NYPD abandons program that spied on Muslim neighborhoods

The New York Police Department said it has abandoned a program that sent plainclothes detectives to eavesdrop on conversations in Muslim neighborhoods.

The decision by the nation’s largest police force to shutter the surveillance program represents the first sign that William J. Bratton, the department’s new commissioner, is backing away from some of the post-9/11 intelligence-gathering practices of his predecessor.
