Muslim Americans march in N. Phila.to support police
by Mark Fazlollah
About 100 Muslim Americans marched to a city police station Tuesday to demonstrate their support for Officer Jesse Hartnett, who was shot last week, authorities said, by a man claiming to be an Islamic State supporter.
Waving signs saying that they backed police, Hartnett, and peace, the group - most in it students - denounced the shooting and terrorism.
"These are the real Muslims," said Ozzy Khalil, a spokesman for the Muslim American Society of Philadelphia, which operates a school, mosque, and community center near the Whitaker Avenue station house shared by the 24th and 25th Police Districts.
