They make since for the most part I believe. They definetly help deter those who are just wacked about something and are thinking to strike back on a whim. But from what I see in how they are conducted they don”t really look for the determined terroist or pycho with a plan.
I am no expert by any since of the word, but having the news cover check points and tell when they adisspating in areas seems kinda dumb. If anything they should know about the ones set up in areas that you would expect and that’s it. But the real check points should be looking at the Suv‘s, the Crosovers, and Passenger vans and minivans they can pack a lot in a little package these days. I think there should be a check randomly all the time of shuch vehicles going through our tunnels and over the bridges being parked in parking garages and so on. those are the types of vehicles I think would be more likely to house something thatn a delivery truck.
Two of those or three could easily be spread around a city than one lone truck that catches everyone’s attention. I mean think about it what was like last year or the year before when the guy almost got away with setting off a suv in times square.? It is sad we have to keep looking over our shoulders like this these days the times really have changed alot.
So much money that could be spent for other things is going to our protection. You wonder if it is being used right or not? The people trained are they taking this serious or are they just collecting the pay check and their waving people through because it is a family in the vehicle or buisness people types will to stop and willing to give th information. sometimes the guilty are not nervous they are to calm with all the right answers no? At least that is the picture you get from the tv shows sometimes.
I sell the minivans and the passenger vans and the suv’s and crossovers or wagons they seem to be perfect vessels to me. I hope I never find out I was right and someone or group does exactly what I am talking about it would be a very sad day.
