The US Secret Service is once again disgraced

A new blow was struck on the reputation of the US Secret Service, which turned out to be at the center of a scandal this spring due to the inappropriate behavior of its employees during the visit of President Barack Obama to Colombia. At this time, one of her representatives from among those involved in ensuring the safety of Barack Obama during his election campaign trip to Miami (Florida) was arrested by local police in a drunken state.


According to police, in the early morning Eron Francis Engler was found lying on the ground near one of the nightclubs in the center of Miami, ITAR-TASS reports. In accordance with the compiled protocol, a strong smell of alcohol emanated from the US Secret Service officer, he barely twisted his tongue, and his eyes were bloodshot.

The man found by the policemen tried to prevent him from searching himself, and during the arrest he caused a scuffle by striking the patrol with a fist on the chin. The arrested brawler was handed over to the US Secret Service in Miami.

It was reported that the recent accident that had caused a lot of noise in the US Secret Service was caused by the behavior of eleven of its employees involved in ensuring the safety of Barack Obama during his visit to Colombia. The agents were convicted of bringing prostitutes to their Caribe hotel in the resort city of Cartagena, where the head of the American administration arrived at the sixth Summit of the Americas. The hotel staff said that representatives of the Service, which, in particular, provides protection for the top officials of the United States, drank heavily.

Eleven American servicemen from the White House advanced group suspected of similar behavior were implicated in that scandal. According to the results of the official investigation, a number of the staff members who were at fault were dismissed, however, Mark Sullivan, director of the United States Secret Service, managed to stay in his place. According to the American media, last week his department formalized the previous unwritten rules prohibiting staff, in particular, excessive drinking even in their free time. These innovations have been brought to the attention of all employees of the US Secret Service.

It is known that employees of the department repeatedly violated discipline. We are talking about prostitutes, and leaks of important information, sexual violence, unauthorized wiretapping, unreasonable use weapons. So, in August 2011, during a business trip, one of the agents tried to rape his colleague, and in 2005, according to information from the field office of the Federal Bureau of Investigations in Washington, one of the US Secret Service employees was arrested for harassment to a girl in the park. There is also a case when one of the officers, having a service weapon with him, threatened to close the strip club, since the prices for dancing on the table and on his knees, in his opinion, were contrary to federal law.

In 2008, another Service employee was seen with a girl of easy virtue, being on duty. According to the documents, after that he was sent to "administrative leave". At a hearing in the US Senate, the head of state, Mark Sullivan, confirmed that the man was fired.

          The answer is in the old phrase - "if tomorrow is a war, if tomorrow is a campaign ..". The employee, especially when visiting for cardon, should be like a pioneer "Always ready !!" What if ... (and then there are half-page scenarios), but the chief's human resources abroad are limited. And then who should be with the RPG to the north window?

        No, I don’t work in the special services, but I’m familiar with some employees, ordinary people, everything is strictly in the service, and after that it happens and they allow themselves too much, most importantly, that the authorities do not slip. And among the members of the forum, is there anyone without sin? I don’t know such men. And American employees once caught should be fired.

          Or maybe, along the way, Obama hired a secret service from our former "lads of the 90s"? Well, there, like "Sasha Bely"? Then everything is clear and forgivable, soon drunk bears with balalaikas will appear on the security staff ...

          The fact that the four murdered US presidents in one way or another tried to nationalize the "printing press" suggests that the Secret Service has always fought not against counterfeiting, but just the opposite))) (although, of course, it eliminated competitors)))). But under the Bush and etc. - the lease term for this very printing press has not yet come to an end, but now - the guards (or convoy)))) you can already relax, which the men are doing.))))

            And this did not change their essence at all, it was just that in 2003 they were endowed with additional functions (now they also monitor the Internet), although perhaps someone in the United States decided step by step to get rid of excessive guardianship - to reassign to their department, then replace the state ... The United States still has enough influence to hush up such a scandal, but here, on the contrary, every mistake of bodyguards is put on display. And it is possible that the presidential guard has become simply unnecessary for the real owners (now the "machine", in any case, will have to be returned to the state, time is over).

    I think that specialists from the Republican Party pumped up the guy and specially spotlighted this scandal, thereby indirectly indicating a confusion from the Obama policy. But for Russia's interests, Obama is the worst. He raised the authority of the United States to a high level, acting on the principle of soft power, quietly, half-heartedly and out of the fray, with the wrong hands. Bush ml. was more attractive to the interests of Russia. Under his rule, the United States hated the whole world and slipped shoes on it. I think that McCain would have brought his country to a bigger nightmare. That's why I am against the so-called US democrats, Republicans in this regard are better, tougher, dumber ........

      Two things are significant in this story:
      1) An employee of the Secret Service is taken away without talking by ordinary provincial cops, not paying any attention to the "tough crust". As the established practice shows, the employee will be fired and will experience many problems finding a normal job.
      2) They do not try to hide the incident with a drunken security guard from citizens who paid with their taxes, including this rowdy.
