NYPD Has Spied On Muslim Residents For Years, Hasn’t Generated A Single Terrorism Lead

The Mercury News on the frustrating lack of insidious plots by the city’s residents:

In more than six years of spying on Muslim neighborhoods, eavesdropping on conversations and cataloguing mosques, the New York Police Department’s secret Demographics Unit never generated a lead or triggered a terrorism investigation, the department acknowledged in court testimony unsealed late Monday.

[The NYPD had] help from the CIA, which assembled databases on where Muslims lived, shopped, worked and prayed. Police infiltrated Muslim student groups, put informants in mosques, monitored sermons and catalogued every Muslim in New York who adopted new, Americanized surnames. Police hoped the Demographics Unit would serve as an early warning system for terrorism.

But in a June 28 deposition as part of a longstanding federal civil rights case, Assistant Chief Thomas Galati said none of the conversations the officers overheard ever led to a case. “Related to Demographics,” Galati testified that information that has come in “has not commenced an investigation.”

    The most hilarious demonstration of all is that they’re effortlessly able to get agent provocateurs inside these groups but not to “radicalize” anyone. Millions of dollars spent on training and support for each individual agent, trying so desperately to justify what they do, only to be reported by the good people of NY as suspicious or terrorists.

      Not all muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are muslim.

        People will take you more seriously if you more of an effort to say intelligent things and less of an effort to troll.

        • Roark

          That was a serious statement.

          • Andrew

            No it wasn’t. I feel sorry for you if you truly believe it was.

          • Roark

            Yes it was.-and I don’t want your pity.

          • Andrew

            My pity, my ridicule, or my contempt, take your pick.

          • Roark

            That’s a toughie….

            Yeah, a lot of people don’t know it, but Timothy Mcveigh was a secretly a muslim.

            what do we call people who attack civilians using drones? what do we call those who harbor terrorists?

        the classic troll appears again

      • the racism is killing me.

        US soldiers are not muslim, yet they terrorize the shit out of everyone. Sandusky is not muslim, nothing is more terrifying than child molestation and yet pigs are not wire tapping universities across the country nor are they keeping an eye on churches. They are just trying to justify all the money spent on the military.

    It couldn’t be more apparent that any sort of “terrorist” attack is a false flag operation. Well, back to the drawing board, government. Time to concoct the next boogeyman. Keep eating it up, fucking sheep.

    if the NYPD infiltrated the Wall Street Bankster community
    maybe attended their Satanist feasts or
    frequented their houses of prostitution
    they find more plots against America
    oh wait
    the NYPD works for the Banksters… neva mind

    Government is tracking a muslim and believes he’s a terrorist, I can believe that. But what about Andrea Hernandez ( http://bit.ly/QLM3oh ) a poor school girl is a terrorist too?
