Secret Service agent passed out drunk: Should the head of the Secret Service resign in the wake of all the agency's scandals overseas?

  • Secret Service What!

    In a time like this, we need all the protection that we can get, because one bad slip up could mean a life time full of pain and repairing, if he wanted to drink then he should have had some one take his place, but we are not perfect, and he made a mistake but hopefully he know that one mistake in the secret service, could mean the last for the government. That is why you have to stay foucus at all times.

  • No, the resignation of the head of the Secret Service would not be appropriate.

    No, the fact that a Secret Service agent passed out drunk should not lead to the resignation of the head of the Secret Service. The agent who passed out drunk should be terminated, however, the termination or resignation of the head of the Secret Service would serve no useful purpose. The Secret Service organization needs stable leadership at this time. The current head of the Secret Service has no doubt learned a valuable lesson from this incident and can provide better leadership because of the lesson he has learned.

  • The head of the Secret Service should not resign in the wake of all the agency's scandals overseas.

    Although these scandals have damaged the agency, the head of the Secret Service does not need to resign. The people who are responsible for the misconduct have been dismissed, and this punishment is appropriate. Forcing the head of the agency to leave would be inappropriate and it would cause too much discord.

  • The indiscretions of a few should not create a trigger response.

    The Secret Service agents charged with protecting the President of the United States were caught behaving badly. If the agents in question and their actions were addressed under the Agency's protocol for employee action review, then the head of the Secret Service has acted appropriately within the department guidelines for handling employee issues. Hypothetically, If the head of a bank discovered that employees were comprising customer's financial security and addressed the issue as an employee issue, in accordance with the human resource guidelines, would the head of the bank be expected to resign? I think not.
