When Is Racial Profiling Wrong?

In whatever area of the country you lived, you knew that there was a group of people from a specific nationality or religion that were posing a danger or committing crimes, would it not make sense to target them in your investigation?

If you were the police in New York City after the 9/11 attack and you were informed that there were other Muslims in your area that were planning other attacks, would it not be prudent and proper to investigate and monitor the Muslim community in general?  You would want to know who is saying what about possible attacks and the only way to gather that information is to focus your investigation on Muslims.  This could be defined by some as racial profiling and thus an illegal practice.

If you were the police in a southwestern state and knew that 95% of the illegal drug traffic was being carried out by Hispanics, wouldn’t it make sense to focus your investigation towards Hispanics crossing the border?  And if you knew that thousands of Hispanics were illegally crossing the border into the US, wouldn’t it make sense to focus your border protection efforts on Hispanics in the area?  This could be defined by some as racial profiling and thus an illegal practice.

If you were the police in a city that had a predominantly black population and you had information telling you that a rash of crimes were being committed by young adult male blacks, wouldn’t you need to focus your investigation against male young adult blacks?  This could be defined by some as racial profiling and thus an illegal practice.

If you were the police in an area that was experiencing a rash of home break-ins and sexual assaults and you had information that they were being committed by a gang of teenage white males, wouldn’t you focus your investigation towards teenage white males?  No one would consider this to be racial profiling, rather it would be proper police work.

This is a growing concern for law enforcement agencies around the nation.  Where is the dividing line between proper law enforcement procedures and illegal racial profiling?

In Arizona, the federal government is going after Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for racial profiling against Hispanics, when in truth they are responsible for the majority of crimes in the area.

In New York City, Muslim clerics are boycotting the city’s interfaith breakfast because of supposed racial profiling that has taken place since 9/11.  In fact, the NY police department with help from federal agencies has thwarted 14 Muslim terrorist plots and arrested or killed 44 Muslim terrorists in the process.  How many lives have they saved by their racial profiling?

Civil liberties groups have gone to extreme measures to make proper law enforcement measures more difficult to carry out because someone who was innocent was offended for being stopped and questioned.  People want a safe country but at the same time they don’t want law enforcement agencies to be able to conduct the necessary investigations and surveillance to provide for that safety.

Well, I’m a white male and when I was a teenager, I and my three best friends were detained by the local police for breaking and entering into a home and stealing guns, television and other items.  We fit the profile of four white teenage males in the general area.  Yes, I was scared to death as I was being threatened with jail for crimes I didn’t commit.  Before the police finished booking the four of us, two other officers arrested 4 teenage white males in the process of burglarizing another house.

Had we been black and the description was of four black teens, civil rights advocates would have been at the police station screaming racial profiling.  But since we were white, the issue never came to anyone’s mind.  I harbor no ill feelings towards the police department for arresting us as I probably would have done the same thing had I been the police officers.

It seems that the charge of racial profiling only applies to non-white and non-Christian groups.  It’s okay to use race and religion to profile whites and Christians, but not anyone else.

Don’t get me wrong, I do believe that there needs to be some boundaries to prevent law enforcement from abusing their privileges, but at the same time, they have to be allowed to do their job.  If a certain ethnic or religious group is responsible for breaking the law in your area, then law enforcement must be allowed to focus their attention on that specific group.  After all, what would everyone say if the police spent their time and resources investigating all ethnic and religious groups when their information pointed to only one?

    Common sense walked out the door when progessivism walked in.
    Perfect example is the TSA. They molest children, the elderly and even nuns, but muslims get through with barely a look.

      I agree, but what can we expect when we have a closet muslim president? Vote wisely in 2012!

      • LicketySplit1

        Meh....i thought he came outta THAT closet a long time ago. White middle class males are the ones in trouble here. We work, pay our taxes and have the common sense to call a spade a spade. PC is not and i repeat is NOT a prerequisite for fair play in our society any longer. Islam is a culture of hate. Christianity by any color is evil in the progressive eye. Its time for the pendulum to swing back to where it belongs. If you do the crime..you do the time regardless of race or creed or color. No more crying foul because your ethnicity gets in the way of our desire for justice!!

        This administration has divided this country like no other before it. The AG of this country has single handedly destroyed the mantra of fair play and should be hung like the traitor he is.

        • Patriot Twentyfour Seven

          The Federal Government (BATFE and others higher-up) should all be held responsible for the thousands of deaths that have resulted from their actions. People who were known gun runners and known straw purchasers were given the opportunity to purchase thousands of firearms (in-hopes that our government could somehow blame the guns and deaths on honest Americans, and further restrict our freedom to bear arms). A man without firearms is only a slave to the government. We The People Can Stand-Up, And Cause Change To Happen. We Can Change Our Government, or remove the traitors from their self-appointed higher than thou positions.

          Apparently you either weren't alive or just weren't paying attention when the Reagan began pitting Americans against each other in earnest with the Anti-American supply-side theory of economics.

        • The Truth

          HUH? I was alive and no such thing occurred; Reagan did not pit Americans against one another. He was know as "The Great Unifier." You are obviously referring to your hero obama, but liberals lie. Maybe you can't recall but Reagan turned around a worst economic recession in just three years while obama has only brought about massive and excessive spending, driving future generations into debt. Try defending obama's economic policies. What a joke! Ha ha ha!

      Excellent reply,icouldahad. Common sense is a rare commodity in today's Progressive thinking society. It seems we have become super sensitive to anything that seems controversial. In today's world, anyone who disagrees with President Obama's failed policies, is immediately tagged a Racist, and hater of Blacks. Truly amazing.

      Everyone complains, no one does anything about it except for voting. They think their vote will change Washington. HA. Obama has already won the next election. He has or will have over one billion dollars in his war chest and with that he can buy all the votes he needs. Dead people will vote. Infants and small children will vote. Dogs, cats, horses, fish and pigs will vote. Millions of democrats will vote several times. Illegal aliens will vote. Think the FBI will investigate? If THE BOSS commands you to look the other way or be killed, you will look the other way. Those who don't will wind up dead in automobile "accidents" or will be shot in an "accidental" shootings. There will be "accidental" drownings and "accidental" falls and pretty soon the whistle blowers will get it. Keep your mouth shut and you will live. Spill the beans and you will die. It will be that simple. The Dumocraps are desperate to keep a strangle hold on this great country of ours. Our only hope is in Christ.

