The Post says the officer was overheard making the comments Wednesday as several officers from the Special Operations Division discussed threats against the Obamas. The officer allegedly said he would shoot the first lady and then used his phone to retrieve a picture of the firearm he said he would use.
Asked about the report, D.C. police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump said the department received an allegation "inappropriate comments" were made" and police are investigating.
Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan says the agency is aware of the report and will follow up.
We all know politics can be a nasty, no holds-barred event. Politicians often go for the kill , ensuring that they destroy the credibility of their opponents. This presidential continues to take turns for the worst day by day in that area.
It is no longer politics, but personal when you involve the families of those running for public offices. The growing hatred from the Obamas are becoming increasingly obvious. When you have an officer, who is sworn to protect lives; now threats to take a life. Not only does he make a threat, but allegedly shows off his weapon of choice. While we have freedom of speech; this would appear to have gone from idle thoughts to perhaps serious contemplation of this sinister act.
I believe it is time for Mitt Romney and President Obama to take the lead and publicly come together in the same place at the same time...to say to America; we may not agree on how to run this country; but we do agree that hatred, violence and racism is will not be tolerated by either party!
There are times when you have to put politics aside for the great good of this country. This could turn out to be the most divisive presidential race in the history of America, if both candidates and their camps don't come together to calm the storms, before someone gets hurt.
That is my take, what's your?
