A favorite Randite hero of mine, Charles Krauthammer speaks!
"[J]ihadist terrorism has been carried out from Bali to Casablanca to Madrid to
London to New York City to Washington by young Islamic men of North African,
Middle Eastern and South Asian origin. This is not a stereotype. It is a simple
statistical fact. ... But the overwhelming odds are that the guy bent on blowing
up your train traces his origins to the Islamic belt stretching from Mauritania
to Indonesia. Yet we recoil from concentrating bag checks on men who might fit
this description." --Charles Krauthammer

NYCLU Calls Decision To Conduct Random Searches Of Individuals On New York's Subways Unconstitutional
The New York Civil Liberties Union announced today that it is troubled by the NYPD announcement that it will begin random searches of bags and packages carried by people entering the city's subways. The NYCLU believes such searches are unconstitutional and will do little to provide safety for the millions of people who ride public transportation every day. NYCLU Executive Director Donna Lieberman issued this statement:
"All New Yorkers rely upon public transportation and we all want them to be safe and secure as we go about our daily activities. We are entitled to move freely around the city without being worried about being searched by police.
Hey Donna, in order to move about freely we have to be alive first, asshat!