      "Profiling" has gotten a nasty name because the people it targets on are the most vocal on their 'supposed innocence". Blacks when arrested use the race card muslims use Islamophobia even when there is good and clear evedence that some one of that group has committed a crime. As long as the Police are polite and follow good guidelines on how and why and when I would have little or no problems being hauled in myself if the evedence was clear. If muslims are hijacking aircraft look to them not little old ladies that do not fit the profile and if you have a problem with illegals you are not likely to pick me up I am German old and bald not hispanic young and yelling that my rights have been violated

      • toosmarttovoteGOP

        Someone in EVERY group has committed a crime; black, white, Asian, Indian, Hispanic, Christian, Jew, Muslim, Hindu, Taoist, atheist, Confuciuist, etc. Even with tight controls the system is easily and frequently abused. The best way is to have evidence of the crime, not guilt by profiling.

        • psiEnergos

          "Easily and frequently abused" - other than mostly baseless accusation from people afraid of what 'might happen, please cite several examples please. I hear this argument, yet when investigated I find the opposite. I find a plethora a people complaining they have been profiled without any real evidence (many who have not even been involved in stops, searches or profiles themselves, they just 'fear it'). So this argument is a pure hyperbole rant. Secondly, regardless of what every OTHER group has done, the statistics have shown year after year the MAJORITY of terrorist attacks were committed by Muslims. This gives weight to the argument that maybe they might be worth a look (just one example, but an easy one in this case).

    • godaddyjoe

      what is raceism ? we all are the human race ? i have noticed the most of us who cry foul are the very ones promoteing it! as far as blk raceism ? they create their own . no one gives a fart about what they complain about only that they do not care about us the same as we care about them. i overheard in one of their churches in dc that i was repairing the ac that the teach them to do what they want and on sunday CHRIST will forgive them .isn't that just peachy..i'm american with italian decent and i suffered as much hazeing as blks did growing up poor but i was taught sticks and stones will break my bones but word can't unless the words were directed to harm me.so pack a gun and have fun the world doesnot care about you.

    • http://www.BornAgainHeathens.com Tim BAH

      If race, color, religion or gender are part of the profile it is part of the profile. Or it is like looking for short, skinny, bald guys as Santa. It is all about conditioning. "You vill get in line, and you vill be searched. and you vill like it, and you vill demand more of it!"

      It "pitches" me OFF that minorities expect "special treatment" because "WE" have more than "THEY" do! The land of opportunity is open to ALL people! If you don't have a skill, go back to school! If you don't have a "clue", the Liberal Left
      will GIVE you one! It's called "VOTING for Government support by voting the one who has PROMISED you MORE "free rides"! It reminds me of a dear ladys words; Young girl complaining loudly that school was to hard! She said, " I'LL be thirty years old before I finish school! To which the Lady replied; "How old will you be if you DON'T"! If you are disabled,
      handicapped, or CAN'T work because of health issues it a different thing altogether!!, But, A young mother, bored STUDENT, uninspired or just plain LAZY Government Dependant, just ask yourself if you want to spend the rest of your life living off OTHERS hard work instead of earning your OWN way?

      The TSA is the result of conservatism which kicked GOOD sense out the door a VERY long time ago.

      • icouldahad

        Not conservatism. Sorry. Progressive propaganda has twisted the meaning of every word we once knew the meaning of. The Republicans were once considered Liberals until the democrats highjacked that word. And now a new elitist group is highjacking the word 'conservative' to include warmongering, but war 'conserves' nothing.
        That is why it is so very important that we look to the wisdom espoused by our Founding Fathers for guidance. They were learned, moral men. One of the greatest quotes for our time is from James Madison who said,
        "If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy."
        Every American needs to learn, understand and repeat this to every warmonger they encounter.

      I am so sick of the complaints from ACLU, Cair, etc, about racial profiling. If they are the ones that are committing the crimes then they should be the ones targeted. Why don't we have the backbone to tell all the complainers that this is America, and this is the way things are done. Who cares what hey think? They're just making inroads for their own ends.

    • Carol

      I couldn't agree with you more if I tried but this is not what is happening every since Obama administration because he is Muslim and an illegal so they are not touched because he has a aunt and uncle that are here illiegally but he legalized them and they are receiving a lot of money and housing to stay here free.

  • screeminmeeme

    Profiling is smart and necessary if the police/FBI are serious about catching lawbreakers, especially terrorists whose goal is to take out as many people as possible. If 6 foot, blond, female Swedes were responsible for 911, then I'd be honing in on tall, females Swedes. But 911 was committed by young, male, Middle Eastern, followers of allah....as were ALL the previous acts of terror on Americans over the past 2 decades: the Cole, the Kohbar Towers, US embassies, the first attack on the Twin Towers in ''93, etc...so THOSE are the folks who need to be profiled, first and ruled out as perps.

    We MUST be willing to intelligently profile, as well as eyeing other suspicious, hostile, aberrant, anti-American behavior. (The OCCUPIERS come to mind. Look at the criminal climate which was created and the damage left in their wake just because politically correct officials refused to ENFORCE the LAW and make them disperse.) A millieu of anarchy is created when our own officials abdicate their responsibilites.

    • Edward j Smail

      All this big deal about racial profiling was brought about by the black people specifically the black criminal`s got tired of being busted and going to jail they got tired, and come up with this racial profiling ideal to purposely get society to excuse them and the "Law" to look the other way so they can continue to break the law they claimed it was breaking there "civil right`s" they claimed that the police where targeting them because of there color they where and are because there the majority of criminal`s out there breaking the law, "thus dont break the law you wont go to jail". Its sort of like the queer`s claim that they are gay because they where born that way, dont you see this is the lies these people use to sway society to there way of thinking.The gay`s said this to get protected under the civil right`s "game" too because they want society to look the other way to, they think that will make it allright when they get caught corn holing a little boy. We have to do thing to protect are selves and they dont want that!

      We all use profiling every day of our lives. We use it constantly. It is called REASONING. The only way you could avoid using it is to become mindless zombies moving only under direction from an overseer. The only way this could ever happen to humans is through chemical alteration to your mind. Think on this for a moment. Think about ths now, we have had flouride in our water for several decades. It didn't work fast enough for the overseers. Many of us have the information now about the effects and are eliminating it from our lives. They are finding other ways to hasten the decline. Plan D medicare and the pharmaceutical industry, USDA and GM in our food supply, Chem trails all over the world. HAARP. ETC. Adnauseum.

      • auntvick

        WAKE UP Use your reasoning ability to see that you are being led to servitude and debasement. These types of stories are the most of what you hear and see in your media. RACISM you are hearing it over and over and over again. Your psyche is being attacked for it's efficiency. You cannot reason in an unreasonable existance. Trying to think in the manner they are demanding, requires you to war with your own reason. Many men have already succumbed to this overload and are actually incapable of have their own thoughts. They are in fact possessed. Whether by something demonic or by evil men, matters not at all. Either way, you cannot reason with them. Go, have a conversation with people around you and realize how many of them will listen to reason.

