King Holds Rally at NYPD Headquarters

Rep. and pro-surveilance Muslims support NYPD anti-terror program.

Rep. Peter King, R-Seaford, held a rally Monday in front of New York City Police Headquarters  along with a group of Muslims who support the NYPD's controversial surveillance of Islamic groups.

King told the group in lower Manhattan that police have to monitor such groups in order to fight the war on terror, according to the New York Daily News.

"If they were not doing what they were doing, to me they’d be negligent and remiss in their duties,” he said. “What they’re doing with their intelligence unit is what all police departments should be doing at all levels of government. It’s the job of the police department not to pick up the bodies after the attacks have been launched and carried out, but to stop those attacks from happening.”

New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly has come under fire after a series of Associated Press articles has detailed the NYPD's anti-terror operations since the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

"The few misguided individuals that showed up in support of the NYPD today do not speak on behalf of Muslim communities,"  Amna Akbar, a lawyer with the City University of New York School of Law's Creating Law Enforcement Accountability & Responsibility program told the Huffington Post. "Through know your rights workshops, rallies at Foley Square and Wall Street and calls for federal, state and city investigations, Muslim communities have been loud and clear that the NYPD's surveillance policies are unwarranted, dangerous and divisive."

Thank you,Peter King!! What ever happened to OUR rights? Yes Americans do have the right not to get blown up, just as Israel has the right not to get blown up. Zionist? If that means understanding that Israel has the right to defend itself and it's legal borders, then God Bless Peter King. Thank you for not being afraid to defend America!
