Ex-FBI agent to train Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office how to ID threats; Muslim group protests
by Tim Potter
The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday found itself in the middle of a national controversy over a former FBI agent accused of training law enforcement in a way that casts suspicion on all Muslims.
By Wednesday evening, the sheriff's office said it is sticking with its decision to host the trainer, saying his expertise in the Muslim world and in fighting terrorism can help officers distinguish between good guys and bad guys.
That announcement came just hours after a major national Muslim organization asked the office to cancel the training program by former FBI Agent John Guandolo because it says his message would lead officers to have a biased and distorted view of Islam.
