  • C.S.: Iranian Diplomats to UN Should Face Increased Scrutiny (Oh, those 'diplomats' Islamists)

    Senator Chuck Schumer wrote a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today calling for “increased scrutiny” of the Iranian Mission to the United Nations in light of potential terrorist attacks against New York City. Pointing to NYPD’s director of intelligence warning that Iran is “essentially” the number one threat, Mr. Schumer argued these diplomats must ”be vigorously monitored.” “With Iran’s increasingly bellicose and threatening behavior, it’s imperative that agents of the Iranian government in the United States receive additional scrutiny to ensure that they pose no threat to New York or the rest of the country,” Mr. Schumer said...

    It was just a chance encounter on a downtown street — but she was instantly enamored. “I’ve seen you on TV. You’re so cute,” said the woman who would later accuse Greg Kelly of rape, according to a law-enforcement source. The brunette crossed paths with the handsome “Good Day New York” host two days before the alleged attack. “She stopped him,” the source said. “She told him she was star-struck.” DA TAKING HIS TIME ON CASE What followed was about 48 hours of marathon sexting ahead of their Saturday-night date at the South Street Seaport. “The texts were explicit,” said...

    CIA operative's unusual assignment inside the New York Police Department is being cut short after an internal investigation that criticized how the agency established its unprecedented collaboration with city police, The Associated Press has learned. In its investigation, the CIA's inspector general faulted the agency for sending an officer to New York with little oversight after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and then leaving him there too long, according to officials who have read or been briefed on the inquiry. They spoke only on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to discuss the investigation. The CIA said last...

    Muslim groups are calling for New York's police commissioner to step down because of his appearance in a film they say paints them in a bad light. About 20 activists held a news conference on the steps of City Hall on Thursday and criticized Ray Kelly for giving an interview to the producers of the movie "The Third Jihad."

    The son of New York City's police commissioner, also a co-host of a popular New York City morning television show, has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman, a person familiar with the investigation said Thursday. Greg Kelly, 43, was absent Thursday morning from his job as anchor of "Good Day New York" and through a lawyer denied the allegations. The woman said she had drinks with him on Oct. 8, then went back to her office, where she was assaulted, the person familiar with the case told The Associated Press. She went to police Tuesday, according to the person,...
  • Bloomberg blasts use of 'Jihad' movie during police training

    NEW YORK — Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Tuesday that New York police used "terrible judgment" in showing officers a film about Muslims that Islamic groups have complained is inflammatory. Bloomberg said commanders have stopped showing the movie, "The Third Jihad," which contends that Muslims are bent on establishing an Islamic regime worldwide. The film, which was played during counterterrorism training seminars, was bankrolled by a conservative group called the Clarion Fund, according to The New York Times. "Somebody exercised terrible judgment," Bloomberg said in Albany. "As soon as they found out about it, they stopped it."

    Technology and private philanthropy help keep the department at the top of its game.Less is more. That was the message that New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly gave the Police Foundation Tuesday morning as he offered an upbeat report on the department’s accomplishments and innovations over the past year. In a speech billed as his annual “state of the NYPD” assessment, Kelly touted crime statistics showing not only that the city was the safest it has been since 1963, but also that his department was operating at its leanest. Despite having 6,000 fewer cops on the street than six years...

    Authorities are investigating whether friendly fire killed a hero ATF agent trying to stop a drug-addled ex-con from robbing a Long Island pharmacy, sources told The Post yesterday. Officials said off-duty Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Agent John Capano, 51, a married father of two teens, was trying to foil a stickup at Charlie’s Family Pharmacy in Seaford on Saturday when a retired Nassau County police lieutenant and off-duty NYPD cop in a nearby deli heard there was a robbery in progress and the two armed men ran over. Within seconds, Capano and career thug James McGoey, 43, lay dead outside...
  • Muslims upset by NYPD to boycott mayor's breakfast

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Several Muslim leaders have declined invitations to the mayor's annual year-end interfaith breakfast, saying they're upset at police department efforts to infiltrate mosques and spy on Muslim neighborhoods. The imams and activists said in a letter to Mayor Michael Bloomberg that they're disturbed at his response to a series of stories by The Associated Press detailing New York Police Department intelligence-gathering programs that monitored Muslim groups, businesses and houses of worship. Bloomberg has defended the NYPD, saying last week it doesn't take religion into account in its policing. Bloomberg spokesman Stu Loeser acknowledged Wednesday that about...

