Armed Intruder At The White House Got To East Room…And Lives.

 

From The New York Times:

WASHINGTON — An armed man who jumped the White House fence this month made it far deeper into the mansion than previously disclosed, overpowering a Secret Service agent inside the North Portico entrance and running through the ceremonial East Room before he was tackled, according to a member of Congress familiar with the details of the incident.

The man, Omar J. Gonzalez, who had a knife, was stopped as he tried to enter the Green Room, a parlor used for receptions and teas, said the congressman, Representative Jason Chaffetz of Utah, the Republican chairman of a subcommittee looking into the security breach. Earlier, Secret Service officials indicated that Mr. Gonzalez, 42, had only made it steps inside the North Portico after running through the door.

Route Taken by the White House Intruder

 

The intruder who jumped the fence this month made it to several rooms inside the White House.

 

The hearing is set to focus on a series of security embarrassments over the last several years, including a breach that occurred when a couple crashed a state dinner in 2009, a 2011 incident when bullets struck the White House, scandals involving drinking and prostitution on overseas trips in 2012 and 2013, and 16 separate cases of people scaling the White House fence in the last five years. Ms. Pierson became director in 2013.

According to a law enforcement official briefed on the current investigation, uniformed Secret Service officers at the White House failed to follow several of the agency’s protocols. Although the protocols call for an officer to be standing outside the North Portico door, there was no officer there as Mr. Gonzalez made his way up the steps. The officer who was stationed inside the door failed to lock it after an alarm was sounded that someone had jumped over the fence, the official said.

“At all times there is supposed to be someone at the outside and the inside of the door,” the official said. “The intruder was running so fast that he gets right past the woman who didn’t lock the door. She tries to catch him, and eventually she and another officer tackle the man to the ground, but by that time he was pretty far in.”

It has been unheard of in recent decades for an intruder to force his way into the White House, even if only a few steps inside what is supposed to be one of the most secure buildings in the world. Officials in Washington were stunned that Mr. Gonzalez was able to pass by the staircase that leads to the White House family quarters and get as far as the East Room, the ballroom where the cellist Pablo Casals played for President John F. Kennedy and where President Obama announced the death of Osama bin Laden.

Mr. Chaffetz said that Mr. Gonzalez ran from the north front of the White House into the Entrance Hall and then into the 80-foot-long East Room, where he was finally stopped by Secret Service officers at a Green Room entrance near the south side of the mansion. The Obama family was not home at the time.

In addition, Mr. Chaffetz said a system designed to alert agents that a breach of security was in progress apparently did not work as intended, allowing Mr. Gonzalez to surprise the officer at the door. Mr. Chaffetz said that he was told the “crash box” had been silenced or muted at the request of White House ushers, who had complained the boxes were too noisy.

“It’s an astounding set of facts,” said Representative Gerald E. Connolly of Virginia, a Democratic member of the committee. “It just boggles the imagination and is deeply destabilizing in terms of public confidence in the Secret Service and how it is carrying out its mission.”

The new details are strikingly different from what Secret Service officials first said happened on Sept. 19, the day Mr. Gonzalez breached the building. In a statement on Sept. 20, the agency said Mr. Gonzalez “was physically apprehended after entering the White House North Portico doors” — leaving the impression that Secret Service officers tackled Mr. Gonzalez just steps after he opened the door and walked through. Secret Service officials said nothing in their public comments to suggest otherwise.

In its initial briefings, the Secret Service did not inform the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the agency, that the intruder had made it so far inside the White House, according to an official familiar with the conversations. But the official said that until a final investigation was complete, the department could not confirm or deny the new account.

 

Asked about the new developments on Monday, Mr. Earnest said that the president retained “full confidence” in Ms. Pierson but that the incident was “an issue that the president is obviously concerned about.”

It is unclear when Mr. Obama learned of how far Mr. Gonzalez had penetrated the White House. West Wing officials previously said Ms. Pierson briefed Mr. Obama about the incident during an Oval Office meeting last week, but they would not say what details she disclosed at the time.

On Tuesday, Ms. Pierson will appear before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and will hear from lawmakers in both parties who said they would demand explanations for other breaches as well, including recent revelations about a slow and incomplete response by the Secret Service to the incident in 2011, when a man fired seven shots into the south side of the White House.

