    Time to dismantle the FED's. Return to state sovereignty and ween FED's out of our society. We dont need to be creating factions of people who have greater rights than others, especially when it has gotten to this level. The one who pointed the gun at the kid needs to be in jail for endangering the life of a child with a weapon.

    Fox said one of the Scouts took a picture of a border official, which spurred agents to detain everyone in that van and search them and their belongings.

    “The agent immediately confiscated his camera, informed him he would be arrested, fined possibly $10,000 and 10 years in prison,” Fox said.

    Oh and look, the story is likely not completely true, especially not as reported. Perhaps the boys were making it up, or maybe it was the Scout Leader, either way there is no evidence that there was ever a gun pointed by any border patrol agents at any of these scouts, and there is videotape to account for all but 13 seconds of the interactions of the agents with the boys. That 13 seconds has no evidence of a gun being drawn either. None of the adults with the scouts saw a gun. The only "evidence" of a gun being drawn is a claim by one of the leaders that two boys reported to him that they had a gun drawn on them, yet the leader also refuses to identify those boys who claimed to have a gun drawn on them, even to be interviewed for their side.

    And on top of this lack of evidence of a gun being drawn, the scout leader also lied about how long they were detained. Video proves that they were detained no more than 50 minutes (I think it was less) at the border, eventhough the scout leader claimed it was 4 hours.

    Oh, and it wasn't the photo of the agent itself that sparked the search. It was another photo on the camera of the scout holding a marijuana bud/plant that prompted the search. And apparently one of the other scout masters does not believe that a gun was really drawn on any of the scouts either.
