Border Patrol union blasts Homeland Security instructions to ‘run away’ and ‘hide’ from gunmen
By Perry Chiaramonte  – FoxNews.com

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).”

The FEMA-administered computer course, entitled “IS-907- Active Shooter: What You Can Do,” is a 45-minute tutorial that provides guidance to all employees on how to recognize indicators of possible workplace violence and what to do should their office be invaded by gunmen and focuses around three main options; either evacuate, hide out, or in dire circumstances, take action.

[…]

“It is always comforting to know that for those of us who carry a weapon when we are off-duty, if we should encounter such a situation, stop a shooter and save countless lives, we can look forward to being disciplined or fired by the Border Patrol because we should have run away to hide and then maybe thrown objects at the deranged killer instead of taking action and stopping him with a firearm,” the union local’s website says.

    Also, stand as tall as you can stretching you arms high over your head as to appear larger and more threatening to the threat.

  2. The Muzzie Terminator Says:

    “Homeland Security instructions ”

    So, does that mean it comes directly from the Bull Dyke, herself?

  3. Noreen Says:

    So they’re issued a uniform, gun AND white flag?? I’d rather be shot than listen to the rest of the world laughing at us, especially the illegals.

  4. Big Frank Says:

    No surprise here, it;s all part of our ‘Dear Leader’s’ wimp campaign.

  5. Gonzo Says:

    Three reasons for this:
    1) To protect drug cartel members from being killed, and their gun confiscated and traced back to Fast & Furious.
    2) Revenge against border patrol for speaking out against obama for Fast and Furious.
    3) An administrative excuse to fire those agents who dont tow the line; set them up, and when they discharge their weapons in self defense, fire them.

    It is the type of underhanded evil I’ve come to expect from our gvt.


  6. It’s like the police in the United Kingdom: “Stop!!! Or I will be forced to say “Stop!! ” again!!!!
