Caught On Tape - Folks Jumped The White House Fence, Again

Just weeks after WhiteHouseFenceJumperGate saw the head of the Secret Service dispatched - having been disappointed not to be able to implement her reforms that would ensure the safety of the White House, the agency reports:

  • *MAN STOPPED AFTER JUMPING WHITE HOUSE FENCE: SECRET SERVICE

What is worse - much worse - is this african-american chap proceeds to kick and harass the guard dogs sent to dispatch him... an egregious act in anyone's book.

  • *AGENTS WITH DOGS STOPPED WHITE HOUSE JUMPER, AGENCY SAYS

Caught On Tape - the dreadful dog-kicking moment...

Video of the incident Wednesday night taken by TV news cameras shows a man in white shorts just inside the White House fence on Pennsylvania Avenue.

 

The video shows the man lifting his shirt as if to show agents that he has no weapons. The man is then seen kicking and punching two Secret Service dogs that were released on him.

As The Washington Post reports,

Secret Service officials apprehended a person who jumped the White House fence late Wednesday, news reports said.

Authorities shut down Lafayette Park after the incident, moving dozens of tourists to H Street. Reports said the White House was under lockdown.

Philippe Melaku-Bello, a peace protester who said he regularly spends time outside the White House, said he saw five to six officers with batons out standing over a man on the ground. He said the man was not moving. Officers immediately started moving bystanders farther from the White House. While he was moving away, he heard the barking of a Secret Service dog.
