Threats against US Muslims must stop, authorities say

The FBI and US federal prosecutors say Wednesday that threats against Muslims would not be tolerated, after alleged incidents in the wake of of the Orlando gay club massacre, which was carried out by a Muslim gunman.

“Civil rights violations are a priority for the FBI,” assistant special agent Ron Hopper tells reporters. “We will investigate reported incidents against individuals based upon any class, any protected class, to include race, religion, and sexual orientation.”

US attorney Lee Bentley chimes in: “Making these threats is not only wrong, in most cases. Making these threats is illegal. Stop it. Any threats like this detract from what we’re doing in law enforcement.”
