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.

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.

OOOooo it's very perilous!!

How perilous?

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.

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!!
