MANHATTAN - Members of Brooklyn's Muslim community held a rally today demanding respect from the NYPD and other law enforcement agencies. Protesters converged on Foley Square near police headquarters and the city's major courthouses, saying they are being unfairly spied on for security reasons. "We feel betrayed by government, by Police Commissioner Kelly, by community affairs who have come in and built relationships within our community, shaking our hands in one way and coming through the back door in the other way," said rally organizer Linda Sarsour. Demonstrators said they plan on having more rallies, and that they may work together with the Occupy Wall Street movement.
