U.S. likely to widen ban on profiling of criminal suspects
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department is likely to widen a ban on the profiling of suspects by race to include other categories such as religion, country of origin, gender and sexual orientation, a person familiar with an internal review said on Thursday.
Broadening the ban would mark a major policy shift for U.S. law enforcement and would address a frequent complaint by minorities in America who feel they are singled out for unwarranted extra scrutiny.
The department's review of racial profiling continued and it was not certain when a final decision would be made, according to the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
