Why are Border Agents ordered to shoot non lethal beanbags ?

This is horrendous, they know these people are carrying guns.

  • You mean the Government lied when they said, "“There was no order given to CBP law enforcement personnel – now or in the past – that dictates the use of less-than-lethal devices before using deadly force,” stated CBP’s Southwest Border Field Branch Office of Public Affairs."

  • But then again~ Obama did say~ "So the bottom line is this: The southern border is more secure today than at any time in the past 20 years"~ President Barrack H. Obama...


    Apprehensions may be DOWN overall (but higher in certain border locales).... I would be curious to know the statistics on the deaths of Americans at the order, Mr President....

  • IMO, they should deploy a few snipers with orders to shoot to kill. The possiblity of sudden death can be a great deterrent.

  • Why kill someone when you can disable them instead.

    Have you ever been hit with a beanbag or a rubber bullet? I haven't but based on the photos i've seen of people who have it looks like that shit hurts, a lot.

    And once the word gets out, and it will, that we are using shooting non-lethal rounds to "disable" while they have real guns.....yeah, they'll shoot first so they won't be "disabled" and our people will be dead.

  • Up, It certainly didn't hurt them enough to stop them from shooting did it?
