The Minnesota Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, (CAIR-MN) is asking for access to public records about the training of local, state and national law enforcement personnel. The group is asking local police departments, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Minnesota, and the local FBI office, to share information training as part of a coordinated effort by CAIR chapters across the country.
The organization wants to ensure that law enforcement training presents an unbiased view of Islam.
Munauzza Humayun, (moo-NOW-zah hoom-EYE-oon), civil rights co-ordinator for CAIR-MN, talked with KFAI’s Lennie Chism.
