Secret Service Rental Stolen Ahead of Biden Visit to Detroit

Krissah Thompson, Washington Post, September 3, 2012

Vice President Joe Biden will take the stage at a big outdoor Labor Day rally here this afternoon. It is his third visit in the Motor City in recent weeks, but it has not gone off without a hitch.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan acknowledged that overnight Saturday a U-Haul the service rented to move equipment was stolen. “There was Secret Service property inside the vehicle at the time of the theft,” Donovan said in an e-mail. The Detroit Police Department is investigating, he said.


It is not the first time a high profile visitor has had a vehicle stolen in Detroit. The Rev. Jesse Jackson had his Cadillac Escalade stolen when he was in the city for a rally two years ago. Detroit Mayor Dave Bing also had his Yukon Denali stolen that year.

    No surprise to me. 

    A lot of young white hipsters are moving back into certain areas of Detroit.  However, a lot are moving right back out. 

    I was talking to a white guy just today who moved into a fairly upscale place called Harbor Town on the Detroit river.   It is a gated community which is 30-40% white I would imagine.

    He was moving out because he kept getting ripped off.  He said he had 6 bicycles stolen from outside his condo (gated community with security guards) or out of his storage unit in the basement.  He said the black security guards are sometimes the thives.  

    He claimed a black guard took a master key, went into his neighbors condo, took the extra key to her BMW, then waited for her to come home and took the BMW in the middle of the night.  The guard even brought a bag of broken car window glass and dumped it on the ground so no one would know it was stolen with a key.    The security guard was caught driving the car about 2 weeks later and confessed the whole thing for a plea deal

    He said he knew of five people who had been shot in the past few years.  he moved into Harbor Town in 2006.     These were not drug dealers that were shot, just folks going for a gallon of milk or getting gas when they were assaulted.

    THIS PROVES MY THEORY.  White hipsters who have drank the kool-aid venture into the hood, are being robbed, raped and killed by blacks, and the liberal media is culpable in this fantasy of “we are all equal” because they promote it.

    I wish the media was right and that we were all the same.  I wish blacks were like Asians but they aren’t.   Time for the media to stop the lies, stop the cover-up .

      The sad part is that these white hipsters who have their eyes opened then keep their mouths closed.

      They usually keep their bad experiences to themselves instead of warning other whites.

        It reminds me of the whites living in South Africa….All the security, fences, security cameras.   Then the domestic help, the ones you trusted, cut your throat and rape you daughter.

        • The Worlds Scapegoat

          Why do they hire help? Why can’t they do the work themselves? Lazy? Laziness kills.


        • Northernfront

          I’m sure there is a movie on that. It seems the White race has new saber-tooth tigers to deal with….

     How many guns did the secret service lose.

    • 1911ThePunisher45

      No telling, they use SUVs with General Electrict minguns(yea MINIGUNS) mounted on a raisably 360 degree swivle platform. I would assume they lost a least a couple full auto sub-machine guns, and a couple a full-auto M4s along with some hand guns. What I would really be concerned  about would be if there was a large amount of kevlar in the U-Haul.

      The conspiracy theory side of me says it was loaded down with weapons and munitions like hang grenades, and AP mines, along with advanced kevlar, and “stolen”  by the good old New Black Panther Party for use in the upcoming insurection.

        Did I say “insurection”? Oops I ment election…yeah election, thats what I ment.

    Chris Matthews would say this is racist reporting because it is just an effort to demean blacks through “otherization”.

    Meanwhile, rap music mogul keeps his “otherness” out front and calls it a gift.  We call it afrovoodoo hypersexuality.

    R. Kelly promises return to explicit music

    By NEKESA MUMBI MOODY                The Associated Press NEW YORK — 

    R. Kelly has been all about romance on his last two albums, but the self-proclaimed Pied Piper of R&B says he isn’t going to abandon the explicit music that helped make him famous.”Absolutely not, and I tell people all the time man,” Kelly said in a phone interview last week.

    “Make no mistake about it, R. Kelly is not going anywhere, it’s just that R. Kelly has such a unique talent, and I’ve been blessed to be able to do all type of genres of music … I’m exploring my gift right now.”

      Like urinating on a minor?

      • Church_of_Jed

        The piss ritual was authentic afrovoodoo. We shouldn’t worry about it or think about it. Let them be as Nature made them. It’s racist to interfere…

        Is this “talented” congoid still urinating on underaged girls?

    Well this is probably the easiest way to get your hands on a car in the Motor City, considering that “GM has increased its manufacturing capacity in China by 55 percent since
    emerging from bankruptcy thanks to a $50 billion bailout from
    taxpayers. An important piece of that increased capacity has taken place
    in Changchun, Jilin Province in China.” (source: Washington Free Beacon)

    Now in addition to making poisonous toothpaste and toxic dog food, the Chinese also make American cars.

    • IstvanIN

      The Buicks built in China are high end cars made for the Chinese market and are not exported to the US.

      • Hirschibold

         Even better. Don’t they make some of Government Motors’ “Volts” as well?

    QUOTE:  Fox-News station WJBK reports the U-Haul contained metal detectors and was
    recovered Sunday afternoon.

    Of course.  If you can’t eat it, smoke it, drive it, shoot it or f*** it . . . what good is it to a black?

  • Didn’t this happen last year?

    Ah, yes: 2011 West Indian Day Parade Marred By Violence (PHOTOS) 

  • Somebody probably just borrowed it to aid in moving. I am sure they will bring it back.

    Or abandon it in one on Detroit’s many fields of nothing.

    • The__Bobster

      Bingo! You nailed it. The police found mattresses inside the vehicle and the SS equipment inside the home of the Bantu who was moving.

  • ncpride

    It must have been the Romney people.

    I thought AmRen was just being funny, but reading a few of the comments on the orginal article, some actually believe that. Nutters.

    The profits aren’t repatriated. They’re kept overseas.
