(USA Today)   That person with a weapon shot by the Secret Service near the White House yesterday? "No firearm was found on the suspect, said a law enforcement official who is not authorized to comment publicly." So... phaser? Disruptor? Sonic screwdriver?   (usatoday.com) divider line

A Starfleet communicator can look like a phaser, so it's a justified shoot, especially if he is a known time traveler.

I couldn't quite catch what the Secret Service Agent said to him during the press conference... Maybe something like "We need you conduct another 'bunker inspection', Sir."

Shortly before 6 p.m., according to an agency statement, the man allegedly approached a Secret Service uniformed officer standing post about a block from the White House grounds, telling the officer that he had a weapon.
"The suspect then turned around, ran aggressively towards the officer, and in a drawing motion, withdrew an object from his clothing," the agency said. "He then crouched into a shooter's stance as if about to fire a weapon. The Secret Service officer discharged his weapon, striking the individual in the torso."

"the man allegedly approached a Secret Service uniformed officer standing post " - TFA

""The suspect then turned around, ran aggressively towards the officer..." " Also TFA

Wha?

Did he approach him walking backward?

I realize that he must have already turned around and have walked a few paces away from the officer before 'turning around' to run TOWARD him. But man, write that. It's extra words for your article even, jeez.

FTA: Both the suspect and the officer were transported to local hospitals. Their conditions were not immediately known Tuesday.

The officer was taken to a hospital?  Why? Because he was so mentally shattered?  Or did he shoot himself in the foot in confusion?

Yeah, failed attempt makes it even worse.

He should have just gone with the local law enforcement who would have fired several shots.

Sounds like the SS Agent is lying.

Yes, you can get shot by the Secret Service if you approach the White House aggressively and act like you have a gun.

Now put him in jail, too.

If it were a "normal" person and not a cop, probably for a piss test to make sure the officer wasn't cracked out of his gourd.  For the SS, who knows?

Dumb stunt, attempted suicide, who knows. But that is some idiotic behavior.

"Shortly before 6 p.m., according to an agency statement, the man allegedly approached a Secret Service uniformed officer standing post about a block from the White House grounds, telling the officer that he had a weapon.

"The suspect then turned around, ran aggressively towards the officer"


Wait, what? So was he approaching the officer by walking backwards?
