Coming soon, Armed Boy Scouts

NY times article describing the Explorer’s Program, an offshoot from Boy Scouts, running training drills for border patrol and anti-terror operations…with 14 year olds.

Really? Really!?!?

This one is just so outrageous I don’t think I have words for it.

This is a test bed for Obama’s mandatory Civilian Service program that we should see in the very near future.

Seriously people, WTF?

I think this excerpt kind of explains it all-

“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.” ”

How is this not scary to you?

And this part is also particularly telling as well-

“There have been numerous cases over the last three decades in which police officers supervising Explorers have been charged, in civil and criminal cases, with sexually abusing them.Several years ago, two University of Nebraska criminal justice professors published a study that found at least a dozen cases of sexual abuse involving police officers over the last decade. Adult Explorer leaders are now required to take an online training program on sexual misconduct.”

Well thank Jebbus for that, they have to take an online sexual misconduct class. Problem solved! Yay!

I urge you, if you have children do not let them sign up for this. I mean really. Come on.
