LAPD Scraps Muslim Mapping Plan

November 15, 2007  | 

Los Angeles police will not create a computer database of the city's Muslim population in an effort to better understand them, as previously planned.

"While I believe the department's efforts to reach out to the Muslim communities were well-intentioned, the mapping proposal has created a level of fear and apprehension that made it counterproductive," the LA Times quoted Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa as saying.

Los Angeles police say they will reach out to the Muslim community in other ways so they can identify potential extremism.

I would submit that perhaps Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa needs to ask himself what the fear and apprehension of the loved ones and all concerned citizens was like during 9 September 2001!
I've always felt that if law abiding citizens were doing nothing wrong and they were concerned and involved in their government, then they had little to fear. People in this country forget that government, and law enforcement, is here for the good of and protection of the citizenry. If thieves were operating in your neighborhood, who would take OFF their locks?

God forbid you let a police department take a pro-active approach to Law Enforcement. You know for a fact when something goes wrong in LA (not if but when) liberals running the city will blame the PD for not doing anything to prevent it.
