It is human nature to profile those who might commit a crime against you. If most robberies are committed in your neighborhood by young males sporting mullets, then those individuals attract profiling. If most bombers on airplanes are young middle-eastern looking men, then those individuals attract scrutiny. But I feel that having a federal agency screen passengers, and the extent that they touch, examine, individuals, violates everyones rights.
No, airport security profiling is not consistent with individual rights as it singles out individuals based on what may be inoccuous circumstances and treats them differently, and in many cases, with more malice than others are treated. Someone should not be screened simply because the person has a specfic skin tone or last name.