 

“Have there been some other serious breaches?” Mr. Chaffetz said. “Absolutely.” He said the 2011 incident was “about as bungled as could possibly be,” but he said lawmakers on the committee have received numerous reports about security breaches that have not yet been made public.

The Washington Post reported that Mr. Obama and Michelle Obama were furious that they had not been made aware of the 2011 incident until days after it happened.

Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland, the senior Democrat on the committee, said he would insist that Ms. Pierson explain why Secret Service officials in charge of protection around the grounds of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue appear not to have listened to agents on the ground that night in 2011 who believed shots had been fired at the White House. “I want to know what culture allows that to happen in an organization that is supposed to be the most elite protective agency in the world,” Mr. Cummings said.

 

Secret Service officers stopped Omar Jose Gonzalez last month as he carried a hatchet in front of the White House, but let him go even though he had been arrested this summer in Virginia with a mini-arsenal of semiautomatic weapons, a sniper rifle and a map clearly marking the White House’s location.

Prosecutors on Monday also said Mr. Gonzalez, 42, an Iraq war veteran who on Friday scaled an iron fence and made his way through the front door of the White House before he was apprehended, had 800 rounds of ammunition, two hatchets and a machete in his car when law enforcement officers searched it after Friday’s incident.

A judge on Monday agreed to a request by the prosecutors that Mr. Gonzalez, who is from Copperas Cove, Tex., and believed to have been living out of his car, remain in custody until a hearing next month because he posed a danger to President Obama.

The disclosures raised further questions about whether the Secret Service, which has the responsibility for protecting the president, could have prevented the breach into the White House.

Omar Gonzalez, an Army veteran from Texas, made it all the way through the unlocked White House front door with a three-inch knife last Friday before being stopped. The Secret Service immediately increased surveillance and foot patrols, but the incident renewed criticism for the president’s security team and a House hearing was scheduled for next week. Judy Woodruff reports.

 

 

 

White House Security Breach Worse Than Feared

 

Published on Sep 29, 2014

New details of the breach come as a House committee prepares to question the head of the Security Service about the incident.An armed intruder got further inside the White House than previously admitted by the Secret Service, it has been claimed.

 

Omar Gonzalez is said to have run past a female guard at the front door after climbing over a perimeter fence.

 

The 42-year-old then passed a staircase leading to the Obamas’ living quarters on his way to the East Room, where he was apprehended.

 

Republican congressman Jason Chaffetz says his committee was given the information by whistleblowers.

 

The account contrasts sharply with that of a Secret Service spokesman shortly after the incident on 19 September.

 

Spokesman Ed Donovan told The Associated Press that Gonzalez had been arrested just inside the North Portico doors of the White House.

The Secret Service also said that night the man was unarmed, although it emerged the following day he had a knife on him.

 

He also had hundreds of rounds of ammunition in his car.

 

“I’m worried that over the last several years, security has gotten worse – not better,” Mr Chaffetz said.

 

He said his committee’s request for a briefing on the incident from the Secret Service had been denied.

 

The latest details about the security breach are expected to dominate questioning when Secret Service Director Julia Pierson appears before a House committee today.

Gonzalez was arrested two months ago by state troopers
She has ordered an investigation into the incident and a review of security measures in and around the White House.

 

It has emerged Gonzalez was on the Secret Service radar as early as July when state troopers arrested him in Virginia.

 

They said he had an illegal sawn-off shotgun and a map of Washington tucked inside a Bible with a circle around the White House and other monuments.

 
The troopers also seized a stash of other weapons and ammunition found in his car.

 

Gonzalez was interviewed by the Secret Service but they were unable to hold him and he was released on bail.

 

He was stopped and questioned again on 25 August while walking along the south fence of the White House.

 

He had a hatchet but no firearms, and he was not arrested on that occasion.

Why did every security layer fail during White House breach?

How was Omar Gonzalez, the man who jumped the White House fence and ran into the mansion, able to breach every layer of security designed to keep intruders out?

Driver Miriam Carey killed in U.S. Capitol Shooting

 

Published on Oct 3, 2013

Miriam Carey, the woman identified in news reports as the suspect in a shooting incident that left Capitol Hill on lockdown for a brief period Thursday afternoon, and has now reportedly been shot dead by police. Carey, a 34-year-old dental hygienist.

