LAPD On Defensive Over "Muslim Mapping" Project

Hosted by

Michael Downing is Deputy Chief in charge of the LAPD’s Counter Terrorism Bureau.  In Washington last month, he told a congressional committee, there is “a vicious, amorphous and unfamiliar adversary on our land.”  He said the LAPD hopes to identify communities that “may be susceptible to violent, ideologically-based extremism.”  Since then, news reports have talked about “Muslim mapping,” which has been denounced by the ACLU and others as “racial profiling.”
