Three Democratic state senators say an independent inspector should oversee the New York City Police Department after what they say are abuses including the widespread surveillance of Muslims and the crackdown on Occupy Wall Street protesters.

The bill comes in the wake of a series of articles by The Associated Press that detailed monitoring of Muslims, a tactic decried by some as religious profiling.

The measure from Sens. Kevin Parker, Eric Adams and Bill Perkins of New York City, however, appears to have little chance of passage. It lacks support by the Republican majority and has no counterpart in the Assembly.

    Anyone that does not believe that the Muslims of this world are not out to dominate it do not know much about the religion. They are close to taking over Europe now and the U.S. is next on their agenda. So I say let the NYPD go for it. The fight on our side has to start somewhere.

    The muslims are the enemy of the United States not the NYPD

    Democrats need to worry less about political correctness and more about supporting NYPD in the fight against terrorism.
