Do u people have any idea how much it costs to secure a race this size ? To many terrorists sleeper cells in the northeast to take a chance on people getting hurt. They will cancell it and you will get a full refund.
Considering Nick labella is called "the head of security" no amount of money would be enough. With most LB accouts about 15% of the costs actually hits the street. Id be afraid if these people were managing a hot dog stand security in my town.

They're more terrorists out there under the radar waiting to terrorize more sporting events. I believe the race will be cancelled this year.

I don't see how they are going to make that race course safe. To many possibilities of things that can go wrong really fast.

Are the cops going to be carrying assault weapons in plain view @ the finish line ?

As an added precaution and due to his vast experience & expertise as an ex-cop Tubby Labella will be in charge of total security. And he will only charge the city a one-time flat fee of $250K.

Who knows, there might be a sleeper cell in this area. There is a Muslim community in Utica, mostly law abiding citizens that are nice people. It only takes one bad apple to put this region into a living hell.I'm NOT running this year,could be a copycat out there !

The boilermaker isn't any national event it's a boutique thing. Terrorists want real well known targets, otherwise they would have forgone the Boston Marathon and bombed the kenyanmaker NFP project and tax shelter for mediocre beer brewers.

Bunch of babies. Sack up already and get over the thought of anything significant happening in Utica because we are to small and unimportant. What a joke this area is.

My aunts and cousins always ran the boilermaker right up until 2002 even after they moved to Walpole. The ran both moronthons boston and boilergasm but Aunt Mary found out a labella she had problems with years ago so now they do not travel there. I know the labellas are trouble but she actually resents that family and anything they are involved in at all.

Race officials should sit back ,take a deep breath and cancel the race until next year. Come up with a good security plan for next year's race.
