Sheriff Jim McDonnell and Muslim leaders announce partnership in wake of racist emails
by Cindy Chang
After meeting with Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell on Wednesday, Muslim leaders said they are ready to work with law enforcement officials to move past the racist emails forwarded by one of McDonnell's top aides.
The aide, Tom Angel, resigned last weekend under pressure from those Muslim leaders and other civil rights activists.
Angel's emails, which included derogatory stereotypes of Muslims, blacks, Latinos, women and others, were published last week by The Times.
At Wednesday's meeting, which was attended by McDonnell and dozens of high-level commanders, the Muslim leaders agreed to work with sheriff's officials on a "diversity task force."
