APEC "security"

Security plans for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in Sydney in September include blocking access to some areas and encouraging people to stay out of the city by way of declaring a public holiday. Major, yet reasonable measures.

Another plan is to use helicopters with mobile phone jamming signals to counter the unlikely and impractical threat of bad guys using mobile phones to detonate bombs. Not a reasonable measure.