 

Miriam Carey and her 1-year-old girl led Secret Service and police on a harrowing car chase from the White House past the Capitol Thursday, attempting to penetrate the security barriers at both national landmarks before she was shot to death, police said. The child survived.

 

“I’m pretty confident this was not an accident,” said Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy Lanier. Still, Capitol Police said there appeared to be no terrorist link. The woman apparently was unarmed. Tourists, congressional staff and even some senators watched as a caravan of law enforcement vehicles chase a black Infiniti with Connecticut license plates down Constitution Avenue outside the Capitol. House and Senate lawmakers, inside debating how to end a government shutdown, briefly shuttered their chambers as Capitol Police shut down the building.

 

 

 

Now Ms. Carey was gunned down miles from The White House, in her car, and she was UNARMED. YET, Omar Gonzalez is allowed to live after gaining access to THE INSIDE OF THE WHITE HOUSE, GETTING AS FAR AS THE EAST ROOM JUST OUTSIDE THE GREEN ROOM. Why is Miriam dead and Omar alive?

Oklahoma State Trooper Tells Local News: “Best Way Not To Get Raped By Cops Is To Follow The Law.”

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. George Brown (KJRH): “He says the best tip that he can give is to follow the law in the first place so you don’t get pulled over,”

 

From The RAW STORY:

 

OK trooper tells local news: Best way not to get raped by cops is to ‘follow the law’

 

By DAVID EDWARDS

 

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol official reportedly told women that the best way not to get raped by an officer was to “follow the law.”

 

In recent months, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol officer and an Oklahoma City Police officer have been accused of repeatedly raping women, often during traffic stops.

 

Oklahoma City Police Officer Arrested For Sexual Assault Of 7 Women While On Duty

 

 

 

Oklahoma City Cop charged with RAPE,Sexual assault against Black Women

 

Former star football player Daniel Ken Holtzclaw, 27, raped one woman and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, investigators said Friday. He made others perform sex acts on him. Three were assaulted in his car and one was taken to a school in the Spring Lake Division where he worked, according to the affidavit.
And police said there could be more victims than the seven already identified.

 

 

After a Tulsa County sheriff’s deputy was arrested last week for sexually assaulting a woman while responding to a 911 call, Tulsa NBC News affiliate KJRH decided to ask the Oklahoma Highway Patrol how to stay safe during a traffic stop.

 

The department noted that troopers should always be in uniform, and that women were allowed to keep their car door locked, and to speak with officers through a cracked window. A trooper should rarely ask a person to come back to the patrol car, OHP advised.

 

“There are certain situations where we do that,” Capt. George Brown told KJRH. “If someone doesn’t have a driver’s license on their person. We asked for an ID or driver’s licence, if they can’t provide it, rather than stand outside the car writing [a ticket], which puts us in a bad location, we may ask a female back to the car so we can get her information.”

 

The KJRH anchor said that Brown concluded with this advice: “The captain says anything that happens inside a troopers car is videotaped, and he says that supervisors do review those tapes.”

 

“He says the best tip that he can give is to follow the law in the first place so you don’t get pulled over,” the anchor added.

 

Brown told KWTV that OHP was working to regain the public’s trust.

 

“There are entirely more good officers than there are the few bad apples that exist out there, and we want people to know that,” he explained. “We have a lot of good troopers, a lot of good officers out there doing a lot of good things daily, and we want to continue that and have the public continue their trust in us.”

 

Thank you The RAW STORY & DAVID EDWARDS.

Can somebody explain to me where is the President of The National Organization For Women, Ms. Terry O’Neil? Why is N.O.W. NOT calling for the firing of this police officer accused of sexual assault and rape against 7 Black American women…and more importantly, why is Ms. Terry O’Neil, President of N.O.W., NOT flying streamers via aircraft over this Oklahoma Police Station asking for resignations?

 

Could it be that Roger Goodell’s name gets much more mention in the press than a law enforcement officer who sexually assaults and rapes Black women?

Charles Barkley on Peterson: ‘We all spanked our kids’…BUT we didn’t ALL break the skin Charles, or leave bruises. Remember your ad that you’re no role model? You are right, so shut the hell up.

