The aclu And You

The aclu would rather sacrifice your life than find and kill terrorists. According to the story below, the aclu has filed suit to stop searches on New York's subway. I ask you to carefully look at the picture on the right. Only 20-30 more years and most of the hippy generation will be dead. What a great day that will be. Anyway, would you trust anything you have, especially your life, to these miskayt freaks? (pronounced: miss-gyte. A tip of the hat for my ex-girlfriend's mother, a wonderfully loud lady from New York city, for all the Jewish, Italian, and German slang terms she taught this Texas boy) What is wrong with searching a person on a bus or subway? If I get on a subway, I'm on public property. If I look out of place, or wear a bulky sweater on a 90 degree(F) day, I expect the police to strip me down and go on a full cavity search. What? You still don't like the idea of searches? Here's a way to get around profiling, race discrimination, and other aclu bogeyman terms: If you don't want to be searched, that's fine. You will sit in a designated area on the bus or train with others who do not wish to be searched. The rest of us will sit in an area we know everyone has been looked over, and not worry that someone next to me has nail bombs in his backpack. We live in a wonderful, but changed world, so accept it. If it means you will be inconvenienced for a few minutes, tough! Until every towel-headed camel jockey terrorist and aclu member is dead, the fight must continue. http://www.nynewsday.com/news/local/crime/nyc-suit0804,0,646390,print.story?coll=nyc-homepage-breaking2 NYCLU sues city over subway searches BY JOSHUA ROBIN and DAN JANISON STAFF WRITERS with THE ASSOCIATED PRESS August 4, 2005, 2:54 PM EDT The New York Civil Liberties Union today filed suit against the city to keep police from searching the bags of passengers entering the subway, organization lawyers said. The suit, which filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, will claimed that the two-week old policy violates constitutional guarantees of equal protection and prohibitions against unlawful searches and seizures, while doing almost nothing to shield the city from terrorism.

First, we must stop pretending that the terrorists so far, by-and-large, have not been of the same ethnic origin. This will reasonably narrow down the search for potential perpetrators. But, it makes ALMOST as little sense to stop every Arab or North African in NYC today as it does to stop every 5th random person. Therefore, the profiling must be even more exact than race to be effective.

Israel has been perfecting the art of profiling, and has successfully prevented El Al (national airline) hijackings since 1970. The profilers are trained to look for signs of suspicious behavior (body language), which provides effective clues of whom to question. Barring exceptional con artists, body language is a dead give away of suspicious behavior. In fact, police officers are trained to look for such clues when dealing with everyday criminals.

The results: plenty of Arabs fly El Al, and yet enough people have been turned away to prevent terrorist attacks since 1970.

So why not fly some Israelis to NYC to train New York’s finest on such tactics?
