Finally someone is challenging the ACLU in New York over subway searches. http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=45611 Calling it a "fund-raising stunt," Swarthout asserted the American Civil Liberties Union's action may also be dangerous to the citizens of New York City. "These searches are part of a well-thought-out security plan and may stop a terrorist from walking onto the subway trains and blowing up innocent Americans," he said. The ACLU's suit, to be filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, will claim the city's new policy violates constitutional guarantees of equal protection and prohibitions against unlawful searches and seizures, according to New York Newsday. At the same time, the lawsuit argues, the policy does almost nothing to protect the city from terrorism. The ACLU also contends the measure allows the possibility of racial profiling, despite the requirement that officers must randomly screen passengers. "While concerns about terrorism of course justify indeed, require aggressive police tactics, those concerns cannot justify the Police Department's unprecedented policy of subjecting millions of innocent people to suspicionless searches," the suit states, according to Newsday. Swarthout points out the ACLU also has called metal detectors in airports an invasion of privacy. "There is no pleasing the ACLU, because improving society or protecting the rights of American citizens is no longer its goal," he charged.
