It's not racism, it's the law. If you can't prove you are an American Citizen at any point, then you will be detained. Don't like it? Tough. Their doing it in Arizona, and we are doing it here in Wisconsin.

No one finds this slightly suspicious?
Maybe it is just the crazed conspiracy theorist in me, but something seems a little fishy with this whole story. I mean, this is coming on the heels of two big stories from this state. Think about it... The immigration bill and the bill requiring a birth certificate for all presidential candidates... Not only is this story getting people riled up about the immigration issue, but it puts a different spin on the whole, "you must show your birth certificate" issue.
I'm not pointing a finger at any one person that is connected with the story. I'm just pointing out that it seems to me this was orchestrated in some way to prove a double point.

That's fine...you can profile...I can profile...a marketing company can profile.
But no LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER should be profiling. They should be looking for people breaking laws...not trying to "profile" to try to guess who might break the law or might have alread broken the law.
That is the difference...and that is what is wrong with this situation.
Ok, I'll admit I didn't see this coming and I defended this bill. It sucks that racial profiling does go on, but what can we do?

However, I did not mean that in a racist way.
It was racist and you are showing your ignorance plainly.
I can't wait for the first hispanic cop to detain a white guy...then we will see you SCREAMING how unjust that is.
