PROFILES IN COURAGE


The British government has – sacre bleu – committed an act of logic, as reported today in a British newspaper:

“The Government is discussing with airport operators plans to introduce a screening system that allows security staff to focus on those passengers who pose the greatest risk. The passenger-profiling technique involves selecting people who are behaving suspiciously, have an unusual travel pattern or, most controversially, have a certain ethnic or religious background. The system would be much more sophisticated than simply picking out young men of Asian appearance. But it would cause outrage in the Muslim community because its members would be far more likely to be selected for extra checks.”

Well, as G. Gordon Liddy, who would know from criminal activity, said, “If you stopped DOING it – and let’s bear in mind here that you’re the ONLY ONES who do it, then there’d be no need to profile.”
