Abraham Bolden led a life of excellence in law enforcement in a time when the Blue Line was mostly White. In 1960 He was tabbed by Kennedy as he worked in Chicago law enforcement as "the Jackie Robinson of the Secret Service".


you haven't heard about Abraham Bolden during Black History month, because after helping to prevent JFK's assassination in the weeks before Dallas, Bolden was arrested on the very day he went to Washington to tell the Warren Commission about those attempts. Caught in a maze of National Security concerns that only became clear after four million pages of JFK files were released in the 1990s, Bolden was sentenced to six years in prison, becoming America's first National Security Whistleblower.


Bolden went to Washington in the Spring of 1964 to tell Warren Commission staff about the Chicago and Tampa attempts, and other Secret Service laxity, such as late night drinking bouts by the agents. News reports of the late-night drinking of Secret Service agents the night before JFK's assassination were threatening to become a major scandal, but the Secret Service couldn't reveal that the agents were blowing off steam after the stress of the recent plots against JFK in Chicago and Tampa. While Warren Commission staff had heard vague rumors of the Chicago plot, they had been told nothing about the Tampa attempt (which would continued to be withheld from the later Congressional investigations into JFK's assassination). Bolden was arrested the day he arrived in Washington to talk to Warren Commission staff. Bolden himself had previously arrested both of his accusers, one of whom later admitted committing perjury against Bolden. But the Chicago judge told the jury he felt Bolden was guilty, and Bolden was convicted and sentenced to six years in jail.snip.

Abraham Bolden contends in his book that the Secret Service agents were hung over. Is that a reason this happened?


Abraham Bolden is an extremely old man, but he lives. Calling Jesse Ventura he has a story you want to hear. Link to Mr. Bolden's book

Good post, I've never heard of him.
Probaly wont hear much about it after this though. Information like this always seems to fall into the cracks of time.

I've heard of him before. Interestingly, the drinking before a job wasn't the only thing that was unusual. According to some the path JFK took was not the one originally intended and was changed. This was very much abnormal. Not to mention all the CIA links and even a link to Nixon.

Those attempts were in the news.
However the details from his angle might be threatening to the bad guys.
"Bolden went to Washington in the Spring of 1964 to tell Warren Commission staff about the Chicago and Tampa attempts, and other Secret Service laxity,"

Well there is some kind of service that is active thats for sure.