      Profiling is the right way to go. The profiling is the method which makes Tel Aviv Airport safe. On the other hand, people get their government as they deserve. They are the ones to put it there. And if anyone thinks that it could change peacefully, it must be dreaming. In life to do something stupid is no problem. To undo it, is sometime almost impossible .

      Flying from London to USA in Dec 02, after flights were cancelled that week, of terror threats. I was appalled that I passed thru security without having to remove my shoes, and my bib overalls(metal) did not set the detectors off. I asked the wife if we should cancel our flight, until I got to the gate. The English directed everyone with olive skin to a seperate interveiw. I felt much better boarding the plane later.

    • CHinCT

      In my opinion, everyone who uses the term "racial profiling" is flat out wrong. The more proper trerm to use should be "Suspect Targeting", as that is what is being done. The racists have embedded the term racial profiling into our society and law enforcement needs to defend the practice of "suspect targeting" while also denouncing that they pacially profile..

      You guys do realize that Obama is running again? If you had to be certified to get on the ballot, by the sherrif who is against all you stand for, what would you do to get him out of the way?? In AZ., each county sheriff has to certify that all those on the ballot are citizens and entitled to run. get it? Obama's birth cert. is being investigated by Sherriff Joe. Joe must certify him and he hasnt so far. So? Call him a racist. Claim he violates rights. Throw up enough mud and hope some sticks to the walls.

  • screeminmeeme

    We live in a different time: one in which there are many with few inhibitions, a large sense of entitlement, and an intolerance of anyone who doesn't conform to their ideas. These all can and often do lead to criminal offenses in seeking ''what I want when I want it".......especially if that person is subservient to and influenced by the evil ideologies of Islam or marxism.

      Here in Louisville when a murder or any crime is committed the news tells they are looking for a black man or a white man. This is not racial profiling it is giving us a description of the type of person to look for. If we are looking for illegals on the Mexican border we are not looking for whit people but Mexicans.

        Islam is not a religion ether . When there is trouble and a white christian is involved the media and anyone else who wants to make trouble can say anything . Why not when it is a Muslim or a Black person . BECAUSE EVERY ONE IS AFRAID . OH MY GOD THEY WILL HAVE THEIR FEELINGS HURT. THEN THEY WILL BURN AND LOOT AND WHAT EVER .

        Case White man is walking down the street 4 black men attack him ,no reason just because , and put he guy in the Hospital . The Police get the 4 and arrest them . Charge assault. They go to court the 4 men say that the man they beat called them a name they did not like and file a complaint for a hate crime . Sharpeton and Jackson show up and the press . What happens ? Blacks go free and sue the city and the guy the almost killed cops get fired white guy goes to jail .
        Now change the case black man mugs white man but get beat . White man is arrested charged attempted murder and HATE crimes . Only the press shows up and tells every one what a bad guy he is and he goes to jail 20 years for what stopping a mugging ,his own.
        Answer ,get a licence to carry and if you are mugged SHOOT them ,many times . Bullets are color blind and deed men tell no lies.

Did everyone think that by showing up there 2 or 3 times the corrupt and entrenched politicians, backed by the Chicago thug machine and the left leaning press would change?
      Actual change will need ACTIVISM, the type the left uses to promote its causes. But it seems the right has gone to sleep. For that, come Jan 2013 there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth, when the kenyan dictator is once more given the power to govern... and that will be the end of the US as we know it!

      Muslims are offended by any and all of our rule, laws etc. Over the years they have complained about EVERYTHING as if it was 'just' created to offend them. They play the victem and try to guilt trip the US (and it works because our politicos are such politically correct cowards. They make demands on Catholic colleges to provide them with a prayer room, Catholic colleges owe them NOTHING, they sued Lowe's for pulling out of supporting their TV show because it tanked (who wants to put money into a loser), the mosque at the Twin Towers is the height of their brazenous. And after ALL they've done in Europe (will also do in the US), they get hurty feelers over counter terrorism efforts which are perfectly legal? I wouldn't trust a Muslim if his tongue came notarized. Islam is evil..as is the Qur'an - and you are what your promote, read.. Read what they have done to England, Australia, Holland, Sweden etc. Coming here, too, if you let it.

      • Robert

        Yes and no . The type of crime is divided up to some point by race .
        Look at the people all ready in jail. When a race is no more than 15-20% of the population as a whole but make up 75% of the people in Jail that should say something .
        We have to many people in Jail . Anyone on death row for more than 3 years should be put out of our misery . They are not worth the money it takes to keep them alive . They can be organ donor . You are convicted of a capital crime and get the death sentence you have 2 appeals .
        Bring back the chain gang and the prison farms .

    • Sarge

      Amen! whether it's black, hispanic, 'mooselimbs' or whites...if they commit the crime, then do whatever it takes to put them behind bars! "Racial profiling" is just another 2 words that minorities created to justify discrimination that they think is being done against them. If we as whites don't watch out, we will soon be the minority in the USA! I have friends of all races and they agree with me about the aforementioned statements! GOD Bless Us All......

    When the known facts point to specifics then they should focus on what they know, if the perpatrator was said to be very tall, would you want them to waste their time looking at short people? If the evidence shows the person is dark skinned would you want them investigationg albinos. Profileing is necessary and yes race, religion, and all other charistics if known must be used.

    It should be a crime not to profile when 1) a terrorist act is done in the name of Allah (100% of terrorist acts are committed by Muslims aged 20-30); 2) a black man is murdered (70% of all murders are committed by black males 18-30 years of age, and 90% of those murders are committed against other blacks).

    It doesn't bother me one bit that Muslims are boycotting an interfaith breakfast. In fact -- I am glad they are not there.

Just keep an eye on them, PROFILE them and watch out that they aren't out causing destruction while others are at the breakfast.

        I often wonder why Mexicans call themselves Hispanic, when none of them come from Hispanola? Can it be that they are not wanting to live in Mexico? If so, why do they come up here for work, and then send the money they earn, back to family in Mexico?
        As far as Muslims/Islamic are concerned, neither of those terms can be, as noted, tags for a race of people. They are a religious group. And if they are causing trouble, then they have a choice, when they come near me. Either treat me as their best friend, or get the Hell out of Dodge. I don't put up with any one who uses their religion to try and take what is mine, or try and make me believe they are better than I am.
        And a 9mm parabellum round often cures their religious outlook. Permanently!

    Racial Profiling is wrong when the police are told to be on the lookout for a bank robber, who is described as twenty something, 6 ft, red hair, and they stop all people who are oriental.

