Mayor Bloomberg

Dear Editor,

I applaud New York Mayor Bloomberg’s stand by the police department’s intelligence gathering of the Muslim population.

I understand that not all Muslims are terrorists, however, most terrorists are Muslim. (People like the Timothy McVeigh and the Unibomber are the exception, but even they were too cowardly to risk their own lives).

What other group of people are suicidal and will kill randomly, even their own family members who they believe violated some rule or precept?

Police departments keep continuous surveillance on gang members. What is the difference between surveillance of them and suspected gang members?
