Who had a C average grade in high school? And went to Yale?
George W. Bush.

He followed in Prescott Bush's footsteps.
Vijay Shah sounds like an American to me...

After watching that video? The police messed with Vijay because he had middle east skin. As soon as Vijay spoke? They should have let him go. If you listen to the end of this documentary? Vijay speaks like an American. The police aren't all there!

Speaking with a foreign accent is grounds to detain someone? Just because you're from a Middle Eastern or South Asian country doesn't mean you're a potential terrorist. That's still a form of racial profiling.

Oh, and I might add that the perpetrators of the biggest (non-governmental) terrorist act on American soil before 9-11 were Americans--Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. Nobody started profiling white men after the Oklahoma City bombing though.

I agree.

If you google the story using the lawyers name (John Pavlos) and Vijay's you ill find that the most upsetting aspect of it is that they had NO probable cause. No matter what color he was that was mighty F*d up. We are still hoping he presses charges:)
