World Series

Boston Counter- Terrorism

... In Your Face

10/21/2013 10:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details


The FBI, the Boston PD, the Dept. of Homeland Security ... just about every law enforcement group in the land will be patrolling the Boston area in force during the World Series in an effort to thwart a possible terrorist attack, TMZ has learned.

In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing back in April, the city is taking every possible measure to make sure people are safe when the Series comes to Beantown on Wednesday.

TMZ spoke with multiple law enforcement agencies ... who told us the Boston PD will be in charge of coordinating the plan to keep the area safe.

The police presence will be huge -- and in your face -- with uniformed and undercover officers, bomb-sniffing dogs, snipers and other counterterrorism measures in place.

Still, cops tell us ... as usual, they count on the people to provide tips if they see anything suspicious. See something, say something.

Gee...yet when Russia (We're talking RUSSIA for Christ's sake) called the CIA/FBI & Homeland Security and said "Hey, these two boys and their whole family are bad news and up to something"...well then we couldn't even bother investigating properly. Flippin' amazing!

This government no longer has any credibility. Creating fear to take away our rights, acclimating us to having federal agents touching us and making us feel as though we are only safe when they are around to scare us and save us.

We won't be safe until we boot all the Mooslims out of this country. Mooslims are a hate group.

Boston strong my A**. Head honchos need to be accounted for the stupidity of your so call security personnel. If you remember from the last fiasco that happened with your so call security, You will all notice by watching the video of the runners from the marathon jogging to the finish line, I counted 20 plus personnel watching the runners, instead of having their backs to them so they could and should have been watching the people from the streets and grandstands in case anything was happening. Well, they were not and got caught with their pants between their legs. It was really sad that this had to happen. Heads should roll, but I'm guessing they are getting a free pass on it. If you all are watching a football game, notice how security is facing the stands instead of watching the game itself. That my friends is how it should be done. Sorry, but that did not happen at the Marathon. Hope they all learned a lesson from that. That's all I have to say.

This iis the world we live in now days. Get used to it. And for those who are saying America is instilling fear into us with this kind of stuff are probably the same ones who when something horrible happens will say why didn't the government take precautions. I have no problem with too much security. If you don't like it, too bad. Go live somewhere else where there are nothing but rainbows and unicorns. This is where the world is today.

So the news story here is there will be multiple agencies trying to prevent a terrorist attack at the Series? I fully expect that TMZ will be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for this investigative gem.
