A 1988 Investigation of Jamaat ul-Fuqra

 
Well, CP is at it again. He must have at least one Deep Throat among his contacts, because in his latest post he has turned up an original document about a City of New York Department of Investigation internal enquiry into a previous investigation of the Jamaat ul-Fuqra compound near Hancock, NY, back in 1988.

It seems that some officers of the Bureau of Water Supply Police were a little over-zealous and conducted an investigation of Jamaat ul-Fuqra on the flimsy pretext that a lot of ammunition had exploded in a trailer on their compound.

Naturally, when the investigation came to light, the officers were accused of racist motivations. So the higher-ups looked into the situation. What do you think they did?

A. Commended the officers for their diligence beyond the call of duty.
B. Followed up the officer’s findings with an investigation of their own, co-ordinated with the State Police and the FBI.
C. Buried the report in a pile of paperwork and never looked at it again.
D. Expressed outrage at the insensitivity of the officers to the multicultural and inclusive nature of New York’s rural community, and then reprimanded and/or fired their asses.

Tough call, eh?

Go over to CP’s place to learn the answer.
