Yes, this is shockingly out of character, but . . .

Good job. Ed Henry had more info on Twitter than Fox was reporting on air. They’ve now caught up with Henry’s live report from the briefing room.

Firecrackers?

Reuters reporter via Twitter at 6:44 p.m. EDT:

Ah - Secret Service says a dude threw firecrackers over the White House fence - it wasn't shots.

There was a security drill at the DC Navy yard earlier today, why not one at the White House as well?

Firecrackers.

That said, you are absolutely correct, Kristinn. When Foxnews showed the interview with the lady and the black gentleman that worked in the building, they left out that the black interviewee said it was a black man in the building doing the shooting. Foxnews cut that out!

Yes, but who could even imagine random murderous gunshots around the worst consistently dangerous ‘hood in the country? Nah, never could be Obama’s sons just shooting at each other.

the Police chief in his presser would identify what the “missing “ suspect is they are looking for..

this is getting ridiculous! How the H... are we supposed to call in tips?
How about...this hot tip call...
“ I saw a small white dog in the area running from the scene carrying a gun.”

In this situation the SS must assume that the firecrackers are a diversion and that something is afoot.

Normal procedure.

They should investigate the suspicious person INSIDE the WH.

I think the firecrackers and now the suspicious package are a ruse to keep the area clear so the party can go on tonight. The Obamas did this before. I think it was a Halloween party they supposedly cancelled but pics were later released that proved they entertained guests. Could have been Ft. Hood but I can’t recall now.

Three uniformed Secret Service officers arrested a middle-aged man. The man was WHITE, with dark hair, a blue shirt and white shorts. His white shoes lay on the ground near where the officer tackled him. Racism! Racist Reporter!/s

“a ruse to keep the area clear so the party can go on tonight”

The Obamas don’t want any Americans in the White Hut or even on the sidewalk in front of it? That’s OK. We understand.
