When public security is no security

The Virginia Tech massacre, the Oklahoma City bombing, the school shootings at Columbine, 9/11 — these and other violent events have forever informed the dialogue related to security and access control at places of public assembly. But for the many operators of sports and recreation facilities who have seen their security budgets shrink in recent months, the conversation now also turns to money.

...and The Big Quote
"It really amazes me sometimes to see the lack of technology," Widgerson says. "Some people build these $25 million facilities and have no systems in place because they either didn't think of it or they didn't think it was important. I think you'd be out of your mind to not have some kind of technology to validate entry into your facilities." (the entire article here)

We say: Security is always important after something bad happens. It should be more important to deter anything bad happening.
