The sooner this administration and people like Holder are voted out of office, the better. Obama and his minions have already ruined the military with 'political correctness'. Obama's muslim supporters have already succeeded in removing any references to 'radical Islam' or 'jihadis' from the FBI and military training manuals. Now, they want to handcuff the FBI and other federal agencies. It's outrageous, and will put the American public at risk. Can you imagine FBI agents being afraid to interview any muslims in connection with terrorist bombings? And believe me, if these insane rules are put in place, they will. Because Holder will prosecute them for 'profiling'. This is the same ridiculous philosophy that causes TSA agents at the airport to strip search granny in her wheel chair, and let more obvious suspects walk on through. It's a joke.

I'm not sure how the word "profiling" received such a bad rap. Profiling is really just using the best information available at the time based on experience. To ignore patterns and strive toward ignorance is absurd.

I can't believe Eric Holder is still serving as US AG when he should be serving time.

To not allow police to use sex, race, skin color, religion, national origin, gender and sexual orientation in their investigations is like not allowing quality control inspectors to use shape, mass, national origin or a whole pile of other quantifiable aspects for predicting or preventing quality issues.

Take those same tools away from quality control inspectors and you would end up with a whole pile of scrap and the cost of not stopping the defective units from causing damage.

There is no justice in cripling the abilities of law enforcment by taking away statistically proven methods for identifying risks. So how do they propose to identify the next set of defective units if they don't use profiling?
