MUST WATCH VIDEO: Coast Guard Boards Submarine, Bangs Open With Fists Until Drug Runners Surrender
In a true display of American heroism and grit, a Coast Guardsman’s camera captured a team leaping onto a drug running submarine and brutally pounding on the hatch until the drug runners open it and immediately surrender.
The Coast Guard can be heard, in Spanish, informing the vessel that it is in waters belonging to the United States, then demanding that the vessel immediately identify itself.
The guardsman repeatedly demands identification as the vessel continues to sail into the United States at the surface of the water, screaming “Alto tu barco ahora”, register your boat now, with no response from the vessel.
After ordering the vessel to identify itself eight times in about 20 seconds, the guardsman is heard saying “That’s gonna be hard to get on” before the Coast Guard boat moves into position to board.
Once the Coast Guard boat is in position, at least two guardsmen leap onto the submarine, and begin pounding on the hatch with their fists while trying to open it from the outside, waves crashing into them all the while.
After only seconds of pounding, the drug runners open the hatch with their hands in the air, surrendering the the Coast Guard. It was reported by Barstool Sports that the vessel was loaded with cocaine.

These type of heroism and testosterone filled behavior prove the Coast Guard does not get enough respect. Earlier this year, Democrats sought to block Coast Guard funding during the government shutdown, likely knowing this is the type of risks the guardsmen take on a daily basis.
Last year, Big League Politics reported that the Coast Guard seized a whopping $721 million in cocaine, more than 42,000 pounds, and secured it in San Fransisco.
Crewmembers of Coast Guard Cutter Stratton pulled into port at San Diego Thursday with more than $721 million worth of cocaine, more than 47,000 pounds, from 23 interdictions in the eastern Pacific Ocean off the coast of Central and South America.
“The threat of transnational organized crime is a danger no one ship, agency, country or person can address alone,” said Vice Adm. Fred M. Midgette, the commander of the Coast Guard’s Pacific Area.
“We stand alongside our interagency and international partners resolved in a shared purpose to protect those harmed by these dangerous drugs and bring the criminals who smuggle them to justice,” the admiral said.
The Coast Guard, along with Border Patrol, are truly the last line of defense when it comes to drugs, weapons, and violence entering the United States from Central and South America.
