Tulsa cop in hot water for refusing to send officers to mosque event

A Tulsa police captain is being investigated by his department because he reportedly refused to require his officers to attend a law-enforcement-appreciation day at a local mosque, the Tulsa World reports. The captain has filed a federal lawsuit against the department, saying that his civil rights were being violated.

Fields stated that he sought the advice of legal counsel and believes that "forcing me to enter a Mosque when it is not directly related to a police call for service is a violation of my Civil Rights," according to a memo to his supervisor dated Feb. 17.
