Secret Service dog falls to its death from roof of New Orleans parking deck

A Secret Service dog fell to its death Saturday night while doing a sweep of a multi-story parking deck near a hotel where Vice President Joe Biden was speaking.

The Belgian Malanois fell from the roof of the six-story deck adjacent to The Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans where Biden was speaking at a fundraiser for U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu, reported CNN affiliate WWLTV.

Secret Service spokesman Max Milien told CNN the death was a "tragic accident."

    Just maybe that is why Romney tied his dog down to the roof. At least Romney doesn't eat dogs. It must have been a democrat dog, we all know the democrats like to lead from behind while they scream forward totally oblivious to that cliff they are about to jump off. Talk about stupidity and animal cruelty, those democrats shouldn't be allowed to own a dog much less run a country.

      As a proud member of the "vast right wing conspiracy" I have to say..... take the meds the nice doctor gave you, they will stop the voices, and might even reduce your urge to post inane and moronic comments on news websites.

    Oh no. Poor pup.

    I'm surprised no one has posted "Obama's fault" yet.

      That's because we all know it's Bush's fault, as is everything else that happens during Obama's presidency.

      It's not my fault half the country believes the world owes them something and wants to mooch off of other people who actually earn it for themselves but have to support a bunch of leaches. Hey Chrissy, the leach on my couch suddenly got a job and pays his own rent after I threw everything he owns on the steet. I bet welfare junkies will get a job to after we cut them off.

      2% of welfare recipients are lifelong or generational; the rest are using it as it is intended: as a hand UP, not a hand OUT.
      If you know of somebody abiusing the system, turn them in.

    And things must be very different in your state because in Michigan you have to spend 10 hours a week looking for a job, and its verified and 20 hours a week doing community service, to get cash assistance.

    How does a dog fall from a parking garage?

    Did he jump the wall? Was he set on the wall?

    None of this makes sense. Some sick, sociopath SS agent threw him.
