I published a column last week with CNN Opinion on religious surveillance. Since 9/11, the NYPD has used community mapping, video surveillance, photography and confidential informants to map Muslim life in and around New York. No detail has proved too remote for the prying eyes of the NYPD. Mosques, student groups, restaurants, even grade schools, have all been surveilled, absent any evidence of wrongdoing. Regrettably, a New Jersey court recently ruled that the spying program is legal, and found that monitoring Muslims was the only way to stop terrorism arising from the Muslim community. I believe the decision is shameful and diminishes the Bill of Rights. You can read more at CNN Opinion.
