nypd spying on mosques
Linda Sarsour joins Ahmed to share her outrage at the NYPD spying scandal.
Call it a cri de coeur, a collective cry of the heart, from voices rarely heard -- the city's Muslim community, pushing back for the first time against the NYPD's secret spying on them for the past decade.
The NYPD has violated a longstanding court order in its pervasive spying on Muslims and lied about it, according to papers to be filed today in federal court.
Ray Kelly was at his misleading best at the 92nd Street YMHA last week in trashing the Associated Press' Pulitzer prize-winning series about the New York City Police Department's widespread and pervasive spying on Muslims.
