NYC Mayor Vetoes NYPD Oversight
July 24, 2013
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has vetoed a pair of measures to create an NYPD inspector general and allow people to sue over racial profiling by officers.
Bloomberg said the measures, which seem likely to pass on a City Council veto override, would help criminals and terrorists, reports the New York Daily News.
His veto message called each measure "a dangerous and irresponsible bill that would make New Yorkers less safe."

I don't really understand "racial" profiling myself. In all honestly "profiling" is just a way of making an informed hypothesis of criminal behavior. I can't see how using race is part of the equation that tells you anything relative to crime. Take the word "profile" out of the sentence and ad "Hypothesis" in its place and then you would be more accurate as to the information you are seeking about a crime. If you make people think, then it becomes a non-situation. Same with the word "force"; ad another word which means exactly the same thing; "tension" and there would be no stigma attached to the action.
