Assalamu alaikum, NYPD officer ‘converted’ to Islam in order to go undercover and spy on Brooklyn College students which led to the arrest of two women accused of ‘building a bomb and planning to wage jihad in New York’
Since 9/11, the NYPD has engaged in widespread and systemic Surveileence of Muslim communities in New York City and beyond. Its operations have been vast, invasive, and damaging to both civil liberties and public safety.The NYPD’s surveillance has sown significant distrust of law enforcement in the policed communities and has been largely ineffective in gathering useful intelligence information. So much so, in fact, that civil rights groups (including the Brennan Center) urged the New York city council to create an independent IG’s office to investigate the Department’s policies and practices and to make recommendations for reform.
