CIA Engages Local Police in Ethnic Profiling
By James Wilson

Much of the language below has been borrowed from the an email to Coalition members, which we have adapted:

DownsizeDC.org is part of a coalition that sent letters to the Senate Intelligence Committee, the U.S. Marshals Service and the U.S. Department of Justice. The coalition is requesting that they take action in response to revelations that the New York City Police Department working with the CIA is engaged in widespread religious and ethnic profiling and monitoring of Muslim communities in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

The specific request in each letter is below:

1) Senate Intelligence Committee: Requesting that they “launch an immediate investigation into this affair and hold formal hearings on the civil rights implications of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) sponsoring domestic spying activities by the NYPD and its legality.”

2) The U.S. Marshals Service: Requesting that they “withdraw its deputization of those special unit police officers involved in the above mentioned NYPD intelligence gathering activities, taking into account their safety and liability, the legality of such activities, and the civil rights implications of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) sponsoring domestic spying activities by the NYPD.”
