San Angelo residents Terry Giroux and Ken Casper are livid a seminar taught by a former FBI agent to Texas law-enforcement last month has gotten some bad publicity.
The Texas Commission on Law Enforcement recently rescinded six mandatory credit hours from law-enforcement officials who attended a seminar it originally approved.
"It appears that there was a full-court press done — after the fact — on the TCOLE to say, 'Hey are you going to stand by (this event)?"' Giroux said. "Personally, I think that's horrible. And I think it is a politically correct move."
The daylong course "Understanding the Jihadi Threat to America" was taught by John Guandolo — who has called Islam a "barbaric and evil system" — to members of the San Angelo Police Department and the Tom Green County Sheriff's Office and other Texas law enforcement officials at The Heights Church on May 4.
