Border Patrol agents in Arizona are blasting their bosses for telling them, along with all other Department of Homeland Security employees, to run and hide if they encounter an "active shooter."
It's one thing to tell civilian employees to cower under a desk if a gunman starts spraying fire in a confined area, say members of Tucson Local 2544/National Border Patrol Council, but to give armed law enforcement professionals the same advice is downright insulting. The instructions from DHS come in the form of pamphlets and a mandatory computer tutorial.
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" union leader Brandon Judd wrote on the website of 3,300-member union local. 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)."

Oh now I get it.. Because Border Patrol agents might end up getting killed by one of Eric Holder’s ‘Fast & Furious’ criminal informants like Agent Brian Terry did?
I’d “throw things” alright...copper jacketed lead at super sonic velocities. I’ll take my chances with a jury of my peers.
My gosh, but The Onion sure comes up with some funny stuff!
Did they give them(cartel) more than guns?
This is Obama’s America. It is sickening and time for armed citizens to take action. And just think, there are some on this forum who hate Romney so much that they do not care if Obama gets another four years. Fools. We will have no more country in four years.
Which cartel did Obama arm with F&F? Have they run rival cartels off using Obama guns?
I agree. Ignore the feds, implement the AZ law and then instead of referrals to the feds why don’t the AZ agents themselves physically deport the aliens across the border? I am not familiar with that border so I am not clear on whether this is even possible. But what comes to my mind is for the States to simply take the law into their own hands and ignore the Federal Government and the Supreme Court.
This is a different model than formal secession and armies. This is virtual secession on certain issues and laws. I am not sure how the feds would be able to do much about it. Then if they do show up with tanks and guns against their own people and physically prevent AZ from deporting aliens then wouldn’t that be a sight? The feds showing they have enough resources to go after their own people but not enough to go after illegals?
No, he wants an excuse to put boots on the ground in the U.S. and would love for AZ to be first.

That was my first thought. I’ve read the ATF was sweating bullets (no pun intended) that Jared Loughner had shot Gabrielle Giffords with a F&F weapon.
Another American killed on American soil with a weapon supplied by Eric withHolder’s people would not be good for oHomo.
They're both bought and paid for. It explains everything.
From Obama’s earliest writings, it is clear he hates America and supports any and all efforts to destroy America and everything she stands for.
With secure borders ONLY innocent Mexicans would be killed by our government's actions. We can't have that now can we.
He may well have reached the point where the citizenry should ignore him, as should the employees.
Even Napolitano has no more idea of what to do than to run for the hills.
Why not just take their weapons away?
Documented proof that the FEDS have deeded Arizona to the Sinaloa Cartel, based on a deal between Calderon and Obama because they couldnt stop the cartels.
Calderon is doing his best to stop the cartels, but obama’s arming them to the teeth with military grade weapons.
Is there any reason to keep this Administration in office?
