“Ill be interested to see if the Secret Service rolls into town with guns drawn on the citizenry like it did last week in Bristol, Virginia/Tennessee.”
Did you actually witness this? If true, that is way too scary.
I worked very near the Oklahoma City Memorial years back when President Clinton visited. I never witnessed them openly showing weapons at ground level. What I did see were sniper teams up on the roofs of all buildings in the area. I watched the spotters looking around, but never saw a weapon pointed towards any crowds. Seemed a little heavy handed, but not unreasonable.
