Skip to comments.Sotomayor cites Boston on perils of profiling
Posted on 05/03/2013 8:32:57 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor said Thursday the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings shows how difficult and sensitive the issue of racial profiling can be.
Speaking with young students in Denver, Sotomayor noted that some people asked whether authorities had done enough to track the two suspects, both ethnic Chechens.
Is that profiling? Could be, she said. Is it something you just can't ignore? Maybe sometimes not.

“Profiling” is the most powerful tool at law enforcement’s disposal. It is a GOOD thing.
Well, when being Muslim is connected with warnings from Russia, it no longer should be considered profile. To the contrary, the hand-wringing of the liberal bedwetters over profiling probably was a major contributing factor to the bombers falling off the FBI radar after the Russian warnings.
just one item, the noses on those boys, facilitated ease of search. Surprised they didn’t flee to the shore and sail a rowboat somewhere else.
I worked for a federal law enforcement agency for 32 years in an area where 99% of the perpetrators where white males. When looking for a suspect we almost reflexively eliminated minorities and women. I didn’t hear anyone complaining about racial profiling.
The wise latino woman is dumb as a stump.
Affirmative action at work.
Perils?? She’s nuts....It’s reality...
Oh, Sotomayor....we’re looking at a real piece of intellectual achievement there. Let’s follow her recommendations.
“Maybe sometimes not”
What a freaking wise Latina genius we got.
Sotomayor is LA Raza/Hispanic Ku Klux Klan racist....her version of civil rights is to deny them to anyone white, Christian, and speaks English.
Does anyone know of another case where a Judge walked into an interrogation and effectively had it stopped .
This part of the story is a weird twist.
Ever notice the one’s fighting against profiling are the one’s that would be profiled. Don’t listen to these socialist democratic frauds anymore. These losers and their warped mentally despise this country.
Oh, STFU !
SO much peril.
Perilous to who?
Perilous to the terrorists! Don't you know that we call patriots the enemy and those that want to destroy us our friends? We have to protect our friends. We hate the Constitution and like to legislate from the bench.
A wise judge knows better than to leave the important stuff to Congress.
In the words of the late Andy Rooney: “It’s not profiling. It’s math.”
Perils? You dumbass bitc*!
Quit making profiling into something that’s wrong!
We will not accept it! NEVER!
profiling goes on everytime I go to the airport. TSA always selects me for the full treatment by an agent plus a supervisor. As I look around I mostly see people like me being body searched - never seen an mid-eastern appearing person being searched. Oh, by the way I am an old white guy - replacement knees, clean shaven with military and law enforcement in my background.
TSA profiles old white guys like me!!
In another day before affirmative-action (a type of profiling), sontomeyer would be cleaning toilets in a cheesy motel somewhere.
We were correct that the bombers would be Muslims.
But yes, shame on us for assuming that most Muslims are from the Middle East.
Isn’t it amazing that the so-called intelligensia of our country who are lauded for their brains really have ‘bats in the belfry’.
The fools on the left are worried sick that muslims will catch crap after one of them murders a bunch of innocent people. It’s baffling. They’re interfering with the natural order of things. Muslims deserve ridicule, and ridicule works. The left knows that ridicule works! Consider the “gay” issue where anyone opposed to anything gay is immediately called a “homophobe”, or “bigot” and so on - and public opinion on the issue has changed so much that gay marriage now seems inevitable.. In this way, the left has blood on their hands. I remember when they came to the defense of muslims at large on 9/11, the ruins were still smouldering. Disgusting.
As it is, the terrorist are able to carry out their attacks without fear of backlash from the public. That’s backwards.
[[Is that profiling? Could be, she said. Is it something you just can’t ignore? Maybe sometimes not. ]]
Soooo what is she saying? She’s goign to charge the police with profiling even htough they KNEW it was a chechen that committed the crimes because they were CAUGHT ON CAMERA placign the bombs?
Know who one of the biggest Sotomayor cheerleaders was??
Yep, Marco Rubio’s chief of staff...Cesar Conda.
That guy gets around!
I hadn’t realized until that link that Cesar worked for Cheney!
Works for and works on, apparently.
Wow...great find AuntB
Looks like Rubio’s George Soros link is just a mojito away from being Raul Grijalva clone.
“That guy gets around!
I hadnt realized until that link that Cesar worked for Cheney!”
When he left Cheney, he went to work for Soros.
It’s all here.
Who is Cesar Conda?
Rubio needs to drop him, unless he’s in agreement with him.
“Rubio needs to drop him, unless hes in agreement with him.”
Rubio ‘hired’ Conda before he was elected to the senate. Do you think a power player like Conda goes to work for a lowly state representative, or did Rubio go to work for him? Be sure of this...where Conda is, there is Norquist. I’ve been tracking their side by side dealing for 8 years...also on board nearly always with them is Karl Rove.
They use the tea party label to get Rubio elected.
She’s as dumb as she looks.
A third tier mediocrity chosen because of her race and her enthusiasm for murdering unborn children. A national embarrassment. In fact, we need MORE not less profiling.The two Boston terrorists were young foreign Muslims. Two of their after the fact accessories were also young foreign Muslims. The third after the fact accomplice was young, foreign and probably Muslim as well, although the media will not tell us: he’s from Ethiopia where the population is about 50 percent Muslim, 50 percent Christian. The media misleadingly refers to this guy as “an American citizen” without noting that he is in fact naturalized, the new breed of immigrant who comes for the free stuff but despises our country and its way of life. A sensible profiling policy that kept young foreign Muslims out of country would have prevented the two World Trade attacks and the Boston attack. By keeping Major Hassan’s father in his Egyptian hole, it would have saved the fine young people at Fort Hood as well.
