That's not their official policy. I'm not saying there's no racial profiling going on, I don't know if there is and I wouldn't be too surprised if there was...but that's not their official policy.
I didn't jump to that conclusion, I took it from the context of the rest of the discussion and even your own post (profiling based on appearance, which isn't part of behavioral profiling). If you were referring to behavioral profiling specifically then you're right but you should be more clear about that.
The Israelis DO NOT have an official policy of racial profiling. They use behavioral profiling.
And they are very serious about security, I doubt they'd do something as stupid and counterproductive as racial profiling. If they're really good, anyone suspected to be doing so on the lowdown would be warned and eventually sacked.
So they're Wyden and...who?
Take them away!? That would take them from zero to bloody revolution in under 3 seconds. Just trying to force them to be more responsible with their guns will get them riled up.
Either you're severely claustrophobic or you've lived a perfect, highly pampered life we should all be jealous of.
There is nothing magical about being in an airplane that makes us better or worse then off an airplane.
I don't know about you, but I'm not usually strapped into a tiny seat 3 inches from the heads of other people while we're all confined in a maybe 100x18ft tin can for many hours at a time.
A friend of mine who lives in NYC told me about a time he was riding a bus (may have been driving it...he worked as a bus driver for a long time) and this woman was talking in detail about her visit to the gynecologist and all the odd discharges she was having...
An old dude on the other side of the bus yells out "DAMN WOMAN, NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR PROBLEMS WITH YOUR STANK PUSSY!" and everyone applauded. XD
Being on a plane certainly isn't that bad. Getting onto and off of the plane can suck, especially if you have to deal with the TSA.
You can just watch a movie, sleep, read a book, listen to music, go into the bathroom and fart for 30 seconds straight if the pressure difference gets to your bowels...not that bad.
The cargo hold is pressurized, but not climate-controlled. The only safe path to the outside world that can be used in flight is the sewage dump system, and the entry to it is only so big...
I'll actually second this, this is a situation where we can let the market decide. Most airlines will ban phone calls after the first few air rage killings and then a few niche airlines will allow calls on which all the annoying cell phone yammerers can fly at a higher price, forcing them to lose more money for their annoying tendency. Everybody wins!
And the one about the theater specifically, is surely about as old as affordable cell phone service.
Exactly. Correlation != Causation
But how would their diversion campaign get any airtime over Miley Cyrus' twerking and other attention whoring, the various Obamacare debacles and debates over the treatment of chimps and whales (while people are being slaughtered in Syria and various African hellholes?)
