Skip to comments.NYC Politician: Use Racial Profiling on Subways
Posted on 08/01/2005 5:32:47 AM PDT by CarlEOlsoniii
Political correctness won't keep New Yorkers safe from terrorists, a state assemblyman said Sunday promising to introduce legislation allowing cops to use racial profiling to target Middle Easterners when they search bags.
Dov Hikind (search) charged that it's "insane" to look for bombs in the bags of "75-year-old grandmothers," adding, "The FBI and authorities have a good idea of who is going to commit terrorism. They all look similar, but everyone is terrified of using the word 'racial.' "
The Brooklyn Democrat said the NYPD's 10-day-old tactic of randomly checking bags without regard to race or ethnicity at subway entrances may be politically correct (search), but it won't save lives.
"There is a terrorist profile for a potential suicide bomber, and it's not the 75-year-old grandmother . . . who has an oversized tote bag firmly tucked under her arm" said Hikind, who called random searches "insane."
Instead, he argued, police should be stopping and searching "people of Middle Eastern descent," with particular focus on young men and women.
"Every case of recent terrorism has been committed by individuals [from a] Middle Eastern country," he said.

Well, it's not really "racial profiling" that they need, but religious profiling, and that's harder to do, since Muslims come in so many different maks and models.
Did hell just freeze over? A democrate from New York actually gets it?
I just cannot believe it. A Rat coming up with something that makes sense. Wonders never cease to amaze me!
After the next attack, what will be the tolerance for Islam in America?
I'm okay with pretending it already happened and taking action now.
Racial Profiling, Expulsion, Random Searches.
It's hard to feel for people who want you erased from the face of the earth, whether they are ready to act on it today or tomorrow.
We already know they support it. That message was and is in their silence.
So what should we do with 75 year old Muslim grandmothers?
Most muslims are not middle-eastern but the most radical and violent are all from the ME.
90%+ of all terrorist attacks are by M.E. males between the ages of 17 and 40. Until that starts to change, profiling for this group just MIGHT be helpful.
They don't seem too keen on blowing themselves up for some reason....
Actually I suspect that Muslim grannies would be fairly easy to convince to be suicide bombers especially if they were a known 'unchecked' passenger.
It will be interesting to see how quickly the demwits drop this guy from their roster.
Untill we do we are all under the threat of eyeslimeic worship practices.
Why should the entire nation, or world for that matter be inconvienced because of these murderers hellallah bent on world domination?
Ship em allah back to mecca and squash it flat!

So do I. Although in this case, its more like "religious" profiling.
I think Hykind is actually a Democrat.
Maybe, but if they were easy to convince, I think we would be seeing them blow themselves up in Israel. Are we?
If these guys would use toddlers why not grandma. I'm tellin ya ignoring grandma says to the terrorists hey use grandma, a lot the same as ignoring mexican immigration says hey enter america secretly here!
I don't see the connection, but I'm tired of arguing with you. I disagree that Muslim Grandmas will be waiting in line to blow themselves up, but hey, I could be wrong.
