On Monday night, I was fortunate enough to attend to Georgia versus Alabama national championship football game at Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz Stadium. Unfortunately, I was confronted with several problems along the way during my game day experience.

The first thing I noticed was that there seemed to be no communication between law enforcement and the public in regard to where we were to enter the stadium when the main gate was shut down awaiting the Trump presidential motorcade. Several people could be heard asking a security guard where to go when they were clearing the area. His response was, “I don’t know, but go that way”— and he was pointing to gates 2 and 4. This led to a long line around the building where we waited around 2 hours– from 5:30 to 7:30 pm in the cold and steady rain. We never made it anywhere near the gate, but then a staffer came to tell everybody that gate 1 where the president came in was open, and had a 10-minute wait.
