DAILYKENN.com -- At first glance it appears to be a police car. A closer look reveals it is not.
Large letters on the vehicle say, "MCP PATROL". A smaller inscription reads, "Muslim Community Patrol."
It is a growing trend among Muslims and other groups to police themselves. Many worry that shariah law is displacing constitutional law in the United States.
Muslims are not alone. Other groups in Brooklyn, New York — including Asians and Jews — have their community patrols as well.

A car from the new Muslim Community Patrol has been spotted around the city, joining the Jewish enclave’s Shomrim and the Brooklyn Asian Safety Patrol among New York’s culture-specific security groups.
The white Ford Taurus bears insignia nearly identical to those of an NYPD patrol car — with blue horizontal stripes down the sides, a shield on the front driver’s side door and the words “Muslim Community Patrol” descending on the rear door, where a department vehicle would say “Courtesy Professionalism Respect.”
The vehicle was recently spotted cruising along Fifth Avenue in Brooklyn’s Bay Ridge, home to a burgeoning Muslim population.
