WBBM: Muslim Cop Claims Department Discriminated Against, Fired Him
On March 24th WBBM reports:
"Ramtin Sabet said his fellow North Chicago police officers made derogatory comments about him being Iranian and a Muslim. They allegedly accused him of being a leader of ISIS and used other names.
“I would show up to calls, they said ‘oh Mr. Taliban’ pulled up here,” he said.
Sabet said he filed a complaint in 2012 after five years of such harassment, including comments in front of members of the public. That supposedly did not change anything so he filed another one last year.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations will represent Sabet in his federal civil rights lawsuit. Ahmed Rehab, executive director of the organization, said the Muslim officer did not request that anyone be fired or even disciplined. He just wanted the behavior to stop."
