FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo police officer who was the target of an internal investigation involving a personnel complaint has been fired.
 
     KFGO radio reports that David Boelke received a termination letter Monday from Fargo Police Chief Dave Todd. Todd said in the letter that Boelke failed to respond to incidents, failed to collect evidence and failed to take reports involving criminal activity.
 
     Boelke's attorney, Mark Friese, wrote a letter to Todd last week criticizing the investigation. Friese said Todd has committed a crime by furthering a "defamatory matter." Todd denies any wrongdoing in creating the investigative report.
 
     Boelke has the right to appeal. Friese says Boelke is exploring his options.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Resettlement advocates in North Dakota are organizing training for a rapid response team to help refugees deal with threatening incidents like one last month that was captured in an online video.
 
     The video showed a Fargo-area woman shouting at three Muslim women sitting in a car in a Walmart parking lot. The three women are originally from Somalia.
 
     Organizers of the rapid response unit say many refugees who are victims of verbal abuse don't know where to turn and often the incidents go unreported.
 
     Hukun Abdulli (HOH'-koon ab-DOO'-ly), a leader of the Somali-American community in the Fargo area, believes the project will help victims of hate crimes while also educating people about the problem.
 
     Abdulli is helping to recruit leaders from other ethnic communities to join the team.
