ACLU says Muslim inmates in L.A. jails not treated equally
by Thomas Himes
The American Civil Liberties Union on Friday said Los Angeles County jails have not been treating Muslim inmates fairly and warned the Sheriff's Department to change its policies within two weeks or face a legal fight.
ACLU attorney Jessica Price said her organization's letter to interim Sheriff John Scott is a last-ditch effort to convince the Sheriff's Department to afford Muslims the same weekly services Jews and Christians receive.
"In the letter, we're giving him two weeks to address it. Otherwise we'll just go to court," Price said.
