DHS Tells Border Patrol Agents: Run and Hide when Shootings Occur

The Department of Homeland Security is telling Border Patrol agents in Arizona to run away and hide if they encounter a shooter in a public place.

Agents took a FEMA administered course called “IS-907 – Active Shooter: What You Can Do,” a 45-minute computer course telling the employees to either evacuate, hide out, or take action only if they need to.

Border Patrol agents in Arizona are not happy. The members of Tucson Local 2544/National Border Patrol Council think it is downright insulting to tell armed law enforcement agents to do the exact same thing as civilians. Only as a last resort are the agents even allowed to throw objects at the shooter.

“We are then advised to 'call law enforcement' and wait for their arrival (presumably, while more innocent victims are slaughtered),” the council writes on its website. “Shooting incidents cited in the course are Columbine, the Giffords shooting and the Virginia Tech shooting.”

The site continues, “Telling law enforcement officers that in all instances they are to run away and hide from some thug while innocent victims are butchered is simply inexcusable and pathetic.”

Sounds like a typical "group think" solution.

No where in the world will you find a monument or statue to a committee.

However, you will find plenty of statues honoring Men of Action, made in brass naturally, to match a certain part of their anatomy.

Discussed ad nauseum both here and in Coptalk. Even had some folks attend the training. Its for civilians and somehow got mixed in with the sworn staff training. Just another stupid admin mistake - we had something similar a few years back at my agency with workplace violence being the topic. Training was that, if we saw a fight, turn around, leave the area and report it.

I work in a jail - know how many workplace fights I've participated in?
