I kinda see the rationality behind a certain degree of profiling...

I mean if your country is at war with a country primarily composed of a single ethnic or religious group it's not altogether unreasonable to presume that people of that ethnic or religious group are more likely to harbour ill feelings towards your country

It's not nice... but I mean... I dunno if you use Bayesian inference... it makes sense.

Well I mean, morality is arbitrary. Bayesian Inference is used to determine the value of an action strictly on the basis of statistical significance.

It looks at the state you were in before, the likelihood of action x resulting in y, the likelihood of y occurring for no reason whatsoever, and the likelihood of a positive indicator on the test for y being correct.

State prior to action might be a lack of terrorist threat. Action x is racial profiling and y is the presence of danger of terrorist attack. With no racial profiling there might be a ratio of 1 used to represent it (like 0.05) and with racial profiling the likelihood might be 0.04.

When danger of terrorist threat occurs, variable z (which might be 0.01) is the value that represents the likelihood that the change in threat is actually a result of taking or not making an action.

It's admittedly harder to apply to racial profiling than something easily tested for like HIV

www.washingtonsblog.com/2013/05/muslims-only-carried-out-2-5-percent-of-terrorist-attacks-on-u-s-soil-between-1970-and-2012.html
Terrorist attacks by Muslim extremist on U.S. soil is 6%, 42% is Latino, and 24% is extremist left wing groups. All according to this article that was posted fairly recently. Many people justify the stereotyping of Muslims based on terrorist stats that they believe show Muslims committing a majority of attacks, but in reality, by that same logic we would be even more stereotyping of Latinos, as well as the left wing groups.


TLR The stereotyping of Muslim Americans isn't really based on stats, it's based on pushed views by the media, as well as an aggressive government with ambitions that are ambiguous to the public.

all the information and proof against the ideology that "every muslim is a terrorist" is there for everyone to see, so it's not as if we're allowing terrorists to be the only representation of Islam, the majority of people simply want to sit there and push another blind crusade. If that one person that you had spoke to did change their ideology, they would have changed it because they are a smart and rational person, not because of you or me. Had we never spoke to them, they would have found the answer on their own

But many do not look for it. Many do not see that their views are wrong. Why? Media and family. These two factors exert a lot of influence. However, stumbling across arguments on the Internet or listening to a friend comes to them. They don't need to search for it. If we all had to search for the truth every time we found it, we would be very ignorant. Sometimes the truth comes to a person before they even knew they were wrong.
A person does not have to be smart or struggling to change in order to be a good person and make the right decisions. I've met plenty of "stupid" people who were very accepting and kind. Not because they looked around and analyzed every moral issue to its core, but because the right people enlightened them. It can happen. I've seen it happen.
Sorry if this is rambly. I'm in the midst of writing an essay right now and it's dominating my thought process.

why worry about people following a religion if it doesn't have anything to do with the violence? what's the difference between muslims that live in your neighborhood and muslims living in some other country?

Not saying that terrorism isn't a problem (speaking as a muslim here) but if you're going to pin the issue on the religion and thereby vilify everyone following that religion you need to research the belief extensively to decide if it's the cause of the aggression.

Why are you trying to make this a religious debate?

I'm simply accepting the rationality of profiling. If you are at war with Afghanistan, or Iraq, or whichever islamic country the US decides is evil then its citizens who are predominantly muslim are more likely to harbour ill feelings towards the states, no?

Ideally we won't need profiling. I like what Israel has started working with. A booth that will detonate any explosives on your person. Until measures like that can be implemented to prevent terror without having to resort to bayesian inference, bayesian is the most logical method to use.

It's not personal. It's just statistics. To be frank, if muslims from a particular region do not present a significant thread by bayesian inference then I'd not approve profiling. If they do, then I do. It's not about being Muslim, it's about being a threat. If it were Greeks, Christians, Jews, Leftists, Rightists, ANY group that presents a statistically significant threat then a degree of profiling makes sense.

I'm telling you to leave religion out of the profiling and just stick to Iraqi's, afghans, greeks etc because there is no credible evidence that says every single person following this religion is going to be a threat. If you drop a bomb on Iraq you're not going to be hunted and hated by every muslim, you're going to be hunted and hated by every Iraqi

the reason I'm saying this is because this is going to escalate to the point where everyone is going to assume I'm a security threat just because I practice Islam, even though my political and national beliefs reside with the country I stay in. Imagine if your child was assaulted at school just because his parent(s) go on funnyjunk

I don't support assault.

If the stats don't support the inference than so be it. If your claim that muslims do not identify strongly enough with islamic countries to represent a statistical threat, then the data will prove you right. If the data proves you right then we don't disagree.

I just hate the PC view that everyone is equal and no one is swayed to action by global politics. Certain demographics ARE more dangerous at certain times.

but your idea of profiling is going to lead to assault, if people start mistrusting people based on their demographic. If 5% of a demographic statistically are violent (lets say 1000 pie eaters) and you lock them all up, you've foiled 50 terrorist attempts but at the cost of incarcerating 950 innocent people. What are you going to say now, "better safe than sorry"? "better them than me"?

my idea of profiling is more to do with airport pat down selections.

