An outlandish example of political correctness occurred in Tennessee yesterday when a police officer allowed a car full of Saudi Arabians to drive away with a dead baby reportedly in the trunk so as not to be “disrespectful” towards Muslims.
Police in Sumner and Robertson counties are on the lookout for a blue Dodge Charger after a traffic stop on Interstate 65 around 3:15 p.m. Wednesday.
The vehicle, which had paper tags and a registration violation, contained three Saudi Arabians with Saudi drivers licenses who told the officer that they had a dead child in the trunk prepared for an Islamic burial at a mosque in Franklin.
Millersville Police Chief David Hindman told News 2 that the officer, “not wanting to be disrespectful to the men or their faith, let the car drive away without checking the trunk to see if their story was true.” The cop also failed to take the names of the Saudi men or any information from their identification documents. It was also subsequently confirmed that there isn’t even a mosque in Franklin.
