Reader comment on item: American Law Enforcement Really Does Profile Muslims – The Siraj Case

Submitted by Thomas Earfl Cannady (United States), Jun 30, 2006 at 07:31

I am confused are you Mr. Pipes for or against the actions of the New York City Police Department. I only ask because I an African-American (that's black, born in the United States for all you non African-Americans) who has been the victim or racial profiling by the San Diego Police Department (California) because I was not gay and white while driving would like to know if you support racist police work that bring results (those results could be good or bad depending on your view of Constitutional law).

I support shoring up border enforcement and getting rid of the millions of illegals in this country. I also support any lawful action we need to take to keep my college student son safe. Do I support the New York City Police Departments's actions, I do not know I need to hear more. New York is a city I may move to after I complete the degree I am working on. My son wants to visit there with me to see if the schools there would be good for his post graduate work.

I love my country but worry that our civil rights are being used against us by the terrorist and our government. I think we had better have think about what kind of people we let into our country and see if we can change some policies and come up with a better way of safe guarding our borders and our future.

Thanks for telling about yourself. As for me, I concur with the analysis I presented at "A Call for Intelligent Profiling[ by Frederick Schauer]."
