NEW ORLEANS (1/31/13) — With tens of thousands of people expected to flood New Orleans for the Super Bowl and Mardi Gras, the city is a prime target for terrorists — that’s why the most technologically advanced security system is now in place.

“We ask your cooperation in arriving at the screening gates well in advance of the time you want to be in your seats,” said Jeffrey Miller, NFL Chief Security Officer.

“Fans can expect to be watched, sniffed and pawed as they enter the Superdome,” the WJZ report went on to state.

“Fans can expect to pass through metal detectors and a pat-down search. After the pat-down search, fans will be asked to unzip any coats. All bags will be x-rayed,” Miller said.

“TSA of course is working on making sure the airspace around the stadium is closed during the game. Also working providing K-9 teams and screeners and all the rest,” said Janet Napolitano, Homeland Security Secretary.

“While security is extremely tight at the Superdome, they’re also monitoring bars and restaurants in the city–where fans will gather to watch the game as well as maritime and hotel components as well.”

“Customs and Border Protection has been on the ground. They’ve been actually scanning all the cargo coming into this area since Monday morning to make sure everything is safe,” said Napolitano.

“And while at this point there are no credible terrorist threats here in New Orleans, they’re doing everything they can as a precaution…

NFL Outlines Super Bowl XLVI Security and Game Day Plans

INDIANAPOLIS – Security screening at Lucas Oil Stadium will be significantly heightened for the Super Bowl. The National Football League strongly recommends that spectators minimize the number and size of all items carried into the stadium.

Items carried by spectators will be carefully inspected. Everyone entering the stadium on Super Bowl Sunday will be subject to security screenings, including metal detectors, pat-downs, and other special security checks. Spectators choosing not to consent to the NFL’s security requirements will be refused admission.

Certain items may not be brought into the stadium. Small bags, subject to check, will be permitted but binocular and camera cases, among other items, will not be allowed. Spectators are urged to carry nothing larger than a small purse or bag. The NFL and Lucas Oil Stadium will not hold prohibited or excluded items for spectators (see attached for list of prohibited items).

Temporary flight restrictions will be in place on Super Bowl Sunday that will prohibit private aircraft from operating in a large radius around the sports complex. No blimps or other aircraft will be allowed to circle the premises.

Federal and state law enforcement resources and the U.S. military support area law enforcement, fire, emergency management and public health entities. In addition, private security companies hired by the NFL also contribute to the high level of security applied to the Super Bowl.

SUPER BOWL GAMEDAY FAN INFORMATION

Traffic flow, parking and stadium entry will be much different for the Super Bowl than during the regular season at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Stadium gates open at 2 p.m. (ET). Fans are encouraged to arrive early to avoid delays and expedite entrance for everyone. In-stadium festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. (ET) with kickoff at approximately 6:30 p.m. (ET).

Only people with tickets or credentials will be allowed within the security perimeter around Lucas Oil Stadium. Everyone entering the stadium, including children, must have a ticket for the game. The largest and most convenient checkpoint for entering the stadium is to the north inside the Indiana Convention Center with entry to the ICC near the intersection of Maryland and Capitol Street or Georgia and Capitol Street. Additional spectator checkpoints are located to the east and south.

Wheelchair attendees and their companions must have tickets designated “wheelchair.”

Fans can go through any of the screening points on the security perimeter and then proceed to the gate marked on their tickets. Fans will not be able to re-enter the secured perimeter once they leave.

NFL FAN CODE OF CONDUCT PROGRAM

NFL teams implemented a fan code of conduct policy in 2008. The code of conduct will be enforced during the Super Bowl. The NFL is committed to creating a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable experience for all fans. As such, guests are required to refrain from the following:

• Behavior that is unruly, disruptive, or illegal in nature

• Intoxication or other signs of alcohol impairment that results in irresponsible behavior

• Foul or abusive language or obscene gestures

• Interference with the progress of the game (including throwing objects on the field)

• Failing to follow instruction of stadium personnel

• Verbal or physical harassment of opposing team fans

Guests who are subjected to unruly fans, or witness violations of the Fan Code of Conduct, can quickly receive assistance by calling a special telephone number or sending a text to anonymously report fan conduct violations. These phone and text lines will be visibly posted in the stadium during the game. Fans also may visit one of the Guest Services/Information Booths at any point during the Super Bowl. NFL guest services staff will be on standby ready to assist.

Sooner or later it will become apparent to all that the TSA’s agenda is not what it appears to be…

The grandmother of a 4-year-old girl who became hysterical during a security screening at a Kansas airport said Wednesday that the child was forced to undergo a pat-down after hugging her, with security agents yelling and calling the crying girl an uncooperative suspect.

The incident has been garnering increasing media and online attention since the child’s mother, Michelle Brademeyer of Montana, detailed the ordeal in a public Facebook post last week. The Transportation Security Administration is defending its agents, despite new procedures aimed at reducing pat-downs of children.

