Beanbags?  Beanbags?  Beanbags?  Beanbags? 

You've got to be kidding me.  Border Patrol agent Brian Terry died in a shootout that, according to Fox News, at some point involved "Terry and and an elite squad of federal agents fir(ing) bean bags -- not bullets -- at a heavily armed drug cartel crew"????

How stupid is that?  What in the world could they have been thinking?  What kind of idiotic rules of engagement is this?  You're approaching people you suspect of being heavily armed criminals and instead of firing real guns at them, you fire bean bags at them?

This is worse than bringing a knife to a gun fight. It's a wonder Terry was the only one killed that day.
