So there was an armed cop there but he FROZE.
Was he on the other side of the 45-acre campus, or was he just screwing off, or did he freeze and go the other way?
Hopefully, we will find out.
And they were reporting he was, “Elsewhere”? Ya knew this was bull s**t...Reeked bad.
Sheriff should have arrested him on one of the 39 visits to the kid’s house. That’s where the blame should fall.
Horrible if true. Law enforcement failure at every level.
Ah baloney. Shades of the Las Vegas “shooter”. Another stupid cover-up to cover the blue.
He was standing outside the building where the shooting was happening and there is reportedly video of this.
Barney Fife on duty and security video on a 20-minute delay.
The system fails keep piling up, but guns are evil.
How can the same idiot be visiting the POS 39 times? Surely others did the same.
Police failure, FBI failure, and yet they want to take away our means of self-protection... Is there anyone with a brain?!?
Addressed? My Dear Young Murderer, I think I know why we’re all here today.
The armed SRO declined to go into the building where the shooting was occurring. According to reports, they have video of him standing outside.
The shooting took what a few minutes..the guy could have been at the other end of the school...would he heard the shots if he was out side and a fire alarm going of..
think the sheriff is CYA..
He was a long time respurce cop....figured he didn’t have to do anything except be friends with the teens
I thought Scott Peterson was in jail already.....
Oh. I did read the article... it wasn't in there. I wish it had been mentioned.
Reading is good for you. The article says is was on a different place on campus.
Sounds like bs to me they are trying to shutdown Trumps plan.
Yes we don’t need no stinking guns as the police and GVT will protect us.
Was he armed or unarmed? If he was unarmed, what was he supposed to kill him with, a pencil?
The school is huge. He probably couldn’t find Cruz in time to save anyone. Remember, Cruz sneaked out with the rest of the students exiting.
