WATCH: What this Muslim police chief just did goes against EVERYTHING that is America!
It is one thing to have Muslim students demanding that “American Sniper” not be shown on university campuses. It is quite another thing when a uniformed law enforcement officer, who is Muslim, decides not to render respect to the American flag — while in uniform.
As reported by Top Right News, “A Muslim Assistant Chief of Police in Miami is under fire for what she chose to do during the pledge of allegiance at a ceremony last week. Fraternal Order of Police President Javier Ortiz was livid after he witnessed assistant chief of police Anita Najiy disrespecting the American flag as she refused to put her hand over her heart during the pledge of allegiance.”
“If you’re not pledging allegiance to the United States, my question is what country are you pledging allegiance to?” Ortiz told the Miami New Times. “Anyone who isn’t offended by that is not American, because when you become a U.S. citizen, you pledge allegiance to the U.S.” Ortiz claims that Najiy failed to display the proper courtesy and etiquette that “must be exercised when wearing a law enforcement uniform.”
Now apparently, according to the department’s code of conduct, reprimand is in order for officers who do not salute the flag. A spokesperson for the Miami Police Department has assured that the matter is “currently under review.”
