TKC's Dr. David Innes on Airport Security
Commentary featured in WORLD Magazine
Asst. Professor of Politics Dr. David Innes has some interesting -- and controversial -- things to say about the current airport security controversy in WORLD Magazine.
He said that we spend too much time making decent, law-abiding people take off their shoes and throw away half-eaten yogurt containers rather than focus on the "bad people" who engage in terrorism. Why? Because identifying "bad people" would require moral judgments and the establishment of profiles.
"It is only the frantic political left that considers applying such profiles indecent," Dr. Innes wrote. "But they are shrill and extremely intimidating. The Bush administration feared giving any appearance of discrimination, and the Obama administration would allow almost anything to happen rather than makeŚmuch less declareŚsuch judgments."
