NYPD submits, will pay $2M in legal fees to Muslims, remove terror report from website

Will de Blasio appoint a Muslim from one of the Muslim Brotherhood-linked litigation jihadists to spy on the NYPD for Muslims? via: NYPD will yank terror report from website to settle case over spying h/t Ed

The city has agreed to more stringent regulations on anti-terror cops in ­order to settle two federal lawsuits that claimed the NYPD violated constitutional rights by spying on Muslims.

The city will pay $2,033,416 in legal fees to the plaintiffs, but no monetary damages, and will add another layer of review to a committee that monitors its intelligence gathering. The NYPD will also remove a 92-page report, “Radicalization in the West: The Homegrown Threat,” from its Web site.

And the department agreed to formalize spying rules that it says are already in place — such as not considering “race, religion or ethnicity” motivating factors in investigations.

“New York City’s Muslim residents are strong partners in the fight against terrorism, and this settlement represents another important step toward building our relationship with the Muslim community,” Mayor de Blasio said in a statement.

The mayor will appoint a lawyer who has never worked for the NYPD to a five-year term to monitor the committee that oversees intelligence inves­tigations.

“That person will sit in on the meetings, review materials and if that person has any concerns that the NYPD are not complying with the current guidelines . . . can and must go to the police commissioner and bring their concerns to his attention,” Deputy Commissioner of Legal Matters Larry Byrne said, adding: “And if they’re not satisfied with the discussion with the police commissioner, they can and must go to the mayor.”

The appointee could also take his or her concerns to a federal judge.

But a police source said that kind of meddling could be dangerous.

“That could put lives at stake if we’re waiting for a civilian to make a decision about what we’re about to do,” the source said.

Or for the civilian to leak information to the terrorists and their defenders – CAIR, ISNA, Muslim Advocates, etc.

“A terrorist isn’t going to wait for him to go make his complaints. He’s going to go blow up a train station or some s–t.”

The suits were filed over police surveillance on Muslims as part of a broad effort to prevent terrorist attacks after 9/11.

The settlement adds restrictions on surveillance set by the court-ordered “Handschu decree,” which was put in place in response to surveillance used against war protesters in the 1960s and ’70s. The NYPD relaxed the ­decree after 9/11 to give cops more power to monitor political activity in public places.

  1. de Blasio may as well hand the Muslims the keys to the city. This is insanity.

  2. GROSS. Bloomberg should not get one vote if he throws in his dirty hat in the ring of fire running for the presidency.

    • We’ve had the report on this site for many years now including at the end of this post and on our home page, left side under Key Reports.

      Get it any time you want.

  3. The NYPD is one of the most incompetent and corrupt in the nation and the world. They are now promoting Islamic terrorism.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
