Crack shots *inside* Walter Reed AMC, not outside

So at the premier treatment facility for injured soldiers, the security guards apparently know little more about marksmanship than where the trigger is.

I'm sure this is somehow Bush's fault.


Guard shoots at colleague outside Walter Reed hospital

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A security guard at Walter Reed Army Medical Center opened fire at another guard Wednesday outside a busy entrance to the hospital, police said. No one was injured.

The guards had been arguing at about 8:30 a.m. when one of them fired as many as 10 shots, Lt. Jimmie Riley said.

The other guard, who was not hit, ran to a nearby house to call police, Riley said. The guard who fired the shots was taken into custody.

"We're very fortunate," Riley said. "It could've been tragic."

The guards are employed by a private security firm, which is under contract to Walter Reed.

Police did not immediately release the identities of the guards.

The hospital in Washington is the Army's premier center for treating injured soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

One can see the level of corruption in a police department full of academy trained officers. But private security firms are that times 3. When private security firms are employed, the worker pool is generally composed of wanna-be cops with little or no training who are unemployable for some reason or the other by police departments. So, rent-a-cops are a disaster waiting to happen.
