D.C. Criminals Tried To Carjack Unmarked Secret Service Vehicle

Evidently criminals in Washington D.C. don’t care who gets in their way. Last night Secret Service agents foiled a carjacking of an unmarked Secret Service vehicle.

A U.S. Secret Service agent assigned to protect President Biden’s granddaughter, Naomi, opened fire overnight at attempted car break-in suspects in Washington, D.C., Fox News confirmed.

At around 11:58 p.m. on Sunday in the Georgetown neighborhood of D.C., Secret Service agents encountered possibly three individuals breaking a window on a parked and unoccupied government vehicle, the agency confirmed in a statement obtained by Fox News.

There’s more than a few things about this incident that caught my attention. First, this involves Naomi Biden who, while working as a Senate page defaced the Capital Dome. This is also the same young lady who was given a huge glowing spread in Vogue for her White House wedding last year. 

That said, I’m sure the would be carjackers didn’t have a clue whose vehicle they were trying to hoist. Or if they did, they didn’t care. The criminals in D.C. have been emboldened due to the failure of prosecutors to enact consequences for their actions. 

Vehicle theft and carjackings are rampant across the D.C. area. 

The nation’s capital has seen a drastic rise in carjackings and car thefts this year. In the past year, police have received reports of more than 750 carjackings and over 6,000 stolen vehicles.

One of those statistics involves Congressman Henry Cueller. He was carjacked by three armed men just last month. Wait, three armed men? There were potentially three involved in the attempted theft of the Secret Service vehicle. Wouldn’t it be VERY interesting if there was a connection between those criminals?

That said, it also must be noted that the Mayor of Washington D.C.’s response to the exponential rise in crime is to provide tracking tags to vehicle owners who want one. Yes, really. 

Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser and the Metropolitan Police Department announced a pilot program to provide District drivers in selected police service areas (PSAs) with free digital tracking tags for their vehicles. Installing tracking tags in vehicles will assist MPD in combatting crime by assisting in locating and recovering stolen vehicles and holding those responsible accountable.

Hold the criminals accountable? Now there’s a new concept! Except currently, far too many criminals skate because of the policies that hold no one accountable no matter the crime.  

Here’s another issue with the increase in carjackings across the D.C. area. Many of the carjackers are teenagers and middle schoolers. 

Washington D.C. has a crime problem. This has been glaringly evident for years. However, the crime problem has gotten exponentially worse in the last few years. 

I’ll admit, I laughed at that one! 

That said, here’s another issue. The role of the Secret Service is PROTECTION. Wouldn’t that protection ALSO involve being able to hit the target if called upon to fire one’s weapon?? One would think so! Also, why didn’t they fire at the vehicle and try to disable it? It seems to me that the Secret Service needs some more range time. A lot of it. 

The Georgetown area of D.C. is a high profile neighborhood. So, for crime (which is up nearly 50% compared to previous years) to make its way there, the Mayor and police have a big problem on their hands. 

A very good question.

    Secret Service agents who are supposed to protect high profile persons can’t hit any one of three perps? Suppose the perps had been armed and were able to shoot back?

    foiled a carjacking
    Nope. Read the description:
    a parked and unoccupied government vehicle
    This was nothing more than a burglary of a car. No threat to humans at all. Nothing but property involved.

    Why this is important:
    Dedaly force in defense of personal (or gov’t) property is NOT authorized in almost any jurisdiction in America (with the exception of Texas, and possibly one other), not even for police, unless there is a violent felony in progress. That means there has to be a person in danger, or potentially in danger in the near future. (And, the person robbing your car of a firearm does not generally qualify for a civilian.)

    IOW, these SS agents just popped off at someone robbing a car, with deadly force. With what appears to be no violence directed at anyone. So much for that “only cops should have guns”, huh?

  • GWB says:

    Installing tracking tags in vehicles will assist MPD in … holding those responsible accountable.
    Ummmmm, no. Actually prosecuting them to the fullest extent of the law, then imprisoning them for the full duration of their sentence would assist in holding those responsible accountable.

    Also, why didn’t they fire at the vehicle and try to disable it?
    Because that’s only a dream from the movies. Unless you’re carrying something a whole lot bigger than a 9mm, or with a lot more kinetic energy than a .45. It’s kinda like “shoot the gun out of his hand.”
    Also, it’s considered dangerous to bystanders, since you can’t know what will happen to the car once it’s “disabled”. Even though you can make arguments for it, I think most PDs consider it not a proper tactic.

    (Their bad shooting is merely indicative of standard police abilities across America. Concealed carry citizens are often much better shots under pressure than police.)

    Where is the video footage of this so-called incident?
    BWAHAHAHA! I’m guessing they have it, but they won’t show it for the usual reasons: it might inflame certain groups’ racism.
