1. Conduct unbiassed studies to determine how to identify high risk individuals.
2. Apply the results in order to maximise safety.

They weren't strip searching enough geriatrics in wheel chairs and toddlers in diapers?

Subby has confused mounting customer complaints with fellow officers at the TSA complaining about their fellow workers.

In particular:
"These allegations have more weight because they come from people who are knowledgeable about the requirements and training and see something going wrong in the screening process," Keating said.

I can understand searching them black mooslims and especially the low-life Brazillions. You simply can't trust a Brazillion. But why worry about Mexicans? Maybe that's why Bill Keating wants to get probed...

It's still OK to harrass white people, right?

To be fair, 15 years ago in UK, these pictures would have been of fair-skinned dark-haired caucasians holding shamrocks and dancing a jig.

How did 9-11 affect Noraid funding btw?

Let me guess, profiling really old and really young white people?

Flakeloaf: I can only imagine what Israeli border services folks must think of all this.


In general they think our airline security is an absolute joke that was designed by people that probably should be tested for mental retardation. But Israel doesn't believe racial profiling is that effective:

Mr. RON: One of the problems with racial profiling is that there's a tendency to believe that this is the silver bullet to solve the problem. In other terms, if you're a Middle Eastern or if you're a Muslim, then you must be bad. And if you're a European and Christian, then you must be good.

But back in 1972, Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv was supposed to be attacked by a Palestinian, was never attacked by one. It was attacked by a Japanese terrorist killing 24 people. And it was attacked in the mid-'80s by a German terrorist answering to the name Miller.

No I simply waited 1 minute 50 seconds to see if there were any other comments. There were not so I concluded I had won the thread. And since most of what followed has been pretty drossy, and not really even worth reading, I still claim to have won it in one.

ACLU attorney Sarah Wunsch, who has spoken with 10 officers accusing their colleagues of racial profiling, told CNN that officers were targeting racial and ethnic groups -- including Mexicans, African-Americans and Brazilians -- for secondary screening.

Because those ethnic groups bring down planes all the time.

Or are you profiling for drugs? Because drugs don't bring down planes.
 
2012-08-23 10:24:12 AM
Ok, so the "zOMG TERRISTS" crowd says we can't have a policy of giving little old ladies and toddlers a pass on the way through security, because terrorists will just start using little old ladies and toddlers to smuggle bombs onto planes.

But the same crowd is totally OK with the concept of a policy that says we only *really* check brown people and thinks that we're all less safe because the liberal pussies won't let us.

Yeah, it's the racial profiling and not the whole farce wasting our money and time that is the problem. Sure.

If you search everyone but little old ladies then terrorists will find a way to radicalize little old ladies.

Racial profiling is stupid.

Do you have anything to back that up? There was an article here on Fark just recently that said that the NYPD has come to the conclusion that racial profiling does jack and/or shiat. If you can get the NYPD to admit their methods are flawed, I've got to think that the methods are pretty farking flawed.

I know there are lots of brown-haters in here whose heads are permanently looking toward September 2001, but ever try to look around and think about how many of the mass murderers make the news and what color they are? The Western US had two of the most horrific shootings in its history in the last few years, by white men, and by racial profiling we should legitimately be looking at all white men as potential terrorists. The vast majority of spree shooters to make the news have been white. (People are fairly inured to black-on-black ghetto spree shooting.)

The first attempted hijacking since 2001 was on QF 1737 by a white man, David Robinson. Since then there have been more, but the only one at all connected with Al Qaeda was in 2007. The multiple attempts that have failed, guys like Richard Reed (the shoe bomber)... some white, some not. (The underwear bomber was black, but he was picked up because FBI knew he was coming, not a TSA agent.) So legitimately, you fit the template of the terrorist.

See how stupid it is when it gets applied to you? But I suppose those are just "outliers."

Hey, that was easier than I thought. I was worried I'd have to trot out examples of racial profiling that works, like the Israelis do with their airlines.

The only problem with that theory is that the Israelis don't actually do that.

Meanwhile, actual terrorists have been killing people because behavioral profiling did not work. I wonder why they didn't catch these guys?
