Omar Mateen, the Muslim who slaughtered 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida attended a mosque and members are claiming THEY are being terrorized by “Islamophobia.” They have asked police for extra protection- that isn’t going to happen though! 

The Islamic Center of Fort Pierce, Florida’s imam reportedly approached the county sheriff’s office to ask for a security detail, hoping officers could protect the worshippers as they entered and exited the center for Ramadan prayers in the evenings. But while officers agreed to patrol the area infrequently, requests for stationed police were consistently denied, with officials claiming they were too busy with other police work in the aftermath of the Orlando shooting to help, ThinkProgress is reporting.

“Incidents started to happen — people started to drive by and shout racial slurs,” Wilfredo Ruiz, a spokesman for the St. Pierce mosque who also happens to be communications director of the Florida chapter of the Center for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) told ThinkProgress. “And last Friday, when worshippers were exiting their services during the rain, cars were driving by splashing them.”

 

But the police didn’t cave to their demands.

The terrorist attack in Orlando has our entire agency working extremely hard,” read a statement provided to ThinkProgress by the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office. “Placing patrol units at specific locations by special request, even if reimbursed by the requesting party, is evaluated based on staffing levels and can at times limit our ability to maintain our mission and appropriately respond to the entire community.”

“At this time we have received no indication of safety concerns related to retaliation,” the statement added. “At the time of the request, we were unable to provide sufficient personnel to grant the request due to other contractual obligations.”

God Bless.

VOTE FOR DONALD TRUMP AND TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
