Canadian Border Guards ill-equipped to deal with the armed and dangerous

There is a dangerous criminal on the way to Canada so the border guards run away. Security is one of the strongest justifications for the existence of the state - when our 'defenders' run away, citizens might want to come up with alternative means of security, except we aren't allowed to have a gun to protect ourselves against the violent criminals.

Thanks to Darcey of Dust My Broom for dashing his readers sense of safety.

Customs officers in Ontario walked off the job Wednesday, saying they were not equipped to deal with an "armed and dangerous" fugitive believed to be heading for the border.

The walkout caused huge backlogs at the Niagara Falls, Ont., border crossing after customs agents began exercising their right to refuse to work if they feel their lives are threatened.

Within hours, all of the full-time customs agents and most of the students working at the Fort Erie crossing had left their posts.

By mid-evening Wednesday, all full-time agents at the Rainbow Bridge in Niagara Falls, the Peace Bridge in Fort Erie and the bridge in Queenston, Ont., had walked off the job.

[..] Ron Moran, national president of the Customs and Excise Union that represents the agents, told The Globe and Mail that guards in Fort Erie were issued a photo of a criminal who escaped from custody in Winchester, Ky., and told to let him through.

The idea, as he understood it, was to allow the man to walk into the waiting arms of the police.

However, a Niagara Regional Police official said he had no knowledge of such instructions, but confirmed that cellphone tracking had suggested the man might be heading for the Peace Bridge in Fort Erie and was thought to be driving a van and in the company of a woman.

"The person is to be considered armed and dangerous," Inspector Bob Ciupa of the Niagara Regional Police told The Globe last night.
And let us not forget about this chainsaw touting looney who recently crossed the Canadian - US border with a homemade sword, a hatchet, a knife, brass knuckles and a chain saw stained with blood after killing two people:

"You KILLED them? Were there any witnesses? Holy fuck... OK, we have to think here... Oh wait a minute, it's easy, just make a run for the border. Go to Canada, just wave a gun at them and drive right through. Do you know how big Canada is? You can just disappear. And they're IDIOTS there."
