White House sidewalk to be closed to public permanently

Source: Bangor Daily News

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Secret Service said it would end public access to a sidewalk along the south fence of the White House beginning Wednesday night.

The sidewalk has been closed nightly from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. since 2015, and it will now be off-limits around the clock, the Secret Service said in a statement.

The closure will “lessen the possibility of individuals illegally accessing the White House grounds,” Secret Service Communications Director Cathy Milhoan said.

In March, a man scaled a fence east of the White House at night, and he was on the property’s grounds for 16 minutes before being detained. He never entered the White House, the Secret Service said.

2. How about razor wire and guard towers?

Let's face it, we're going to get there ultimately. Why fart around with halfway measures?

4. That would be "the Orange Anus Zone". Won't be long before they put a dome over the whole

stinking mess. With a non optional flush handle.
