Profiling is Wrong

Sky News : More Info on the London Bombers:

The four young men who carried out the London terror attacks were British-born suicide bombers, police sources have told Sky News.

For the record, my profile was, “10-15 Muslim males, aged 22-28. They will have British passports, and the leaders will have traveled to Syria, Iran, or North Africa several times in the last couple of years. All of them will be well known as devout Muslims and frequenters of London mosques.”

One of the bombers was named by locals as Shahzad Tanweer, 22, who neighbours said was a “very nice lad”.

Two of the other bombers were reported to be aged 30 and 19.

It still isn’t clear how many suspects they have, but we are up to seven (of my 10-15) so far:

Meanwhile, police have raided the homes of three of the four men in West Yorkshire along with three other houses in Leeds.

This article is more specific on the ages:

Three of the bombers are reported to be British males of Pakistani origin aged 19, 22 and 30 and from Leeds in West Yorkshire.

Oh, and on the “devout” side of things:

Neighbours said he was a “good Muslim” who lived with his parents, a younger brother and two sisters.

    It’s scary that these guys were “good neighbors.”

    Just like Mexi’s neighbor’s. Maybe they’re suicide drug dealers. (That wasn’t funny, but I tried.)

  2. I thought it was going to turn out to be a white guy getting revenge on some chick who dissed him for the captian of the cricket team