    Including race in a CRIMINAL profile is NEVER wrong when the race of the criminal is known, or reasonably suspected. A rational definition of racial profiling would be listing the characteristics that identify someone as a member of a given race. By that definition, NO ONE opposes racial profiling.

      How can the race of a criminal be "reasonably suspected"? Is it because there are crimes that some races don't commit?

  • Guest

    As a physician, I profile everybody that walks thru the door and down the hall. I immediately start narrowing the "problem" down as soon as I see them. Male ( not pregnant, not ovarian cancer or cyst, possible botox candidate, etc ). White male ( same as above, plus plus, unlikely sickle cell disease ) from eastern europe and jewish ( possible crohns dz ) .
    Black male ( elevated hypertension risk, possible sickle cell trait/dz). You get the point.. we profile and use race as one of the factors in the everyday business of dealing with people. If we did not do so, we wold waste a tremedous anount of time, money and resources -- just like the government does..

    • Cameron

    The idiocy of Liberals, socialist and communist, and progressives in this country defies any wonder of nature! How so? If you go by their assessment you should not even differentiate on a birth certificate as to what their race is! Yes! If you take their view point than if you register them as Black you have put him in a specified class group, if you write them down as Hispanic you may be indicating they are illegals and so on.
    I can imagine a police call from the dispatcher in about 5 more years...All units! All units.... We are looking for a possible male..not sure..don't to commit sexual profiling....about 5'6" but do not think I am profiling them as short....Dark hair.....sorry cannot say anything about kinky, curly or straight that might imply racial profiling.....he has a complexion but we cannot say what is it that might infer ethnic profiling...and the is on foot but we are not profiling him as being poor or homeless... He might be dangerous but we do not want to profile as a criminal!

  • http://www.drbilllemoineandassociates.com DrBillLemoine

    It all boils down to 'probable cause' for law enforcement. Just because a particular group is affiliated with a certain crime more than another group, that's not sufficient cause to stop, detain or question anyone/everyone identified from that group without 'cause'.

    Everyone profiles others as a natural part of living and associating with others. It's natural. Official profiling also happens, but there's a different standard from casual identification. Discrimination by official profiling isn't legal to protect the Constitutional right to be free of unreasonable searches. Cross that line and you are liable to prosecution as a government official.

        Media may reinforce bigotry or biases but it's learned first at home and then from our friends, if we are open to it. Once upon a time teachers were upper middle class women primarily and open-minded from culture and upbringing.

        Nowadays it's lower middle class and more men who grow up with un/undereducated families and friends and carry their bigotry into the classroom. More than just race or heritage, today it's economics as jobs are scarce, employers require special skills, moms specialize in children's soccer, scouts, dance classes with segregated groups, and minorities take any available job the middle class rejects.

        With more social media, America is more fragmented with hate and bigotry everywhere in the ether--harder to hide, or avoid. Just keep your cosmopolitan outlook as the world gets smaller and bigots come out of their closets.

    Profiling is fine. Racial profiling is not.

    It seems to me that Hispanics or Blacks is far too large a group for effective profiling. To me it is not appropriate for Blacks to get special treatment good or bad. Perhaps economically disadvantaged need special treatment whatever their race or religion. Hispancis are hardly a minority in the Southwest. To profile Hispanics is laughable. I live in New Mexico. It is a Hispanic State. How could anyone think of using being Hispanic as suggestive of anything? I am the minority here and I don't want to be profiled for being a gringo.

    The problem is Arizona goes far beyond racial profiling. Racial profiling and corruption often go together hint hint.

    Good police work does not require profiling. And profiling on aircraft simply forces al Qaeda to recruit those who would pass the screen. Check everyone.

    • terry

    • AVCurmudgeon

      If "profiling is fine", and race is part of the profile, then what makes it wrong?

      The cookie-cutter baseline profile for a serial killer is "white, between 25 and 35 ...." Is that not racial profiling? Is it not sexual profiling to be aware that there are few female serial killers, or few black or hispanic serial killers? Here's the juice: if race is relevant, there is nothing wrong with including it. If it is irrelevant, then it is wrong in part because it is racialist, and in part because it detracts from solving the crime.

      Tell me that the majority of people coming across the border illegally are not hispanic and I'll accept your point. Otherwise, you are bloviating.

      first of all Arizona is exactly right in it's approach on illegal immigration after all the government won't do it the Mexican government won't stop the flow of people coming here illegal so Arizona has to pay the cost not the Mexican government or even our own yet they won't allow the states to try and stop it if mexico pay attention on his own border and pay attention inside it's borders he wouldn't have time to come to america and complain after all if they are citizens of mexico he should take them back with him if he loves them so pay their way back to their countries and leave america be in peace.

This country will be much better off without them. If they want to live in a muslim country, they should go live in one, by force if necessary.

    Good Police work does require to certain degree of racial profiling. There is a thing of carrying it too far. However to handcuff the police and say you can not profile according to race is crazy.
    In the case of Al Qaeda which are you to profile since they are of all races.
    However if a race is entered you watch that person until you have problable Cause to effect an arrest. You do not pick them up unless there is more information other than race. Now we all now that some these people hand off their weapons to the little old ladies. This not just with Al Qaeda this is done by a lot of professional criminals as well.

  • Retired PA

    I'm a retired Border Patrol Agent. I experienced all the changes progressives brought onto law enforcement agencies. Congress granted authority to Immigration Officers to detain for questioning anyone they believed to not be a citizen or national of the U.S. Articulable facts are the bases for the formation of probable cause. At the border you must submit to questioning and provide proof of your legal status/identity. Away from the border it is not so simply to the untrained eye and mind. All non-citizens and foreign nationals are required to be in possession of documents that prove their legal status. Once an officer's suspicions are satisfied that a person is a non-citizen or foreign national he has the immediate authority to demand that person prove with documentation their legal status in order to not be further detained. Such authority requires officers to develop their suspicions based on articulable facts, such as inability to speak and understand English, physical appearance, ethnic traits, mode of dress, familiarity with basic American knowledge, etc...the list of factors is specific to each individual.

    Profiling is always acceptable. It is the basis of all police investigations. The only ones we ever hear anything about is when the police profile.

They determine where their base is at, what they have to do, what they shouldn't do but we define whatever we do to meet our needs. When they do it, its good political strategy.

    "profiling" is the very essence of investigation.
    When a Synagogue gets blown up you shouldn't center your investigation around Norwegians. That's just plain stupid. When people are yelling Allah akbar while killing people you don't waste resources going after Latinos. That's just plain stupid. When you have a white guy on a security can killing the guy behind the liquor counter you should not waste resources centering an investigation around black folk. That's pure idiocy!
    If you have a Dunk Latino committing vehicular homicide in a low rider, you shouldn't be looking for redheaded babes in a chic car. STUPID!
    If you have a community made up of Muslims and they teach wahabiism, and at the same time the culture within Islam is to keep your mouth shut when you know radicals and murderers are among you - lest you be beheaded, You should be applying 90% of your resource RIGHT THERE!

