According to reports, Police President Javier Ortiz was extraordinarily angry when he witnessed assistant chief of police Anita Najiy refusing to place her hand over her heart during the pledge.
“If you’re not pledging allegiance to the United States, my question is what country are you pledging allegiance to?” Ortiz asked of the Miami New Times. “Anyone who isn’t offended by that is not American, because when you become a U.S. citizen, you pledge allegiance to the U.S.”
Oritz went on to claim that Najiy had also failed to display the proper etiquette that “must be exercised when wearing a law enforcement uniform.”
Some viewers suspect that Najiy’s refusal likely has to do with the fact that she is Muslim.
What do you think? Should all American police have allegiance to America?
