There's 2 sides to stories
So, we have a situation where we are seeing 1 side of this - third hand
He was stopped 20 times before and didn't get prosecuted. This time he is...
Now, there are several things here that we don't know
- What evidence do the police have? And before you say 'none' think carefully first and if that fails, site your verifiable sources.
- Could it be that he's just good at hiding his real activities and getting sympathy vote? Most terrorist / high level criminals (or all ethnics background) tend to look 'normal'
- He could well be innocent and win the case
I can't help thinking that profiling is going on both sides of the fence here. People responsible for our safety - the ones that people bitch about the most - tend to look at people like his gent and think 'could be'. On the other hand, you have the rest of the population that look at him and go 'no can't be'. Both approaches, in my books, is racially motivated. Would you think the same of a white middle aged man in the same way? be honest with yourselves.
The police / protection people have a hard job to do and yes they sometimes get it wrong. But when they get it right it allows us to live safely.
