NYPD in town, not talkin’ pizza

March 25, 2007

Seems like the New York Police Department is making a move on Albuquerque. First, Albuquerque lands two unassociated pizza parlors sporting the NYPD acronym, and now we get word the actual NYPD is actually conducting actual police work in our fair city. (Three ‘actuals’ in a sentence? Try to stop me.)

For at least a year before the 2004 Republican National Convention, teams of undercover New York City police officers traveled to cities across the country. . . .From Albuquerque to Montreal, San Francisco to Miami, undercover New York police officers attended meetings of political groups, posing as sympathizers or fellow activists, the records show. [Via the International Herald Tribune.]

Next thing you know they’re going to start making cross country trips in their helicopters to score some donuts. Crazy.

UPDATE: The ABQ Tribune has picked up the story and has the reaction from local activists and civil libertarians.
