Puerto Rico’s Police Department Sued for Discrimination
Puerto Rico’s police department has been sued over alleged discrimination against an atheist police officer. The suit is being brought against the police department by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
According to the suit, an atheist police officer was subjected to retaliation after he refused to participate in prayers with others in his precinct. The suit claims that he was demoted, stripped of his weapon, and required to wash patrol cars.
