Police concerned about order to stop screening

By JACK DOUGLAS Jr.

DALLAS -- Security details at Barack Obama's rally Wednesday stopped screening people for weapons at the front gates more than an hour before the Democratic presidential candidate took the stage at Reunion Arena.

The order to put down the metal detectors and stop checking purses and laptop bags came as a surprise to several Dallas police officers who said they believed it was a lapse in security.

Dallas Deputy Police Chief T.W. Lawrence, head of the Police Department's homeland security and special operations divisions, said the order -- apparently made by the U.S. Secret Service -- was meant to speed up the long lines outside and fill the arena's vacant seats before Obama came on.

"Sure," said Lawrence, when asked if he was concerned by the great number of people who had gotten into the building without being checked. But, he added, the turnout of more than 17,000 people seemed to be a "friendly crowd."

The Secret Service did not return a call from the Star-Telegram seeking comment.

Doors opened to the public at 10 a.m., and for the first hour security officers scanned each person who came in and checked their belongings in a process that kept movement of the long lines at a crawl. Then, about 11 a.m., an order came down to allow the people in without being checked.

Several Dallas police officers said it worried them that the arena was packed with people who got in without even a cursory inspection.

They spoke on condition of anonymity because, they said, the order was made by federal officials who were in charge of security at the event.

"How can you not be concerned in this day and age," said one policeman.

I'll give you two guesses and the first doesnt count.

Now I wouldnt vote for the man but I wouldnt want him killed either.

The Secret Service better pick up the phone and start returning some of those calls today, because those federal officials should be fired for not doing their jobs!

Me neither.

If someone opposed his ideas killing him would be the worst thing they could do. He would be seen as a martyr and his ideas would become gospel.

so what did you think about the debate last night? esp the part where Obama dogged Clinton about her health care program being mandatory?

That xerox line cost her last night. She did gain a point back on her closing statements but I think that xerox line cost her Texas and sews up the nomination for Obama.

The difference is I have proof. You don't.

No you don't all you have is accusations, just like I did.

Read the links in my sig then.

I've read all the stuff you have posted, I wouldn't have voted for Obama if I had not studied up on him and the other candidates. As a matter of fact even though I'm a democrat I was leaning toward McCain until I started to study up on Obama.

Danger Will Robinson, DANGER!

Ya, sorry. Back to the topic at hand.

Again my stance is... Anybody who opposes Obama's views and shoots him is a ******. It just elevates Obama's message that much higher.

Kinda like Bush elevated all that hatred towards America. Good point.

For the millionth tim, the lnks prove that Obama has associated with socialists. Almost everyone on here has asked you to show that being associated with someone means that you share their beliefs. You have not done so, because you cannot...because there is no causal relationship there. Instead of either showing a causal relationship, or letting the issue lie, you continue to spam this board, railroad threads about other topics and generally push people's buttons, only to hide in a sensitivity corner and yell about personal attacks...all the while making more of them than anyone here.

The point you are trying to make is not only logically and factually incorrect, but irrelevant at best, and comically immature and ignorant at worst.

Your selectivity in your criticism belies your prejudice, and we all see it.

THAT is why you are being attacked.

I didn't watch the debate last night. Was spending time with the wife. I already know Obama and Clinton's policies. I got that in the first 200 debates that they had.

While Clinton's healthcare plan is "mandatory", Obama also promised "universal" healthcare by the end of his 1st term so it doesn't matter to me...

silly

Hey rob,

If there was a lapse in security at the debate last night couldn't Hillary also be a potential "target" ?

I believe this was at a rally, prior to the debate. Doesnt appear any of his supporters are concerned, so I guess I wont worry about his health.

PS: I would like to say hey to Banded, topic like this are killing him:D
