Iowan Boy Scouts Allegedly Harassed by Border Patrol at the Canadian Border into Alaska
National Review Online ^ | 07/25/2014 | Ryan Lovelace

While the Obama administration has begun looking into ways to ensure safe passage to the United States for Honduran children, federal officials have reportedly harassed an Iowa Boy Scout Troop seeking to enter Alaska through Canada.

Jim Fox, leader of the Mid-Iowa Boy Scout Troop 111, told an Iowa television station one of his scouts took a photo of a Border Patrol official and agents immediately leapt into action. “The agent immediately confiscated his camera, informed him he would be arrested, fined possibly $10,000 and 10 years in prison,” he said. Fox alleges one agent drew his pistol and pointed it a scout’s head after the scout attempted to retrieve luggage from the top of the van in which the scouts were traveling.

I thought the Obama regime had made Boy Scouts illegal anyway.

Boy Scouts who teach morality and responsibility have been outlawed in the US.

“The Border Patrol agents also inquired as to why the scouts were traveling with excessive amounts of lighters, matches, and knives”

Gees, I never knew that Boy Scouts might go camping?

No problem. I was just crosslinking so those comments could be seen if anyone was
interested. Those postings were from a couple days ago.

The search function isn’t exactly top-rate.

Cut people some slack, persnickety one.

"This is at least the 10th posting of this story on FR. Why?"

Because the Search function on FR works just a bit better than Obamacare online...

"The search function isn’t exactly top-rate."
true...preciseness, is the key, unless you use the title function

"I did search but found nothing. No need for calling me names."
no profane insult intended or implied..it was for newbies.
(There's a search function?)

I’ll see how it works. I stopped using it a long time ago due to poor performance.

I’ll follow your tip.

Thanks.

I was actually surprised when I thought this news hadn’t been posted. I did a title search for “boy scouts” and “border patrol” and came up empty. It’s not worth fretting over.

I couldn’t make the search function well for over a decade.

I gave up on it.

If you’re right about your tip, thanks. If you’re not right, thanks, too. Good advice is always appreciated.
