Is it OK to profile Muslims? The answer depends on who you ask.
According to a recent report by the Associated Press, the New York Police Department secretly labeled entire mosques as terrorism organizations, a designation that allowed them to use informants to record sermons and spy on imams without specific evidence of criminal wrongdoing most of the time.
In recent months, the fight against profiling in New York City achieved a number of important milestones: The City Council passed the Community Safety Act over Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s veto, and a federal judge ruled that the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk program amounts to racial profiling, is unconstitutional and must end. Both of these victories speak to the hard work and dedication of New York City activists who stood up against police abuses.
