Using Racial Profiling in the Fight Against Terrorism

After the London bombings, New York City announced random bag searches on the subway. But with 7 million people a day in the system, how do police narrow down their pool of suspects? Neal Conan and guests examine the advantages -- and abuses -- of profiling to prevent terrorism.

Guests:

Tunku Varadarajan, editorial features editor for the Wall Street Journal

James Oddo, Republican city councilman from New York and minority leader

David Harris, professor at University of Toledo college of law and author of several books on racial profiling, including Good Cops: The Case for Preventive Policing and Profiles in Injustice: Why Racial Profiling Cannot Work
