John Miller, NYPD deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism, said Wednesday: "We did extensive outreach to the truck rental business. We visited over 148 truck rental locations in this area. The industry has had a high level of awareness on this matter from the NYPD." And "Miller said that if a company is suspicious of a would-be renter, they usually delay or simply deny a rental to let police investigate."
Really? The companies deny rentals to suspicious characters? Is that so?
Sayfullo Saipov, the New York City truck jihad mass murderer, looks like a jihadi. But to acknowledge that would be to engage in racial profiling, and given the decidedly Islamic style of his facial hair (a hadith depicts Muhammad telling Muslims to trim their mustaches but not their beards, because the Jews and Christians trim their beards but not their mustaches), religious profiling, a manifestation of "Islamophobia," as well.
