Uderreported story: NYPD secretly takes "persons of interest" to Bellevue psych ER, concocts a story they've acted "crazy," puts them in restraints shoots them full of Haldol and interrogates them, instead of reading them their rights and allowing them to call a lawyer. Happening since David Cohen, former 4th-in-charge at CIA, was placed in charge of homeland security at NYPD.

Are We Safer?

Of course we are!

We've established "Security Theater" for our public transportation, and ""Civility Theater" for our public discourse.

(Except for your news division whose copy seems to continue to contain the verb "kill" when referring to Gov. Christie's action on the "ARC" Tunnel. )
