Guess if they were doing it in America? They would be treated differently?

Since I dont understand the 'it' that you refer to... I will not comment

 

 

Come on, Mate!

 

I have listened to your opinion and have not said anything like 'Come on, Mate'. I appreciate the same respect for my views

Respect went out the window with human rights.

:P

 

If one of the USA Railways was subjected to, the same as London? Your Police acted the same?

 

You will still say what you do??

 

Come on? The World wants to stop these IDIOTS, that is all they really are, They Fight for NOTHING, except the Hope that they MIGHT get a few Virgins, if they are Real Lucky, Mate! The World is United to make sure they fail, then go to where they belong!

Not sure what you are trying to say.

 

I saw both twin towers fall. saw the people covered in ash. Lent many of them my cell phone. Not sure what you are trying to say but we have had a terrorist attack on our soil. Maybe not a railway but to me at least the same thing. almost 2000 died. But I dont recall police shooting anybody because they ran or for their race.

Why would, I, of all people, think it was right? You must have seen my other posts in this thread. :lol:

Well I really wanted it to get back to the PC thing because in a few instinces in the US the race of a given person was left out of the description asking for help in locating an individual.

 

Can all raced commit acts of terror, yes they can and they DO. I am not sure this is reason enough not profile a little bit, the line though is very thin and hard to walk. We profile all other things, clothing, speech, actions and none are so touchy as racial profiling, and rightly so BUT if one race is more likely to commit a certain act then is really responsible not to profile as long as it doesnt blind you to the potential of others commiting that same act, such as Israel was with female suicide bombers.

no it does not, it almost brings me to tears whenever I see a replay of that action

Have you ever experienced the results of racial profiling before? :huh:

 

I have, that :filtered: is downright infuriating and leaves you feeling violated. It just ain't right.

I cant really watch it. Saw it live. Sow the whole thing. Saw the people covered in ash and injured. High school kids trying to get in touch with their parents in tears, no money for food or drink and no way to get any. I spent time with lots of people that day and its was a difficult day for me

like I said its a thin line, I dont think they should be stopping people and harrassing them but if they notice a certain "group" of people acting weird they may want to watch them for a couple days to see whats up.

Yea.. well... it doesn't quite work out that way in practice. My experiences with racial profiling have resulted in my member title being what it is.

but I think it could with proper training, and I dont blame your sentiments about it, the idea though should be discussed openly and not thrown out immediately without considering the potential good aspects of it while weighting the potential negatives.

As far as I see it, it has no good aspects, just results in alienating people and openly promoting racism and prejudice as a legitimate practices.

 

I'll leave that to the KKK and Nazis.

Noone is interested in KKK or any of the rest, lift your Game, become someone?

drovers, with all do respect. who do you think you are to talk to him like that or diminish the 9/11 attacks as history that we should all be over by now. dont try to backpeddle your way out of it either, thats exactly what you did and meant to do. im very interested in ANYTHING neo has to say on this forum and i dont need you to speak for me by telling him we arent interested cause a lot of us are.

 

we all want terrorism to stop and how to get the job done is what we cant agree on.

 

but your insensative and offensive references to 9/11 and the thoughts of another member here arent needed. contribute without malice or move on. please.

Maybe I really am a Crazy Aussie?

 

My little Dog in my Avatar, last night was so sick, she actually bared her teeth at me. I have had her since she was a Pup, she is well Trained. Both my Tiger and I were really worried about her. Tonight, she is fine!

 

That is what the Terrorist work on? Insucurity, particularly about your Loved Ones?

 

We just got to stomp them out!
