Super Bowl Snipers
My 9 New Jersey ^ | Updated: Jan 29, 2014 10:45 AM CST | My 9 New Jersey

East Rutherford, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Along with excited and eager fans, SWAT teams and Snipers will be attending Super Bowl XLVIII. The reason for such high precautions is because the Super Bowl is a level one national security event.

Former FBI agent Jonathan Gilliam explains how snipers work in coordination with SWAT teams to give the fans and players ultimate safety.

“If you have an active shooter or you have anyone who may have a bomb. Snipers have a better angle then anyone who is on the ground to actually hit that target. It’s an entire team that communicates. You have individuals who are at high altitudes inside the arena and then you have individuals that are on the ground moving in and around the crowd,” he explained.

Gilliam discussed an exclusive video of a sniper- Initiated hostage rescue exercise. The video showed how snipers maneuver once shots are heard. Snipers are always hidden and are not visual. These same procedures will be taken if need be during the game.

Just because sniper and SWAT teams will be present at the game, doesn’t mean there is anything for game-goers to worry about. This is a typical assurance taken for an event like the Super Bowl, and the same protocol is always followed every year.

The snipers will just be doing their job so fans can have an enjoyably safe experience.

Since they hate us for our freedoms, it follows that we must become less free.

Journalism?

Do the editors and proofreaders even know the English language these days?

Figuring they’ll be checking bags for illicit food/drinks you’d think they’d find a bomb, maybe?

I love it when cops use the official cop language to sound so very smart.

At least they were issued binoculars so they wouldn’t have to use their rifle scopes to look around...

Do they get a patch that says “Official Sniper: Superbowl XLVIII” ?

Maybe they are preparing for a BLACK SUNDAY.

Opps! Can I say that or should I say “Melanin Enhanced SUNDAY”. Never can be sure.

What if it is Bill Ayers or his terrorist wife Bernadine Dohrn that is shooting or placing a bomb?
Will they be able to shoot them as they are personal friends of barack hussein obama?

I do believe that terrorists, whoever they may be, are aware that any terrorism at the Super Bowl would bring immediate death to all members, at the stadium or not. Angry fans would do the job for the snipers and fans around the country would do the subsequent ‘arrests’. ;-)

Only if you don’t apply the transitive property of possession to Baltimore’s record, in Cleveland’s favor.

(In a sane & just world, Cleveland’s expansion team would be in Indy, while Baltimore and Cleveland would have their old teams back)

Maybe so. But with terrorists anticipating death and shouting Allah Akhbar (sp?) on a suicide mission, we have to be vigilant.

Boy that guy in the front sure has a big bore “sniper rifle”. That won’t cause any problems in a crowd.

Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions, has police snipers stationed in the upper level for every football game, just as all other stadiums...........this ain’t no big deal.

I sent an email to the editor of my hometown paper, about an online story that stated:

“The team has asked its thousands of fans to attend the City Council meeting next Tuesday and where their colors...”

No reply after two days, and the story has not been corrected. My journalism professor is spinning in her grave, at present :(

The danger of SpellCheck. "Then" is spelled correctly, it's just not the correct word to use in that sentence.

Considering the numbers of armed Israeli soldiers walkiing their streets, would make the same statement to their citizens?

For real?

I've been to dozens of stadiums, and yes they have security cameras that can zero in on an unruly fan, and some even have jails, but snipers?

Even Chicago and Philly don't have those. Snipers, I mean.

For real?

Perhaps I shouldn't have spoken for other stadiums.....I have a friend who worked security at Ford field who told me that every game day a squad of Detroit police officers would arrive early with their rifles then strategically position themselves around the upper rim.....

Thank you for conceding that you are attempting to defend and justify the loss of American liberty per your subject change.

Enjoy your loss of liberty. May your chains rest on you lightly.
