Time to Re-evaluate

Reader comment on item: Islamists, Get Out

Submitted by Virginia Crawford (United States), Mar 26, 2003 at 16:17

Many of the leaders in our country are trapped by political correctness. There are people who are evil and do not play by the rules. It's not religious or racial profiling if a person of a particular race or religion consistently commits illegal or damaging acts in the name of that religion. Profiling is an investigative tool. I don't remember any news commentaries or outrage by our leaders when it was stated that most serial killers are white males in their 30's.

We seem to have lost our ability to investigate incidents properly because we don't want to hurt anyone feelings. The constitution guarantees our right to pursue happiness. It doesn't guarantee that we will never have our feelings hurt. Finally, I'll take hurt feelings over allowing religious/political fanatics to roam free and murder our citizens. Anyone who is unhappy with this or any country is free to do what our ancestors did - leave!
