NEW YORK – Fed up with a decade of police spying on the innocuous details of the daily lives of Muslims, activists in New York are discouraging people from going directly to the police with their concerns about terrorism, a campaign that is certain to further strain relations between the two groups.
Muslim community leaders are openly teaching people how to identify police informants, encouraging them to always talk to a lawyer before speaking with the authorities and reminding people already working with law enforcement that they have the right to change their minds. Some members of the community have planned a demonstration for next week.
Phi Beta Iota: We have been saying for some time that the US Government no longer represents We the People. In NYC under Mayor Mike Bloomberg, a privatized CIA has flourished, and NYC is now a police state in every sense of the word. When the law becomes unjust, unethical, and plain nuts, it is no longer legitimate.
