My logic to this question is where ever there is a bunch of people from different races, religions, backgrounds and culture all joining together for an event, there should be security. This world is getting worse as the days go by and you can never be sure who is just waiting to do something crazy, like killing a bunch of people or bombing a building.

Whereas at a sports game or a concert there is a greater possibility that a fight may break out because people are pushing against each other or someone prefers one team versus the other and because of a disagreement something could start. To avoid having the worst case scenarios like stabbing and shooting it is a good idea to have security check points...
