This "racial profiling" law came about as a direct result of political correctness.
So, if we are to follow the letter of the law regarding racial profiling, I'm going to make up a "situation". This is a purely fictional situation, directly from my over-active imagination. So humor me.
A man goes through a sub-division one day and breaks into 30 homes. He vandalizes property and kills 15 people. The subdivision is 95% caucasion. None of the homes had security cameras; but one person managed to hide & escape harm without detection and managed to provide a description of the "alleged" person committing crimes. The person drove a white SUV and was African American.
Now, as the police begin looking for this criminal, will they randomly search all white SUVs to make sure they are not accused of racial profiling? Or will they pull every black man driving a white SUV? Or will they search every white vehicle? When the folks in the neighborhood hold a candlelight vigil for the lost loved ones, will they accuse them of being racists? Will they drill the one surviving victim for evidence of racial insensitivity? When the police set up roadblocks to try to find the criminal, will every black man stopped try to sue the police for racial profiling? Or will the citizens complain that they were inconvenienced and refuse to produce identification on the grounds of invasion of privacy?
This insanity has got to stop.
We KNOW, using scientific methods of predicting odds, that a caucasion 95 year old woman will not bomb a plane.
We KNOW, using scientific methods of predicting odds, that a blonde hair blue eyed mother driving kids to soccer practice is probably NOT an illegal immigrant in a border state smuggling drugs.
Why can't we even use common sense any longer to protect citizens? The political correctness in our society has taken dangerous steps and protects the criminals instead of protecting the legal law-abiding citizens.
If I lived in Arizona, I certainly wouldn't mind showing my I.D. at any time. That's right, in the Walmart or on the road in a random road check. If I thought it was being done to protect citizens, I wouldn't mind. The only people that DO have a problem are the ones BREAKING the law. So, why are we protecting criminals in America?
It has gone too far & someone needs to reign in the communists; and if they truly desire a state contolled country, ship them to Cuba or Siberia. Give them a taste on the bottom end of communism. It is NOT eutopia for the bottom class. Communism does NOT eliminate classes. They are even more distinct. Politicians & Police are TOP and everyone else at bottom. Politicians vote themselves BIG pay and will control the pay of everyone else (just like Obama administration is trying to do now, controlling the pay in the private sector).
Wake Up America.
