Metrorail riders face searches

Larry Lebowitz has this article in the Miami Herald telling us that Metrorail riders will now be subject to searches. Put aside the constitutional issues for a sec -- what a waste of resources! If a terrorist chooses Miami as a target, it seems that the rail would be low on the list of possible strikes... In any event, Milton Hirsch and I debated the profiling issue in the Champion a couple years ago. Milt takes the position that profiling is constitutional while I say that it isn't.

I agree. It is an absurd waste of resources.
