So Much For Wacky: NYPD Lies (Again) About Its Anti-Muslim Propaganda
Thanks to NYU's Brennan Center for Justice, the NYPD has been caught in a whole mess of lies about their "training" officers using The Third Jihad, a vicious film that presents images of killings, car bombs and executed children as "the true agenda of much of Islam in America...This is the war you don’t know about." When the Village Voice broke the story last year, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne dismissed it as a "wacky movie" mistakenly shown "a couple of times" - even though NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly actually appears in it. Now internal police documents obtained by the Brennan Center under the Freedom of Information Act show the film was shown "on a continuous loop" for up to a year to almost 1,500 police officers. This sure will help their already-strained relations with the Muslim community - not to mention any of the rest of us not crazy about lies, virulent racism, self-defeating mindsets and more lies.
