The NYPD Boasts They Thwarted 14 Terror Attacks -- Why They Are Full of B.S.
From the article:
A review of the list shows a much more complicated reality — that the 14 figure overstates both the number of serious, developed terrorist plots against New York and exaggerates the NYPD's role in stopping attacks.
The list includes two and perhaps three clear-cut terrorist plots, including a failed attempt to bomb Times Square by a Pakistani-American in 2010 that the NYPD did not stop.
Of the 11 other cases, there are three in which government informants played a significant or dominant role (by, for example, providing money and fakes bombs to future defendants); four cases whose credibility or seriousness has been questioned by law enforcement officials, including episodes in which skeptical federal officials declined to bring charges; and another four cases in which an idea for a plot was abandoned or not pursued beyond discussion.
In addition, the NYPD itself does not appear to have played a major role in breaking up most of the alleged plots on the list. In several cases, it played no role at all.
Then, the NYPD has the unmitigated gall to be racist concern trolls and blame the victims in this article: NYPD commissioner Ray Kelly provokes blacks with murder comments
No one cared about cramming black people into an area, then depriving them jobs and resources to live comfortably there, as long as they were away from "good society" and out of sight. Oppressed people did not cause their oppression nor do they like being oppressed.
