Boston FBI: 'Not all Muslims are terrorists'
Boston's top FBI agent cautioned against a "broad brush" approach in regard to Muslims yesterday, saying the agency is only interested in specific terrorist threats and suspects.
Special Agent in Charge Harold Shaw, when asked on Boston Herald Radio about Republican front-runner Donald Trump's proposal to temporarily bar all Muslims from entering the United States, said, "I would assess not all Muslims are terrorists, nor should those individuals be painted with that broad brush that they are."
He added, "Interesting enough, within the FBI, we're not only responsible as a priority program here in investigating terrorism matters, we're also responsible for the civil rights ... of all individuals who are here within the United States."
