Christie Blasts NYPD For Lack Of Communication on Muslim Surveillance

Governor Chris Christie is strongly criticizing the New York City Police Department for carrying out surveillance operations on possible Muslim terrorism suspects in the Garden state – without letting authorities in Jersey know what was going on.

During Townsquare Media’s “Ask the Governor” program this evening, Christie says, ” I know they think their jurisdiction is the world…but their jurisdiction is New York City – so if they’re going to leave their jurisdiction…it can be dangerous….what happens if we’re surveilling the same people we’re surveilling? We see them and we don’t know that they’re surveilling and that they’re law enforcement- they could very well be somebody who’s involved in the plot – this is the way law enforcement people get hurt or killed.”

As for NY Police Commissioner Ray Kelly not apologizing for the lack of communication, Christie said, “Of course, because he’s Ray Kelly, so what are you going to do? I mean he’s all knowing, all seeing…I have a record as U.S. Attorney for being as tough on terrorism as anybody…I understand we need people who are doing covert surveillance …but my concern is why can’t you be communicating with the people here in New Jersey?”

The Governor also said his state Attorney General Jeff Chiesa is investigating the situation, and the two will speak about the matter tomorrow.
