In a lawsuit filed, NYPD sergeant Kappa Farid claims he was harassed by his brothers in blue because he’s Egyptian and Muslim. How did this Arab snowflake ever make it to the position of sergeant in the first place?
NY Post Higher-ups at Staten Island’s 123rd Precinct allegedly harangued Kappa Farid, 54, for his Arabic accent, called him “sand monkey,” refused to let him speak at meetings and switched him to a midnight tour against his wishes — prompting his wife to ask for a divorce, according to the Brooklyn Federal Court lawsuit he filed against the city and the NYPD.
Farid was also prevented from working overtime and forced to give a negative evaluation for a gay officer (Oh, right, a Muslim being “forced” to give a negative evaluation of a gay officer. HAH!), he charges in court papers that claim “significant” harassment, Farid’s lawyer Marshall Bellovin said.
As you would expect, this wasn’t the first Muslim police officer to file a complaint or lawsuit against the NYPD.
Source From 2017: New York City Police Department (NYPD) Muslim Police Officer Danielle Alamrani (below), is suing the NYPD and several NYPD officers for, “being discriminated against and retaliated against on the basis of her religion, requests for religious accommodation and complaints of discrimination as well as being searched, seized and arrested without any reasonable suspicion that a crime had been committed.”
The suit, filed in the US District Court of Southern New York, is seeking, “declaratory and injunctive relief and damages ($,$$$$,$$$) to redress the injuries Plaintiff has suffered” as a result of alleged heinous religious discrimination.
Alamrani’s suit claims that the discrimination began when she, as a devout practicing Muslim, began wearing the Hijab on the job. Prior to making this decision, she “had no problems and was not harassed by coworkers.” A religious accommodation was requested and then granted, after another Muslim officer launched a class-action suit last year against the NYPD.
The work environment began to deteriorate shortly thereafter when, “immediately after Plaintiff Alamrani began wearing her Hijab in the workplace the environment changed in that her co-workers refused to work with her.” The union representative then informed her that her supervisors did not want her wearing the Hijab and went so far as to tell her she “should not wear the Hijab.”
In 2010, Alamrani alleges that a sergeant joked in front of fellow officers that she should not “detonate while on patrol,” a comment that dress laughter from everyone.
When this did not have the desired effect, Alamrani was reassigned to assignments with no overtime in a deliberate attempt to retaliate against her religious accommodation request. Increasingly, she was the target of blatant hateful remarks including pejoratives such as “terrorist” and “Taliban” along with comments about her being a “disgrace to the NYPD” and that “nobody liked her.”
Alamrani is one of two Muslim policewomen to wear a hijab while on duty. Here’s the other:
In December, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, spoke out in support of a female Muslim officer Aml Elsokary who was alleged she was abused and labelled ISIS by a man who threatened to slit her throat. Ms Elsokary was off duty at the time.
“I was sick to my stomach when I heard that one of our officers was subjected to threats and taunting simply because of her faith,” Mr de Blasio said: “We can’t allow this.”
Officials are calling on the city’s district attorney to rule out plea bargains in the case of hate crimes against Muslims as part of a tougher stance against racist or religiously-motivated attacks.
The National About 1,500 Muslims serve in the NYPD, of which 900 are uniformed officers, in a total force of 34,500, according to the Muslim Officers Society.
(Why do Muslim cops have to have their own special society and a green striped flag within the NYPD?)
Gee, guess who isn’t thrilled with having so many Muslim cops in the NYPD? The NYPD. And they have Mayor Bill DeBlasio to thank for forcing the NYC police department to hire some more than 1,000 Muslim recruits, ten times more than there were on 9/11.
NY Daily News This Muslim police force is DeBlasio’s way of making sure there is no more counter-terrorism surveillance of mosques and Muslims, as there was until DeBlasio put a stop to it as soon as he became mayor in 2014.
