amateur security just makes it worse (opinion)
Bruce Schneier just posted an article on his site which calls out many current counter-terrorist "strategies" as useless or downright harmful. It's worth a read, but it will make you angry at incompetence.
Even worse: after someone reports a "terrorist threat," the whole system is biased towards escalation and CYA instead of a more realistic threat assessment.Posted by yargevad at November 2, 2007 02:12 PM
If you ask amateurs to act as front-line security personnel, you shouldn't be surprised when you get amateur security.
