Profiling in the UK?

Who'da thunk it? It's about time someone had the common sense and decency to ignore P.C. screeds about profiling and actually start profiling potential terrorists. I don't know how to break it to the left, but acts of Islamic terrorism have been committed by one of the following groups:

A. Hare Krishnas at airports;
B. Ashton Kutcher groupies;
C. Thai lesbian nurses with leather chaps (oops...that reminds me, I need to return that movie this afternoon!);
D. Young men of Middle East descent and Islamic roots.

Anyway, back to the Brits:
British Transport Police have been targeting specific ethnic groups for "intelligence-led" stop-and-searches as part of their heightened security measures.

BTP Chief Constable Ian Johnston said that his officers would not "waste time searching old white ladies".
We should be so lucky as to have a smidgeon of that common sense over here!
