Political correctness going overboard. It just so happens that suicide bombers rarely are blonde white old ladies. But it violates civil rights when black, Arab or Asian muslim males are singled out as terrorist subjects.
He accused the police of wasting time and money by carrying out “self-evidently unmerited searches”, which were also an invasion of civil liberties. The searches, for example, of blonde women who fit no terrorist profile came against a backdrop of complaints from rights groups that the number of black and Muslim people being stopped and searched by police was disproportionate.
Lord Carlile said that police were stopping white people unjustifiably so that official figures would make it look as if they were not singling out black and Asian people under Section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000. “No police officer has admitted that to me, but I believe that is the case,” he told The Times.
Of course, there is another human rights problem. The problem of innocent white subjects being searched purely for statistical reasons, in spite of not fitting any statistic pattern for terrorists Just for political correctness. That is a violation of their civil rights.
