3. U.S. to Expand Rules Limiting Use of Profiling by Federal Agents

The Justice Department will significantly expand its definition of racial profiling to prohibit federal agents from considering religion, national origin, gender and sexual orientation in their investigations, a government official said Wednesday.

The move addresses a decade of criticism from civil rights groups that say federal authorities have in particular singled out Muslims in counterterrorism investigations and Latinos for immigration investigations.

(meanwhile Japanese courts actually make a rational decision and allow spying on the people actually likely to commit acts of political terror)

  1. 1/ Good grief, a career built on teaching thought crime, criminalizing thought crime and defending the constitutionality of such misconceived law. And after 50 years of wrecking free speech in Canada he admits he’s a hypocrite. Does he hear himself even now?

    ‘Non-democracies where free speech is prohibited, such as Iran or the Palestinian Authority, have an even greater obligation to prevent hate speech than free societies such as the US where all speech is protected, Cotler said.’

    I must be missing something, not having 50 years of professional engagement with the issue. If all speech is protected, then speech that someone happens to find hateful is protected, no? The hard lesson that ‘sticks and stones’ arose to teach is that the world is full of rotten people who get off on making other people feel bad, and every child needs to figure out ways to cope with that – ways that stop well short of growing up to write ‘anti-hate legislation’ in a Ministry of Justice.

  2. Never underestimate the depths of stupidity the left will go to in their efforts to destroy the west, rulings like this are one of the reasons so many people are working hard to get a state called constitutional convention to pass the amendments that would allow the states to override rulings like this one.
