The New York Police Department (NYPD) spied on Rev. Al Sharpton, The Huffington Post reports.

Moreover, The Post was told by two undercover officers that they were tasked by superiors to discredit Sharpton as early as the 1990s.

Here is some of the story below:

The informant had attended the NAN meeting a week after a Queens judge had acquitted three detectives of the fatal 50-shot killing of Bell and the wounding of two of his friends in November, 2006.

Angered by the acquittals, Sharpton had vowed to “stop the city” with acts of civil disobedience at major transit hubs during the afternoon rush hour of May 7, 2008.

“We strategically know how to stop the city so people stand still,” Sharpton said at the time. Nearly 200 protestors were subsequently arrested on that day.

According to the police document, the informant, who was identified not by name but by a five-digit number given to him by the department, provided the NYPD with a detailed description of NAN’s protest plans, including the names of prominent African-Americans set to participate, the locations where protestors would gather and the number of demonstrators who would offer themselves up for arrest.
