96-Year Old Latino Former Arizona Governor Detained By Border Patrol In 100-Degree Heat.
Yep. Racial profiling will bit you in the ass every time. Every time.
And thanks, Carolyn, for the link.
And if his name were John Smith let’s take a bet on wether he’d be stopped.
I’m going to guess the changes would have been “nil” to “no way.”
Did you read the comments following the story? Some stuff along the lines of “well they only stop people who look like criminals” etc.
Yes. Precisely what does a criminal look like?
What does a criminal look like? These days? How about a Wall Street banker. The Libor scandal is showing us that Wall Street is loaded with criminals and Gordon Gekkos. Of course, how likely is it that the media will really cover it and show how bad the situation is? I’m guessing not much.
Funny. Before I clicked, I guessed the link would show white collar criminals….
And of COURSE in Arizona the criminals are ONLY Hispanic-looking and named with — y’know — Hispanic names……
Hell, I don’t even live in AZ but recognized Gov. Castro by his photo.
