Security Costs of Boston Marathon Quadruple since 2013

On Monday morning, former Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis committed a gaffe (i.e. the Kinsley definition meaning a politician telling the truth).

Asked by Maria Bartiromo about the Boston Marathon, Davis responded, “There’s been a significant increase in spending on security here; the costs have quadrupled over what it was in 2013.”

But he didn’t mention the dollar amount, and the host of the financial news show didn’t ask. So the remark was, strictly speaking, only a semi-gaffe.

The increased dollar cost of security-strangled sports is entirely due to unwise immigration policies which admit historic enemies like Islam into the country. Another example was February’s Super Bowl, which was expensively guarded by around 60 government agencies.

Clearly the cost is known for the marathon, as the commissioner let slip, but authorities don’t want the little citizens to know how steep the price tag really is for diverse immigration.
