Police Accused of Violating Muslims’ Civil Rights

Cy Musiker speaks with Veena Dubal of Asian Law Caucus:

 

Local police chiefs are signing deals to do counter terrorism investigations with the FBI. Those deals require police officers to follow expanded FBI rules and investigate people and groups without any factual evidence they’ve done anything wrong. If true, that’s in violation of the California Constitution, which prohibits intelligence gathering by law enforcement without suspicion of criminal wrongdoing based on fact.

 

Dubal: What needs to be in place is strong oversight provisions, and an MOU that the OPD signs with the FBI that says that if we are going to be involved in these types of activities, our agents are not going to be involved with investigating people unless they have criminal suspicion.
