Muslim organizations say police training teaches bigotry
by James D. Davis
A coalition of 30 Islamic organizations on Wednesday criticized the way Florida police are trained in counter-terrorism methods.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has used materials that spread fear and bigotry against Muslims, according to Nezar Hamze, South Florida executive director of theCouncil on American-Islamic Relations(CAIR).
In particular, the coalition singled out materials used by Sam Kharoba, president of the Cape Coral-based Counter Terrorism Operations Center (CTOC), saying they make "vile accusations against Islam, sweeping generalizations targeting all Muslims and factual inaccuracies."