The child’s grandmother, Lori Croft, told The Associated Press that Brademeyer and her daughter, Isabella, initially passed through security at the Wichita airport without incident. The girl then ran over to briefly hug Croft, who was awaiting a pat-down after tripping the alarm, and that’s when TSA agents insisted the girl undergo a physical pat-down.

Isabella had just learned about “stranger danger” at school, her grandmother said, adding that the girl was afraid and unsure about what was going on.

“She started to cry, saying ‘No I don’t want to,’ and when we tried talking to her she ran,” Croft said. “They yelled, ‘We are going to shut down the airport if you don’t grab her.'”

But she said the family’s main concern was the lack of understanding from TSA agents that they were dealing with a 4-year-old child, not a terror suspect.

THE SUSPECT

________________________________________

“There was no common sense and there was no compassion,” Croft said. “That was our biggest fault with the whole thing — not that they are following security procedures, because I understand that they have to do that.”

Brademeyer, of Missoula, Mont., wrote a public Facebook post last week about the April 15 incident, claiming TSA treated her daughter “no better than if she had been a terrorist.” The posting was taken down Wednesday. Another post said the family had filed formal complaints with the TSA and the airport.

The TSA released a statement Tuesday saying it explained to the family why additional security procedures were necessary and that agents didn’t suspect or suggest the child was carrying a firearm.

“TSA has reviewed the incident and determined that our officers followed proper screening procedures in conducting a modified pat-down on the child,” the agency said.

The statement noted that the agency recently implemented modified screening procedures for children age 12 and younger to further reduce the need for pat-downs of children, such as multiple passes through a metal detector and advanced imaging technology.

“These changes in protocol will ultimately reduce — though not eliminate — pat-downs of children,” the statement said. “In this case, however, the child had completed screening but had contact with another member of her family who had not completed the screening process.”

U.S. Sen. Jon Tester, a Montana Democrat, pressed the TSA for more information Wednesday. Tester, a member of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said he was concerned the TSA went too far.

“I am a staunch advocate for effective transportation security, but I’m also a strong advocate for common sense and the freedoms we enjoy as Americans,” Tester wrote to TSA Administrator John Pistole. “Any report of abuse of the power entrusted to officers of the TSA is especially concerning — especially if it involves children.”

In a phone interview from her home in Fountain Valley, Calif., Croft said Brademeyer tried to no avail to get TSA agents to use a wand on the frightened girl or allow her to walk through the metal detector again. She also said TSA agents wanted to screen her granddaughter alone in a separate room.

“She was kicking and screaming and fighting and in hysterics,” Croft said. “At that point my daughter ran up to her against TSA’s orders because she said, ‘My daughter is terrified, I can’t leave her.'”

The incident went on for maybe 10 minutes, until a manager came in and allowed agents to pat the girl down while she was screaming but being held by her mother. The family was then allowed to go to their next gate with a TSA agent following them.

Croft said that for the first few nights after coming home, Isabelle had nightmares and talked about kidnappers. She said TSA agents had shouted at the girl, telling her to calm down and saying the suspect wasn’t cooperating.

“To a 4-year-old’s perspective that’s what it was to her because they didn’t explain anything and she did not know what was going on,” Croft said. “She saw people grabbing at her and raising their voices. To her, someone was trying to kidnap her or harm her in some way.” (Sources: The Washington Post, AP)

Swimsuit model Bar Refaeli joined the growing ranks of celebs protesting invasive TSA patdowns, when she tweeted yesterday:

“I got a security ‘patdown’ by a woman at the airport that made me feel very uncomfortable and left no doubt about her sexual preferences.”

Refaeli sent the message to her 172,000 followers who quickly shared similar experiences.

Unfortunately for the swimsuit model, her uncomfortable encounter with the TSA wasn’t the only thing that went wrong on the trip. The airline also lost her bags.

Refaeli tweeted:

“2nd time in 2 weeks my bags don’t arrive at the airport. God better b planning something pretty major for me soon!!”

Refaeli isn’t the only celebrity who has publicly shouted down the TSA. Last year, Cheryl Burke from Dancing With The Stars tweeted: “I think I might have just gotten fingered by a tsa agent” shortly after walking through airport security.

Jersey Shore‘s  Jenni Farley said that she was “treated like a criminal” by the TSA. Wil Wheaton nearly gave up flying after his last encounter with the TSA. Wheaton tweeted: “I got groped so aggressively by TSA at LAX just now, I never want to fly again. Not even my doctor touches my junk that much. F**k you, TSA.”

Jennifer Hudson also experienced an undesirable TSA patdown recently. Hudson didn’t comment on the experience but pictures of the visibly disgusted singer have surfaced and been making the rounds…

Another unsettling sign post has cropped up in the wake of the Senate’s passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), as the Army has now reportedly designated a special prison guard unit for securing “civilian detainees”.

A similar job posting was advertised under the National Guard in 2009, which Infowars reported on at the time.

Only recently, leaked documents from inside KBR, a Halliburton subsidiary, announced the activation of FEMA camps, with calls to staff a wide array of services inside the temporary emergency facilities.
