By BI: The New York Police Department (NYPD) has been ordered by the Mayor to actively start recruiting and hiring more Muslims, a LOT more. Right now, there are about 800 (too many) Muslim uniformed police officers out of about 35,000. Of those, only about 20 are higher-ranked officials.
Houston Chronicle Lt. Adeel Rana, commanding officer of the community affairs immigration outreach unit, said there has been a slow increase over the past decade, but it has been rapidly changing in the past year and a half. (Ever since Muslim asskisser DiBlasio became Mayor) “It’s changing every day; we are getting more and more recruits,” he said.
“And as they see people of their own religion in uniform, their eyes brighten.” (You bet they do)
There has been an effort to increase openness and communication with the community since the new administration took over, stinging from a Muslim outcry over the contentious stop, question and frisk policy and the surveillance of Muslims.
A unit that investigated Muslims under the previous, effective police commissioner Ray Kelly was disbanded. (And along with it, crime, especially black Muslim crime and shootings, have soared)
As if recruiting Muslims isn’t a stupid enough idea, DiBlasio has ordered the NYPD to expand a cadet program where MUSLIM college students are given stipends (bribes) and fast-tracked to a job…(over better qualified non-Muslim candidates)
Rana said officers also attend community meetings and fairs. A video played during the department’s annual pre-Ramadan conference showed dozens of uniformed officers who are Muslim saying: “We are your NYPD.” Muslim leaders said they are encouraged by recruitment efforts. (ISIS terrorists can now get jobs with the NYPD. How great is that?)
“The more Muslims who work in the NYPD the better,” said Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Designated Terrorist Organization CAIR – Council on American-Islamic Relations. (Talk about the fox guarding the hen house)
“This is a way to break down the mistrust and create bridges in the community. Where an informant breaks down trust, a law enforcement officer builds it.”
John Miller, the department’s deputy commissioner for counterterrorism and intelligence, said the department is working with Islamic leaders and community members to figure out how to get a counterterrorism message out on the same platforms.
While rebuilding the relationship, he said, officials are working to reinforce a message: “You’re one of our communities and we are your police.”