    As a New Yorker, I am heartbroken by the death of Police Officer Peter Figoski, and as a black woman, I am outraged by the hypocrisy of elected officials like City Councilman Jumaane Williams, Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries and others who consistently critique the NYPD and oppose its stop-and-frisk policies. Have Williams, Jeffries and everyone else expressed their grief in the wake of the Figoski killing? Yes. But that doesn’t change the fact that these politicians and their allies never miss a chance to attack cops for their supposedly discriminatory targeting of black youth. Meanwhile, every day I read the paper...

    Updated 7:47 p.m. | The authorities have arrested a man who law enforcement officials believe was planning to build and detonate a bomb in New York with government workers, returning military personnel and elected officials as the target, two people briefed on the case said on Sunday. Cyrus R. Vance Jr., the Manhattan district attorney, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly of the New York Police Department announced the charges against the man at a Sunday evening news conference at City Hall. The man was arrested within the last 24 hours. The defendant in the case, identified...
  • OWS Places Entire NYPD Under "Citizen's Arrest"

    Occupy Wall Street has declared that they are placing the entirety of New York City's police department under citizen's arrest, demanding that police agree to be imprisoned and stop arresting protesters. The citizen's arrest has come from dozens of OWS supporters, who have declared that the police are part of the "1%" and that following laws is illegal. I have a strong feeling, however, that the NYPD will not allow themselves to be cuffed by a bunch of protesters. Despite this, however, OWS is not backing down from their citizen's arrest. Here are several examples from Twitter. Arrest them all:...

    "Lower Manhattan Security Initiative (LMSI): The Lower Manhattan Security Initiative (LMSI) is a networked surveillance project designed to detect threats and perform pre-operational terrorist surveillance south of Canal Street in Lower Manhattan. LMSI combines an increased police presence with technology to accomplish its mission. At the heart of this initiative is the public-private partnership fostered amongst the NYPD, private entities, and public agencies in Lower Manhattan to create an information sharing environment and better defend against potential threats to the nation's financial capital. The Lower Manhattan Security Coordination Center (LMSCC), staffed 24/7 by NYPD officers, recently opened in November 2008...

    Riot police deployed under cover of darkness at 1 am. No video cameras were allowed during the early hours of the raid. News teams were barred from the scene. Air space above Zuccotti park was shut down. ­Above all, a well-prepared removal plan received shock-op back-up as the NYPD rolled out long range acoustic devices (LRADs) on the streets of NY. The device is capable of emitting a tone higher than normal human pain threshold and can permanently damage hearing. Evidence of LRAD weaponry was captured with cell-phones during the raid against OWS protestors, early morning November 15. This is...

    Protesters in New York faced off with police Tuesday after being kicked out of their tent camp in lower Manhattan in a huge operation that threw the two-month old Occupy Wall Street movement into crisis. All morning, several hundred protesters played cat and mouse with the authorities as they searched for a way to reestablish themselves in the wake of the nighttime raid. About two dozen people were arrested when one group of activists tried to occupy a small park apparently owned by a church. The crowd marched through the Financial District and eventually turned back to Zuccotti Park, their...

    Note to tourists visting New York: Don't be caught out without your ID, or you could be caught in the city's penal system for days, if the recent experience of 21-year-old college student Samantha Zucker is anything to go by. Actually, Zucker, barely qualifies as an out-of-towner, since she hails from the Westchester town of Ardmore. And the underlying charge that led to her tour in jail was a minor trespassing citation, dismissed by a presiding judge in no time. But no matter: A vigilant NYPD officer deemed her a sufficient threat to public safety to have her handcuffed and...

    A three-year investigation into the police’s habit of fixing traffic and parking tickets in the Bronx ended in the unsealing of indictments on Friday and a stunning display of vitriol by hundreds of off-duty officers, who converged on the courthouse to applaud their accused colleagues and denounce their prosecution. As 16 police officers were arraigned at State Supreme Court in the Bronx, incensed colleagues organized by their union cursed and taunted prosecutors and investigators, chanting “Down with the D.A.” and “Ray Kelly, hypocrite.” As the defendants emerged from their morning court appearance, a swarm of officers formed a cordon in...

    Hundreds of police union members turned up outside court today to support 16 New York policemen charged with abusing their authority by helping family and friends avoid paying traffic tickets. The 13 officers, two sergeants, one lieutenant and five others were arraigned in a Bronx court on Friday after handing themselves in last night following a mammoth city investigation. But union members made their voice heard by clogging the street near the courthouse, filling the hallways near the arraignment room and applauding in court after the officers left.Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, said ticket fixing was sanctioned...
