Border Patrol Being Taught To Run, Hide & Throw Things, Not Shoot

It appears that the Obama administration is not only getting in the face of the American people with their immigration policies, but they are also running a little private campaign of their own when it comes to the border patrol. Instead of the border patrol doing their job in an aggressive case in public, they are now being taught to run away and hide and only as a last resort are they to open fire. Wait! No! They can't do that. They are supposed to become "aggressive" and "throw things.

You heard that right. Local 2544 posted a brief statement in regards to the new "training tactics" they are being taught. Welcome to the new world of Barack "The Golfer" Obama and Janet "Can I have another doughnut" Napolitano.

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 Giffords shooting and the Virginia Tech shooting.

These types of mandatory brainwashing courses and the idiocy that accompanies them are simply stunning when they are force-fed to law enforcement officers. Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that any three of the above shootings would have been stopped cold by an off-duty law enforcement officer or a law abiding citizen with a gun. The Fort Hood shooting would have been stopped cold by someone with a gun as well. The shooters in these situations depend on unarmed and scared victims. It gives them the power they seek. We could go on and on with examples of shootings that could have been stopped by someone with a firearm. One of the videos in this course actually shows a terrified female hiding behind a desk as an example of how to "hide" from some deranged shooter. Multiple quizzes throughout the course and a final test ensure repeatedly that we know that we only have three options when encountering some murderous thug in a public place. 1. Run away; 2. Hide; and 3. Only put up a fight as a last resort by acting aggressively and throwing things at the shooter. Not one mention anywhere of "if you are carrying a gun and you have the opportunity take the shooter out". Calling 911 in these instances is obvious, but we all know that waiting on the arrival of uniformed law enforcement will ensure more people are killed, injured, or taken hostage. Telling law enforcement officers that in all instances they are to run away and hide from some thug while innocent victims are butchered is simply inexcusable and pathetic.

It is always comforting to know that for those of us who carry a weapon when we are off-duty, if we should encounter such a situation, stop a shooter and save countless lives, we can look forward to being disciplined or fired by the Border Patrol because we should have run away to hide and then maybe thrown objects at the deranged killer instead of taking action and stopping him with a firearm. This, in addition to the scrutiny and second-guessing that will come from local authorities and the inevitable possibility of lawsuits and criminal conviction.

Welcome to the New Patrol.

This is the kind of thing that makes you want to pull your hair out. We are in the middle of an investigation where this administration used an operation, which was called Fast and Furious but should have been called Dumb and Dangerous, that put thousands of weapons into the hands of some of Mexico's most dangerous drug cartels. Some of these weapons were used to kill American and Mexican citizens, including border patrol agent Brian Terry. They want their people to be weak and cut off at the knees while the real criminals face no handicaps. This is a demonstration of absolute stupidity on the part of the Obama administration who provide such non-sensical training.

It's not bad enough that the federal government, under this administration want our guns, but now they don't seem to want border patrol to use theirs either. What kind of fantasy world do these lunatics, who are running the asylum, live in?

  1. Calling law enforcement won't do much good either. They are being forced to barter with other agencies for ammunition. Most police Departments have been forced to cut back so much that they barely have enough manpower to do their jobs. It all makes me wonder why the military and local police departments are being defunded, and citizens disarmed, while Homeland Security is being outfitted with not only BILLIONS of rounds of ammo, but more than 6,000 armored personnel carriers? Does Obama expect N. Korea to attack us? Or is he anticipating a civil uprising in protest of his decidedly hostile actions towards We the People and the 2nd amendment which protects us from his deprivations? Until he comes clean and reveals his true agenda, I'm going to err on the side of caution and expect the worst. I will be prepared as will millions of others who can see past the knee-jerk rhetoric and directly into his dark heart.

    I guess pin-pulled grenades would count as things to throw...

  3. Here's a way to create jobs in the US. Hire about 2.5 million laid off construction workers. Build a wall a 100 ft deep and 100 ft high along the whole border. Post Armed border patrol agents a mile apart along the border. Plant claymore mines within 100 yards of the wall on the Mexican side along the whole border. So the wall is actually a 100 yards in on our turf. The Mines start on the border and work back. Get rid of the Water buffalo's that make the trip through the dessert easier. We could probably do it in 12 years. Problem solved!

  4. "White Mosque?" More like "The Black Mosque." Hasn't anybody noticed the yellow backdrop behind the B-HO when he "talks to the Nation?" It has Arabic art and Obama & Moochelle have replaced some of the interior decorations inside the WH with Arabic-Islamic art & decor. I think It would be poetic to have dozens of Haz-Mat units, fumigation units & pest-control units from across the Nation parked directly outside the WH and in plain view of the Obamas-------crews standing outside also in full view, dressed in tyvek suits and breathing apparatus ----- on the day Obama (Rodent-In-Chief) his concubine (Sewer Rat "Munchin' & Moochin' Michelle) & their spawn vacate the premises in January of 2013. Send the message loud & clear that they've contaminated the People's House (The White House) with their scum, stink & stench.

  5. Homeland Security? What's the security when the offiecers who are supposed to enforcfe the law are told to run and hide. This idea is the product of IDIOT BUREAUCRATS who have been given a pencil and piece of paper and told to write down every STUPID thing that enters their IDIOT MINDS.
    Who the hell thought of this? I thought Fast & Furious was the ULTIMATE in STUPIDITY - I was wrong.

  6. Just a hint of things to come during the ODILDO administration. Get prepared!!!!

    There were armed civilians at Gabby's shooting. They held fire due to the running of all the people. You only fire at a clear, clean shot.
