There was tens of millions of dollars spent on security for the big game, everything from Blackhawk helicopters to F-16’s on call, to mobile X-Ray machines, drug dogs, bomb dogs, checkpoints, snipers, FBI and TSA everywhere, and thousands of security personnel were deployed to secure the area around Met-Life Stadium.
Well even with all of that security and all those people, one lone 9/11 truther was able to get inside the event and crash a news conference, and he did it with amazing ease.
Matthew Mills, 30, used an old pass from a concert he went to years ago and claimed to be “late for work” whenever security would stop him and ask what he was doing, can you imagine?
Apparently he hopped on an employee bus and rode it to the stadium, then at each checkpoint he said the same thing and they just kept letting him by. “I didn’t think that I’d get that far,” Mill said. “I just kept getting closer and closer. Once I got past the final gate and into the stadium, I was dumbfounded.”
As I said, security cost in the tens of millions and taxpayers were on the hook for all of it, so did they get their money’s worth considering he was able to walk right through?
One argument that could be made is that with the size of the event and number of people there it was impossible to check EVERY ID on every person, however isn’t that what all the extra security was for? It was reported that tickets weren’t even being checked on the way to the stadium even though we were reassured that nobody would be allowed to board a train or a bus without one, so what were all these extra security personnel doing?
This sheds light on a very valid question, is the government spending millions hijacking an event like this under the guise of “security” really worth it? The most “secure” event in the nation let someone waltz through their “iron clad” perimeter without so much as even being asked who he was. Now what if he had a bomb under his jacket or had ill intentions other than to raise awareness about 9/11?
When things like this happen it should make us all take a step back and think about the amount of freedom we’re giving up under the guise of being “safe”. after all, what’s the point of going through all of that if it’s not even effective?
