Border official points gun at Boy Scout

•, Marcus McIntosh

About 10 days into the trip, an innocent action by one of the nearly two dozen Scouts at the Canadian border into Alaska set off a chain of events that lead to a U.S. border official pointing a gun at a scout's head.

Boy Scout Troop 111 Leader Jim Fox spelled out what happened to him and the Mid-Iowa Boy Scout Troop 111 as four van-loads of Scouts and adult volunteers tried to drive from Canada into Alaska.

Fox said one of the Scouts took a picture of a border official, which spurred agents to detain everyone in that van and search them and their belongings.

Border Patrol Agent Pulls Gun on Boy Scout after Detaining them for Photography

After detaining a van of Boy Scouts for taking pictures at a checkpoint, threatening to throw them in prison for ten years on a fabricated felony, a United States Border Patrol Agent whipped out his gun and aimed it at one of the boys, just to let him know he meant business.

But we all can breathe easy because a Boy Scout leader has assured us the boys have since learned their lesson.
