Anyone who has ever served in uniform knows to stand at attention and to salute the flag during the pledge of allegiance; it’s a vital part of the “military code of conduct”. And for a police officer especially an Assistant Chief of Police not to pay allegiance by a simple act of placing your hand over you heart or saluting the flag speaks volumes of that police officers act of defiance.

And so when the Assistant Chief of Police in Miami who is also a Muslim refuses to pay tribute to the flag, it’s easy to surmise that her beliefs have something to do with disrespecting the flag, which had Fraternal Order of Police President Javier Ortiz livid after he witnessed the action or inaction of Assistant Chief of Police Anita Najiy.
