IRS, EPA, HHS, ABC, and XYZ should not be armed in this manner. The sheriff should be used for anything requiring arrest.
That’s OK. They can’t be sued.
Enforcement agencies are horrible with this sort of thing. Our county agengy has had a few incidences.
I know of no one in the Marine Corps who had an accidental discharge who did not suffer the loss of pay, pay grade and possible brig time. And as it should be.
If other agencies took this as the standard, there would be very few incidences. Of course, the caliber of most people who are recruited into policing agencies now are hardly what I would call the cream of the crop.
Honestly, just 11 incidents in 3 years, with mostly only mild property damage as a result, is probably among the best records for government bodies with tens of thousands of armed personnel in this century.
Wed keep asking the silly question if the US Armed Forces will ever open fire on Americans? Who needs USAF when we have fully trained and armed forces attached to just about every agency of the Fed?!
How convenient, now the IRS can handle both death and taxes. Real one stop shopping.
Not to worry. They have plenty more bullets.
This is very taxing.
” the agency... does not always provide remedial training to agents who fired their weapons due to negligence.”
But, the agency will give them a bonus.
They should not even have guns. If they face a problem with someone, they should call in local authorities or the FBI.
