1. stay sober or drive while under the influence.
2. keep their pants on while on assignment.
3. keep trespassers from jumping the fence and entering the #WhiteHouse.
4. keep a secret.
I don't understand how these people can be trusted to protect the President. I believe he would be better protected by an outside contractor such as the #SwissGuard who protect the #Pope. I have posted earlier that the Secret Service needs to require vows as a condition of employment. Here is what I wrote on March 23:
The Secret Service is in the news once again. This time two senior-level Secret Service agents were "inebriated" and crashed into the White House grounds. This, of course, is not the first time agents have had problems holding their liquor. You may recall the incident in the #Amsterdam one year ago when three agents were sent back for an alleged night of drinking. One of the agents was found passed out in a hotel hallway. It's no secret that agents also have a problem keeping it in their pants. Remember back in April of 2012 when a Secret Service agents brought strippers to their hotel in #Colombia before the presidential visit to attend the Summit of the Americas? The solution is simple; the Secret Service agents need to take vows of celibacy and sobriety as a condition for employment. I would list these two immediately following, “I vow to take a bullet for the President if necessary.”
I would now add that potential recruits should also promise to keep secrets.
