Arabs buying cell phones get arrested

But if they’d been white, and buying cell phones to sell at a profit a) they wouldn’t have been arrested and b) probably would have been complimented for their capitalistic zeal.

Ditto for taking photos of a bridge that, oh, only zillions of others take pictures of. But these picture-takers were Palestinian ancestry so the local cops apparently decided they had to be terrorists.

The only good about these multiple instances of racist profiling is the police involved were humiliated when they had to let everyone go free. Maybe the resultant lawsuits will be a reminder to other police not to arrest someone because they are Middle Eastern.

I mean, does anyone actually believe any of these arrests would have happened if those involved were, say, middle-aged Anglos? Well of course they wouldn’t have.
