«Windsor Police Chief Gary Smith publicly apologized to the Muslim community this week after one of his officers allegedly patted down the wife of a suspect during a raid tied to a case in metro Detroit that ended in the shooting death of an Islamic leader.
“The actions taken did cause embarrassment and did offend their religious beliefs,” Smith said in a statement. “I sincerely apologize to the families and the Islamic community.”
Khan’s wife, Hiba Khan, was patted down by a male Windsor police officer during the raid, said Patrick Ducharme, the lawyer for the two suspects. Ducharme welcomed Smith’s apology.
Ducharme said that the pat down was unnecessary because Hiba was not being arrested. He added that if a patdown is to happen on a woman, a woman police officer should do it, especially if the subject is Muslim. Some Muslim women say their religion doesn’t allow them to make physical contact with men outside their family.”This is not just about Muslim women,” he said. “This is about all women. They should not be searched by an officer of the same sex.”
A police union official told reporters that the officers involved in the raid acted appropriately, according to Canadian media reports. (...)»
No Tundra Tabloids comenta-se o caso do seguinte modo:
«This is a classic case of Islamic values, specifically, sharia law, being accepted by non-Muslims. It's clear that the police officer did nothing wrong, but yet, the Windsor police chief is offering an apology for the proper conduct of one of his police officers. (...)A conformidade voluntária com a sharia é um dos sinais mais evidentes de que o Ocidente está a ceder à ofensiva islâmica e de que o efeito pretendido da jihad - instilar o medo no coração dos infiéis - está a ser plenamente alcançado.
It should never have been a question as to whether the officer acted properly "in this circumstance", because under the law, all people are to be treated in the exact same manner, there is no special treatment for particular groups. (...)
This is a prime example of sharia based principles being accepted by non-Muslim law enforcement officials in the West, and it needs to be rebuked and condemned in no uncertain terms. The Windsor Chief of Police should be forced to take back his apology and insist that his police officers acted correctly and will continue to frisk all suspects regardless of gender.»
