    Bean bags are for crown control, not against arms. There was, and may still be, a serious error in tactical ops SOPs in BorTac. That whole thing is a good example of why I say that.

    You think? It's called bringing a bean bag to a rifle fight.
    That ranks right up there with taking a knife to a gun fight or a handgun to a rifle fight.

    Our country is run by a bunch of spineless assclowns who have no balls.

    "illegal immigrant"
    "illegal border entrants"
    Search warrant for fingerprints?
    Charged with "illegal reentry after deportation"
    What kinda cr*p is this?
    Bean bags, what they think the illegals are gonna stop and make a burrito or something? (my wife is 'hispanic' so no I am not a bigot/racist/prejudiced)
    I am sick of this!

    When desk-bound office pukes make the "Rules of Engagement", good men get killed. Same in any 'war' or other combat action. Whoever made that reg about using beanbags should be reamed, but it won't happen.

    My thoughts exactly Clyde. The most glaring thing is that they observed the Mexicans were carrying AK-47's, and still shot them with bean bags. I understand less than lethal practices to subdue someone, but not when they are armed. That's insanity. I cannot wait to talk to my cousins in BP about this. I'm glad I didn't choose BP as my occupation. God bless our men and women in harm's way. Anyone living close to the border that isn't armed is a sitting duck. Our ranch is a good 100 miles away from the border but we don't leave the house without being armed, of course the biggest reason is for predator control, of the four legged variety, but the two legged variety is a lot more dangerous.

    This is just wrong to hamstring the people that are to watch our borders in this manner.
    It's like when I broke my right wrist and had to wipe with my left hand ,you can get the job done but not with out paying a price.
