A D.C. police officer who worked as a motorcycle escort for White House officials and other dignitaries was moved to administrative duty Wednesday after he allegedly was overheard making threatening comments toward Michelle Obama, according to several police officials.

The police department’s Internal Affairs Division is investigating the alleged comments and notified the U.S. Secret Service Wednesday, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to give details of the investigation.

The motorman allegedly made the comments Wednesday morning as several officers from the Special Operations Division discussed threats against the Obamas. It was not immediately clear where the alleged conversation took place or exactly how many officers took part in the conversation.

During that conversation, the officials said, the officer allegedly said he would shoot the First Lady and then used his phone to retrieve a picture of the firearm he said he would use. It was not immediately clear what type of firearm was allegedly shown.

This is not a smart man.

I read about this earlier. Apparently the Secret Service have vetted it and have said they're not worried about it. It was a 'joke' taken too far. Seems to me that most people should know that joking about killing anyone is a bad idea, but joking about killing the First Lady is a really bad idea.

From your average guy it is not a smart thing to say.


From a cop it is cause for discipline and removal from service.

What a rude fellow!   What we call a CLM (Career Limiting Move).

Bad cop.


No donut.

IIRC, it's considered a crime even if you're joking.

Well, the TSA doesn't really have a sense of humor when it comes to bombs, guns and knives. I would think the Secret Service would have the same attitude.

Ragging on political figures is fair game; threatining harm is just plain stupid.
