  • Is Racial Profiling for terrorists ever ok?

    Do you think it is ever acceptable to use racial profiling for investigating/deterring Terrorist activity?

    An obvious example would be if the police in UK, in an effort to protect the transit system, began to scrutinize males who appear to be of Middle Eastern descent.

    Please explain your vote.

    Generally yes, the majority of Terrorists have been of ME descent.
    72.33%
    149
    Sometimes, it depends on the circumstances (IE: after an attack).
    10.68%
    22
    No, it is a violation of civil/human rights.
    8.74%
    18
    No, racial profiling will/does not work.

    Generally, yes. In fact my last federal agency specifically said, stop and question any middle easterners in certain areas, or those photographing/video taping areas. After checking IDs and escorting from the areas/confiscasting film, those names were to be forwarded to Army Intelligence for further investigation.

    Political correctness has never won any wars, nor has it kept anyone safe.

      Call me racist, call me anything you want. We live in a different world now, and we need to protect outselves and our future generations. If "we" as society, (government) know the "type" of people that we are looking for then yes, racial profile away. Why would we NOT look at people that fit the bill?

        Civil rights violations aside, I think the greater crime would be to not profile them. Every American citizen deserves to know that they are not being placed on the same level as a terrorist/muslimist. If you're a muslim: deal with it. To not profile would be counter-productive and defeat the purpose of doing security checks. If we don't allow police officers to profile then what exactly is our "war on terrorism?"

            If they were deported where would they go? Back to their muslimist base camps in the middle east to train for bombing . That's not where we want them to go. We would need to intern illegal alien muslimists.

              RACIAL PROFILING

              This one's been making the rounds.

              To ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly insane fanatics intent on killing us, airport screeners will not be allowed to profile people. They will continue random searches of 80-year-old nuns, four-year-old children, airline pilots with proper identification, Secret Service agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal Of Honor winning former Governors.

              Pause a moment and take the following test, which will show you why racial profiling is discriminatory and evil:

              In 1972 at the Munich Olympics, athletes were kidnapped and massacred by:
              (a) Olga Korbutt
              (b) Sitting Bull
              (c) Michael Jackson in the name of NAMBLA
              (d) Arab-Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40

              (c) The Boy Scouts

              (c) Apaches
              (d) Arab-Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40

              In October 1983, the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up killing 242 soldiers, by:

              (a) The Smurfs
              (b) Maxine Waters and a gang of Marxists
              (c) Jimmy Carter
              (d) Arab-Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

              (c) The World Wrestling Federation to promote its next villain: "Mustapha the Merciless"

                  I dunno. Ask your buddy Michael Savage. It wasn't my original idea. He suggested it on his show tonight, and I thought it was a good idea.

                        I agree, I mean it's not like Oklahoma was an isolated incident. Why there's thousands of white males all over the world calling themselves the "Al-Caucasia". This evil group is known to hijack planes, decapitate civilians and conduct suicide bombing runs.

                          No, these terrorists are far more dangerous and sinister. They so blatantly go into countries, plunder their natural resources, kill all their democratically elected leaders, blackmail nations, and scare the hell out of their own citizens with strategic bombings so they can give up their security and become a slave. Oh we're the U.S. Remember what Ben Franklin said, "they that give up essential liberty to attain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety".

Thousands of innocent Japanese-Americans, many born here, had their homes & assets seized and were forced into camps. Could something like that be around the corner if we are attacked again? And guess who would be on the front lines doing it?
                            If you haven't seen it already, check out the movie "The Siege." It was made back in 98 and deals with this exact issue. It's entertaining, and makes you think at the same time.

                              Agreed. Going into this blind can and will get you killed.
