Police & Profiling

Reader comment on item: Does the [New York] Police Department Profile? Should It?

Submitted by Dan Rusen (Canada), Jun 13, 2006 at 18:57

Dr. Pipes finally points out an obvious thing: that it is high time to get serious about going after our enemies by means of profiling. Hooray! Isn't America supposedly at war? Five YEARS ago profiling should have been the new protocol in Washington. So why isn't America doing whatever it needs to win this war? What are they waiting for - another tragedy even worse than 9/11? It's because the big boys don't want to be serious for fear of offending OPEC.

But merely legalizing certain forms of profiling and electronic snooping isn't enough. If America is seriously at war then other far more pressing measures should be undertaken. Very close limits should be placed on immigration, and not a single soul from a country which identifies itself as, or harbors an enemy should be allowed entry - to any western democracy. Indeed many of the ones already here should be screened for treachery and arrested - just like our Japanese and German enemies were 65 years ago. So.... why don't we adopt these stern measures? The short answer is because we need the oil from these Islamics.... And that includes our "friends" the Saudis. If we didn't want the oil these places would be relegated to their desert void of history... as they had been for 1300 years before the Hydrocarbon Age arrived.
