And how do you profile a terrorist? Do you remember Timothy McVeigh? The young man who killed so many people in a bombing that nobody had a clue he had terrorist thoughts? He was a US soldier and a security guard! How do you profile that? Profiling only leads to racism and hate. It doesn't work.

Intelligent profiling does work. It as been used by Israel very effectively. Intelligent profiling means if 98% of attacks are carried out by males from Mideastern countries, screenings are more focused on those meeting the criteria instead of grandmas. It means assessing the behavior of people and focusing on those that exhibit behaviors that meet intelligent profiling characteristics. Nothing will be 100% but using limited resources where the odds indicate the greatest need makes sense and does not lead to racism or hate.

Time to balance the budget with increase taxes for 100 percent of all citizens.. That is 100% of all citizens plus reduced federal spending. If I were to do my job like you folks I would get fried. This is your boss do your job and get it done.

I oppose profiling. It gives the govern mment the right to violate my constitutional rights because I am not white. every person of color is at risk. It will also violate privacy for those protected under the freedom of religion. its like the current issue on gun control. its not the guns. the last two tragedies were white kids with mental issues.

My experience the police use govt. profiling as an excuse to harass.
