America would be nothing without national security. It helps protect us every day without us even noticing it.
National security wasn’t as big of a deal as it was after America was attacked on September 11, 2001, We were all blind to the fact that if anyone really tried to bring something dangerous on a plane that could be used as a weapon, would affect our lives forever.
Four planes were hijacked that day, two crashed into the World Trade Center. Everyone died aboard those four planes- 227 civilians as well as the 19 terrorists.
Until September 11, 2001 did we notice the lack of airport security. To this day, we have kept improving national airport security to make sure that no one can bring weapons aboard a plane.
To help increase airport security, we must allow law enforcement agencies to use racial profiling.
To accuse an elderly woman in a wheelchair or a little American boy for possibly being a suicide bomber, and it being true, has the likelihood of about zero. For example, on 9/11 all the hijackers didn’t try to slip by security with a fake identity, they just went as themselves. That doesn’t mean that all elderly people and children are good, or that they can go by security without any thorough checking, it means that we should pay more attention to young suspicious men.
That is why it makes sense to allow law enforcement agencies to take a closer look at foreign men if they are investigating crimes but to still not violate the person’s rights. Most likely the majority of foreign men will not be terrorists, but it is a higher likelihood that they are then elderly people or children.
Allowing law enforcement agencies to use racial profiling to increase airport security is just one of the many good ways to make national security stronger.
