A Cuyahoga County Corrections Officer faces discipline after a Muslim inmate engaged in prayer alleges he was attacked and placed in a chokehold by a member of the jail’s Security Response Team. Sources say the inmate, who is a devout Muslim, was told to pray somewhere else.
News5ClevelandWhen he refused, words were exchanged and the Cleveland Chapter of the designated terrorist group CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) said the inmate “was then attacked from behind by a corrections officer, picked up and held off the ground by his neck until he felt he couldn’t breathe, and then dragged in a chokehold over some distance, and slammed on his face onto the concrete floor.”
But it’s his word against the corrections officer, and we all know that Muslims can usually be counted on to lie. Said CAIR in a statement. “We also call upon Cuyahoga County to provide resources and funding sufficient to ensure that all staff are properly trained on use of force procedures as well as on the religious rights of Muslims.”
Muslims stirring up trouble in this jail is nothing new: Cuyahoga County has agreed to pay a combined $81,000 to two Muslim female inmates who say they were forced to attend Christian prayer services while serving time in jail.
