Those of you who are long term readers know that yours truly has been profiled in VT.
The reason for that is I drive with NY plates. Unfortunately, the local police have learned who I am and have been polite. There are times it is annoying but the police are doing their job.
The reality of Police work is that many of the clues are subtle and police do work on probability. A person with NYC plates by the border is most likely a tourist or in other cases could be involved in criminal activity. Thus my 2AM trips to the local supermarket to get Miracle Whip arroused suspicion. I was inconvienenced delayed but let go. I offered to take a breathalizer immediately and was turned down.
I offered to touch my nose the polce officers nose but that wasn't the issue. The local police were never rude or abusive just doing their job.
Similarly police in NYC and other places have tough jobs to do. We have plenty of infrastructure to gaurd and they must use every tool of judgement at their disposal.
The idiotic left wants you to believe Grandma Prune Juice is as likely to blow up a building as someone from a Muslim Country. Off the bat that logic is absurd and inconveniences people for no good reason. Maybe if you are from Pakistan and you do not like being profiled you will turn on the real culprits the terrorists and their fellow travelers on the left. The blame for the ensuing hassles belongs on the terrorists.
Policemen have a tough job and should be respected. If the left like 167 is so against police states where is the critique of Cuba, Iran and the Commies durring the Cold War. The Orwellian hypocrisy from the far left is astounding. Do we need smoking cities before AMerica realizes the far left is full of it.
