Profiling is not racial.

If there are certain crimes that are committed by people of a certain race or ethnicity then what is the problem?

Whenever they go looking for a serial killer they always start out with "White Male, Mid 30's to late 40's, loner."

I see absolutely zero problem with stopping every Man in their early to late 20's with a Saudi Arabian Passport and asking them to step aside for extra security sweeps.

What I don't understand is people's illogical fascination with profiling. It works, it does not take away anyone's civil rights.

I have more of a problem with the fact that you can not see the law that stipulates that we must show photo identification at the airport in order to board a plane.

If you don't believe me then try it the next time you fly. When they ask to see your ID ask them to show you the law that requires it.

I did this when I was checking in for my flight to Afghanistan. I was in Uniform, I was the last one in line, and we had 6 hours before departure. To put it politely my CO was very perturbed with me at the time.

I got all sorts of very special treatment from the wonderful hosts of homeland security. I told them they would need to show me the specific order or law before I showed them my photo ID. Unfortunately our admin officer caved in to the CO when he was told to give my passport (I had already handed it to the Admin Officer before we left the Air Station) to the nice folks at the check in counter.

It made for an interesting hour or so.

The problem does not come from "Whenever they go looking for a serial killer they always start out with "White Male, Mid 30's to late 40's, loner." The problem comes when LEO pulls blacks or latinos over simply because they are black or latino. That is more the definition of racial profiling.

And while you have no problem with pulling every Saudi to the side for extra security, PROFILING would be stopping and holding or searching ALL arab LOOKING young men, well before you know if they are doctors, lawyers, Saudis, students, tourists. It falls under that annoying "guilty until proven innocent" thing.

So how is that a problem? It is a proven fact these groups are far more involved in crime. So it is only logical to "check out" these groups more, no? Only a rookie LEO doesn't use racial profiling and wastes his time and my tax dime.

Does it matter if they are doctors or lawyers? Would you feel comfortable boarding a plane before which the screeners choose to search an elderly white couple instead of a group of middle eastern muslims, as to not "offend" them?

Your logic fails. It is based on false premise and is against the law.

On your second matter, who said anything about an airplane, either my comments or TNTs?
