    Border Patrol told to "run away and hide" if caught in active shooter situation

    http://www.local2544.org/

    06-20-12 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.

    First, it is nice to see that they included law-abiding citizens. Not meant as snark, meant as actual gratitude that we are recognized in the way we want to be recognized.

    Second - in case you were planning not to read past the blurb - you really ought to. It gets "better".

    stay safe.

    It just keeps coming. More and more our leaders are turning our citizens and law enforcement into sheeple. Just like police cars no longer having "To Protect and Serve" on them any more.

    Mayor Doomburg

    Could we get an order for the heavily armed bodyguards of NY Mayor Doomburg to turn tail and run when ever a criminal gets close? In NY we will have to buy them track shoes.

    Why, only the cops have guns.
    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.
