Sochi security is watching everything

From where I sit it looks like Sochi is keeping a close eye on everyone...


Maybe a bit too close. That's not just creepy, but scary. It's disgusting. It shouldn't be happening. Any where. All that being said, I can understand, at least partially, why they're doing it. Nobody wants a return to Munich. The terrorist threats are very real and Russia is doing everything it can to keep the world's athletes safe. And in that respect I'm fine with it. What would the outcry be like if there was an attack and it could have been prevented through tighter surveillance? At the same time, did we really hear the truth? Let's face it this isn't a transparent system. I wouldn't be at all surprised to find out there are cameras in literally every room. It also wouldn't come as a big shock to find out that the 'leak' was simply a ploy to have people think there are cameras everywhere. With a budget ballooning to over 50-billion dollars it's not hard to think there are cameras every couple feet. And with so many logistical problems, it's not hard to think even if they do have cameras everywhere they probably don't work.

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
