Subject:   [september17discuss] NYPD: an equal opportunity represser
 

An excerpt from a note I sent to the OWS POC email:
You may have seen in the Times today a report on the City Council hearings yesterday challenging the NYPD on their wholesale surveillance of the entire Muslim community. Another account notes that at the hearing, Council Civil Rights Committee chair Deborah Rose linked that program with the NYPD stop-and-frisk daily harassment of youth of color:

Another example of how NYPD repression of OWS/TWU/Arab-Muslim-South  Asian community/Black and Latin@ communities is all of a piece!
