Cops At Two MAJOR Airports Told To “Run And Hide” In The Case Of An Active Shooter

Police officers at two of the largest airports in the U.S. are powerless when in comes to stopping a crazed gunman.

According to CNN, hundreds of police officers at the O’Hare and Midway airports in Chicago are not allowed to carry guns.  Their official title is Aviation Security Officer, however they are certified police officers in the state of Illinois and wear police uniforms and badges with clear markings that they are police officers.

Internal documents revealed that the officers are told to first try to evacuate the area in the case of a shooter, if not possible then they should run and hide.  The documents also advise the trained officers to “turn off lights, lock doors, and remain calm.”

If that response weren’t victimizing enough the documents also state, “we must also ensure that unarmed security personnel do not attempt to become part of the response, but could be invaluable to the evacuation efforts.”

Currently the only officers allowed to carry guns are officers from the Chicago police department.  The unarmed police officers want that to change.  “We’re nothing but casualties if you tell us to run and hide,” an anonymous officer said, “And how can the public look at us if they see police officers running and hiding?  That goes against the very oath we were sworn to that we took.”

Do you think it is outrageous that a trained police officer, sworn to protect and serve the public is not allowed to carry a gun?
