Providence Journal — The Rhode Island Affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union yesterday filed a federal lawsuit against the state police, alleging racial profiling and violation of the constitutional rights of 14 Guatemalan nationals during a July traffic stop that led to their detention by immigration officials.

Steven Brown, director of the Rhode Island affiliate, yesterday noted the unusual nature of the lawsuit filed by ACLU volunteer attorney V. Edward Formisano.

“It’s very rare for individuals like these plaintiffs to be willing to step forward and challenge questionable police practices that they’ve been subject to,? said Brown.

“The citizenship status of the plaintiffs is really irrelevant to this lawsuit. These were individuals who were in a van that was stopped for a minor traffic violation. The question is whether police have a right to detain individuals for no other reason than the way they look …?

So now the ACLU douche bags and civil rights gangsters are all up in arms over a Rhode Island State Trooper detaining 14 unidentified and identification less Guatemalan nationals that he ran across during a traffic stop. This country in knee deep in unidentified foreigners now, and although the article says that the citizenship status of the plaintiffs is irrelevant to the case, at least now we know who these 14 turkeys are are, and hopefully, what they are doing here.

This whole idea that someone shouldn’t be analyzed or scrutinized because of their ethnicity, age, sex, or any other physical characteristics is just more nonsense dreamed up by the far left nuts to help them to sleep better at night. Its pure insanity to think that racial profiling shouldn’t be used to fight crime. Maybe those knuckleheads want their local police department to be strictly reactive instead of proactive, but I certainly don’t.

Individuals shouldn’t be afraid or ashamed to profile either. If I’m not at home one night and one of my neighbors see a left handed, Chinese, midget, albino, transvestite walking out of my house with a TV on his/her (it’s) shoulder, I hope like hell they notice that something is wrong with that picture and have enough common sense to call the police.

Oh, and one more thing too. All of you sensitive type folks that think that “the man” is out to get you, and you get all defensive when you read a story like this; well I’m a white, heterosexual, male, conservative, Christian, southern, long-hair. I can deal with the stereotyping, and so can you. Just have to suck nit up, and always remember, nobody likes a crybaby.
