comfortable giving that to your son or daughter."also check for the latest software update and anti- virus protection. but if that gift isn't a perfect fit -- don't worry. "one, make sure that you have the receipt. if you don't have the receipt, at least figure out what store you got it from. and don't go taking it out of the box if you're not going to use it. that's generally a no-no when it comes to returns the next day."retailers often charge restocking fees for those returned electronics that have been opened. for consumer watch -- i'm mary moloney. some 10-percent of holiday shoppers wait until today to buy their last gifts. that's according to the national retail federation. and that jives with what starbucks expects in gift card sales this christmas. the national coffee-house chain says it's prepping for record starbucks card purchases on christmas eve. last year, some two-and-a-half million starbucks cards were purchased on december 24th. that means roughly 17-hundred cards per minute went out the door! folks in utah, california and new mexico are most likely to

police said no one was hurt and no property was damaged. an anti-muslim group in florida wants a muslim deputy fired. they are also calling for the broward county sheriff who hired him to resign. the issue gained national attention when an online post by a radio went viral. randi kaye reports. "i know not every muslim is a jihadist, but all the jihadists seem to be muslims." joyce kaufman has been on talk radio in south florida for more than 20 years. a hot topic these days is a man named nezar hamze. he's the regional director of cair - the council on american islamic relations. he's also a sheriff's deputy of broward county. kaufman says deputy hamze wasn't properly vetted, given his connection to cair and wants him gone from the police department.
from racist to moron to islamophobia, a one trick phony. you know, i refuse to bow down." "are you an islamaphobe? "no, not at all." "neither hamze nor the sheriff would speak to us but a spokesperson for the broward county sheriff's department told me hamze has been with the department since 2011.a full time deputy since 2014. the department considers him an excellent deputy and loyal american." hamze travels the state speaking out against extremism. and trains muslims in mosques how to escape an active shooter. still, kaufman wants him investigated. and she's not alone. activist david rosenthal calls deputy hamze "deputy hamas" "i hate islam. islam is evil."rosenthal even held a rally protesting hamze. but cair florida's lawyer says critics have it all wrong: "whenever we're in an electoral year, there's a spike of this islamaphobic rhetoric.when we hear people
kaufman supports donald trump's idea to surveil mosques and ban some muslims. "do you think you're contributing to the fear when you bring it up on air?" "i think the fear is there. i don't think i do anything to stoe it. i don't have to. it's there."the fact is, and kaufman knows the numbers, only a very small fraction of the world's 1.6 billion muslims endorse the violence of terror groups like isis and al qaeda. still, she wonders if hamze would take action: "as a sheriff's deputy, his job is to uphold the law and sounds like you're concerned that maybe he would turn the other way if he heard some radical conversations taking place in a mosque, right, am i hearing you correctly?" "that is correct. i don't know, i mean, i can't say that, that's a fact, but i can't say it's not a fact."kaufman wants to know if hamze was ever cleared by the fbi. the lawyer for cair says he was fully vetted by the fbi.
