St. Paul police officer dressed in a Muslim hijab issues apology for photo

| No Comments

A St. Paul police officer issued an apology Tuesday for a photo that circulated around the Internet depicting him dressed as a female Muslim Target employee, according to the Pioneer Press.

Robert Buth, who provided off-duty security at a Target store, was captured in a photo from Halloween. The photo showed him in a red hijab covering his head with a Target name tag that read a very common Somali name, according to the Star Tribune.

Buth's apology was well-received by Somali and Muslim community activists, but think that there needs to be more community dialogue between St. Paul police and members of the Somali community.
