    Although it’s still putting together its enforcement policy for when the light rail system goes cashless in July, Port Authority said Friday it does not intend to use racial profiling or other methods to identify illegal immigrants. The authority explained its plans after a handful of riders expressed concerns at the agency’s monthly board meeting that it would use fare checks to identify people with improper immigration papers. The authority expects to switch to a prepaid system on the T in July, where riders will be on the honor system for paying their fare. To encourage payment, the authority will...

    A YouGov poll released on Thursday found that the majority of Germans said racial profiling was not problematic, amid criticism of police checks on New Year’s Eve in Cologne. Sixty-three percent of Germans in the YouGov poll said they did not find racial profiling generally problematic. Another 27 percent said that it was problematic when police checks are not conducted based on concrete suspicions, but rather on general appearances, including perceived ethnicity or skin color. However, the poll also exposed disparity between age groups, with 46 percent of 18 to 29-year-olds saying they thought racial profiling wasn’t problematic, compared with...

    American journalist Sandhya Kambhampati was stopped by police 23 times within her first nine months of living in Berlin. Now she’s investigating racial profiling in Germany — and is looking for others to share experiences. The first time 24-year-old Sandhya Kambhampati was stopped by an officer in Berlin, she had gone to a park for a morning jog after arriving in the city days before. The officer asked her what she was doing, where she lived, and for her ID. When she told him she only had her keys, he said she should always carry identification and left. […] Nine...
  • Is 'racial profiling' illegal? Depends on where you live [Germany]

    Deutsche Welle ^ | 01.03.2017 | Carla Bleiker
    Cologne police have been accused of racial profiling after targeting men of North African appearance on New Year’s Eve. In the US racial profiling is illegal, but in Germany and the UK, the law isn’t that clear. There is no law in Germany that explicitly prevents a police officer from stopping and checking someone for the way he or she looks. Police in Cologne have drawn some criticism for focusing their attention on men who looked as if they might come from North Africa this past New Year’s Eve. They have denied the accusations of racial profiling, even though the...

    A lawyer who claims French police carried out unjustified identity checks on 13 black and Arab men based only on their racial profiles has brought the cases before the highest French court for the first time. Lawyer Thomas Lyon-Caen told the Cour de Cassation Tuesday the ID checks violated the basic rights of his clients and were discriminatory because a democratic state cannot “link delinquency to skin color.” …

    CNN caught ADDING key word to Trump’s comments; Twitter ERUPTS It’s no longer a surprise that CNN, aka the Clinton News Network, is doing whatever it can to boost Hillary Clinton for president. It even admitted as much on air. And its actions in this presidential election continue to remove any doubt one might have had that it’s not to be viewed as an objective news source. We saw CNN hosts openly toasting and celebrating the Democrat candidate’s nomination. We’ve caught them editing out a Trump t-shirt worn by a hero — so as not to associate Trump with anything other...
  • ‘America’s toughest sheriff’ kept racially profiling Latinos, now faces criminal prosecution

    A darling of the far right and a longtime adversary of civil-rights groups and immigration activists, “America’s toughest sheriff” will soon face Justice Department lawyers in Washington in a years-long legal saga over whether he intentionally defied federal orders to stop racially profiling Latinos. A special section of the Justice Department — dedicated to investigating corruption in publicly elected offices — will decide whether Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio should face criminal contempt-of-court charges, according to a ruling filed in U.S. District Court on Friday. The decision followed several other blows for the Arizona sheriff in the protracted case. In...

    Moments after the story hit the wires that Gary Webb had been found dead of an apparent suicide, the radical left began hinting that the former San Jose Mercury News reporter who broke the Nicaraguan Contra-Crack Connection story had met with a more sinister fate. Alex Walker, of the San Francisco Bay Area Independent Media Center, got the conspiracy ball rolling with the help of single quotation marks and a bit of idyllic prose: They are calling it a 'suicide.' What an amazing 'coincidence' that this happens just when Our Dear Great Dumb 'Intelligence Community' is under scrutiny again. Also...

    It was poison. Venom emanating from the White House, the campaign of Hillary Clinton, the Congressional Black Caucus and other irresponsible members of the Democrat Party, race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and America’s so-called mainstream news media. They are responsible for the spate of deaths of police officers all across the United States. Particularly over the past seven years. Politicians are quick to criticize the police immediately following an incident, long before all the forensics and other investigative tools have determined what has happened. Yet they are nowhere to be found afterwards once the results of an...

    HOW ABOUT A NATIONAL CONVERSATION ON RACE HOAXES?July 29, 2009 You could not ask for a more perfect illustration of the thesis of my latest book, "Guilty: Liberal Victims and Their Assault on America," than the black president of the United States attacking a powerless white cop for arresting a black Harvard professor -- in a city with a black mayor and a state with a black governor -- as the professor vacations in Martha's Vineyard. In modern America, the alleged "victim" is always really the aggressor, and the alleged "aggressor" is always the true victim. President Barack Obama planted...

Terrorists who plan to bomb planes during the first seven hours of the eight-hour flight, however, should face no difficulties, provided they wait until after the complimentary beverage service has been concluded. How do they know Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab didn't wait until the end of the flight to try to...

    Interrupting the endless 30-year Watergate retrospective and getting back to the war for a moment, I've noticed that liberals are having trouble making any good arguments against Bush, so I thought I'd help them out this week. In the third presidential debate, George Bush responded to a question about racial profiling by spontaneously denouncing the profiling of Arabs at airports: "Arab Americans are racially profiled ... people are stopped, and we've got to do something about that." Admittedly, this was before Sept. 11. If Arabs were being stopped at airports before Sept. 11 -- and that's a big if --...

    Another tape-recorded message from Saddam Hussein surfaced this week, making it the third audiotape he has released in the past month. If we're really serious about finding this guy, maybe we should start searching Iraq's recording studios. On the tape, Hussein acknowledged the death of his sons Uday and Qusay Hussein and called their deaths "good news" – which is more than the Democrats have said. He thanked God for his sons' "martyrdom." Indeed, Hussein said that even if he had 100 other children, he "would offer them the same path." Apparently the alluring path of martyrdom is not one...

    The six imams removed from a US Airways flight last week have apparently adopted my suggestion that if they really want to protest the airline, instead of boycotting US Airways, they should start flying it frequently. The spokesman for the imams -- or as I believe it's phrased in their culture, "designated liar" -- Omar Shahin, staged a protest at Reagan Washington National Airport on Monday, after which, according to the Associated Press, "he and other religious leaders boarded a US Airways flight to demonstrate their determination to continue praying and flying." The original six imams removed from the flight...

    NEW YORK - Ann Coulter rules as the saucy, blond siren of the Right. Lashing out at all things liberal and Democrat (labels she uses interchangeably), she treats conservative Republicans to a spicy brand of reassurance that has leveraged her into multimedia stardom with talk-TV appearances, a syndicated column and big-selling books with shrill titles. A year after her successful "Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right," Coulter carries on with "Treason: Liberal Treachery From the Cold War to the War on Terrorism." The book already has spent 12 weeks on The New York Times list of best sellers, most...

Associated Students of ASU, ASU College Republicans and Clare Booth Luce Policy Institute sponsored the author and conservative columnist's visit.
