Secret Service Searched Occupy D.C. Camp For Person Who Shot At White House
Talking Points Memo ^ | NOVEMBER 16, 2011 | RYAN J. REILLY

Posted on 11/16/2011 8:25:30 AM PST by Qbert

The Secret Service searched Occupy D.C. on Monday for a man suspected of firing bullets at the White House on Friday, one of which was stopped by the building’s ballistic glass.

Protestor Ralph Wittenberg told TPM on Tuesday evening that authorities came through “searching for a so-called terrorist who shot at the White House, with no warrant, they went into everybody’s tents.”

A person handling media requests for Occupy DC confirmed the searches and said they were led by the Secret Service. The agency did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Police have been trying to locate 21-year-old Oscar Ortega Hernandez, a mentally ill man from Idaho who authorities say is connected to the incident, which apparently took place on Friday.

Agents began investigating after gunshots were heard on Friday night, but NBC Washington reports that agents didn’t discover the bullets until Tuesday morning.

One bullet hit an exterior window of the White House but was stopped by the bulletproof glass behind the historic glass. An additional round was found on the exterior of the building, the Secret Service told the news channel. Authorities recovered an AK-47 rifle near the scene.

Strangely, the Secret Service says the agency isn’t yet positive that the Friday incident is linked to the bullets found on the grounds of the White House.

As for Barry, he’s a playah, but he should let this slide. If he didn’t roll around in armor plated limo and live in a mansion guarded 24/7 by sharpshooters on top of the roof, I’d feel more sorry for him. If he lived a three miles SE of 1600 Penn Ave, he’d be hiring glaziers at least two times a week.

Islamic dictators have these problems all the time.

Maybe Hussein needs to keep moving from palace to palace?

But they certainly told everyone right off the bat that he was “mentally ill.” ANd yet, they’re still keeping that little minor “mentally ill” factoid about Jared Loughner out of the media while they insist on calling him a Tea Party conservative, which is a flat out LIE.

1st generation hippies from the 1970’s have apparently bred 2nd generation hippies.

NOW I understand why Occupy was shut down everywhere. Obama is now in danger from his own constituency and they cannot allow this to continue.

“NOW I understand why Occupy was shut down everywhere. Obama is now in danger from his own constituency and they cannot allow this to continue.”

At least the “media” have given up on the facade that OWS holds Obama in high regard; when these protests started the news openly showed anti-Obama signs and aired anti-Obama interviews with the protesters. As they dragged on, those items disappeared, and the “media” even tried to give the impression that the Dem politicians were at the forefront of the movement...

??? I heard last night on a radio show the Secret Service or police had caught him as he was in the Occupy and he ran away. Police caught him and let him go. And there were two cars involved. Might be mentally ill but someone must have helped him plan this. I mean drive from Idaho and figure the layout of the WH, then ping the living room windows.

All he needed was a schedule and umm maybe a ticket to Hawaii. I might hate Obama's policies to the core but don't want to see the guy dead.I still say he would have been better off as Bill Maher's side kick or Arsenio Hall's replacement.

I'll try to find a link to the first reports. It seems even the radio announcer was getting caught up in the differing stories and how the media were trying to keep this story out of the "Occupadoelbano" people they so dearly love.

Thanks for the new report/link. Was looking for that article. I think the "newer" reports are going to "cleanse' this guy of "Occupy the storm drain " crowds of Che and patchouli oil lovers( took all the 60's and half the 70's to learn to spell,"patchouli" phewww).

You can always tell if the perp is a left wing, libtard lunatic.

The media quickly reports that he had no affilliations with any extremist political groups.
