Why are police investigating? This is not a law enforcement issue, this is a plumbing issue. Would police be investigating if two copies of, say, The Conscience of a Conservative or The Art of the Deal were found in a toilet at the University of Texas at Dallas? Of course not. Some unfortunate university employee would be tasked with fishing them out, and that would be that. But desecrating the Qur’an is a crime — not in federal law or Texas law, but in Islamic law. Why are police enforcing Sharia in what is supposed to be still a free country?
“Investigation After Copies Of Quran Discovered In UT Dallas Toilet,” CBDDFW.com, April 13, 2017:
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Police at the University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) are investigating how two copies of a holy book ended up in a toilet on the campus….
UT Dallas Police Chief Larry Zacharias said, “We’re still reviewing video to see if we can get people identified.”
But Chief Zacharias also said that surveillance video has given them some new insight in the investigation. “We originally suspected these Qurans may have come out of the Reflection Room, which is on the first floor of the Student Union,” he said. “We’ve watched video in this timeframe and only two people went into that Reflection Room — both went in empty-handed and both came out empty-handed.”…
Many at UT Dallas say the campus is inclusive and welcoming, so the discovery has left many in shock. Zacharias said, “We constantly ask all of our students, from all backgrounds, do they feel safe on campus? And [the answer] is always yes.”
Police said no one has come forward to claim the Qurans as their property; so no compliant has been filed and that without a complaint the incident can’t be called a crime.
