Man detained after jumping White House fence

From John King, CNN Chief National Correspondent
August 2, 2011 8:56 p.m. EDT

Washington (CNN) -- A man who jumped the White House fence on Tuesday was apprehended by uniformed Secret Service officers who approached him with guns drawn.

The incident was broadcast live on CNN's "John King USA" program, which was produced from the North Lawn of the White House on Tuesday night.

Reporters still at work in the press room saw agents who are stationed closer to the White House with their weapons drawn. At least one agent could be seen on the roof of the building peering through a pair of binoculars.

After the man jumped the fence, armed officers ordered him to lie down and then handcuffed him before taking him into custody. A backpack thrown over the fence and lying on the ground nearby was being checked by security officers, who locked down the area as a precaution.

President Barack Obama was believed to be in the White House at the time.

According to the Secret Service, the detained man is James Dirk Crudup, 41, who is homeless. He will be charged with unlawful entry and contempt of court because he previously had been ordered to stay away from the White House due to past incidents, the agency said.

Sounds like someone right in Obama's demo. He didn't offer him a place to stay? A meal to eat? A job in one of his social programs?

The guy was a local crazy homeless person or the bleeding hearts in DC call them "Urban Outdoorsmen". He didt just show up from out of nowhere or because of the debt issue. He's been in and out of the area.

Doesn't this happen almost every other year? I could have sworn this happened at least twice during the last administration.

Putting the White House in the middle of a city of homeless people may not have been such a good idea.

Isn't that how we can tell how wonderfully our government is operating, though? I mean, if Washington DC is completely ruled by Federal law, shouldn't they have built in some sort of review system?

Unless the homeless people are the first line of defense.
