Petition NYPD: Don't Infiltrate, Collaborate!

    1. Petition by

      Religious Freedom USA

As we learned last week, the NYPD has been monitoring the activities of Muslim college students in New York, and outside the borders of the city itself. This creates a climate of fear and alienates future American leaders from a particular religious tradition.

New York’s Finest must do better: don’t infiltrate, collaborate. Rather than sending undercover police to attend Muslim Student Association (MSA) meetings in secret, they should welcome MSA leaders from across the region to an open house.

By building stronger relationships with Muslim campus leaders -- rather than alienating them -- the NYPD can further its mission of keeping New York safe, while recognizing that Muslim students are allies, not adversaries.

Sign RFUSA’s petition now in order to help NYPD improve its operations, while protecting the religious freedoms of our fellow citizens.

      I am not A US citizen, I am a Muslim, I had great respect for the US model of multi culture, mutual respect and faith freedom, as a leading model and example for democratic countries to follow. Please don't destroy that example. If the states does that, then what will be the difference from the falling Arab leaders' oppressing regimes?

      The current police policy is short-sighted, ineffective, and unfair to my fellow Americans.

      My reason for signing this petition is I was a member of the MSA at the University at Buffalo. I know the members of the MSA at the University at Buffalo. I am the sister of a Chief in the Air Force. I am the cousin of a high ranking NYS Trooper and Sharif. I am appauled by the behavior of the NYPD. I feel violated and intruded upon. I would challenge anyone to deny me my right to my civil liberties given that my family has served for a total of over 20 years in International and Demostic Security.
