Shots Fired From Vehicle On Street Outside Joe Biden's House
Gun shots emanated from a vehicle driving down the street outside of Vice President Joe Biden's home in Delaware on Saturday night. Biden was not home at the time of the incident, and neither was his wife.
Biden's home is about 300 yards from the street, and investigators are unsure if any of the bullets hit the residence, or even if it was specifically targeted. The Secret Service and police tried to catch the vehicle, but it sped away and was able to elude them.
This marks another incident that doesn't exactly make me very confident in the security and protective services that our president and vice president enjoy. A few months back, we had the White House fence jumping incident, in which a man was able to breach security and actually get inside before being apprehended.
And then there was the revelation a short time later that in 2011, shots were actually fired at the White House, and it took the Secret Service 4 days to realize what had happened. Even though President Obama was not home at the time, one of his daughters was.
There was also the time late last year when President Obama was allowed to ride in an elevator with an armed sub-contractor, who had a criminal record.
These are all events which taint the image of the Secret Service as a top-notch security team. I certainly hope they get their act together.
