Racial Profiling: At What Price?
This commentary briefly reviews the research findings and legal issues surrounding racial profiling. Whether in airports or on highways, racial profiling has harmful effects to those targeted. The research, although limited, has shown that it is an ineffective method of crime prevention, and has deleterious effects on the already fragile bond between law enforcement and its citizenry. It is argued here that the negative impact of racial profiling outweigh its benefits.
