ARLady your right on. I am for profiling, deportation, prison, and hanging when necessary.

You guys think it's ok to profile Arabs, but not other groups? Sounds a little racist to me. [;)] Seriously though all this hype about racial profiling is just a bunch of political correctness. I think cops will still look for the people that do certain types of crime, get some probable cause, stop them, and go from there. Preferably the probable cause will come first.
Link Posted: 6/24/2002 1:12:16 PM EDT
Good post! The politically correctness of things such as this has to stop. Racial profiling needs to be done not for racist reasons, but exactly for the reasons that you pointed out.....they are the primary ones who are commiting the crimes.

Not only am I in agreement of profiling Arabs in connection to terrorist activities, I am also in favor of profiling people in crappy vehicles driving through affluent areas, blacks, mexicans (insert group here) when in an area in which the particular group is the most likely offender. What I am also really in favor of: IF THE RETARDED CAN NOT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS (READ DEATH PENALTY) THEN THEY SHOULD BE STERILIZED AS THEY ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE ENOUGH TO REAR A FAMILY.

since this got pushed back to page 3 (in a not-so-subtle attempt to increase responses), anybody with any other thoughts?

How about adding male white wasps between the ages of 12 and 78 taking psychoactive prescription drugs, that have, or have family with, firearms? For the children, of course.

yes, please do not leave our domestic terrorists like Tim McVeigh and Eric Robert Rudolph off the list. oh yeah, Ted Kaczinski (UNABomber) and the recent 'smiley face' mail bomber fit that same profile too. factor that into your racial profiling. might as well lump in the recent mass murderers as well. get my point?

I think we need to quit handing out the "warm fuzzies" to the whackos that are destroying our country (comprized of all races!). I think one would have to be retarded to think that racial profiling does not work. I think some races have a problem accepting truths and that is where the real nitty-gritty problem lies. Get real folks this aint a dream we're living in here and the director ain't gonna say cut!

McVeigh did some truly nasty shit, but he was what - 1 out of tens of millions of young white guys? I'd say it's just a little different than tens of millions of "Muslim Arabs between the ages of 17 and 40" whose goal is to destroy the USA.

It is truly a sad commentary on the state of our country when "political correctness" out weighs sound defensive policy in our efforts to defend the homeland. Racial profiling is logically mandated when, as in the present situation, you have a memebers of a reasonably identifiable group who constitute the enemy. You note I said "members" of the group, not the group itself. But, to ignore the obvious for the sake of political correctness if ludicrous in the extreme. As I recall, El Al, the nation airline of Isriel, has openly profiled it's passengers for many, many years and this practice has helped make it perhaps the most secure airline in the world. If racial profiling, which at most results in some minor inconvenience to innocent members of the group being profiled, results in the saving of even one American life, then logic dictates that racial profiling is not only proper, but necessary.

We don't have to racial profile. Anyone who doesn't eat the pork rind doesn't get on the plane.

But any information that allows possible suspects to be narrowed down from the total population needs to be used to assist law enforcement to deal with, and hopefully prevent, attacks on our Country.

Agreed on all the above- my point is we need to keep sight of *all* the threats to this country, both foreign and domestic. I believe the McVeigh and his ilk are just as dangerous, or even more so, as they are not as clearly defined an "enemy" as they should be in my book. There are many people, it seems, who think McVeigh was in whole or part justified in his actions- some even here on this board. That's scary, even more so than those who openly hate us.

How do you think the authorities caught some of the worst serial killers? By profiling. Most tend to be white middle age males and thats what they looked for. Why would they want to search 70yo grandmas? We have to use common sense. No other religion has declared war on the US. Shit I keep a tight grip on my sharpened pencils when I board the plane and non pork eaters(the other white meat) are aboard!

What's also scary is that you think the threat assessment is of the same magnitude. It's not. Militant Muslim terrorists have done more harm to us than all of our domestic groups and kooks combined since the second world war (McVeigh, the KKK and aryan groups, Black groups, anarchists, puerto rican seperatists, you name it). You can throw in all of Europe's as well... In your "book" the focus will always be on the white guy, in all discussions, at all times. [;)]
