BBC NEWS | UK | UK Muslims feel 'under suspicion':

"Lord Ahmed also said it was possible illegal immigrants would run if challenged by the police.

'We know that there are many thousands or hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants and if they're challenged by the police, they're not going to stand there and produce their ID, they obviously will try and run.

'And whilst we need to catch those illegal immigrants or asylum seekers, nevertheless we can't shoot them because they're not terrorists.'

Anyone with dark skin who was running for a bus or Tube could be thought to be about to detonate a bomb, he said."

I can't find the reference at present, but I saw a blog recently, discussing how one learned not to run for a bus in Northern Ireland ; this isn't about race or religion - this is about terror.
