One night about five years ago, I was crossing a Washington, D.C. street legally and an SUV turning illegally hit me and shattered my knee. As the ambulance took me to the hospital, the paramedics said that they didn’t know who hit me, but it looked like a government vehicle. They speculated that it could’ve been the CIA or Secret Service.
As it turned out, the guy who hit me was a security agent for the State Department. There was no way for me to know that at the time because he didn’t identify himself to me, but that has never stopped leftist jackasses from lying about it. I never thought or said that the Secret Service targeted me, as these liars have claimed.
But it was ridiculous for me to even speculate that the Secret Service could’ve been responsible for such a thing, or so I’m told.
Yeah, about that… Carol D. Leonnig, WaPo:
The Obama administration is investigating allegations that two senior Secret Service agents, including a top member of the president’s protective detail, drove a government car into White House security barricades after drinking at a late-night party last week, an agency official said Wednesday.
Officers on duty who witnessed the March 4 incident wanted to arrest the agents and conduct sobriety tests, according to a current and a former government official familiar with the incident. But the officers were ordered by a supervisor on duty that night to let the agents go home, said these people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive internal matter.
Yep. That’s how it works. Five years ago, the DC Metro PD covered for the State Dept. by issuing me an utterly fraudulent jaywalking ticket. A week ago, they covered for these Secret Service guys by letting them go home and sober up. When federal employees run amok and break the law, they can always count on the DC cops to help them out.
Fortunately, nobody was hurt this time. What about next time?
And now, I invite our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left to laugh about how the barricade had it coming. You may begin.
