    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    Re: Police on bridges

    On bridges, it could be a speed trap. Were there also cops parked on nearby on ramps? I've seen them pull that trick between Ames and Des Moines before and been busted by one.

    Re: Police on bridges

    We met the president's buses and escorts going on I-35 near Ankeny before 7pm. There had to be nearly 100 vehicles between all the buses, state patrol, support vehicles, ambulances, etc. All politics aside, it is really amazing all of the support and security needed to move the president around.

    Re: Police on bridges

    I dont know if this is the case but sometimes when moving dignitaries, they watch bridges as possible ambush points.

    Re: Police on bridges

    keep in mind that is just the security that you can see. there is a no fly zone within 10 miles of him up to 17,999 feet and a restricted flight zone from 10-30 miles up to 17,999 feet.

    I would say it is warranted just think of all the groups that would claim it not to mention any war that could come from it.

    I would be interested on finding out how much is funded by tax payer dollars to campaign dollars.

    THe most important man in the world? Ya Id say its warranted. Its not necessarily the man, its what it stands for. They get him and that shows their power. I really had to not use certain words in that post in fear of them getting caught by some officials haha.
