No racial profiling in New York...

Isn't this exactly where we should be using terrorist profiling?
A day after a second terror attack struck the London transportation system, the NYPD has begun random searches of New York City commuters throughout the city's mass transit system.

Meanwhile, news has come from London that one of the suspects being sought in connection with Thursday's attacks was caught by a surveillance camera wearing a "New York" shirt near the scene of one of the bombings.

Although authorities believe at least some of the London bombers could be Muslim supporters of the al Qaeda terror network, New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly says the NYPD's anti-terror measures will not target any particular ethnic group.

"Every certain number of people will be checked," Kelly said Thursday, describing the NYPD's search methodology. "There will certainly be no racial profiling allowed."
