Here’s the report from Russia Today:

After revealing that NYPD has been spying on New York Muslims for years since 9/11, the Associated Press reports that the Big Apple Police force has also been doing the same with the city’s liberals.

Undercover cops were sent to collect information at meetings of peaceful liberal activists and created a database on certain leaders who planned protests across America.

This is according to NYPD documents obtained by the AP that show how lawful activities were at the center of law enforcement’s counter-terrorism efforts.

According to the police, the spying was essential in preparing for the massive crowds that were expected in the Big Apple.

In a document recently obtained by the Associated Press, the spying continued way past the Republican Convention.

The report includes cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco and New Orleans as some of the places members of the police squad visited to gather intelligence.

“There was no political surveillance,” said David Cohen, the NYPD’s top intelligence officer to the AP.

Cohen’s testimony is part of the ongoing lawsuit over NYPD’s handling of protesters at the Republican Convention.

“This was a program designed to determine in advance the likelihood of unlawful activity or acts of violence,” Cohen added.
