MIAMI Police Union head slams Muslim Assistant Chief for refusing to put her hand over her heart for the Pledge of Allegiance
The head of the city’s police union is accusing the assistant chief of police, Anita Najiy, a Muslim, of lacking respect for the United States, and he’s circulating a video he says should lead to disciplinary action against her.
Miami New Times Fraternal Order of Police President Javier Ortiz was in the front row at a promotional event last week at Miami Police College to film Najiy, during the pledge. As other members placed their hands over their hearts, Najiy kept her arms by her sides. (Just like Barack Hussein Obama)
In doing so, Ortiz says, she failed to exhibit courtesy and etiquette that “must be exercised when wearing a law enforcement uniform.” “If you’re not pledging allegiance to the United States, my question is what country are you pledging allegiance to?” Ortiz says. “Anyone who isn’t offended by that is not American, because when you become a U.S. citizen, you pledge allegiance to the US.”
Yesterday evening, Ortiz sent a letter to Chief Rodolfo Llanes outlining the event. He also suggested appropriate discipline, including Najiy’s removal from a commander position. Najiy declined to discuss the complaint with New Times.
