Ex-deputy FBI chief to ‘Post’: Racial profiling not the right direction

Racial profiling, anti-Muslim rhetoric and policing measures that violate civil rights would harm law enforcement efforts to stop homegrown “lone wolf” terrorists like the gunman who murdered 49 in Orlando last week, the former deputy head of the FBI told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

“I won’t get into a politician’s comments on racial profiling, but I don’t think racial profiling is the direction for the FBI to take,” said Timothy P. Murphy, adding: “That’s a way to destroy the trust in these communities.”
