I've never fit the profile in my life,
that's my point. If I had long hair
and was covered in tats with a
dozen fast food containers on the
dash, I would never carry more than
$20 with me. The cops will never bother
me.

Twenty years ago when I went to antique
shows with the van full of banana boxs
filled with thousands of dollars in antiques,
the few times I got stopped not once was
I asked what was in the all the boxes.
I didn't fit a profile.

Profiling is not harrasment, it makes sense.

And some people do fit a profile.


Strong point.

Absolutely it makes sense. They do it
because it works. The people that scream
the most about profiling are the ones
trying to get away with something.

Exactly, I'm a young male, I am far far more likely to commit a crime or violence than a senior female. It makes sense that cops would watch me a little closer in public.

I have no problem with profling, because I have nothing to hide and it works.

Then whatchu doin' with all that drug money then, boy? I believe this cash is the proceeds from a drug deal. This is going home with us.

Why on Earth would we discuss this if you were right? To top that, you just damaged your credibility in many discussions with such a statement.

Damn Axel, I'm from 2000 miles away and I know to drive 20 through Searchlight! Dropping the speed limit so fast is the only way they make money in that town.

I knew, and already warned driver before, I wasn't the one driving, and I was looking down on my phone, we seemed to be out of the speed trap zone, and seemed to be in the clear.

The other time they were in a unusual unmarked vehicle.
