The FBI Interrogated a Brooklyn Man Arrested for a Curfew Violation - 2020-06-04
Feingold and the others were taken to the NYPD's 78th Precinct, where they were told that they were being cited for violating the city's 8 p.m. curfew. It was there, Feingold told The Intercept, that they were interrogated by the NYPD and the FBI about their political beliefs and their reasons for participating in the nationwide protests — subjects that should, under the Constitution and local NYPD rules, be off-limits from law enforcement inquiries following an alleged curfew violation.
After being processed and taken to a cell, Feingold said he and the three men he was locked up with were approached by two men in plainclothes. "One of them is from NYPD intelligence and the other is an FBI agent," he said. Feingold said a third officer confirmed the affiliations of the two men as they were being discharged. The FBI agent's line of questioning was clearly focused on his political views.
"We want to know who's hijacking your movement and making it violent," Feingold recalled the agent saying. "That is what he said verbatim."
