How can Peter King (R-NY) be involved in such nonsense. Is he vying for RINO status?
A Profiling no report is necessary. Logic would dictate, that no flying nuns, little grandmas in wheel chairs, or young children who are routinely screened but but have yet to fly an airplane into a building, should get the anal probe while those with Muslim garb are given a pass do to not wanting to offend them. Frankly, I’m offended by and administration that thinks We the people are so ignorant.
Do you see anything suspicious trying to board? Nah, let him through.
If this administration was serious about airline security they would implement the system used at airports through out Israel. See Time Magazine article on “Toughest Airline Security of All.”
Much like using a condom gives you a false sense of security while you are getting screwed
Call it what you like, do you not believe that profiling will occur using this technology if it is ultimately put in place?
Earth to Janet “off the planet” we need to rethink this strategy now!
John O’Boyle/The Star-LedgerPassengers are screened at the security checkpoint inside Terminal C at Newark Liberty Airport in Newark in this file photo. A house committee wants answers about allegations of racial profiling at the airport.
The two leaders of the House Homeland Security Committee said they want the head of the Transportation Security Administration to explain how racial profiling became a common practice among TSA screeners at Newark Liberty International Airport.
Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) and Rep. Bernie Thompson (D-Miss) are both seeking answers after a federal report found several behavior detection officers singled out Mexican and Dominican passengers for special scrutiny, bag searches, questioning and document reviews in 2008 and 2009. Thompson said the report confirmed his fears the TSA’s Screening of Passengers by Observation Techniques was vulnerable to manipulation or abuse. NJ.com users continue to discuss the report and the call for answers.
