A crying shame

I saw this on one of the cable news shows and I thought it was ridiculous.

I did the search and come to find out it was true. If this doesn't make your blood boil, I don't know what it will take.

It's been confirmed by the the border control that agents are being trained to run away and hide if someone starts shooting.

Yeah, that's what I said, border patrol agents are being trained to run away and hide if there is ever shooting.

Mike Snyder writes U.S. border patrol agents are now actually being trained to run away and hide if they encounter an "active shooter" in a public location. If they are cornered by the shooter, they are being trained to "throw things" at the shooter.

So I guess we are rally not concerned with our borders.

I guess right now we let the little men in green suits just work and maybe we'll find a time to stop that.

The website of the National Border Patrol Council of Tucson, Arizona, and it describes the new "training" that border patrol agents are being forced to go through.

In another nauseating series of "Virtual Learning Center" brainwashing courses that border patrol agents are forced to sit behind a computer for hours and endure, we are now taught in an "Active Shooter" course that if we encounter a shooter in a public place, we are to "run away" and "hide". If we are cornered by such a shooter, we are to (only as a last resort) become "aggressive" and "throw things" at him or her. We are then advised to "call law enforcement" and wait for their arrival (presumably, while more innocent victims are slaughtered). Shooting incidents cited in the course are Columbine, the Gifford shooting and the Virginia Tech shooting.

If someone pulls out a gun and starts shooting, our border patrol agents should be trained to pull out their own guns and shoot the criminal dead. But that would make too much common sense.

We get the politicians we deserve.

Its time to repent.

Re-think and re-vote.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

didn't they tell you to rread the news or are you still recovering from one of your govmt perks

I am a Border Patrol Agent, and have been since 1997. I am also a member of the Border Patrol's Special Operations team, BORTAC. NONE of what this man is saying is true. He is either a liar or incredibly stupid. Not sure which one is more dangerous.
