Coming soon to a Mall and Hotel near you … over aggressive Obama state security pat down.
The Obama administration is going to step up security as so-called “oft targets” like hotels and malls. One has to wonder just how they are going to accomplish this. Will mall rent-a-cops be allowed to do pat downs and administer naked body scans? Mall security can bearly handle teens, now they are going to handle terrorism? Will there be a terror watch list for hotel check in? Maybe Obama will have Napolitano implement special surveillance cameras at the hotel continental breakfasts?
The United States is stepping up security at “soft targets” like hotels and shopping malls, as well as trains and ports, as it counters the evolving Al-Qaeda threat, a top official said Sunday.
A year after a foiled plot to bomb a US-bound passenger plane, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told CNN’s “State of the Union” program that other places and modes of transportation must now be scrutinized.
“We look at so-called soft targets — the hotels, shopping malls, for example — all of which we have reached out to in the past year and have done a fair amount of training for their own employees,” Napolitano said.
Since an attempted bombing on a packed Saturday night in Times Square in May, New York, for example, has installed hundreds of security cameras as part of a plan to triple the number of cameras to 3,000.
In September, the city activated some 500 new surveillance cameras at its three busiest subway stations — Times Square, Penn Station and Grand Central.
Coming soon, stepped up security at movies theatres, park play grounds and miniature golf.
Just curious, if the government has no issue in ignoring the fourth amendment in searching individuals who have done nothing wrong, why are child predators allowed to much leeway?
