This Isn't Sparta!

At first I thought this was a joke. But then I remembered:

This ain't Sparta.
This is Homeland Security.
From Fox News:
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
And don't forget the moist towelettes and chocolates.
“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)."
No matter where or how you serve, the ROE will all be the same under Obama and his minions. I was also taught to throw things, like 230 gm hollow points. I still do a pretty good job of it.
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.
The motto of the US Border patrol is "Honor First." You really have to pity these poor devils. Next thing DHS will order them to don blue nitrile gloves and grope someone's crotch while they're being shot at.

I suspect that the Obama Administration would want to extend these guidelines to all law enforcement -- with the exception of the US Secret Service who protects "The One".

It would remove all of those embarrassing confrontations if only all law enforcement officers remained in the station throughout their shift. You can imagine how much more polite and thoughtful people would be to each other if we simply dismissed the police.

Active shooters such as Major Nidal Hassan US Army who were screaming Allah u Akbar and killing US Service men and women wouldn't be apprehended, saving the POTUS of having to save a brother Muslim from the noose.

You can think of a million examples...

LL - sadly enough it is true.

Oh, you forgot about the Active Christians. Gotta go after them if they are unarmed and on their knees praying.

More proof that liberals are cowards.

My guess is this policy has already become reality in Dearborn Michigan where officers turn a blind eye to Muslim assaults on Christians.

Has to be intentional from these farkin goons Sig. They're sitting around splitting guts over this stuff.

Just wanted to point out for anyone who does not know, it is obvious, janet hasn't the faintest idea how to hold a gun.

Just like everything else in the obama administration from soup to nuts, it is fake. That they actually took the time and effort to haul this idiot out somewhere and put a shotgun in her paws is also worth noting.

Seriously, Everything is fake. Isn't that wild?

Perhaps its a litigation management policy developed by the office of the solicitor general? Gotta avoid those monster claims brought under the Federal Tort Claims Act. (snark off)

Honest to God, these people are completely frickin clueless. Nov 6 can't come soon enough. Ohhh BTW, Democrats, you guys vote on November 7th.

The mandate is a tax
The mandate is a penalty.
ObamaCare is unconstitutional.
Take you pick, who cares, it's semantics, the point is Obama and his supporters distort the facts any way they can and any what they sand defeat the opposition. . That has always been their game.
But have no fear, don't let your hearts be troubled, Romney will be fine. The country has wised up to Obama and his dirty tricks
