Feds to Ban Religious, Racial Profiling


holder1The Obama adminstration will formally announce new limits on racial profiling on today, but the policy changes won’t apply to local police departments.

Under the new regulations from the Justice Department, racial profiling will be banned from national security cases for the first time.

The FBI will not be permitted to consider gender, national origin, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity in deciding whether to open cases. These new rules will be introduced in addition to existing prohibitions on considering race and ethnicity.

However, state and local law enforcement, which have faced charges of racism in light of the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, will only have to follow these regulations when they work on federal task forces. Otherwise, the Department of Justice’s curbs are just guidelines, and they are not obligated to adhere to them in their own communities. Read more at the Washington Post.

  1. There seems to be no end to the amount of damage that an afroe can cause when they really set their
    mind to it Obama and Holder case in point

  2. Religion. Where you come from. What about prior criminal history? Why are the authorities allowed to profile those we are, tragically by no fault of their own, criminal? This is terrible! Police should not be allowed to have any idea who lurks in our neighborhoods. Pity those poor poor criminals who are just trying to kill and steal and hurt and bomb. This is terrible!
