Secret Service is in hot water again as Hanover, Germany police warn residents to stay away from windows and avoid waving at Obama!
The warning comes before he visits this month in case they are shot by “trigger-happy American Secret Service agents”.
They have issued flyers to almost 2,000 people that live near the Congress Centre where he will meet there with Chancellor Angela Merkel on April 24.
The Daily Mail also reports:
The elegant zoo district is being turned into a fortress!’ said the Bild newspaper about the security operation, which also includes removing bicycles from streets the presidential motorcade will pass along and turning off mobile phone transmitters at unspecified times.
Trains and bus lines will be halted all around the security zone, manhole covers welded shut and police snipers placed on rooftops.
All overseas visits by American heads of state are traditionally surrounded with extra security, but the terror attacks in Paris last year and Brussels last month have made this excursion even more fraught with danger for the authorities.
The Secret service has been wrought for years, especially the last two, with scandal after scandal.
