New NYPD unit will target and prevent extremism

It starts! Seems this sort of thing didn’t go so well for them in Europe…

New York Police Department (NYPD) officials announced Wednesday the creation of a special unit to combat anti-Semitism and far-right ideologies, which federal officials have cited as a growing threat.

At a press conference, Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) warned of a “crisis of anti-Semitism gripping this nation” as well as New York in particular following this week’s deadly shooting in Jersey City, N.J., which investigators believe was motivated by anti-Semitism.

The unit, dubbed “Racially and Ethnically Motivated Extremism,” will be overseen by the NYPD’s intelligence bureau.

“There is a crisis of anti-Semitism in this city. It has continued to take on a more and more violent form all over this country. Now we have seen this extraordinarily, extreme form of violence reach the doorstep of New York City and we have to take that as a warning sign,” de Blasio said Wednesday.

Sounds a lot like that “Sharia Law” squad (or what ever they’re called) that was in the news a few weeks back.
