Is Dearborn a Police State?

Gary Fouse

Hat tip

Dearborn, Michigan is home to the largest concentration of Arabs in the US. It would stand to reason that most are Muslim. However, not all Arabs are Muslim. Every year Dearborn is host to what is called Arab Fest. I repeat; Arab Fest-not Islam Fest. Yet anyone who shows up and tries to espouse any other faith is subject to a lot of harassment.

And even arrest.

In 2010, 4 Christians were arrested by Dearborn police as they engaged in a peaceful conversation with young Muslim males on a public street. The police report states that they were engaged in incitement and shouting at the crowd. The video shows otherwise. What this video shows is an outrageous abuse of police power. As a retired law enforcement agent, I am ashamed at what I see on this video.

This is the kind of local abuse that the Justice Department should be investigating. Don't hold your breath as long as the Obama administration and Eric Holder are in power.
