Daljeet Singh and Mohammed Chotri were on a Greyhound bus headed from Phoenix to Indianapolis. The two were arrested at gunpoint outside Amarillo, Texas, and held for thirty hours because a fellow passenger thought they were speaking Arabic.

The fact that the two men were speaking Punjabi, and not Arabic, is beside the point. In recent months, minority communities have experienced a dramatic spike in similar incidents of ignorant bigotry. We all have a right to live free from profiling and law enforcement abuse.

Tell Potter County authorities that you expect more from Texas law enforcement agencies.
