Yale Univ. president condemns NYPD monitoring
Yale University President Richard Levin is speaking out against the NYPD's alleged monitoring of Muslim students across the tri-state area. According to the Associated Press, police surveillance included students on the New Haven campus, as well as at Stony Brook University, Rutgers University and the University of Pennsylvania. Levin says Yale police were not involved in the probe, and that the operation was unethical. The report also shows that police sent an undercover agent on a white-water rafting trip to recover students' names and the number of times they prayed. Investigators have confirmed that 12 people, who were once members of Muslim student associations, have been arrested and convicted on terrorism charges.AP: Records show NYPD monitored Muslim Stony Brook students
