UHaul with Secret Service gear stolen in Detroit

    Joe Biden was in Detroit yesterday for a Labor Day speech. Beforehand, some of his protectors rented a UHaul truck, put some equipment in it and parked it outside a downtown hotel.

    Well, it was stolen, and the Secret Service items dumped at a house in the city.

    Boy, that really makes me feel safe knowing that the Secret Service gets its own stuff swiped from under its nose... (and, no, this isn't a political thread)

    Or, as a friend of mine who now lives in Florida wrote on Facebook, "Detroit - where the weak are killed and eaten."

    And it's good to know the equipment they're using to protect the VP is so state-of-the-art that it isn't even worth the effort to sell on the street.

    Did they recover the condoms and tequila?

    Funny, but they didn't say what were in the big containers that were dumped in the neighborhood in the middle of the night. After all, it's a "secret."

    Ah, hell, it's just Biden.

    That was actually meant to be a non-partisan post.

    I'm just picturing the crack addicts who boosted the truck prying open the back and thinking, "Fuck this shit, let's just take the UHaul!"

    So if all hell breaks loose, our plan for guarding the key leaders of the Republic is to stuff them in Mom's Attic?
