'What?' Confused 911 caller outs NYPD spying in NJ

Recommended Posts

It's an audiotape the New York Police Department hoped you would never hear.

 

A building superintendent at an apartment complex just off the Rutgers University campus called the New Brunswick Police 911 line in June 2009. He said his staff had been conducting a routine inspection and came across something suspicious.

 

"What's suspicious?" the dispatcher asked.

 

"Suspicious in the sense that the apartment has about — has no furniture except two beds, has no clothing, has New York City Police Department radios."

 

"Really?" the dispatcher asked, her voice rising with surprise.

 

The caller, Salil Sheth, had stumbled upon one of the NYPD's biggest secrets: a safe house, a place where undercover officers working well outside the department's jurisdiction could lie low and coordinate surveillance. Since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, the NYPD, with training and guidance from the CIA, has monitored the activities of Muslims in New York and far beyond. Detectives infiltrated mosques, eavesdropped in cafes and kept tabs on Muslim student groups, including at Rutgers.

 

The NYPD kept files on innocent sermons, recorded the names of political organizers in police documents and built databases of where Muslims lived and shopped, even where they were likely to gather to watch sports. Out-of-state operations, like the one in New Brunswick, were one aspect of this larger intelligence-gathering effort. The Associated Press previously described the discovery of the NYPD inside the New Jersey apartment, but police now have released the tape of the 911 call and other materials after a legal fight.

 

"There's computer hardware, software, you know, just laying around," the caller continued. "There's pictures of terrorists. There's pictures of our neighboring building that they have."

 

"In New Brunswick?" the dispatcher asked, sounding as confused as the caller.

They gotta quit with this spying thing. It's constitutionally bullsh!t to hunt down random Muslims for fun, and it's ridiculous they spend money sending cops out to Jersey and everything when we still have tons of crime around here.

Well unfortunately the Muslim community hasn't been vocal enough to root out the extremist elements in their own community. IE: the silent majority. Be grateful we aren't in the FDR days where he rounded up countless Japanese Americans into prison camps following the Pearl harbor attacks. As terrible as it is, wire taps are better than mass prisons.

You can't just say that all muslims are potentially terrorists. Go ask the japanese all about that.

First of all, we have the FBI and the CIA and the NSA and every other three-letter acronym for unconstitutional "investigations," we don't need the NYPD going out to Jersey to search. Secondly, really? Every Muslim in the city has to be "investigated?"

Reminds me of what Raymond Kelly said about the Aurora massacre last Friday, I'm like, this has nothing to do with us and you're talking like you're investigating this shit! Let's keep our noses out of other peoples' business and worry about ourselves here in New York City. Not Colorado. Not New Jersey, nowhere but here.

How do you know a terrorist is going to be a Muslim. You can be a terrorist against your own country.

 

 

Anyone can a terrorist, not just Muslim. You can be an American and be one. Never know!
