What is profiling? What is ethnic profiling?
Do you believe ethnic profiling may be a constitutional method for obtaining information in
police investigations? Explain.
Answer:
Profiling is making an analysis, and recording person’s behavioral characteristics, as well as
psychological. This type of analysis is done to predict what a person is capable of doing. Also, it
is done to identify a subgroup of people, and so on. Ethnical profiling is taking g in
consideration of a person’s ethic or racial characteristics. What police are trying to find, is
whether or not a person is likely to commit a particular crime, or to behave in a certain manner.
If you may attention to offender profiling, it is often times confused with ethnic profiling.
However, ethnic profiling is directed more so towards the people who are non-white. This type
of profiling has been common for many years, but it came to light, of the abuse by law
enforcement. Yes I understand, if you find a million dollars on the ground, then you will keep
looking on the ground every time. At the same time you can expect people to be criminals
because of the color of their skin.
I do not believe that ethnic profiling can be a constitutional method for obtaining information in
police investigations. First, the government has no right to search a person due to ethnic
profiling. The Fourth Amendment guarantees that right to be safe from unreasonable search and
seizure without cause.