    Race is nothing but an identifier, not a predictor. If criminals seen during their get-aways were wearing baseball caps turned sideways, or green high-top tennis shoes, then I would look for people wearing those too. What I see is civil liberty groups (not) whining (enough) about what some members of their color/ethnicity sometimes do. The issue should be on the criminality and you would think that blacks or hispanics would have equal concern about the law but often don't. It's "blame whitey" for the laws we want to break, or using color/ethnicity as an excuse for bad behaviour. It's really about culture, or lack thereof, how people approach life in general and what they think they should be able to get away with (justifications.)

    I've heard the same story before from the Muslim community. Think now. While not all Muslims are Islamic terrorists, all Islamic terrorists are Muslims. Does it make sense to be looking at Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Taoists?

    When are we going to replace "political correctness" with common sense? For those who don't know, the definition of political correctness is as follows:

    Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    The left in its inherently corrupt designs to subvert the system is using their wickedly powerful weapon called PC to change the political and judicial landscape. Criminality will become something that only white people can be accused of. Everyone else is the result of white racism and hence, must be given a pass. Look at the abyssmal state of the prison system in CA. Since the state is bankrupt, it is too costly to incarcerate minorities and they are let loose or not even booked. Whites are targeted because they have money and will quickly pay up. Good is bad and bad is good. Welcome to the near total decimation of our beautiful country.

    Profiling is not wrong, and it should be used to discover possible terrorists at U.S. airports. We know that the people trying to bomb our airplanes are young Muslim men, so those facts should be used by the screeners. It is just freaking crazy to search old ladies and not young Arab men.

    I think eveone profiles every day in some way. From when you see a person with long hair, are nose rings. are droppy pants are color are nerbiohood. You get the feeling of safety are i better get out of this area. To me thats profileing and SMART most times

  • carlosjnegron

    Profiling is wrong when someone uses it to deny others what should not be denied, simply because of a prejudice.

    Some examples of this are mortgages and services, however, because of past egresious acts, our society has adopted political correctness as a panacea.

    I am of Puerto Rican descent and if I were to to be referred t,o as a Puerto Rican American it would be impossible for anyone to identify me. (by the way just think for a moment, what does a Puerto Rican look like?)

    To show you how inane this political correctness is, the actress Charlize Theron was born in South Africa and is now an American citizen...she is therefore an African American.

    • Anna

      Mira Negro I missed your post too...soy Boricua...too many of these people no saben lo que dicen hope you read spanish

    • Jennie

      I am also Puerto Rican but first and foremost I am an American and proud of it. Thats all you have to say, you are an 'American of Puerto Rican descent'. its ridiculous to use Cherlize Theron as an example. She would simply be a naturalized American born in South Africa. I've never been turned down for services, mortagages, etc. I would think it be due too your credit rating, and not good references. Y Anna yo se lo que estas deciendo pero no estoy de acuerdo. No seas tan sensible. So you're saying too many of these people here 'don't know what they're saying'. I think they do and I agree with them.

      Go to Arizona and see for yourself how infiltrated they are with the illegals. They're easily recognized by the way they speak and their mannerism. There is a difference between an illegal immigrant's appearance and a American who is Hispanic. Profiling is important in this day and age.....BYW, I was in Puerto Rico a few years back and discovered Puerto Ricans there are just as prejudice of Americans.

      • Anna

        Jennie fellow boricua...Im afraid you need to brush up on your Spanish...Sensible is not being used appropriately to express what you are trying to say. But, that's OK...I have lived in the several states of this Union and in Puerto Rico. I just did not go visit relatives...I actually lived there as a child and as an adult. If you knew the history of Puerto Rico you might think twice about your answer... And by the way there is a saying Two Wrongs does not produce a Right" re-check what you wrote...Te deseo un Prospero Neuvo Ano...iqual que a este Pais...it might be possilbe if Ron Paul is elected as President.

  • Bill

    So if we have a serial killer on the loose are we not going to look at middle aged white men as suspects because that would be profiling? Give me a break with this anti-profiling for the sake of political correctness. Any crime committed requires profiling people who fit a certain description. Get over the "my feelings got hurt" bs and get past it!

  • drljr

    The screams of racial, political, or religious profiling all go to the concept that everyone but Whites are victims. The people doing the screaming are simply people who don't want to take responsibility for their actions. Or don't want the specific grouping they identify with to be held accountable for their actions. We have a word for this type of attitude - hypocrite.

    Police work involves profiling of a wide range of specific items. And some of these items are ethnicity, apparent skin color (i.e. light skinned, tanned, etc), hair and political and religious affiliation. And anyone who tries to say Islam is not not violent has ignored its history and teachings.

    I remember, a "big to do" in New Jersey back in the 1990s related to the Turnpike. The police were stopping black drivers from out of state. The screams by the "Left" and "I am a victim because of my race" advocates was deafening. Lost in the screams was the simple fact the FBI reported that illegal drugs were being brought north in certain types of cars from Florida and other southern States and that the drivers were Black. But of course these little facts were ignored by the screamers.

  • http://www.billslaterministries.org Bill Slater

    Profiling occurs all the time, across all race/ethnic/genders, e.g., "The _____ Bank has just been robbed. The suspect robber is a white male, approximately 6 ft tall, approximately 30 years of age with brown hair worn in a ponytail." That is profiling - police won't be looking for a black or white male (or female) 5ft 5in tall, about 65 years old, and bald. Put another way, if 9/11 had been carried out by Amish terrorists (an obvious exaggeration for effect, any Amish viewers) and law enforcement folks were not looking for bearded white males wearing black, flat-brimmed hats, they would be derelict in their duty. Re: SantaFeSteve, profiling is actively used at Ben Gurion Airport. How many Israeli plans have been hijacked? The answer would be, none.

  • cheryl jessup

    I would get rid of the TSA and hire Israel's who so this for a living. They have no terrorism on their planes. They know their business. It's just like hiring experts from Ins.

