    "Idiot of the week award" goes to this U.S. Border Guard.

    Six volunteer firefighters rushing to assist a small-town fire department in upper New York State, part of a long-standing mutual-aid agreement, were held up while being grilled about their identification by a U.S. Customs official this week.

    The six-man crew from the border town of Lacolle raced toward the border in a yellow fire truck, lights flashing, at about midnight on Sunday.

    In the past, U.S. border guards have waved them through. This time, a customs official questioned and delayed them by between eight and 15 minutes, according to differing accounts.

    Meanwhile, the landmark Anchorage Inn in Rouses Point, N.Y., burned to the ground.


    Guy should be fired.

    Maybe he can get a job screening Wal-Mart Customers.

    I'd rather the whole country burn to the ground before I let one Canadian firefighter into this country illegally.

    This is still not as bad as the Mounties who tasered a guy to death in the Vanvouver airport last month.

    http://www.thestar.com/News/Canada/article/276565

    Four RCMP officers arrive, the camera panning from the frustrated looks on security guards' faces to the men in uniform striding through the hall.

    Loud cries of what sound like "polizia," can be heard as the officers are told by someone that the man is behind the door and only speaks Russian.

    They vault over a railing and walk Dziekanski behind the glass doors. He gestures at his luggage as they appear to be talking to him.

    He throws up his hands in the air and walks away.

    The officers follow, apparently indicating he should put his hands on the counter of an information desk behind the glass.

    Dziekanski stands with his back to the counter and the officers fan around him.

    Crack – the sound of the 50,000 volts of electricity zapping from an officer's gun can be heard.


    Luckily, a citizen caught the whole thing on video.

    Contrary to their squeaky clean image, the Mounties can rival the Gestapo sometimes.

    Oh, and another reason Tasers should be banned. Fucking cowboys.
