NYPD Labels Mosques as Terrorist Organizations So It Can Spy On Them Without Specific Evidence

NYPD can target anyone who attends a mosque labeled as such for an investigation without further evidence


The New York Police Department has secretly labeled entire mosques as terrorism organizations, a designation that allows police to use informants to record sermons and spy on imams, often without specific evidence of criminal wrongdoing.

Designating an entire mosque as a terrorism enterprise means that anyone who attends prayer services there is a potential subject of an investigation and fair game for surveillance.
