williamson County for an Islamic burial ceremony when they were stopped in Millersville.
A language barrier prevented him from showing the officer the permit, Chief Hindman said Thursday. “What they told the officer is their baby had died. They had processed the body according to Muslim faith,” he explained.
Hindman said the officer, not wanting to interfere with a Muslim religious burial ceremony, decided at that time not to cause a scene with the family in the midst of their mourning, and to let the vehicle go on to bury their child.
While the officer is five months new to the job, the chief says he stands by his employee. “I stand by my officer and he will continue to be with us here at Millersville police,” he said.
Chief Hindeman called the incident very rare, but said he does plan to create a new policy in order to deal with similar scenarios in the future.