  • frank

    anything to be indifferent so they can continue to do anything they want,it is out of control because the man in the white wants change and distruction,and anyone who believes otherwise he wants out of the way,he needs to go and control and laws need to be pushed or america is daed as we know it,god have mercy

  • Robert, TX

    First off, your question is wrong. Profiling has been a part of criminal science since ancient times. Remember the criminal science degree? Now, all you can get is a criminal justice degree - and I suppose it is a BS. Racial profiling is a term that was invented by militant racists trying to get out of jail. When you figure out that this type of person is going to commit these types of crimes in this area, at this time, then common sense tells you to put a patrolman (remember those) in that area, at that time, to make the bust. Like this: if you see a suspicious Muslim male at an airport you report him so that security can find out who he is - and check him out - because, as it turns out, a lot of Muslim men have hijacked or blown up airplanes. I found a blog where a young, white male in Dallas, TX (in 1965) was stopped by a policeman in downtown Dallas. The cop wanted to know what he was up to and hauled him in. Turns out he had run away and was preparing to join the Marine Corps. Now that cop was doing his job.

    Profiling, racial and otherwise, is an absolutely necessary facet of the discriminatory logic carried out in the intellect. We all engage in profiling as a natural process. One example is the parent who applies a curfew to a teen who just began dating. The parent just profiled his teenager as someone who has low ability to handle unlimited freedom, and the parent uses his own experience to verify his profile. Humans beings profile everything from foods to geography. We learn to use our senses according to learned profiles that alert us to potential hazards in our path, from pot holes to a crazy person wearing a winter coat in July. Human beings must continually engage in profiling for self-preservation and the protection of those that are dear to us, including to our country.

    The Communists/Socialists who wanted us to stop profiling did not want us to think. We have all heard about our "Dumbed Down" society. Much of the so-called "Dumbing Down" has occurred by malicious attacks on profiling and hate speech. Profiling is necessary to avoid the extinction of the human race. As voters, we seek to avoid putting a psycho in the White House because he might push the infamous "Red Button". By making that decision, we just profiled the president as someone who must be of sound mind and reasonable spiritual integrity. Socialists and others who wish to control require a citizenry who does not think. The KGB termed the people who promulgate nonsense such as the "War on Profiling" and the "War Against Hate Speech" as 'Useful Idiots'.

    The Socialists want a thoroughly degraded "Dumbed Down" society, Muslims among them, because many Muslims desperately want the nanny state they had in Pakistan, in addition to Shariah Law. Is it any wonder that most of the Eastern countries are so poverty stricken? Most of the Eastern countries are Socialist, and their citizens are mired in Socialist jealousy and self-pity. When Capitalism and Capitalists are assigned into a negative profile, citizens cease to be as proactive in determining their own fates; therefore, we can assign to them the collective profile of abject poverty. We then make the observation, "Pakistanis live in poverty." Muslim clerics scream profiling because they erroneously believe they will flourish under the control of a Socialist police state. In the end Socialism is as self-defeating for Muslims as it is for Christians, The Muslim clerics haven't yet harvested Socialist devastation to their religion - but it is coming.

    Even animals profile. Some dogs profile anyone who comes into their yard as a predator. Other dogs profile everyone as a friend, and still others only give respect if their owners are around and friendly. People who do not want anyone else profiling them are dubious relationships, perhaps even subversives. Anti-Profilers are manipulative, seeking to achieve a dishonest artificial relationship at the expense of a person or race, ultimately at the expense of all of society. Since profiling is necessary for self-preservation, Anti-Profilers are deadly dangerous. Those opposed to profiling should be examined for their suitability as subjects for a new episode of Animal Kingdom - profiled as a lower-life form, some sort of amoeba or protozoa.

  • mickey

    If a religous group swears to destroy all christians americans and jews could it or should it be ok to profile them since that is their doctrine?

  • David in MA

    If a cop is looking for lawbreakers there is no profileing
    If a cop is looking for ethinic percieved lawbreakers, maybe
    If a cop is simply looking for a certain group to bust, ya.
    BUT, isn't it strange thet the populations with the most crime are the ones who scream racial profiling.....
    Ya, right!
    And America has become so PC so as not to offend anyone we have become a nation of the lawless.
    In this area China has it right. Break the law, found guilty and taken out behind the barn and SHOT!

  • Rocky

    So, of witnesses report that the bank robber was a tall, thin white man, with red hair and wearing blue jeans, should the police consider all persons as potential suspects? Would it be wrong for them not to pursue further investigation of black men? Of course not.

    When crimes are committed it's totally NECESSARY to do a decent job of policing to concentrate on those who fit the profile of the offender.

  • j.randall

    They have to use profiling ,they do it on american citizens all the time, race should have nothing to do with it, thats the only way you can really enforce the law Thats how they catch the worst of the worst. The only ones bit--in about it are the lawbreakers and anyone in this country illegally. This is americas law , they have used it for years, If foreigners dont like it ,go back to where you come from

  • Don DeHoff

    Profiling is and always has been an effective police tool. If there is an agile rapist running amuck, it would be foolish and a waste of time to nab the old guy with a wooden leg who was panhandling on the street corner. Likewise, if a group of white teen-age kids were vandalizing property, the police should concentrate on such groups. It is probably true that in many cases the police could be more diplomatic in their efforts and advise all that they talk as to what is is the problem and ask for cooperation. Unfortunatly it is also true that many people will intentionally mislead the police as to who the real offenders are. One would think that it is obvious that shielding criminal gangs and groups fosters the "group problem".

I get sick and tired of these thin skinned minorities always crying foul when they get picked up by the police. It's a known fact that more crimes are committed by minorities. Why shouldn't police be able to profile groups that are known to commit a higher percentage of crimes. Which group of people are coming across our southwest border illegally. Hispanics. Why shouldn't the police be able to profile hispanics if they are the ones that are perpatrating the crimes.Sheriff Joe Arpaio is doing his job period. If hispanics don't like it, they need to tell their illegal relatives to stop stealing across our border. If you don't like the way you are treated here GO HOME.

    This racial profiling is political correctness gone amok. People should be outraged at what is happening to this Country.
    If an ethnic group is found to be the perpetrator of certain crimes and the police are going after that specific group it is not profiling. This is so out inleft field and I for one born in this country and am 68 years old am just disgusted with this ridiculous turn of events. The "sheeples" is this country are not standing up to this force of tolerance and diversity, and so called political correctness. The ACLU is nothing but a left wing organization trying to inflict their views on everyone else and people cannot voice any opinion any more because you will be villified or called a racist or a homophobic. I still thought we were in a free country and the "First Amendment" is my right to free speech, but the progressives and the socialist Democrats don't want that. We do not need the Government to tell me how and why I think they way I do. What has happened to this Country and what will happen if this Admministration & the Socialists in it are not defeated. People need to be aware that Obama is a fake & a fraud.

    If you are in the "proximity" of the crime and you happen to be the "race" of the suspect, and LOOK similar in size or dress, that is plenty of probable cause.

If they do understand, it is a crime on their part as they are dismantling our society with this BS. Proximity is plenty enough reason to suspect!

