Positions are available for those who may be willing to be apart of the presidential entourage but you gotta be sure that everything you do is kept secret! In case you didn’t know at least 16 out our 45 presidents have had assassination plots or attempts on their lives or have actually succeeded. That’s over 33 percent . Putting yourself in the line of danger on a daily basis might be too much for some to handle.
But first we’d like to give a big shout out to goat white for leaving us this comment! We appreciate you apreciating us and we’re sure you’ll enjoy this video as well
15. Secret Personal Army
The presidents won’t often let you know too much about their own personal army or the secret service you can call them. They were established towards the end of the civil war in 1865 by Abraham Lincoln, in order to prevent the distribution of forged currency. In modern times, they are basically special agents who are deployed to protect the first family, former presidents and their families, guarding them like a hawk. Some rumors out there claim they use the most high tech advanced body armor on the market known as Dragon Skin, which isn’t available to the public or even the military. There are more of them than you’d think too.
14. Fire Power
As of right now the secret service deploys 3,200 special agents and an additional 1300 uniformed officers some which are uniformed. The president can decide exactly who he wants to deploy secret service protection too. They also get some high tech gear including the Heckler and Koch HK416, FN P90, and some 9mm Sig Pistols. Of course, that’s all the weapons we know about. The FN P90 can pack quite a bit of punch for it’s smaller and portable size and equipped with a stock, it’s much more accurate. It’s produced in belgiu and fires a new cartridge which is more shaped like a bullet fired from a rifle. Hollow Points are also used in order to reduce collateral damage.
13. Cartagena Scandals
In 2012 the secret service caught themselves in a little scandalous behavior in Cartagena, Colombia when some disputes took place on payment for intimate services” from the women of the town. This was during a presidential business trip and who knows what else might have happened in colombia if obama’s right hand men are involved. The working girl wasn’t afraid to come forward about the event and many people from the hotel that night remember some rowdy behavior at the hotel Caraibes where they were staying. According to Daria Suarez, the high class one of the secret service members refused to pay up the equivalent of 800 dollars. Mark Sullivan, the now retired, was put on trial before congress. The whole thing was basically swept under the rug.
12. Personal Reassignment
Knowing people who are secret service members would probably lead you to believe that you also have access to the kind of security that the president has but that’s not the case! Mark Sullivan, the guy we just mentioned from the caragena shenanigans, sent out secret service members for his female neighbors house after she believed that she was being harassed by someone. Since his neighbor isn’t the president, this makes it a crime to give her that level of personal protection but being the nice guy he is, he sent armed guards anyways. Let’s hope she wasn’t the one being surveilled instead!
11. No Sworn Oath
You would assume that the the secret service is sworn to protect the president no matter if his life is in danger. You’d think that he’d probably throw himself in front of the president and take a bullet for him but that’s not the case.It’s understandable that they might put themselves into dangerous situations in order. It’s sorta like the supposed oath the president has to protect the security of americans or for cops to save civilians from life threatening situations. They don’t really have to but they should!
10. Security Lapse
In 2014, an Iraqi War veteran, Omar J Gonzales, simply hopped the fence and entered the white house’s front door. He was carrying a small pocket blade and claimed he was just there to tell the president that, I quote,”the atmosphere was collapsing”. He claims that he never wanted to harm the president but trespassing is trespassing. He got 17 months in jail and was supervised for 3 years after his release. He won’t be allowed to possess firearms and was required to a complete psychological evaluation. We’re sure that didn’t involve any torture or anything. We’ll get into some more security lapses later on in the video.