Inconveniences, not life damaging occurences. Little old white ladies might represent a far weaker threat than... well even little old muslim ladies if they represent the right demographic.

Bayesian inference is very accurate in determining the statistical significance of things. You could be tested HIV positive and Bayesian inference will still only consider you 33% likely to have HIV due to likelihood of false positives and the low likelihood of an average person being tested HIV positive in general.

It is mainly a concentrated region where most of the terrorists derive from, but still even then profiling people from that area statistically is a stretch. Rationally speaking I can't really say I agree that this profiling is effective in the context of terrorism prevention.

Also there's the fact that it's easier to be a leftist terorrist than a muslim terrorist due to how aggressively the government pursues islamic terror suspects... I dunno. We need more research.

Or it could mean that those members of the leftist extremists groups are just that, extremists, while most Muslims are just peaceful people.

I don't claim that extremists aren't a minority, just that if the minority exists primarily within a specific demographic you ought to consider that.

if 99.9% of muslims are cool, and 99.99% of non muslims are cool, then there's still a significant number of uncool muslims compared to non-muslims.

If it turns out that leftists are likely to be a statistically more extremist demographic then I'd say the same about them too.

Yes but those leftist groups as well as Latinos have committed a far higher amount of acts of terrorism in this country, I'm saying it's not fair to Muslim Americans to be stereotyped, especially when it's claimed to be done in national defense. That's not fair to the people that have lived their entire lives here peacefully following their faith, that's not what this country is supposed to be about.

That's fine... I'd say you should look up peer reviewed studies through google scholar rather than buzz news sites. They're more likely to skew information.

beyond that, I harbour no resentment to muslims in particular. I only put forward that bayesian inference profiling is rational

You say, "its not even their opinions". Well thats total ********. You only think what they say is "stupid" because you've been influenced by the bias of the prominent liberal media. Even funnyjunk is a form of liberal media.

FOX is much more slanted as MSNBC though.

Comparison arguments will only work if the two things are comparable.

Otherwise you just sound like people comparing the US and Nazi Germany as equally moral. [Sorry for the ad hitlerum, but I used it because it's pretty common just use it as an example of different extremes.]

Personally I don't watch MSNBC, or anything that labels itself either liberal or progressive, I don't watch the news to confirm my political views I watch it to get input so I can test my views.

So... Wait... I'm kind of confused. I thought news was just to say the things that were going on. Local news would be new events of a local area, national news of new events in the nation, etc. Why, no, HOW can there be a bias in political news? I mean, it's like "Candidate A is promoting X values, Candidate B got Y votes, and Politician C is doing this, that, 'n the other thing."

You're right. That's exactly how it should be, purely informational and unbiased. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Every form of media has influential power and use it to sway people into thinking the way they do. Its not lying, is just purely showing information that makes whatever they're supporting look good.

though I'll not jump on the "black people are violent" train, it does demonstrate that the single biggest cause of homocide is poverty, since hispanic and black make up the two biggest groups. Essentially poverty and organized crime create murders, much more then anything else.

yes, basically the majority of those are probably gang-related (yet you never hear about all of the black on black crime in this country, do you? only the white 20-something males with an AR-15). and where do you think those gang members are getting their guns? For the most part they are using stolen and illegal guns bought on the black market.

really what I'm trying to say is that all of this "NRA and gun owners are responsible for muh chilluns being murdered" is all ******** caused by people ignoring reality

"Many people believe that a bad social environment
is a major contributor to crime. They believe
that if people of all races had the same education,
income, and social status, there would be no race
differences in crime rates. Academic research, however,
shows that these differences persist even after
controlling for social variables....The correlation between violent crime and the
percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic
is 0.78 even when poverty, education, and
unemployment are controlled, versus 0.81 when they
are not. In layman’s terms, the statistical results suggest
that even if whites were just as disadvantaged
as blacks and Hispanics the association between race
and violent crime would still be almost as great."

This **** again.
A. FOX viewers are probably the people least likely to commit a crime. They're (90% of them) Christian and above 30. They're statistically not going to commit a crime at high levels.
B. Steward counts suicide as a murder. WHAT! He considers someone dying from a terrorist attack the same thing as if I were to shoot myself!
C. O'Riley has a point, though I disagree with it. You cannot write it off with rhetoric. Do you know why all these "idiots" from fox never change their mind. Nobody is willing to have an actual discussion with them. There's what, one liberal on The Five? If you people keep blindly insulting FOX than you're no better than MSNBC.
D. Fox has some good shows such as Red Eye and Stossel that feature Agnostic Libertarians as hosts. Meaning, it's not a network of Christian right winged evangelicals.
E. Always leave the Bulgarians alone

B. Suicide is one hundred times easier with a gun than anything else.
C. Nobody argues with Fox viewers because ninety percent of Fox viewers don't debate, they argue the same moot points about 'muh freedums'.
