The Sniper’s Nest At Super Bowl XLVI

I suppose this makes sense, so why is it so morbid and shocking? Perhaps because every aspect of the Super Bowl is supposed to symbolize some element of the broader culture? Deadspin stumbled upon some photos of the armed-and-ready-to-shoot man who watches while you watch the big game:

According to Business Insider, the photos were taken by a ranking member of the Indianpolis SWAT team, and obtained by Alamo Four Star, maker of the tripod.

      Seriously, WHY even have a sniper up there if we’re not even going to shoot people fingers off?

    There’s no way this could go wrong or be misused in any way whatsoever.

    • Tuna Ghost

      No kidding, I hear there are as many as 11,000 snipers in one tower alone on any given race day

    Remember years ago when the people went out of their way to show their “John 3:16” signs?? Before, they were “allowed” to sneak in at most every sporting event, but now they are “sophisticated enough” to make sure they didn’t/don’t! That being said, can you imagine if some truther came up to try and get a sign on at the ‘Bowl?!?  Pewwwwting! Truth denied by DHS enacting the PATRIOT ACT at SB 46 the lead story might be! Scary!

    People shouldn’t complain about this hero doing his nation a great justice, all he’s trying to do is protect you from communists and terrorists in the crowd by pointing his gun at your head. Feel safer America? You should do, your government cares about you.

    I’m so jealous of your freedoms… lol

      I was so ready to come in here and make that same comment, but you beat me to it. 
      You dirty liberal scum should be glad that this hero is protecting you from the jihadis  and crazy occupier anarchists! U! S! A! U! S! A!
