When it comes to the upper echelons of law enforcement, nothing comes easy. There are life and death decisions occurring everyday, and one misstep could bring with it a lifetime of sorrow for everyone involved.
The Secret Service is no different in that regard, but their mission is elevated.

“secret service clearly not happy about protectee going for a walk,” lawyer George Conway wrote on Twitter.
