http://www.azcentral.com/news/artic...-assault-rifle-seized-abrk.html#ixzz10PwKjQSc In Az, checkpoints are a normal way of life. Many people gripe about check points, claiming they are unnecessary and unconstitutional. Usually, you are waved right through if you do not "look" suspicious and you are not of certain ethnic group. These Mexican nationals were caught smuggling a .50BMG Armalite rifle. The drug cartels have publicly announced their plans to use wsnipers to kill our sheriff deputies and border agents. Had the border agents not used racial profiling, they would not have found the rifle. Notice in the article, it states, the rifle was found on the second inspection of the vehicle. The second inspection was a result of the agent's suspicion due to the ethnicity of the occupants. Next time you are inconvenienced by a road block or check point, remember this.
