“Alright Let’s Do This! “- Man Draped In Americian Flag Said Before Jumping White House Fence


“Alright Let’s Do This! “- Man Draped In Americian Flag Said Before Jumping White House Fence

A man is in custody after jumping over a White House fence while the first family was inside celebrating Thanksgiving, officials said.

Joseph Caputo scaled a fence on the North Lawn at 2:45 p.m., according to Secret Service spokesperson Robert Hogback. He was immediately apprehended and taken into custody.

According to two CNN photojournalists who witnessed the incident, the men was carrying an envelope, had on a blue shirt and white pants and was cloaked in an American flag. They said the officers who detained him had their guns drawn and were accompanied by K-9 units.

Vanessa Pena, an intern on Capitol Hill, was playing tourist with her twin sister who was in town for Thanksgiving. “We were just standing there and the man came up behind us,” she told CNN. “I heard him take a deep breath and say, ‘All right, let’s do this.'”

Pena said the man “ran through” she and her sister before he jumped over a barricade, and then the fence.

Though the White House issued an official “all clear” about two hours after the episode began, the north and south fence lines remained temporarily closed Thursday evening.

If someone managed to jump Aso Rock fence or breach security, will the SSS be this lenient to him? I doubt.

    God bless America…

    Americans gives intruders ideas on how to break through their defences, with all these lackadaisical move. I don’t think they know the kind of crazy people watching this kinda move, some of their movies were based on terrorist attacks on U.S and even world trade centre before 9/11.
    I think the Government needs to start going hard on people that misuse the freedom of expression like this man, cos I’m sure he’s aware they’re just gonna give him probation and if he has a good lawyer he can get away with it. Guys like these needs to be severely dealt with, this kinda attitude can’t happen in Russia, they never expose themselves to attack like this, that’s why little by little they’re taking over the number one spot from U.S, Putin is the most powerful man in the world right now, even the U.S can’t go against his plans on Syria, and while other countries like U.S, France get attacked and filled with mayhem here and there, Russia looks untouchable.
    Americans needs to sit tight and stop behaving like a spoilt brat with the way they misuse the freedom of expression, and allow the government deal with matters of National security without dealing being distracted by this kinda craps.
