Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office won't partner on anti-terrorism training by controversial speaker
by Tim Potter
The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office said Friday that it has decided not to partner with a citizens group sponsoring an anti-terrorism training session planned for next week, saying it has become too controversial.
The Sheriff's Office said in a news release issued at 5 p.m. that it had heard from both supporters and opponents of former FBI agent John Guandolo and that the controversy had overshadowed the intent of the training.
Critics of Guandolo's training say it gives a distorted and biased view of Islam that casts all Muslims as suspects.
