Another Jumper Over White House Fence

Another day, another fence jumper clearing the fence which the White House from intrusion is supposed to protect
At least this time the Secret Service acted quickly and his sprint to the White House was stopped with an arrest
Here the jumper threw over a back pack
What if it contained forty pounds of explosive to be used in a suicide attack?
If intruders can jump over the perimeter fence at will
Whether in protest, for publicity or worse with thoughts to maim or kill
Simple solution is to double or triple the Selective Service on exterior patrol
Or make the fence higher forcing an intruder to have to vault with a pole
Not over if skilled on to a soft spot of grass but a strip of spiked concrete
Sharpened to pierce the soles protecting a vaulter’s feet
Put up the warning signs to keep the lawyers for these jumpers at bay
As long as the fence is not solid, the exterior of the White House and its grounds will still be on display
If the Selective Service finally is doing a security upgrade
Add a few trained falcons to knock down any drones overhead in parade
