I have never been so disgusted with my nations security services as I am now. The simple fact of the matter is this:
If the state of our nations intelligence and domestic security establishment, is such that we require such drastic, draconian, and unsubtle tactics as
these to defend a sporting event, then truely there must be a serious issue with the quality of the people we are employing in those arenas, and the
expertise they are bringing to the table.
Time was that we had such good intelligence and security coverage, that incidents that might spawn such responses as a visible, quasi military
presence, would be dealt with so silently, so quickly and efficiently, that the man in the street would be unaware of the slightest state of tension.
What the hell has happened to us, that now we can even THINK of militarising residential areas? Where are the men and women who move like smoke, see
dangers even when they are under the heavy veil of secrecy? Where did they go?
We do not pay taxes for service this poor.
