NYC to pay $224,000 to Muslim firefighter who was accused of threatening to kill his fellow firefighters

If Raheem Hassan had been a non-Muslim who threatened to kill his Muslim colleagues, do you think criminal charges against him would have been dropped if he agreed to stay out of trouble and go into counseling? Neither do I. And now the city is paying him $224,000 because he was allegedly harassed, although “neither the city nor Hughes admitted any wrongdoing.” Clearly Bill de Blasio’s New York just wanted this case, with its allegedly “Islamophobic” firefighters, to go away: “Hassan’s lawsuit continues against two other defendants, firefighters Joe Lankford and Tommy Donovan, who, like Hughes, did not receive legal representation by the city.” They were on their own.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
