Man infatuated with U.S. VP breaches 2010 security
CTV News ^ | February 17, 2010 | Rob Brown

A mentally ill man with a homemade security pass was able to get within metres of U.S. Vice President during a security breach at the Opening Ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, CTV News has learned.

As dozens of police held back thousands of protestors outside of BC Place in Vancouver, a 48-year-old British Columbia man slipped past several layers of security inside the venue, said RCMP Assistant Commissioner Bud Mercer, the head of the 2010 Integrated Security Unit (ISU).

Mercer said the man's target was clear.

"He had an infatuation with the US Vice President."

Biden was seated in a section reserved for dignitaries. Twelve steps away from the VP and out of view of the cameras, the man started making his way down the stairs after the national anthem ended.

“Police say the man will not face charges. He has been committed to a psychiatric facility for treatment.”

I guess someone *would* have to be mentally ill to be infatuated with Biden.

You don't see that sentence very often.

But, gee, who wouldn't?

Anyone with an infatuation of Biden has to have serious mental problems.

That’s nothing, subversives in the Democrat and Republican parties ROUTINELY slipped access passes to radicals in Code Pink (including near front row seats at the the GOP 2008 convention where one participant heckled John McCain’s acceptance speech and another time where a kook tried to handcuff herself to Condi Rice).

My first thought was if the mentally ill guy was threatened by the VP. After all, Joe could have gaffed the guy to death.

“That’s when two female plainclothes Mounties charged with protecting Biden acted, Mercer said.”

Did Joe request a female detail?

LOL.

Nah, if he was infatuated with Biden, he IS suffering from mental illness.

Thanks for the ping, Springman.

BTW, when does plugs go home? It's bad enough that Hillary is planing to spend more time here when Palin wins.

And I do not want to be anywhere near Toronto when Hillary and Belinda get into a cat fight.

Joe wasn’t upset at all. He is glad to finally have someone like the Obama Girl all for himself.

A person has to suffer from mental illness or some type of brain damage to be infatuated with Joe Blowhard Biden. He's a comedian who thinks he's a brilliant and serious thinker.
