Boston motorcycle cop hurt in crash involving Italian prime minister's motorcade

Motorcycle in front of Museum of Science

A BPD officer providing escort service for Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi was injured in a crash on O'Brien Highway in front of the Museum of Science this morning.

The Secret Service tweeted it is "praying for the speedy recovery" of officer James Scopa.

Police had initially identified the motorcade as belonging to Hillary Clinton, in town for a fundraiser, but later updated to say it was a motorcade for the Italian prime minister.

A $10,000/per person fundraiser. Those evil rich people the Democrats hate strike again.

"escort service for Hillary Clinton" - shouldn't that be for Bill?

(in all seriousness, best wishes to the injured officer)

The secret service provides protection to all the top runners in the presidential campaign. Bernie, Clinton, Trump, Rubio, etc...they all get it.

Some Uhub anons apparently do not get it.

Rubio never had secret service protection.

Candidates have to apply for service protection and USSS approves/denies their request based upon perceived threats and likelihood of their candidacy.

Trump and Carson got it in October (and there was a lot of debate about whether Carson should lose it after his campaign entered zombie mode).

Hillary has it by virtue of being FLOTUS (and has had it since 1992 and will have it for the rest of her life, or until she relinquishes it).

Bernie got his right around the IA Caucus this year.

Cruz and Kasich don't have secret service at the current time. Neither have any other Republicans so far (aside from the two mentioned above).

Let's not equate adultery/sexual harassment with solicitation of sex, OK?

Hope the officer makes a full and speedy recovery. Sickened by some of the comments using the tragedy of an officer to spew ignorant hate. Get a life.

Your post is meta.

Integrity is recognizing that we're all a part of the same hypocrisy that we poke fun at.

and wishing for a speedy recovery. Suspect more details will come out soon,

My armenian peeps have been chatting nonstop about the visit of Armenia's president to Harvard and area churches. When I first heard of this motorcycle escort accident I was worried that the officer was part of the motorcade that was escorting him around. The local Armenian community would have been devastated if an officer had got hurt as part of that visit.

Police spokeswoman said she did not know what motorcade the officer was escorting.

Secret Service tweeted about the incident.

Great reporting by the Globe.

The House Select Committee investigating the Clinton motorcade scandal will leave no stone unturned until the truth of this matter is found and the guilty parties exposed!
