Roger Clegg on Racial Profiling on National Review Online calls President Bush's racial-profiling policy perfect. I tend to agree.
when race is part of the suspect's identification, the police are not "profiling" when they use that evidence
He goes on to justify his claims of perfection with this>
The distinction drawn between traditional law enforcement and antiterrorism has, predictably, drawn the disapproval of the American Civil Liberties Union, which called this a "huge loophole," denigrated "vague and hollow justifications of 'national security,'" and declared, "The war on terrorism isn't served by allowing discrimination based on country of origin."
I was feeling a little nervous about calling anything "perfect," but the ACLU's condemnation provided me with the reassurance I wanted.
As the man said,"Perfect!"
