NJ Attorney General Says NYPD Surveillance Was Legal [VIDEO]

New Jersey’s Muslim leaders are unhappy with the state’s review of spying within their communities by New York City police.

The state attorney general spoke with the leaders Thursday. He says he determined the New York Police Department’s surveillance of Muslim businesses, mosques, student groups and others had violated no state laws.

The Muslim leaders say they were told every single instance of surveillance in New Jersey was justified by a lead. But they say no specifics were provided and they feel insulted.

Mohamed El Filali, head of an Islamic center, asked why there had been no arrests if the NYPD had so many legitimate leads.

A spokesman for New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the review confirmed what the city has been saying — that all the police operations were conducted legally.
