Racial profiling is great, and we should use in the USA, but the libtards call it racist. However, since the libtards run the university they give 200 points bonis to some candidates on their SAT scores, and lower prices. That's why I am not a libtard, as they are hypocrites. Oh, but they can call you racist too, if you oppose their propaganda. Oh, I am sorry, they call you a rapist too.

UNETHICAL ?? NOTHING is unethical about racial profiling. NOT racially profiling is stupid. The pendulum has gone too far in the other direction. IF races RATIONALLY associated with negative behavioral tendencies -- PRESSURED MEMBERS TO CHANGE? No effort would be need be applied to stop people from inferring stereotypical behavior. The stereotype would vanish. Look at the origins of "ROUTINE ACTIVITY THEORY" The race that propagates the behavior is the problem. NOT the people who recognize the pattern.

There is a lot of false information here in this video about the interview at the Israeli Airport. The interview most of the time is performed by a 22-26 year old girl that is usually laughing and joking around with her co workers before the interview and asks a fraction of the questions listed in the video and asks them very quickly and doesn’t look at your face at all. I’ve been through the airport 13 times in my life. It’s the same shit. This video just tries to make Israel’s airport seem godly. It’s not lol...

I think what you forgot to mention about the Israeli airport, ist that passenger profiling is done loooong before they reach the airport. The Israeli secret services such as the shin bet are everywhere and know everything about everyone entering and leaving the country, the questions asked at the airport are just to make sure you aren't lying, but are not necessary for them to profile you

I worked for TSA at jfk airport.. the Israeli method isn't viable in the USA. The American public is far too sensitive and quick to claim abuse, harassment and other "my rights!" Issues. To say tsa doesn't do anything or stop any threats is extremely bias to not knowing internal sensitive data. I believe these numbers are openly available but on avg. The TSA stops over 30 firearms and well over 100 knives from getting passed the security checkpoint. For prospective 9/11 hijackers allegedly used box cutters. Effectively the TSA in theory stops well over 150 hijackings per month.

i said it before and i'll say it again- profiling IS NOT a bad thing when it comes to security ans safety. it has been factually proven countless times that a muslim, specifically an arab muslim, has a huge chance of doing a violent act. similar to how american police are cautious when checking an african american as they, again factually proven countless times, do the majority of crimes in the US despite being a minority.

The Israelis are developing an airport security device that eliminates the privacy concerns that come with full-body scanners. It’s an armored booth you step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on your person. Israel sees this as a win-win situation for everyone, with none of this crap about racial profiling. It will also eliminate the costs of long and expensive trials. So the next time you’re in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion and, shortly thereafter, an announcement: “Attention to all standby passengers, El Al is pleased to announce a seat available on flight 670 to London,” you’ll know their system is working!

if nothing has happened yet, and our current system is working why change it, this added security is still going to come at a price, perhaps increasing the cost of travel. and why do this if we don't need too.

Interesting point on how making planes so expensive causes more death because people have to drive. It costs me and my wife about $250 to drive to California to visit family. If we flew, it would be about $250 each. Meaning flying is twice as expensive for both of us. But I’ve been really nervous about other drivers, and almost involved in several high speed accidents while driving. Interesting point. I wish that I could fly for $50-$100. We could travel every month, not once or twice a year.

I've been to Ben Gurion airport twice lately, arriving and departing from Israel. When I arrived, I went through a quick interview, consisting of a few very basic questions (where I'm from, why I'm visiting Israel, where I'm staying etc), asked by a bored dude who wasn't really watching me that closely. Then I got my visa and proceeded to waiting a very long time for my luggage (almost made me miss the last bus to Jerusalem). When I was departing, I was nervous to arrive at the airport early enough, after all I heard about the Israeli security. That time around, all the security procedures were lax, and I'm not sure if I even went through the interview, as I don't know if that one quick question asked by a random technical employee counts. I ended up having about 2 hours to spare, even though the train I used to get to the airport arrived over half an hour late (and at the wrong platform for whatever reason). Which brings me to another point - when you arrive at the airport by train (like thousands of people daily), there are no guards inspecting anything. I don't know if cars arriving at the airport are being checked, but in that case it would seem a bit random - why would you check the people who could afford renting a car, but not the ones using cheap public transport? I'm not even complaining - it was easier and less stressful that way, and as said in the video, plane hijackings aren't really a thing anymore. Maybe some of that happened just because I'm white, but I feel like the myth of Israeli airport security is just that - a myth, and the truth is way more similar to any other airport in the developed world.

The question that was never asked is "how many terrorist attacks are dissuaded by airport security" and I'd say it's extremely important and probably quite high, although almost impossible to quantify

No attacks on any flight originating in the USA- TSA has done it's job to date perfectly . So your statement of no terror attacks stopped ? junk video. You could have saved thousands of people time - just say they focus on intent not the means of attack .... Behavior Detection Officers at TSA and US airports since 2006 ...

International airports require you to take your shoes off and place them in the bin. Regional airports don’t require you to do this, but for extra security it is an option to do this anywhere just so you can prove to the security officers that you don’t have anything dangerous with you

I think everyone should Use israels methods. When we had a terrorist attack in sweden i just thought of our AirPort and border controll. Like imagine mr Muhammed Rolling up to the swedish border. With a super shaddy story. Because of the threat of extremist muslim men. Sadly we need to watch them closer. Id rather have a little ”racism” then my people suffering.

Big issue, here, Wendover! You equivocate the role of the TSA in the prevention of terrorism with the prevention of terrorism, period. That's a big mistake! Just because there have been no US-originated attacks does not mean the TSA prevented them. This is a really simple correlation does not entail causation mistake. All that's necessary to show this error is to consider that there could have been other, more salient reasons why there have been no US-originating airplane attacks. For example, the vastly increased counter-terrorism funding to various Defense Agencies, or the fact that Intelligence Agencies have worked to prevent any sorts of these plots from happening, or the fact that 9/11 was such a wake-up call to US Intelligence Agencies that, ignoring the huge increase in funding they received, they were bound and determined to use every asset available to them to never let something like that happen again. You presented no evidence that it was, in fact, *because of* the TSA that there were no more attacks. The fact of the matter is you're asking us to believe that an Agency which has repeatedly been found to be an overwhelming failure when evaluated (as you showed in your video!) is nevertheless somehow still in some way responsible for preventing any attacks. The only thing this can be is a tacit defense of security theater! It cannot have prevented attacks because it functioned - objectively it does not - so the only other thing you could be arguing here is that the TSA prevented attacks because it makes it look like it might be harder... and that's security theater. "If it looks like it could prevent stuff, people will think it does and so they won't try any funny business." This ain't it, chief.

Stupidest video ever. I'm sure almost everyone agrees.
Warren Fletcher (1 month ago)
Stop abusing stats and normalising numbers. You can't make a video on how gambling leverages human idiosyncrasies and then decide to ignore it later on . Yes this video came out before that video but what you're doing is pandering to get views on a video by video basis. I love your videos. But be consistent. Yea I get it it. It's impossible to survive in this market place if you stick to one viewpoint. Fine, then acknowledge the fact that stats are almost always a simplification of the facts. 100% of people on earth die therefore there's no point living right? And yet everyone doesn't kill themselves. Stats without regarding humanities quirks is shallow. It's misleading and its wrong. Be responsible and stop using easy contextless stats
