NJ Gov. Slams NYPD for Muslim Spying

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has harshly criticized the New York City Police Department for spying on Muslim neighborhoods inside his state and hiding it from local officials. The Associated Press has revealed NYPD agents photographed every mosque in Newark and eavesdropped inside Muslim businesses as part of a wider anti-Muslim spying program across the Northeast. Christie, a Republican, said he does not know if the spying was born "out of arrogance, or out of paranoia, or out of both."
