Snipers Watch Over Super Bowl Crowd

They can tap a keg at 500 yards


Law enforcement officials in New York and New Jersey have ramped up security in anticipation of Super Bowl XLVIII in East Rutherford on Sunday, utilizing just about everything in their arsenals—including sharp-shooting snipers—to protect those in attendance from any possible terrorist attack.

The Super Bowl is what national security officials consider a 'level one national security event' and may be a target for terrorists because of the level of attention paid to the game.

But high-altitude snipers will be working with security agents on the ground to make sure everyone is safe.
