The Super Bowl’s annual role as a poster child for the police state will continue uninterrupted this year with low flying helicopters, airport-style security and checkpoints throughout New York and New Jersey.
“The U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration will use a twin-engine Bell 412 helicopter equipped with radiation sensing technology, flying in a grid covering about 10 square miles at altitudes of 150 feet or higher at about 80 miles per hour, according to the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management,” reports the Jersey Journal.
The low flying chopper will fly at an altitude of just 10 stories in order to measure background radiation as a “security measure” in preparation for a potential dirty bomb attack targeting the Super Bowl.
As we reported last week, the Department of Homeland Security announced that it would be flying a similar helicopter at low altitudes over Baltimore for years to come in order to prepare for a potential nuclear attack.
Other Super Bowl security measures include increased random bag searches and other checkpoints that will be commonplace throughout New York and New Jersey transit hubs.
“For those taking mass transit, police recommend traveling light because there will be numerous check points throughout the entire week,” reports NY1.com.
