Reader comment on item: Time to Profile Airline Passengers?

Submitted by Fred Schwartz, Merion, Pa (United States), Sep 14, 2006 at 19:11

Dear Daniel

Twice this year my checked luggage was opened and checked. I know this because they left inspection notices, and one of these inspections caused damage to my luggage for which they apologized. And I do not fly that often. I am a white Caucasian, 78 years old. Are they seeking to avoid profiling charges by profiling white, old men? By inspecting they may be missing a potentially dangerous person.
