Disgusting racial profiling after the attack.

I'm surprised the board isn't up in arms over this.

He since has been released and is no longer a suspect. This of course after he survived the blast, after he was tackled, after his apartment was searched by the police, after his property was taken by the police. All this because of the way he looked. Disgusting. Their excuse? He was running from the blast. Well no ****! So were hundreds of others.

I thought we were past this crap.

Racial profiling has always been, and will always be a part of police investigations, and it isn't going away.

It's not "racial profiling" when citizen bystanders are suspicious enough of you to tackle you to the ground and bring you to the cops. Racism on the part of the bystanders, maybe, if their sole motivation was race (which we don't yet know is true). "Racial profiling" implies the police just rolled up to him because he was Saudi and arrested him solely on that ground.

Are you saying the cops should have just ignored the guy a bunch of suspicious civilians turned in to them? Yeah I bet you'd all make wonderful cops.

its racial profiling cause the only reason they were suspicious of this guy is cause of his skin color
