This is a mindboggling concept for me, on every level I can think of. The problem here is that people want to bastardize the concepts of self-preservation and a need for actual real security with some sinister plot to deprive those who would do us harm of their “rights”? I do realize there is some merit to “rights” here, but they should in NO WAY, trump the protection of our citizenry … ever.
This is no different at all than gun controls whose main purpose is to deprive us of the that means for self-defense (or sport) but has no bearing on the criminal elements where the gun problems exist. Criminals 1, citizens 0! If you do not like (or need) a gun then don’t buy one because it probably wouldn’t do you any good anyway. I carry a .45 Cal Kimber, am very proficient in its use and feel as secure as possible in such volatile times.
If a black man (purple, red, blue, Mexican, Irish, Islamofascist or even a white man commits a crime, don’t you see a need for profiling?
I remember an “Amber Alert” here in Florida where an infant was ‘missing’, so in the light of PC, they failed to point out that the baby was black and the people of interest (PC again) were black too. I had to go to their website (at their bequest) to learn these details which makes no sense at all … isn’t some profiling (common sense) necessary? For goodness sake it was an Amber Alert how are we supposed to help?
Do you have any problems understanding what you may face when confronted by someone who is irate, fearful, overly concerned (without merit), self-righteous, obnoxious, insulting or any other number of emotions and habits? I certainly do not! But then, I understand the need for profiling. I cannot tell you specifically what is bothering them (at first), but I sure can tell when they are about to bother ME (or others). And I do not even need to strip search crippled children to figure it out.
