Now Why Didn't I Think of That?

Someone in the NY Gov't has the brains and cojones to actually say that the NY Cops should be looking for people that fit the profile of a Islamic Terrorist!
A Brooklyn Assemblyman says the NYPD is handcuffed by political correctness in the war on terrorism - and should profile subway passengers for bag searches.

"The individuals involved look basically like this," Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) said yesterday, brandishing a printout of the FBI's most wanted terrorists - all with Arabic names, most with facial hair, some wearing turbans.

"Why should a policeman have to think twice before examining people of a particular group?" Hikind asked. "They all look a certain way. It's all very nice to be politically correct here, but we're talking about terrorism."

The NYPD's random bag checks at subway stations are pointless if they force 75-year-old grandmothers to open their purses, but not people who fit the "terrorist profile," he said.

But the NYPD says it isn't in the profiling business - and doesn't think singling out members of an ethnic group would work, anyway. "Racial profiling is illegal, of doubtful effectiveness, and against department policy," the NYPD said in a statement.

For the sake of political correctness, we are wasting money and time searching people that don't fit the profile, and allowing those that do, to walk right through security checks. Political Correctness, Open Borders, restriction of the Patriot Act and Appeasement are all Liberal traits fostered by and enacted by Liberals, and all which are going to allow Islamic Terrorists to strike America again. If America does get hit again, watch the Liberals blame the Administration, when in fact it was their fault that it happened. This is not a game, this is serious business, but the Liberals are tying our hands behind our back in war against these crazies, and we are the ones that are going to get hurt because of it.
