Boston: TSA program led to racial profiling

A newspaper says Transportation Security Administration officers at Logan International Airport allege that a program intended to help flag possible terrorists based on passengers’ mannerisms has led to racial profiling. According to The New York Times, in interviews and internal complaints it has obtained, more than 30 officers involved in the “behavior detection” program at Logan say the operation not only targets Middle Easterners, but also passengers who fit certain profiles – such as Hispanics traveling to Miami, or blacks wearing baseball caps backward. The TSA says it’s investigating the allegations.
