BORTAC Is Not Following the Rules

BORTAC, the Border Patrol’s international swat team, is not following the regulations and standards in Portland which are required by CBP and DHS.  A broad review of CBP and DHS government documents demonstrates that BORTAC, for whatever reasons, has no professional training in crowd control and in the de-escalation of violence by American citizens expressing their First Amendment rights.  As a result, some BORTAC members are acting in the same ways you would expect untrained and inexperienced police would respond.  When it comes to strategies and tactics to control crowds, lessons learned by those with much more experience than BORTAC should be seriously considered.
