    I mean, I assume police departments and the FBI infiltrate domestic groups all the time, but the CIA is supposed to only spy outside of the country.

    Ideology is an excuse to ignore common sense.

      that an agency as sophisticated and complex as the NYPD needs far more civilian and judicial supervision than that which comes from the Mayor's office. However, I'm not opposed to what the NYPD is doing. Quite frankly, I'm happy their doing it because they're probably better at it than the federal government.

      This is going to be one of those areas where I respectfully differ with my progressive brothers and sisters.
