Theodore Dalrymple on freelance profilers:

British passengers on a flight from Malaga to Manchester did a little impromptu terrorist profiling recently. Some already on the aircraft got off, while those waiting to get on refused to do so, until the flight crew removed from the plane two apparently South Asian young men who seemed to be talking Arabic.

The press has widely condemned the action of the skittish passengers.

Strange; nobody condemned Phillip Adams, yet he abandoned a flight even before he heard any Arabic. He’s a pre-profiler.
