Hmm. The Army is going to hire mall cops to protect it?
From the Hill:
The Army will look at how to better secure its recruiting centers, the Army chief said Friday, a day after a lone-wolf shooter killed four Marines at a reserve center in Chattanooga.
"We will conduct an assessment once we get more information on what happened and we'll see if there's anything else we need to do in order to better secure our young men and women who are serving," Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno told Pentagon reporters Friday.
On Thursday afternoon, authorities say, Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, a 24-year-old U.S. citizen originally from Kuwait, opened fire at a Navy recruitment center before driving to a Naval and Marine Corps reserve center a few miles away and opening fire again, killing four Marines.
Odierno said Army recruiters, like Navy and Marine recruiters, are not armed. He said before considering it, the Army will have to figure out what happened and decide if that will make a difference.Gee, general, have you thought about maybe ARMING THE SOLDIERS?
Odierno is a Democratic General, more worried about sucking up to Chicken Hawks like Barack Obama and Joe Biden -- boys who send others into war without ever having worn the uniform -- than protecting his soldiers.
