Not at all comfortable with this. ‘Muslim Community Patrol’ in NYC, driving cars that look identical to NYPD RMPs.— John Cardillo (@johncardillo) February 4, 2019
This looks a lot like Sharia Police. In Brooklyn. pic.twitter.com/U5RNy5clc8
We would be ticketed and fined for impersonating a police vehicle.
What say you Sharia sympathisers?
Aloha Snakbar !!
Radical Quakers! That's a funny image.
If this is for real we got a problem going on.
They say they'll act as translators and ambassadors of Islam. Pay no mind to the aping of NYPD vehicles and the navy blue uniforms...
“It’s like a neighborhood watch but on steroids,” said Noor Rabah, the group’s 31-year-old vice president who lives in Sunset Park. Imagine you are near Sunset Park fail to observe some Islamic moray and then you get detained by a couple of uniformed Muslims that are going to "explain" how to act. Nothing but good can come of this.
I understand the Jewish Patrol, they have to protect themselves from Musloids and anti-Semitism Democrats.......
Might not be a bad idea. Give it time...

Is this thread an example of that bias you wrote about on the other thread? Thank you for posting your pictures, which a simple Google search will produce. Sincerely!
Slade, keep licking the boots of racists.
I tend to agree with you. I think law enforcement should be left up to law enforcement officers. I was simply pointing out that the Muslims aren't the only ones who have community patrols. This isn't anything new.
For some it only seems to be the end of the world when it's one particular community.
I agree that having patrols for specific groups may appear, and in fact be divisive. If it is legal though, they have every right to do it, just as wearing MAGA hats is legal. And those hats are seen by others as being divisive. IMO, it is not just Democrats causing the division. But blaming one side does sell here.

It seems the volunteer patrols are working to reduce crime.
Now, if they are vigilante's, well... Not ok.
But if they are essentially community watch and outreach organizations, then AWESOME. It's AWESOME to think that communities may be able to do things like this which could help reduce crime in said communities... Cool.
In the end, I wish it was not needed or that folks in some communities didn't feel the need. But if they do, and it's ok with local/regional LEO. I dont see the negative.

Other incidents as well...
I have my concerns about folks not assimilating, or involved in crime, etc. But that is the case no matter who they are. And the reaction current immigrants face today is the same as previous waves.
Pretty sure 100 years ago, government documents weren't printed in over 80 languages because the immigrants refused to learn the language of their new home country.
Let me share a different perspective. I have had DACA students that we shared open conversations. All have said they love America, and that they love this country, their country, the only country they have ever known.
They have fully assimilated, I would not know their status without them telling me.
Their view from watching the conservative news sources is that all immigrants are hated today, and that most Americans see them as criminals. They are frightened and withdraw to a culture that accepts them... what all cultures before them did.
As I have gotten to know some of these students, first as individuals, then as being here illegally, my heart breaks for them. It was not their choice, yet from what they observe, they are hated by many. If they become citizens, they will remember.
Maybe my age is making me liberal? Maybe the Holy Spirit tugs at my heart?
I don't have any answers, except hate conquers nothing.
Pretty certain 100 years ago we were very limited in our ability to do that. Progress happens, and changes everything.
I believe in a common language though, and that is English in our country.
Cuz translators and printing presses didn't exist, right? What did exist was a resolve amongst the immigrants to assimilate, learn the language, blend into this melting pot called America. Plus the government wasn't going to kiss their ass and accommodate them.
No hate here, Frank. Just a belief in the rule of law. And by accommodating law breakers you only encourage more of the same behavior. I have no doubt your students love America. What's not to love?
Under Sharia law there are a lot of offenses/acts considered crimes. I’m sure they are busy!
Every country we went to, my wife and I immersed ourselves in the culture.
Too many people let their feelings and perceptions get in the way of reality.
Politicians know that and manipulate the uneducated/ignorant according to their whims.
Majority of "gun owners" are upstanding people....
Insert any group you love to hate between the quotes above and think about it.
In Korea I always heard crap from soldiers like HfW mentioned from the DACA kids.
Someone needs to tell them to man/woman up and quit being cowards.
Rather than hiding in their own culture they need to get out and check their perceptions so that they can be enlightened.
If we have learned anything as of late is that the media has their agenda and needs ratings.
Have a great day.....

Matt since you aren't from NY let me fill you in. The Shomrim patrol is in a scandal right now accused of paying off cops and several cases of brutality. years ago they stormed a police station destroying the place since they accused the police of not protecting their neighborhood enough. Well the cops responding to help the few officers in the station all arrived with their badges in their pockets and taught a lesson to those thugs about destroying a police station. I'm sure these patrols can do some good but it seems more often than not their are helping "their people" as opposed to the neighborhood. They DO have a lot of political power.
Printing presses existed, but could not spread information as fast as e systems do today.
Most of our major cities, especially those back east have pockets of different ethnicities. These people were not all hiding, nor are today's immigrants. A common human characteristic is to seek others out that have shared experiences, history etc.
I believe in 100% controlled immigration, 100% legal. I defer to the experts who know how to accomplish this for the specifics of how to achieve it. That being said, we do have a lot here illegally through little choice on their part. I find how we deal with them to be a moral/ethical issue as much as a political one.
I do not believe most are criminals, not even close. Most come here for the same reason my grandparents did, opportunity and a better life. In my way of thinking, this nation will know our best years are behind us when we do not have an illegal immigration concern. All laws must be obeyed, and national security is the first priority of our government leaders. These folks have courage, as they continue to move forward based only on hope, dealing with much uncertainty.
I am glad not to be one of the folks who have to make the tough decisions on this issue. Most of it is black and white, but not all of it to me. I would allow DACAs to remain here, pay a "tax" every year, and the only path to citizenship is the same one everyone else must take. A felony means deportation, but it would be legal for companies to hire them. They would qualify for SS if they paid into it,and monetary limitations on flows out of the country. Their kids born here would only be citizens if the law currently allowing it remains in place, otherwise they would get into line with the rest of the applicants.
I know many/most of you will probably disagree. Maybe I am soft having known scores of them through the years. They assimilated very well and are accepted by fellow students on my campus. Most have no idea of their status unless they share. Honestly, they reflect what I hope is a way we should want to treat our fellow humans. But yes, this country has only so many resources so we must set limitations.
The Democrats have Trump on their side to fix this political football but choose not to....
I find this rather interesting. If this is what they truly believe, and I have no reason to doubt you, it is probably due to two reasons.
1. Either they are relying on what someone told them was said on conservative news sources.
2. They don't understand the English language as well as you think they do.
I watch and listen to a lot of what most would consider "conservative news" and I have never once heard anyone say that they hated all immigrants. Quite the opposite actually. To a person, anyone that I know of that identifies as a conservative, has no problem whatsoever with immigrants. What they have a problem with are illegal immigrants.
Later in the day, when the sun is overhead, they will reveal their true intentions.