Charles Barkley on NFL Today with Jim Rome | LIVE 9-14-14

Charles Barkley defended Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and shared sentiments on former Ravens running back Ray Rice’s case during an interview with Jim Rome onThe NFL Today Show Sunday.

Barkley expressed optimism on Rice’s case, hoping that his mistake would help raise awareness on domestic violence. Rome then asked the former NBA player for his thoughts on Peterson’s indictment for child abuse.

Barkley said that he understands the outrage towards the football player but added that if child abuse charges were formalized against Peterson, “every black parent in the South is going to be in jail.”

Rome vehemently disagreed with Barkley’s thoughts, saying, “It doesn’t matter where you’re from: Right is right and wrong is wrong.”

“I don’t believe that because, listen, we spank kids in the South,” Barkley replied. “I think the question about did Adrian Peterson go overboard…. Every black parent in my neighborhood in the South would be in trouble or in jail under those circumstances.”

Rome maintained that there is a big difference between child discipline and child abuse, to which Barkley said this was acceptable, saying that he went through pretty much the same thing when he was a child.

“I’ve had many welts on my legs. I’ve gotten beat with switches,” Barkley said. “But as far as being from the South, we all spanked our kids.”

He also added that he and his brothers were constantly spanked growing up.

He then ended the conversation by saying that people need to really be careful in teaching other parents how to discipline their children.

Peterson is alleged to have beat his son with a tree branch last May in Texas, after the boy pushed one of his children. He was recently indicted by a grand jury for reckless or negligent injury to a child, concluding that the use of a switch to repeatedly hit his son was a form of unreasonable discipline.

The incident left his four-year-old son with several bruises and open wounds, which were documented in photographs.

If found guilty, Peterson could face $10,000 in fines and two years in prison.

Asking this dumbass his opinion of most anything not related to eating or saying stupid shit, is like asking Ike Turner his thoughts on domestic abuse. EPIC Failure Jim Rome.

Friends –

Volunteers from Everytown and Moms Demand Action are getting ready to deliver petition signatures to Kroger-owned stores across the country.

The company’s execs hope we’ll just go away, but you and I know better. 

Together we’re going to raise the volume on this campaign and demand that Kroger change its dangerous policy that lets customers openly carry loaded guns in its stores. We’ve almost reached our first round goal of 250,000 signatures — and once we do, we’ll deliver the petitions to Kroger.

Can you help us reach our goal by adding your name to the Groceries, Not Guns petition today?

unnamed

More than 150,000 people have already signed the petition asking Kroger to stop allowing the open carry of guns in their stores. The message is simple: We deserve to feel safe where we shop and dine.

Sign the petition for safer stores — and we’ll deliver it once we reach our goal of 250,000 signatures.

We’re going to keep the pressure on Kroger until they join the list of major companies with Gun Sense, like Starbucks, Panera, Chipotle, Target and more who’ve stopped letting people openly carry guns in stores.

Thanks for adding your name,

Whites: Yes (62%)
Blacks: No (65%)

2. Who is most responsible for the violence in Ferguson after Michael Brown’s death?
46 percent of whites blame organized street gangs for the looting and chaos that gripped Ferguson for days after the shooting. Blacks blame law enforcement and community activists, both with 27 percent. Only 7 percent of whites said law enforcement was to blame.

3. Was Michael Brown targeted by Officer Darren Wilson because of his race?

From THINK PROGRESS:

Cop Allegedly Said ‘We Don’t Have Time For This’ Before Shooting Schizophrenic Teen To Death

POSTED ON JANUARY 7, 2014

Keith Vidal, 18-year-old Schizophrenic

Keith Vidal, 18-year-old Schizophrenic

Schizophrenic 18-year-old Keith Vidal was having an episode on Sunday when his parents called the police for assistance. Instead, an officer shot and killed their son right in front of them.

During Sunday’s incident, Vidal had apparently picked up a small screwdriver — small enough that it couldn’t have caused serious harm, his family says, but enough that they sought law enforcement assistance. Three different police departments’ officers arrived at the scene. The first two were able to restrain Vidal and calm him down, according to Vidal’s father. But then a third entered, and that’s when he says things went sour.

