Watch out, Islamophobia? America’s ‘first Muslim patrol’ hits streets of Brooklyn

Watch out, Islamophobia? America’s ‘first Muslim patrol’ hits streets of Brooklyn (VIDEO)


They’re not cops or armed vigilantes, but Brooklyn’s new ‘Muslim patrol’ hopes to work with police to help make their neighborhood more Muslim-friendly. RT’s Caleb Maupin joined the patrol on its beat.
Founded by a Yemeni migrant and boasting at least 30 members, the Muslim Community Patrol’s (MCP) main aim is to be the “eyes and ears” of Brooklyn’s Muslim community. With uniforms and marked cars complete with sirens, the group could easily be mistaken for regular police – but don’t be fooled. The patrolmen are unarmed and have no police powers. Instead, the group radios to police if they encounter something that requires police action – or firepower. The volunteer-based organization is believed to be the first Muslim ‘patrol’ of its kind in the United States.
The patrol was founded in response to concerns over an uptick in Islamophobia, but they do much more than just patrol the streets. One volunteer who spoke with Maupin said that the group offers counseling, feeds the homeless, and participates in other community outreach projects.
“We’re here to help bridge the community together,” the volunteer said.
Local residents who spoke to RT seemed supportive of the initiative, although a few said the patrol, which mirrors similar groups created by Hasidic and Asian communities in Brooklyn, was cause for concern.

    Exists in every western city with a sizeable muslim community. And all they’ll do is generate more hate towards the muslim communities for being different and not integrating with their surroundings.

    Meh, if you're not willing to integrate just go back home. You'll be much safer. Oh wait, Muslims love to kill each other too.

    Also, for the hundredth time, there's nothing such as Islamophobia.
    That's as stupid as saying someone is death phobic.

    It's only normal to fear a religion that wants to kill you. It's not an extreme or irrational fear as is the definition of the word phobia.

    Democrats should cut the crap.

    They were allowed to immigrate to America, despite their backward ideology, because Americans are islamophobic. Makes total sense.

    Let's see how many "islamophobic" hoaxes they can come up with before they're caught. We all remember the boy with the clock / bomb, and the girl who claimed someone tore her hijab off.

    Not to make this a religious debate but are you referring to the ones that don’t vaccinate their children and caused a measles outbreak? There are extremists and backward thinkers in every religion

    There is also a jewish patrol why is nobody talking about that?

    Brooklyn’s Private Jewish Patrols Wield Power. Some Call Them Bullies.


    There are also bank and Apple store patrols as private security companies, and night club patrols (bouncers).

    These groups are approved by the police, heck why not, the police cannot be everywhere all the time and accepted by all communities, at least these groups patrol their own neighborhoods, coordinate with the police and are accepted by their communities, whatever they do is preapproved by the police and they call 911 if there are issues they can't deal with. As long as they don't abuse the reason they were created and the rules that they should operate under then there is only good things that can come out of that. When police is rejected by the communities and deemed biased you get the other alternative : lawless Ghettos where law and order is failing, like in some of Paris suburbs, some areas in Detroit, Baltimore, St Louis...

    First, Jews do not have patrols in NYC in the sense Muslim have it. Jews have dedicated emergency service catering mostly to orthodox community.

    Second, you do not see me talking about Muslim patrol, do you. Not until they will decide to stick their noses into my business.
