Secret Service agents protecting Biden’s granddaughter open fire when 3 people try to break into SUV | AP News
From the link:
" The agents, assigned to protect Naomi Biden, were out with her in the Georgetown neighborhood late Sunday night when they saw the three people breaking a window of the parked and unoccupied SUV,"
Sounds like “Stuff Protection” to me. Of course, I don’t know how much classified information was in the unoccupied SUV …
Glad to see our government officials aren’t immune to reaping what they have sowed.
Does sound like a risky maneuver though engaging with the car thieves. It could have drawn fire back in the direction of the person they were protecting. For us mere civilians it could result in charges of illegal firearm use and/or reckless endangerment.
Though the the prospect of being stuck on the streets in the DC area without a vehicle could have had the agents in fear for their lives. Plus as @Gary_H points out given the Biden’s involvement who knows how many boxes of classified documents were being stored in the back of the SUV.
Prolly had Hunters laptop on the seat!
(and a mysterious white baggie under it…sniff…Yep! Hunters… )
Unsurprisingly, few details in the article.
One or more of the criminals could have been armed. They could have presented or pointed a firearm, they maybe could have even fired one, the article doesn’t rule that out.
Could have been fairly serious weapons in the SUV, hell it could have been occupied but because reasons the Secret Service doesn’t want that known.
I think the only certainty we can take away is that crime happens in the area where it happened.
Washington has seen a significant rise in the number of carjackings and car thefts this year. Police have reported more than 750 carjackings this year and more than 6,000 reports of stolen vehicles in the district. U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas was carjacked near the Capitol last month by three armed assailants, who stole his car but didn’t physically harm him.
I didn’t realize we protected Presidential relatives with government assets. How far removed from the President do relatives have to be?
Pretty sure we have been doing that for a long time. The logic is, we don’t want a person with some power/influence and tasked with such decisions to have a family member hostage and bargained. It makes sense.
How far removed is a good question but parents/grandparents and children/grandchildren seems obvious enough. I do wonder how far though, just, idle curiosity
Jeffrey Epstein was in the backseat.
So the SS guard can’t hit at least one of three thuggies? Maybe this SS guard needs more range time!
The use of lethal force protecting property is good for everyone or just the SS watching over laptops, blow, hookers and diaries?
Just glad to know that they’ll be there for me when I need them…
Right, And how many fairies dance on the head of a pin for you Brother? My count is (422)…
My Question is where DID those rounds go?
WE are responsible for where they go, are they?
or is it just “I’M FROM THE SECRET SERVICE”, My WORD IS GOD! (echo, echo, echo!)
Sounds like a “CLUE” scenario to me Brother…
w/ the dreaded Laptop
and Grislda Maxhard
w/ the Cocaine (.gov approved)
and hunters revolver…
was the driver Professor Plumb?
