Border Patrol union blasts Homeland Security instructions to 'run away' and 'hide' from gunmen


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.

"Throw things at them"?
How about chunks of lead at several hundred feet per second?
This is an insult to Border Patrol agents. They are trained, I would think, quite well and can defend themselves without waiting for the police to rescue them. Honestly can't imagine why DHS would even try this.
