New York residents worried about Sharia law have a new reason to be concerned.
Last week a car, which bears a striking resemblance to a New York Police Department patrol car, was spotted roaming the streets.
It read “Muslim Community Patrol” and it has some residents concerned, The New York Post reported.
The white Ford Taurus bears insignia nearly identical to those of an NYPD patrol car — with blue horizontal stripes down the sides, a shield on the front driver’s side door and the words “Muslim Community Patrol” descending on the rear door, where a department vehicle would say “Courtesy Professionalism Respect.”
The vehicle was recently spotted cruising along Fifth Avenue in Brooklyn’s Bay Ridge, home to a burgeoning Muslim population.
New York residents were outraged.

Their own set of laws. Can you imagine any other club doing this. https://t.co/yoXXOIkUDc

This is insane.
Why is the NYPD allowing this?? https://t.co/ftvF62Nr7p

That is a fantastic question.
What is that? NYPD ? Patrolling for what? Is this for real? https://t.co/DXcGBIMN40
