Zell Miller was right.
Insanity!! ...my head is going to explode!
These sorry bastards. They sell full up assault weapons of all verities to our enemies and then issue ROE where our defenders shoot friggin BEAN BAGS in return. Dear God, what a complete and total travesty.
People need to go to jail...for the sake of our nation we MUST get this administration and anyone thinking this way out of and away from ANY position of trust.
MURDERGATE: Eric Holder and Fast and Furious
Is this satire?
David Codrea: FBI unsealing indictment could endanger Terry murder suspects
So who will kill them first - if they aren’t already dead.
The Drug Lords(US) or the Drug Lords, (Mexico) or the Drug Lords (Cartel)
Man. You got that right. Un-bephuckin’-real. I would laugh, but I can’t.
Both the article and picture used to illustrate PC madness, are real.
I bet the shooters (who had bullets) were laughing. Bean bags.
Bean bags? Wouldn’t a set of steel horseshoes been the better choice? What the hell is wrong with Napolitiano?
Sounds like something America the Stupid would do...
I guess if Terry had cursed at them in Spanish;he would have been charged with a hate crime!
those things can give you a nasty bruise.
I remember when that picture first appeared. I said at the time that we just threw away Afghanistan.
Just like the US Government to send people with bean bags against live ammo.
This is nuts! What kind of a gun shoots beanbags?
I’m fairly sure he had a back-up weapon of harsh language.
The “GI’s” are in a combat zone, armed to the teeth and ready to go. The GUY is equipped with a STEEL HELMET. The GALS are equipped with designer scarves. Do the rifles the soldierettes carry shoot bullets or beanbags?
Germany and Japan should have bided their time.
Who claims credit for this PC INSANITY?
They have bean bag rounds for 12 and 10 ga. shotguns.
Non-lethal, to everyone but the shooter. God, does this piss me off.
This is neither satire nor "new" news.
I thought the fact the agents were armed with beanbags was already common knowledge. I guess until now it was just a “rumor” that had me fuming.
Shotgun! I had heard this a long time ago and found it believable in this day and time when we “have” to use less than lethal force if at all possible. HUH? AR vs AK and most likely the AK is gonna win out with it’s more powerful cartridge. I say we let these guys on the border use M-14s. I’m pretty sure there are a bunch in a warehouse someplace.
Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.
The guy is equipped with a PASGT kevlar helmet. The ol’ M-1 STEEL HELMET went buh-bye in the 80’s
“For the first time, federal officials revealed Monday that murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and an elite squad of federal agents FIRST fired bean bags not bullets at a heavily armed drug cartel crew in the mountains south of Tucson in December 2011.”
First fired bean bags. That would seem to suggest that they may have switched from using bean bags to using bullets? I don’t know.
I’m ashamed of my government. Napolitano and Holder should resign NOW!
I have a half dozen rounds of the 12ga stuff, someone gave me...one day I will have to experiment with the stuff and see what it can do.....set up some ballistic gel(or something) at close range and see it it does anything at all.....unbelievable that it was issued for any purpose other that crowd control
Beanbags!!! Beanbags!!! Would that be like shooting as prepackaged meal at the mexos? Sheesh! Many in the nobama administration should be in prison for a variety of reasons. None are...
This ain’t ground breaking news. Katie Pavlich in her book Fast and Furious mentions that our guys had to fight with bean bags.
Major Garret interviewed her on CSPAN’s After Words, and he kept peppering her that there were no paper trails with Holder’s signature on them. That was about the only retort he could make against Pavlich’s rapid fire presentation of furious facts. She was great.
I want some reporter to ask Romney if, when he becomes president, will he still pursue Holder? Will he do his job to faithfully execute the laws and bring this criminal to justice?
The Administration doesn’t want to alienate Mexicans who may become Democratic voters some day.
AR vs AK and most likely the AK is gonna win out with its more powerful cartridge.
It depends primarily on a heavy dose of luck, some skill and the one that has the superior brain housing group. I’ll take my CAR-15 over an AK any day of the week. The M-14 is a marvelous shooter and there are a great many still in long term storage. Not my top pick for a close-in 10-20 yard quick engagement. I would actually prefer a Thompson, but I will definitely take my CAR-15 (converted).
Bean bags???!!!!Headline should read:
ATF Murders its Own Agent
Probably just stun and bruise. They showed these on a show awhile back (don’t remember what it was). They’re pretty short range. Best guess: 30 yds. max.
The Mexico violence is spilling over to our side very quickly and we are left with "spitballs"!
All this in an effort to disarm the American citizens....we must win this fight in November!
Throwing beans at a Mexican? How racist!
Rules of engagement will kill our people everytime.
...I guess that the 16,000 new IRS agents hired to enforce ObamiCare will be issued with bean bags to accompany the 16,000 shotguns just purchased.
Bwahahaha! I didn’t catch that! Now this is something we can nail Napolitano for and it will stick!
for illegals, the INF needs to load their double gun with rice bags in one barrel and bean bags in the other...YUM...
....they can wait on line for free cheese just like every other indigent.
on the southern border they should be using refried bean bags
wow this is some joke!
I used one to break up a dog fight, once. Knocked a neighbor’s big dog down for a couple of seconds before he jumped up and headed home as fast as he could go. Heard later he had some bruised ribs, but was OK otherwise. Never came back to my yard, tho.
Interesting that one of the BP union locals freaked out about having to view an active shooter training lecture meant for office staff, but I don’t remember anybody screaming about this ROE. The Sector Chief was transferred right after this incident, but I don’t know if that was punitive. In general BP leadership is pretty poor so there isn’t any reason to believe the replacement would be any better.
What happens is this:
Every day more illegal Mexicans sneak across the border.
Every day likewise, more illegal Mexicans become legal.
Eventually the number of (legal) Mexicans will become so large, that combined with the number of blacks - it will become large enough to be unbeatable.
To stop that, we must bring back American jobs. To eliminate the Chinese threat to America.
To CHANGE that, we must stop sending American jobs overseas.
Stop sucking up to Mexican illegals, and bring back AMERICAN jobs.
Because later will be too late.
