Recently a Boy Scout troop from Iowa was harassed by police at the border between Canada an Alaska, because one of the Scouts took a picture of a border patrol agent while they were driving by.  The group of two dozen Scouts were riding in 4 separate vans into Alaska when one of them took the picture.   What happened next is sure to have traumatize these children for life.

When the agents noticed the young boy snapping the picture, they immediately pulled over the van that he was traveling in and detained everyone in the vehicle, while shouting and pointing guns.

Scout leader Jim Fox told a local news crew how the incident played out.

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

Fox then said that one of the agents pulled his gun on the children.

“He hears a snap of a holster, turns around, and here’s this agent, both hands on a loaded pistol, pointing at the young man’s head,” Fox added.

Fox and the boys were held without charges for 4 hours before they were able to continue their trip into Alaska.

Sadly, this type of activity occurs at border crossing around the world on a daily basis.  Children are regularly threatened, detained, imprisoned or worse, by individuals who are convinced by politicians to guard the lines that they have drawn around their empires.
