Court Rules on NYPD: No Spying on Muslim Activities

The ruling, issued by the Third US Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia late on Tuesday, reversed a lower court’s decision to throw out the case. Back in 2014, New Jersey district judge Judge William Martini dismissed the suit, Hassan v. City of New York, which was brought by a coalition of Muslims who accused the NYPD of spying on them without cause.

The lower court’s controversial ruling found that the plaintiffs did not have legal standing to sue the NYPD, since the police claimed to be pursuing terrorists and did not explicitly single out people based on their religion. Martini also ruled that the plaintiffs could not show causation between the NYPD’s conduct and their claims of discrimination.

The Third Circuit rejected that logic and gave the lower court a brief history lesson — of material that he obviously failed the learn in high school. The judge makes no solid connection or firm fact to back his opinion.

“Today it is acknowledged… that the FDR Administration and military authorities infringed the constitutional rights of Japanese-Americans during World War II by placing them under curfew and removing them from their West Coast homes and into internment camps,” Circuit Judge Thomas Ambro wrote in an opinion for a three-judge panel. “Yet when these citizens pleaded with the courts to uphold their constitutional rights, we passively accepted the Government’s representations.”

The problem here is that neither the Jews no the Nisei (American born of Japanese descent) were shown to actually be sources of violent actions against the nation or citizens based on race or religion or any other factors. Muslims, on the other hand comprise virtually all the terrorism domestically and internationally. The U.S. State Department lists over 50 official terror organizations, all but two communist groups happen to be Islamic.

In addition, the judge failed to mention the most significant domestic terror incidents since the turn of the century have linked directly to Islam, including the World Trade Center and the Fort Hood incidents. Following the exact instructions the judge warrants insures more terror in the future.

Using a trove of leaked documents, the Associated Press exposed the details of the NYPD’s surveillance of Muslims in an award-winning investigation published in 2011. The series, written by Adam Goldman and Matt Apuzzo, revealed that in the wake of 9/11 the NYPD’s Intelligence Division implemented broad surveillance of Muslims living in the NYC area, often without any reasonable suspicion of criminal activity.

The catch is in the words – Often? That means there exists some valid facts and support. Suspicion of criminal activity is a very nice PC way to sidestep any real information that could prove vital in halting terror activity, which is actually different from traditional criminal activity.

AP parses words well, but Americans can read between the lines. The NYPD is keeping the citizens safe. The recent past is filled with examples of why one should be watching Islamists. And the lines are there to see. When the next attack comes, the judge will be absent from view and the mayor will pretend to be outraged.

Don’t be fooled by the fools causing this.
