Fans attending this year’s Super Bowl at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans will be “watched, sniffed and pawed,” as well as receiving mandatory TSA pat downs as they enter the stadium.
The Super Bowl’s designation as a level one National Special Security Event (NSSE) means that the spectacle is now an annual showcase for America’s post-9/11 descent into a security-obsessed police state, despite the fact that statistically, Americans are more likely to be killed by peanut allergies, bee stings and bath tubs than they are by terrorists.
“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,” said NFL Chief Security Officer Jeffrey Miller. Attendees will also be, “watched, sniffed and pawed as they enter the Superdome,” reports CBS Baltimore.
