Police officer lets Muslim man go with dead child in his trunk after he says he has a permit
A Millersville, Tenn., police officer pulled over a man while driving because his car’s temporary tag was unreadable. The driver produced his driver’s license and told the officer that he had a dead baby in his trunk, with a permit to transport it. He refused to let the officer search his trunk, however, claiming it went against his religion.
According to Biz Pac Review,
In a sign of how browbeaten police have become in today’s politically correct world, the officer actually let the man go.
Police officials later said at a press conference the driver, who was the child’s father, had a permit from the coroner that allowed him to transport the body.
The dead child was being taken to a private Muslim cemetery in Franklin, Millersville Police Chief David Hindman said, but he admitted that the officer erred in letting the man go without seeing the body and calling a supervisor.
The officer was not disciplined, and the police chief explained that part of the reason for the mix-up was a language barrier. “You have to understand this is a one in a million incident,” Millersville Police Chief David Hindman said. “In my 30 years of law enforcement, I have never seen or heard of something like this happening.”
