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.

LOL....But no body messes with Joe!!
“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?
“A mentally ill man” Biden——
Birds of a feather flock together!
Infatuated with Car Crash Joe? That’s criminally insane.
Why would ANYBODY be infatuated with Plugs Biden?
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).
>”He had an infatuation with the US Vice President.”
Crazy people attract other crazy people, I guess.
would've been something to see the nutcase plant an Algore on the Vice Idiot
My first thought was if the mentally ill guy was threatened by the VP. After all, Joe could have gaffed the guy to death.
Was Joe Biden receptive to this homosexual male?
If Biden is unavailable there is always Barney Frank!
Ping. Maybe he just wanted to hear him say something stupid in person.
“That’s when two female plainclothes Mounties charged with protecting Biden acted, Mercer said.”
Did Joe request a female detail?
Well, I’m glad Biden is safe! Tighten security around the VP.
Nah, if he was infatuated with Biden, he IS suffering from mental illness.
Thanks for the ping, Springman.
