    No, I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you? So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people. They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males between the ages 17 and 40 alone lest they be guilty of profiling.
     
  2. So, NMC, what are you getting at? :lol:
     
  3. I'd liked it when one of the Deputy Commissioners of the BTP having been accused of racial profiling by his force following the 7/7 bombings made the point that when old white women start blowing up trains they'll be targeted as well. There's a time to be sensitive towards ethnic minorities and a time to be pragmatic even if it fcuks off a few people. And which would you rather, a bit pissed off or being ID'd by your teeth the police pull out of the nearest wall?
     

  4. I ain't afraid of no ghosts :D
     
  5. On a serious note, it all boils down to PC and having the balls to do what should be done as opposed to what appears fair when it is done.

    We complain bitterly about law and order in the UK, but no government has the balls to tackle it.
    If every car thief was sentenced to 10 years, the prisons would overflow.
    But for how long, once it was realised it was not a paper punishment.
     
  6. I'm in favour of rehabilitation and that people should be given a second chance (unless its the big two rape and murder) as I've had a couple myself. But some of these scumbag habitual criminals who have been convicted of 20-30 'minor crimes' like GBH, burglary, drugs etc, before they finally murder someone and get real jailtime, when in a world where the government and those human rights ******* actually gave a toss about innocent people they would have shot the pricks or lobotomized them and have them collect the trolleys at Tesco's. Rant over :x
     
  7. I totally disagree, its the continued policy of second chances and soft options that encourages re offending.
    The government actually got as far as recommending short sharp lessons, but never actually got around to instigating them.
    The law is the law, break it and pay.
    The victims seldom get a "Second Chance"
     
  8. Oh for the days when we could just dump the bastards in Australia
     
  9. From the Army's perspective we still do.
     
  10. Now your taking the p1ss, we don't want your leftovers :twisted: :wink:
     
  11. This could well be prime topic fodder. Where should Britain dump its untermenschens?
     
  12. Berkinow or Bridgend
     
  13. Saff o the river :wink:
     
  14. Same place Noah dumped all the animal dung after 6 years at sea, many years later Chris Columbus headed west and ran aground on this monster pile of shite and called it........
     
  15. How about Israel/Palestine so they've a pack of cnuts to unite against
     
  16. East? :D
     
  17. OOps,.....Rum Rat was Nav's Yeo. :)
     
  18. Or, better still, how about Chingford?
     
  19. Hmmm, so the following perpetrators of septic nightmares would still be able to carry out their various activities without worrying about their behaviour attracting the attention of the Intelligence Community/Authorities?(Not that the stumblebums responsible for American security had much luck anyway. Too many clues perhaps?)
    Lee Harvey Oswald.
    James Earl Ray.
    Timothy McVeigh.
    Terry Nichols.
    David Koresh.
    Etc, etc, etc, Ad infinitum.
    What about Westerners, Old ladies and blue eyed Nordic types etc etc who have converted to Islam and then had 'Extreme adventure holidays and Religious education' in exotic locations such as Yemen and Pakistan?
    Nah they'll be Kosher it's just the swarthy types that need keeping an eye on after all. :roll:
     
  20. Was on an FBI watchlist as a suspected radical Communist (the al-Queda of the time) but due to the magic of the second amendment was still able to mailorder a rifle to blow off the back of JFK's head.
    Were both White supremists and as stated in my posts if the BNP/EDL start bombing trains/buses I, as a young white male would have no problem being profiled as its for the greater good.
    Was just a nutter surrounded by other nutters who reacted badly to a fcuked up ATF raid where the agents failed to ID themselves and picked a fight with guys who outgunned them.
    A fair point but considering the tiny minority of Islamic terrorists who have been white converts and the limited ability the police have to properly search people without the transport system grinding to a halt its a question of how best to use limited resources which unfortunately is best served by profiling.
