Is this really necessary?

The Transportation Security Administration is beefing up staffing at Indianapolis International Airport for Super Bowl weekend. The TSA is also sending its mobile VIPR teams into action around the city. And, Government Security News reports, that's not all:
Additionally, TSA said over 8,000 stadium vendors, parking lot attendants, shuttle bus drivers, and other transportation professionals received the agency’s First Observer training for detecting and assessing indicators and planning tactics of potential terrorist activities.
Keep in mind, the Department of Homeland Security has said it has "no specific or credible" security threats regarding the Super Bowl or its host city. Yet our government brags its rolling out unprecedented levels of security.

Are we really more secure by this display of a massive control and compliance apparatus?

Have we become blind to the idea that greater and greater levels of state policing and state spying may actually be a detriment to a free nation's well being and to the liberty of its people?
