Too bad Obama didn't know. I'm sure he would have assigned a Secret Service detail to get her across and into the hospital. Probably would have paused the motorcade for a photo-op with the dilated cervix.

If Obama's motorcade hadn't been passing, it only would have taken 45 minutes for her to get across the street to Cedars.

The LAPD is the motorcade? The less you know!

Also, 9 second video doesn't equal 30 minutes...

And finally.. I am assuming that the reporter had his instagram account deleted by now if he posted photos/video of the woman's vagina on it, "filmed the whole and posted it on his Instagram account.."

/spelled 'whole' wrong, too - idiots

Pretty sure EMS has procedures of dealing with shiat like this.  No way they'd just wait there for a half damn hour unless it was a complete non-emergency (and even then I'd have my doubts).

I'm no Obama fan by any means, but it used to piss me off royally back when I lived in Orlando and Bush made his multiple-times-per-year fundraising visits there.  Completely screwed up traffic on SR 528 and I-4 every damned time, and really made me wonder just who was paying for all of the FHP and Orange County LEOs to babysit that crap, not to mention Air Force One, a C-17 for the USSS gear, and all of the ground support needed for those little parties.

They're elected officials, not farking kings.

I posted this from it's source, news reporter Robert Kovacik of NBC LA who was on the scene. Of course, that headline (Obama, care?) didn't go green, but here's the link. http://instagram.com/p/q0Gz9ymQ2G/

He also had a follow-up video where he interviewed a police sergeant on the scene about the matter. http://instagram.com/p/q0R1QbmQ1Z/

This is true, but this woman was held up for a full 30 minutes. The USSS MO for a motorcade is a bit extreme in that they often shut the entire route down for the duration of the movement. Often times through major streets and freeways, bifurcating urban areas and snarling traffic something awful.

The USSS needs to start enacting some sort of protocol for EMS services to be able to access hospitals in a secured fashion. They have federal agents all along the route, they have local LE everywhere, they are deeply tied into local EMS/Fire for the duration of the trip. Would it really be so hard for all those idle resources to spend 60 seconds evaluating an EMS situation, dispatch a fed to the spot where the route needs to be crossed and get it done?

If we were talking a couple minutes of route shutdown, it wouldn't be a big deal, but with full travel-time shutdown of long stretches of roads, it's irresponsible for the USSS to not have effective protocols of this nature in place. *ESPECIALLY* given the massive number of basically idle federal/state/local LE resources these movements suck up at tremendous cost.

Frankly; the amount of security the USSS insists on is somewhat absurd. There seems to be little/no rational analysis behind what they do. Once you start on the security bandwagon, it is very easy to let thinking/tactics/resources get dominated by fanciful black swan scenarios with such excessively low statistical probabilities that it makes almost no sense to spend the vast amount of resources to counter them. This isn't to say POTUS should be issued a kevlar sandwich board and be done with it, but the amount of resources expended to protect the president easily crosses the line to the obscene.

Is he really THAT irreplaceable?  There's an entire structure in place to carry on if needed.  And, as Presidents are so fond of saying, they can't get anything done because of Congress or the Court, so really what difference does it make who runs the show, as opposed to which PARTY runs the show?

As a vagina-owning American who has been in labor and seen the 9-second video... She looks okay, best I can tell. It's not that big a deal to wait 30 minutes (under most circumstances) to get to the hospital, where you'll be waiting several hours before your cervix is even dilated enough for them to give you the farking epidural. Chances are, the hospital will even tell you to walk around a mall or something unless your water has broken. There are of course the rare situations where someone has already had 2-3 kids and waited too long to go to the hospital, but again... She seems okay.

That said, this is nothing President Obama would have been notified of, but whoever planned the motorcade's route to block off a hospital is a moron.

Tobin_Lam: The amount of resources expended to protect the leader of the most powerful nation on Earth is obscene? They've been doing this for a very long time. There's no need to change it due to an occasional exceptional circumstance.


Right now, POTUS protection costs taxpayers roughly $3 Billion a year between the portion of the USSS budget, payments to local agencies/facilities, the USMC for Marine One, the USAF for all the transport and the two EC-25s. We also have a new Marine One program with a price tag of $20 Billion and an upcoming EC-25 replacement where we will take 2, $150M civilian aircraft and spend a few billion on each of them to bring them up to Air Force One standards.

Do I think that's a bit obscene? It's hard to say honestly, but what I do know is this - really high quality security is not about simply throwing people and gear and protocols at the issue. Why? Because absolutely nothing is 100% secure, and it is absolutely possible to turn security into an endless black hole of resources as you keep asking "What If?" questions. Is it really worth doubling or tripling the POTUS security budget in an effort to achieve 0.1% more security?

I think the problem with current POTUS security is that the USSS essentially gets roughly a blank check, and they have absolutely zero problems expending massive resources for tiny gains in the President's overall security, and absolutely nobody questions this.

Security rhetoric is always a tricky thing because arguing against new security measures always sounds like weakness and it opens one up to being labeled as responsible if the 0.01% scenario actually happens. It's a one-way ratchet debate.
