Hijacking threat on a plane? OF COURSE, the Pakistani Muslims on board are the first ones you investigate
No, it ISN’T racial profiling, it’s just plain common sense. It’s not as if this were the first time Muslims were ‘acting suspicious’ on a plane. And it’s not the first time CAIR has threatened a lawsuit.
During Thursday’s hijack threat at San Francisco International Airport, a flight attendant on board American Airlines Flight 24 told police that two people who happened to be from Pakistan were acting suspiciously. Now, there are accusations of racial profiling.
San Francisco police and FBI agents approached the Pakistani couple, handcuffed them and escorted them off the plane. Sources say it was a flight attendant who pointed them out after learning of the possibility of a hijacking. Police defended their actions saying in that kind of situation, a lead is always taken seriously.
Terrorist Front Group CAIR says they are considering taking action against police and the airlines.
