Chelsea Islamist Bomber Ahmad Rahami Sued Police in 2011 for Profiling Muslims
Ahmad Rahami reportedly filed a federal lawsuit against police in his hometown of Elizabeth, New Jersey alleging discrimination and “selective enforcement.”
Ahmad, 28, his father Mohammad Sr, 53, and his brother Mohammad, brought a lawsuit against the city in 2011 in Newark federal court, claiming that Elizabeth residents abused them regularly. The suit alleges “discrimination,” “false arrest” and “abuse of process” that humiliated them and hurt their business.
According to the DailyMail, the family has owned the chicken restaurant since 2002 and allegedly experienced bigotry from the beginning. The suit blames them for a “reckless disregard and deliberate indifference for plaintiff’s constitutional rights of liberty, due process and equal protection.”
