“The Explorers program, a coeducational affiliate of the Boy Scouts of America that began 60 years ago, is training thousands of young people in skills used to confront terrorism, illegal immigration and escalating border violence — an intense ratcheting up of one of the group’s longtime missions to prepare youths for more traditional jobs as police officers and firefighters,” reports the New York Times.
Homeland Security and the FBI are behind the effort to indoctrinate and train the Boy Scouts to become tomorrow’s Gestapo. “Our end goal is to create more agents,” April McKee

The Boy Scouts (just think about their very name for a minute) since founding, have taught basic military principles, they had their little uniforms, they taught many outdoor skills, and provided these young men with a lot of knowledge and skills they would normally not be exposed to.
The Boy Scouts of today are not very much changed for several decades.
These are NOT our future Brownshirts.
IMPERIAL, Calif. — Ten minutes into arrant mayhem in this town near the Mexican border, and the gunman, a disgruntled Iraq war veteran, has already taken out two people, one slumped in his desk, the other covered in blood on the floor.
The responding officers — eight teenage boys and girls, the youngest 14 — face tripwire, a thin cloud of poisonous gas and loud shots — BAM! BAM! — fired from behind a flimsy wall. They move quickly, pellet guns drawn and masks affixed.

That is hilarious!
A Boy Scout Gestapo. The thing that is going to suck is when they tie us in those FEMA trains they are going to use all kind of wicked nots that none of us know how to undo. I bet the Eagle Scouts are going to go all Bruce Lee on us.
Now Alex Jones's crazy butt is afraid of the Boy Scouts. Watch out Alex the Girl Scouts are putting chips in the cookies.. and I dont mean chocolate chips.

Is this the boy scouts you remember. It amazes me how people can't see.
Just so you know... this is not the Boy Scouts. It's the Explorer program and it's specifically for training kids to become Police Officers. I've had friends in High School who were in the program and they did tactical response training all the time. Boy Scouts don't dress down in swat gear ever.
On a side note.... I would watch out for the kid 2nd or 3rd from the left. He reminds me of the fat dude who goes ape# in Full Metal Jacket.. THIS IS MY RIFLE!!!!!!!

Cathy Noriego, also 16, said she was attracted by the guns. The group uses compressed-air guns — known as airsoft guns, which fire tiny plastic pellets — in the training exercises, and sometimes they shoot real guns on a closed range.
“I like shooting them,” Cathy said. “I like the sound they make. It gets me excited.”
