Majority of NYC Voters approve of NYPD Surveilling Muslim Communities

Despite criticism from CAIR, the FBI and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, NYPD gets high marks in a recent Quinnipiac University survey about treating the Muslim community fairly and dealing with terror threats generally.

Via NY Daily News:

Most city voters think the New York Police Department has been effective in fighting terrorism, and a majority say the NYPD has acted appropriately in its dealing with Muslims, according to a new poll released Tuesday that questioned respondents following a series of stories from The Associated Press about the NYPD’s surveillance of Muslims after the Sept. 11 attacks.

The Quinnipiac University survey found that 82 percent of respondents thought that the NYPD had been effective in its counter-terrorism efforts. Asked whether the NYPD dealt with Muslims fairly or targeted them unfairly, 58 percent thought the NYPD was appropriate, while 29 percent thought police were unfair and 13 percent didn’t know or had no answer.

The 29 percent is a slight jump up from the 24 percent who thought the police were unfairly targeting Muslims in a February poll.

Recently, at the annual CAIR Chicago banquet, that city’s Police Chief chided his NYPD brethren for its treatment of the Muslim community.
