Bill Montgomery's Office Hires "Islamaphobe" to Instruct County Prosecutors on Muslim "Threat"

The Maricopa County Attorney's Office is sponsoring a training session for its prosecutors and other law enforcement officials on Muslim extremism, taught by individuals described as having an anti-Muslim agenda by various civil rights organizations.

The all-day event, scheduled for September 19 at a hotel in Tempe, is titled "Understanding the Threat," according to a flier advertising the training. It promises the seminar will "cover threats posed to our local communities by Hamas, Hezbollah and Shariah Law."