He says the third officer tased Vidal, knocking the 90-poundteenager to the ground. The officer then allegedly stepped forward with a firearm and said, “we don’t have time for this,” before shooting the teen dead.

Southport Police Department, one of the three North Carolina agencies that responded to the call, has put one of its detectives on administrative leave in relation to the case, reports WECT. The department did not say whether the officer was the one who had fired the weapon. The other departments, Boiling Spring Lakes PD and the Brunswick County Sheriff’s office, said that they have not put their responding officers on leave. The State Bureau of Investigation is looking into the incident.

Sadly, families often treat police officers as assistants in home disputes or conflicts. But law enforcement officials have a long history of turning heated situations deadly. Protocol for police who take out their guns is to aim for the head or chest, and that’s exactly what the officer did in this case.

Too often, the mentally ill are on the other end of the barrel. Just last month, police fired 15-20 rounds at a schizophrenic man who they mistook for drunk, killing him. The month before that, in a similar incident to Vidal’s, a mentally ill man carrying a shovel was gunned down by police after his mother called them for help calming him down.

“This is what’s wrong with our mental health system,” Vidal’s mother, who was reportedly treated at the scene for an emotional breakdown, told reporters.

UPDATE

Two of the cops involved in the shooting have been cleared by an internal investigation. One officer, Southport Officer Bryon Vassey, remains on paid administrative leave.

Thank you THINK PROGRESS.

From CNN:

Police group: Detective who fatally shot mentally ill teen acted justly.

By Greg Botelho and David Mattingly, CNN

Boiling Spring Lakes, North Carolina (CNN) — A North Carolina detective justifiably shot a schizophrenic 18-year-old because he believed another officer’s life was in danger, a group representing police officers said, offering an account vastly different from that of the late teen’s outraged family.

The North Carolina Police Benevolent Association laid out its version of what happened in Boiling Spring Lakes in a statement issued Wednesday, three days after Keith Vidal was killed.

The most salient part was its defense of a Southport police detective for shooting Vidal after, in its view, determining that the teenager posed a “deadly threat” to another officer. The professional organization represents both these officers but not a sheriff’s deputy also at the scene.

“(The) detective … employed authorized law enforcement action to stop the continuing threat of deadly harm to (the officer) and others,” the Police Benevolent Association concluded.

The Southport detective’s lawyer, W. James Payne, has told CNN affiliate WWAY that once investigations into the shooting are complete, “All folks — everybody — will conclude that the officers acted appropriately.”

Payne elaborated to CNN on Wednesday night, claiming that his client fired after Vidal made multiple attempts to stab the other officer with a screwdriver. The other officer was wearing a bulletproof vest and was not injured.

Wednesday’s statements are the most detailed public defense yet of the law enforcement officers involved in Sunday’s incident.

“We can say, based on our preliminary findings, that we are very confident that the officers did what they should have under state law,” the law enforcement trade association’s director, John Midgette, said Wednesday night. “It’s a very tragic situation, but we do believe the officers.”

Vidal’s family has offered a starkly disparate view in its pleas this week for justice, as they see it, by holding the Southport detective directly responsible.

“My brother just needed help, and now he is dead,” stepbrother Mark Ryan Wilsey said in an emotional video posted to CNN iReport.

Wilsey was not there when his stepbrother was shot but wanted to speak on behalf of his family, he said Wednesday.

“This officer who shot my son needs to be behind bars,” said Vidal’s mother, Mary Wilsey. “He needs to die the way my son died.”

CNN first learned of the shooting through an iReport sent by a family friend.

According to Mark Ryan Wilsey, Vidal had schizophrenia and “was having an episode” when his father contacted police to subdue him so he could get help.

“He’s not doing very good. You’ve got to get him someplace,” a man who identified himself as Vidal’s stepfather said on a 911 call, a copy of which was obtained by CNN affiliate WECT. “He wants to fight his mother. … She’s scared to death of him right now.”

The caller said that Vidal “won’t take his medication” and his family has had “to put him in before, (and) he’s getting real bad again.”

Mark Ryan Wilsey said Wednesday that Boiling Spring Lakes police were familiar with Vidal, having gone to the family’s house at least three times before.

And the family has no qualms with the first two law enforcement officers who responded — one from Boiling Spring Lakes police and the other a Brunswick County Sheriff’s deputy — with the stepbrother saying they “did nothing wrong.”

