Police motorcycle escort for WH allegedly threatened the Obamas
He made threatening comments about them, not to them. The police department and the Secret Service are investigating.

1. it cannot be stated enough - a friggin' motorcycle cop in D.C. did this! talk about slipping
through the cracks! What is his problem? Angry she wouldn't talk to him in the past, or some perceived slight?

How the hell do these guys get these jobs? I'm amazed at the level of idiocy I see in people who had to beat out a bunch of other people for decent paying jobs. Did they go cuckoo after they got the job, or did they hide their warped minds during test questions/interviews/training?

2. Update; The Secret Service says it was only a bad joke.
Edited on Fri Jul-13-12 04:11 AM by No Elephants
I knew no one was going to treat it as a threat against the President or the First Lady, even though he showed a photo of the gun he would use to shoot Ms. Obama.


For one thing, he is a cop. For another thing, his union is defending him. And it is an election year.

So, it's only a bad joke, for which he has been reprimanded. Case closed.



Threatening to shoot the obamas is a crime, whether you follow up on it or not, just like falsely yelling "fire' in a crowded theater or making a terrorist threat.

Question: Since when does a cop who makes a bad joke that is truly nothing more than a bad joke receive an official reprimand?

What happens to people who make a bad joke about bombs or terrorists being present while on airplanes or in airports?


BAH!

5. Secret Service should do all the security for the White House AND
its motorcades. No reason why Secret Service personnel cannot do the motorcycle thing.
