Skip to comments.Police Shut-down Event Promoting U.S. Constitution - Ann Arbor, MI (and CAIR gets sued...bfd)

Amid shouts of "What about free speech?" from the audience, the Allegan Police Department ordered the event shut-down. School officials notified police that they had received a letter complaining about the event from Dawud Walid, Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI). The letter asked the school to disallow the event despite an existing contract. CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism funding trial in U. S. history, U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation. As a result, the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, announced today that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR- MI), its Executive Director, the City of Allegan, the Allegan Police Department and the School District were named as defendants in a thirty-four page civil rights lawsuit filed in the Federal District Court for the Western District of Michigan, this morning. The claims included constitutional and contract violations.
CAIR = Council of Angry Islamic Radicals.
Continued Thompson, "Press accounts make it clear that an indictment naming CAIR as a defendant in the Holy Land Foundation trial was squelched by Attorney General Holder's office despite vehement objections by FBI agents and the federal prosecutors in Dallas."
so all I have to do is send a letter and they’ll shutdown those pro-abortion rally’s??
hasn’t worked with the ‘occupy’ rallys
just the socialist left attacking anything pro-Constitution
The title is confusing. The city getting sued is Allegan, on the western side of the state. The Thomas More Law Center, which is bring the suit against Allegan, CAIR, etc, is located in Ann Arbor.
