David Harris Discusses Airport Security and Profiling on CBS Sunday Morning
Professor David Harris discussed airport security and the use of racial profiling in a report on CBS Sunday Morning on Sunday, April 11, 2010. The report surveyed recent changes in airport security in light of the Christmas Day attempt to bomb a passenger jet landing in Detroit. Harris explained that profiling is ineffective at catching terrorists even as it generates false positives; behavior profiling and the gathering and effective use of intelligence will work. The segment featuring Professor Harris was taped at Pitt Law and includes a glimpse of the program on profiling that he gave for several student groups on the subject.
