Episode Summary

(5/8/2012) As the world reflects on the first anniversary of the death of Osama bin Laden, we take a look at what it means to be Muslim in America. In this post-9/11 world, top secret reports uncovered by the Associated Press reveal the New York City Police Department has monitored many Muslim American communities well beyond the city's borders. The surveillance tactics have come under serious fire -- critics have called it spying, and many Muslim American groups worry this could be a potential wide scale violation of civil rights. We speak to the very controversial Dr. Zudhi Jasser, an American-born Muslim and the president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, who shares his surprising beliefs on how to prevent future acts of terrorism and the critical role Muslim Americans must play to protect this country. Also, an update on our "Castle Doctrine" report and the controversial breed of gun laws center stage in the Trayvon Martin shooting.moreless