They are members of the human race. Orientals are generally yellow-hued. They are members of the human race. Caucasians are generally white. They are members of the human race. Middle-easterners are generally olive-hued. They are members of the human race.

    All this talk about racial profiling is nothing but Newspeak political correctness, which is a Marxist concept. We had better get back to becoming the melting pot of the world and forget multiculturalism. I for one am an American, and proud of it.

  • Montreed

    It was a proven methodology for federal and big city policing agency in the 80's. There was even a job title; a profiler. In fact, the concept was so popular at the time, there were tv shows idolizing the whole process of criminal profiling.

  • freeamericausa

    According to Obama, and Holder. Anyone who dares to disagree with anything they say is instantly accused of racial profiling. CORRECTION...anyone who dislikes, or disagree's with Obama or Holder IS A RACIST, TERRORIST.
    Those are not my words. Obama's Administration operates under those guidelines. They have been recorded SAYING SO.

      I guess to them -then I must be a very big threat-like one of those huge ICBM's in the silos of Cuba aimed at washington dc-I have not seen any suspicious kooks yet but I would not trust a traitor to not be paranoid of Patriotic actions against blatant treason

    Profiling is only as good as the person doing it, if your doing to harrass certain groups then its wrong. But its not wrong when a police officer sees 4 know gang members riding up and down the street of another gangs territory even if all four are black,white,blue or red.

  • jstc

    'Profiling' is never wrong. If witnesses, for instance, said a tall, thin blonde-haired Caucasian man robbed a bank, should the cops go searching for a short, fat, hispanic woman? Let's get back to using a little common sense before the government outlaws it as a 'hate crime' (and when the government starts outlawing emotions, by the way, that's when totalitarianism is really in charge!)

    Muslim women in Burka's get a free pass.....No touching and no x raying.....It is against their faith to do so!.....What a disgust TSA has become!

    • no hippe chick

      Ok, so if I wear a burka, I don't have to go thru security and can get to the airport an hour before my flight?
      Good to know, anyone know where to get a burka?

  • Jen

    If I can be stopped and searched TWICE for having a hip transplant, than by golly muslims should be searched as well. After all they're more dangerous than I could ever be.

  • Mary

    Double speak! Investigating crimes and criminals is NOT racial profiling. Only those who are guilty or have something to hide would object to LAWFUL investigations. Everyone has at some time in their life been asked to present proper identification for legal purposes. This gambit called racial profiling is ONLY to promote the taking away of our GOD given liberties.

  • Doug Rodrigues

    Liberalism = "Alice in Wonderland" crazy logic. At best, "Catch 22" crazy logic. Anybody who saw the movie would agree.

  • Juan

    If I am robbed by a White man, I do not want the police looking for a Black, Muslim, Hispanic etc. I want them looking for a White man. On the other hand, if our country is attacked and a muslim cleric in this country supports overthrow of the US government, I do not want them hunting a White, Hispanic, Black etc., I want the law to go after the muslims!

  • Gerd

    A woman was raped down the street a while back. I think they only looked at male suspects. I am outraged!

  • Jennie

    Just recently in my community, a criminal being chased for committing a crime shot the policeman. The criminal, who was black, was finally caught by other cops, cuffed and put into the patrol car. He stopped breathing for reasons unknown and pronounced dead. The NAACP quickly got involved and demanded to know why the criminal died. Turns out he suffered from asthma, was on drugs and when apprehended while running, he had trouble breathing and his heart gave out. No matter that the white cop was fighting for his life in the hospital, their main objective was that the black guy had died and they wanted justice. Talk about reverse racism. As far as I am concerned the NAACP should be completely dismantled and defunded. They're getting way to big and dangerous for their britches....

  • AVCurmudgeon

    And what do you call it when the administration opposes voter ID laws, or neutral primaries, essentially on the ground that blacks are too stupid to figure it out for themselves?

    "I was arrested for drunk driving the other night, but it was bogus. I happen to know that the cops were arresting everyone driving down that particular sidewalk that night, and that's profiling and that's wrong." -- Ron White

    Simple answer....NEVER! It never failed me once in 25 years.

  • mesaman

    Profiling is a natural process of cognitive processing in the human brain. It is one of the simple ways of organizing the world into meaningful schemas. We use it in the same way the gestaltists suggested it 80 years or so ago. Sadly some pseudo-intellect, presuming to represent the rights of some of the more vocal minority members, concluded that profiling was racially motivated stereotyping and thusly good people were lumped together with the bottom feeders. Sadly too is the fact that the pendulum has swung far to the left and democrats have taken this as their credo, their banner, and their mission in life, their "Political Correctness. Now far too many people are criticized, and demeaned as the democrats trumpet this newly found flag of courage. The scumbags.

    If you got mugged by a Black guy would you look in a white area? Get real people. If a religion said to kill any body other then your religion, would you not keep watch on them. If you said that you hate someone, isn't that my freedom of speech?

  • heylottylotty

    I have to agree that if a witness sees a white person with one leg that it would be proper (and legal) to include those features in a bolo (be on look out). However that does NOT mean every non-dark skinned, one-legged person in the city should be jailed or even questioned. There should be a little more evidence than that. Rounding up "all the usual suspects" fits in that catagory. But, other than black people, mexicans, and "look likes" who has gotten their bloomers in a wad??? Let the law do their job, for goodness sakes. It has become a way for some people to get preferential treatment when they do not deserve it. Unfortunately we (I am also guilty) have not complained loud or long enough to the right people (including the press) about "certain inalienable rights" that we should A L L have. It is becoming more and more evident that too many people have found use after use of the racial excuse. It is way too easy to try to be a little more like common folk in American than to seek the extreme to get noticed and then smear it in everyone elses faces.

    This is why it is time for all Americans to start taking responsibility for their own lives ,property and families . An armed citizen is a free man an unarmed citizen is a: the choice is yours ,A SLAVE , OR A VICTIM . You are attacked in your home act and stop the problem THEN AND ONLY THEN CALL 911 .
    NO PROFILING JUSTICE and you save a lot of tax payers money and time .

  • StevenI

    The Ground Zero Mosque, paid with our tax dollars is delinquent on it's rent. Where did those millions go? Probably overseas to fund terrorism. The TSA is forbidden from checking Muslims. That is stupid. If you know that Muslims bombed a building, would you frisk 80 yr old non-Muslim women? Check all of check none.

  • light spreader

    Long ago there was a guy who said, "I am so cool and beautiful and smart; I should be the ruler".
    There was another guy who never bragged about himself, but became the servant of all; this guy threw the other guy out.
    There's nothing wrong with targeting and throwing evil men and the influence behind them out.

