37. No, they're not. . .

Last week, the Council on American-Islamic Relations asked the Shreveport police to investigate whether its officers did anything wrong, including failing to help stop the discrimination. But on Monday, the police spokesman told TPM he didnít expect the agency to conduct an internal inquiry because no one has explicitly alleged the officers did something wrong.

Likewise, the civil rights group also asked Subway corporate headquarters to investigate and demanded an apology from the company. The company referred the investigation to Flemingís franchise and has so far offered no apology.

If CAIR felt Husain had standing, they'd have alleged by now that the officers did something wrong. And if Subway felt there were a valid need for an apology, I'm sure it would have been offered almost immediately.

I believe a full investigation will probably show Husain acted deplorably and tried to hide his own distasteful conduct behind a reprehensible allegation of discrimination.

All this said, I stand by my previous assertion that there just isn't enough known at this time to form an opinion, and that what is known is far too contradictory to draw any valid conclusions. But again, I'll repeat, this won't stop people on this board -- and elsewhere -- from making all sorts of judgments about something they neither know nor understand.
