A terrorist expert in the New York Police Department has been removed from his top post allegedly for refusing to carry out an illegal order.

Nicholson, NYPD, refusing, order, illegal, AP photoInsp. John Nicholson, the second in command of the NYPD Joint Terrorism Task Force was reassigned to a regular crime unit because he would not take FBI files on Osama bin Laden, the New York Post reports.

The Post says deputy commissioner of intelligence David Cohen ordered Nicholson to bring him the files after bin Laden’s death last week, even though the FBI insists they should not be removed from its offices.

The Post says Nicholson, who has a background in Navy intelligence, will now oversee “day-to-day crime-busting” in south Brooklyn.