    Of course to do this; you must know the difference.

  • bill bartolone

    I agree with you 100 percent. The problems always come when one part of society doesn't have that "check and balance" to assure the leaders don't get out of control "when trying to police right". This site "I feel" is to help show a fair people's balance, "to assure the right justice is being done to others", and to make sure all is being regulated right (I respect you?). It is said "all people get out of control if you let them" (including the regulator's and enforcers), this is why we have regulations from leaders also like God Father Politics, to explain or help others understand issues? I like that we have groups of people that keep are neighborhoods safe, I don't think they need to fine people for anything besides hurting others, but that is a different issue. I hope people do see the respect toward all others that America does show, it is a great country!.

  • Patrioticnut

    Face it, our country has gone to the crapper since political correctness and affirmative action began. If our law enforcement cannot racially profile then they cannot do their job in an efficient manner. Stop all the PC bull and we'll be able to regain some sanity. Oh, but we may offend some group. Tough!

  • Berengaria

    I profile people everyday of my life and will continue to do so.. If I see a group of four blacks (male or female), coming near me, I will walk across the street to avoid their slurs,etc. and I will do the same if I see more than two middle-eastern looking males or females coming near me. This is now a very different country than the one I grew up in, and those two groups, along with hispanics need to be profiled by every American. Thank you, Berengaria

    In Morocco, the head of the Moroccan Association for Jurisprudence Research stirred both outrage and controversy when he issued a fatwa allowing muslim men to have sex with their just-deceased wives under the pretext that nothing in Islam prohibits sex with corpses.

    The United States Printing Office is about to publish a 1456 page Manual on Profiling proceedures. It weighs 27 lb and has a handy two wheeled transportation cart for ease in transporting this vital information source re: PROFILING By DUMMIES.
    Due to the fact that the US treasury is flat broke and in the hole some 40-50 trillion Dollars, this new offering from the US Printing Office will be available for those who have a stash of Silver or Gold coins or Bullion. As you know the Post Office is about to go belly-up, so you will need to piik up your copy at the loading dock behind the Office Building. The price of this issue is based on page number, or one dollar per page(in Silver or Gold).

    This is so very logical and contains so much common sense, it'll probably never catch on. You see, we had a way of life that gave everyone the opportunity to succeed. But, bit by bit that's going away because the majority of people cannot be bothered to follow what's happening. Wake up Americans, before America goes away!

  • one angry expat

    So much BS, all this politically correctness. The man in the White House got there by the media and others raising the race card to avoid undesirable questions that might have (should have) knocked him out of the race.
    We are all set to let it happen again.

  • Jim

    the opposite side of racial profiling is the danger of overusing it. Terrorists could be dressed up to look like clean-cut accountants and non-arabs could be recruited. Overuse of profiling would allow these ruses to be successful.

  • Carlos

    It's not racial profiling. It's criminal profiling.

  • Carol

    All of this is so sad because the police don't have a right to do their jobs so to me what is the sense of having police and their salaries are constantly being cut because the cities don't have money to pay them correctly so why bother even having them all they are is dark uniform to keep the people that do follow the law in line and to me that is simply not worth it sad to say that but very true.

  • guest

    The most rediculous "racial profiling" I have ever witnessed: a national TV ( in Atlanta) station aired a segment some time ago about the ACLU claiming blacks were being imprisoned at an alarming unfair ratio to whites. No one ever bothered to include the truth that the actual number of blacks committing felony crimes was as high or higher than the corresponding ratio of imprisoned blacks. When facts support the arrest and imprisoning rate, the term racial profiling is in fact a lie that is being used to protect the guilty. The term "diversity" and all of the political correctness shoved down Americans' throats fall into the same category of lies used against whites. How long will America believe and accept the lies that have been hatched up by the "progressives", the liberals, the new age secularists, the demons right out of hell???

  • Carlos

    when is racial profiling OK? .... When it's part of a criminal's profile....... DUH???

  • Superman

    If there is a crime of any kind, it is the duty of the police to arrest who ever commited the crime and not listen to anybody. More, if there is any defender of the criminal, the police should arrest them also. Pretty soon, there will be no more blame to the police work on their duty.
    The police don't make any distinctive priorities. They make their duty only.

    Profiling vs Intellect? In 1994, our wonderful area was getting infested with drugs. Weekly shootings, and stabbings. Home values went plummenting! The state troopers waited a mile off the state interstate, and pulled over hundreds of cars with tinted windows, and banged up cars. Over 83% of these vehicles had guns, drugs, and young black males, who had thousands of dollars on them. Word got out, and crimes came to a halt! 3 WEEKS LATER, AFTER PROFILING WAS CHARGED, AND POLICE COULD NO LONGER STOP THESE CARS, CRIMES STARTED ALL OVER AGAIN! Result? All the decent law abiding people moved away, and area was left to the druggies. Murders, stabbings, and children were killed! 2 YEARS AGO, THE CITY TORE DOWN THE PROJECTS, AND CAMERAS WERE SET UP IN BAD AREAS. Now area is better, but damage was done! Profiling or stupidity?

    • screeminmeeme

      Your recounting of the events in your area truly show what an evil POLITICAL CORRECTNESS is...and how it's killing America. Because of PC, we are supplanting our Judeo-Christian-based society, which was founded on absolute truth, with a PC one built on a foundation of lies. We have got to REPLACE our PC spewing government officials with truth-tellers who will call a spade a spade and initiate common sense solutions to the problem of escalating crimes of violence.

  • djw663

    Profiling is used everyday by everyone sometimes for good and sometimes not. Profiling needs to be used all day everyday to catch criminals and terrorists. We all fit some kind of profile and if you are a law abiding citizen there is no need to worry about anything, by that same token do not take away any freedoms of individuals. Using profiles would target individuals based on crimes committed not necessarily to stop crimes from happening. Terrorism is another problem altogether and unfortunately certain radical groups will and need to be targeted and treated as suspected terrorists.

  • screeminmeeme

    Thank you for your invaluable service to this Nation. When traveling in other countries, visitors are required to have their documentation with them at all times. Our POS gov leaders refusing to do the same here speaks volumes about how far off the charts they are from the American people. It shows how far Obama, Holder, et al will go to ensure they retain their jobs by making sure that the hispanic voting block will go with them for their hands-off treatment of illegals. ''Fast and Furious'' viasco included, these ''leaders'' I believe are culpable to some degree for crimes committed by illegals, because of their refusal to stop them and deport them. And the many sanctuary cities are breaking the law by not complying with the FEDS.

    What a mess we are in....and all preventable if people only had the will to do what it takes. I hope to God we get a new President who will do what is right.
