NYPD Spying on Muslims Produced No Leads

Profiling turns out not to be the most effective way to build a case


The New York City Police Department's heavily-criticized spying on Muslim residents did not produce any leads or help any investigations of terrorist activities, in a report a civil rights group calls a "vindication" of the city's Muslim community.

According to the Associated Press, testimony unsealed Monday evening revealed that NYPD Associate Chief Thomas Galati said no conversations monitored by the department's"Demographics Unit" ever led to a case.