“All they did was taze my brother and try to get him into handcuffs so he couldn’t harm himself,” said Mark Ryan Wilsey, who wasn’t at the scene but relayed his family’s account. “They had the situation under control.”

But the family says the situation unnecessarily took a turn for the worse when the Southport detective arrived.

Stepfather Mark Wilsey told WECT that Vidal had been tased and was pinned when one of the officers said, “We don’t have time for this” and fired his gun.

Seventy seconds after the third officer arrived, WECT reported, citing police records, police radioed that the teenager had been shot in self-defense.

Boiling Spring Lakes police and the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office have both cleared their officers involved in the case after finding, in internal reviews, no evidence they’d violated policy or state law.

Southport police put its detective — the man the benevolent association says shot Vidal — on paid administrative leave, a step that Midgette said is standard for any officer involved in a fatal shooting. Police Chief Jerry Dove said Wednesday that the detective’s record is spotless, adding that his department hasn’t had an officer-involved shooting in about 20 years.

Asked about his detective’s judgment in shooting an 18-year-old who his family said weighed about 100 pounds, Dove said, “Well, that’s what I’m waiting for when I hear all the inquiries that are made.”

Specifically, the State Bureau of Investigation and the chief prosecutor for the state’s 13th Judicial District are both looking into the matter.

The North Carolina Police Benevolent Association said it “welcomes” these investigations, but at the same time that it “assigned local counsel” to look into the matter. Its director, Midgette, explained this investigation consisted of talking to two officers involved who are members of — and thus represented by — his association.

The group said that three officers from three agencies responded to Vidal’s house “due to the dangerous nature of the call.”

Vidal “failed to comply with repeated requests to surrender the deadly weapon,” which the 911 caller said was a screwdriver, the Police Benevolent Association reported.

What the officers did next — such as using a Taser — were “authorized and necessary law enforcement procedures … to promote safety for everyone involved, including Vidal,” the group added.

The detective fired after Vidal “made physical contact with the (Boiling Spring Lakes officer) using the hand holding the deadly weapon,” the police association said in its statement.

“The officers present realized the immediate and deadly threat to (the officer’s) life,” said the group.

The pain and perhaps anger felt by Vidal’s family is understandable. Yet Midgette said that it is important to understand too that the challenges faced by law enforcement, who sometimes have to decide, in a split second, whether they need to act to save their, one of their colleagues or someone else’s life.

“Officers struggle every time they are put in a situation like this, because they are human beings, too,” said the state benevolent association’s leader. “It is always a tragedy, no matter how justified (the use of force) might be.”

Man Who Made 911 Call That Led to John Crawford’s Death Admits He Lied.

Posted by

Walmart-shooting-John-Crawford-911-caller-665x385-300x173

John Crawford III was killed by Ohio police on Aug. 5 because they apparently thought the toy gun he had just purchased from the Wal-Mart in Beavercreek was real, but now the white man who called 911 to report Crawford has admitted he lied to police.

On the call, 24-year-old Ronald Ritchie, who was originally described as an “ex-Marine,” described a black man walking around the store with the weapon. “He’s, like, pointing it at people,” Ritchie told the 911 operator. He also said he saw Crawford loading bullets into the supposed weapon.

But in an interview with The Guardian, Ritchie is retracting his story, saying, “at no point did he shoulder the rifle and point it at somebody.” Though Ritchie stood by his statement that Crawford was “waving (the gun) around,” attorney Michael Wright says the Wal-Mart surveillance video of the incident refutes that claim.

Wright, who is representing Crawford’s family who was allowed to watch the surveillance video, said Crawford was facing away from the officers and probably didn’t hear them because he was talking on the phone with his girlfriend, who was with his parents at the time.

The attorney said as Crawford leaned on the pellet gun like a cane, he was “shot on sight” in a “militaristic” response by police.

In the Guardian interview, Ritchie defended his 911 call by saying, “Even still, it’s a gun in Wal-Mart, in a public place, inducing panic.” Ironically, Ohio has an “open carry” law allowing people to carry a rifle in public.

During the chaos created by the police shooting of Crawford, a 37-year-old woman also died from heart failure.
