Senators Joe Lieberman (ID-CT), Jon Kyl (R-AZ) and Susan Collins (R-ME) have introduced on the Senate side a companion bill “to provide immunity to individuals who report suspicious activities.” The protection afforded “would provide civil immunity in American courts for citizens who, acting in good faith, report threats to our transportation systems to appropriate law-enforcement and transportation-system officials, without fear of being sued. The bill would not protect individuals who knowingly make false statements.”

 

The press release of the three senators stated, “In a speech to the U.S. Senate, Collins explained that the recent arrests in Fort Dix, New Jersey, which foiled a plot to attack and kill American soldiers, was the result of a tip from a vigilant citizen, coupled with effective coordination by state and federal law enforcement officials.”

 

In the Minneapolis case, the action taken against the six Muslims in removing them from the plane was based on their conduct, not on ethnic profiling. Witnessing suspicious acts and reporting them is no different than bystanders reporting suspicious activities to a district attorney, which is a privileged act. Those voting against the Peter King amendment were foolish and demonstrate that political correctness can sometimes trump reason.
