Ahhh the sacrificial lambs to the g-d of liberal ideas.
Always nice (and sickening) to see our tax dollars being swindled.
Sounds like a well run sheriff office. Must be one heck of a sheriff to inspire his men to take such inaction. /s
This thing is the NRA’s fault how???
Israel is going to have to fire himself.
If he truly wants to end the graft and corruption in the BCSO.

When President Trump fairly called out the armed deputy as a coward, he was echoing the Sheriff who said the man had an absolute duty to enter the school and attack the shooter. The deputy failed at probably the most critical moment in his law enforcement career and he will never have a chance to redeem himself.
Combat veterans can relate to the myriad of reactions that impacted the guard when he heard the gunshots. Soldiers need to be shot at a lot of times before they can trust their reactions, if that ever happens. In every firefight they are assaulted by the options of flee, freeze, or fight and hope their training overcomes any bad impulses. Read Steven Cranes book The Red Badge of Courage and you can see how one Union Army private dealt with the issue. He was able to redeem himself, but again the guard will never have the opportunity, and will never know whether cowardliness is part of his character.
In my little part of war, I served as the officer in charge of our ship when general quarters sounded. I was onboard for nineteen months and served through three extended Vietnam deployments. I was not a religious man, but whenever the alarm sounded I always prayed, Oh God, please help me do something intelligent in the next 60 seconds. Thank the good Lord I dont have to deal with catastrophic failure for my prior actions.
Cop who didn't enter school during Florida shooting resigns, has home guarded, is slammed as 'coward' by Trump http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/02/23/police-officers-guard-home-deputy-assigned-to-florida-hs-who-never-went-in-during-shooting-report.html
Think about it. The only thing that could have stopped the shooter was if he had failed to wear his seatbelt. The brave deputies would have beat the shiite out of Cruz for that. After all seatbelt stops are safe and pay the county’s bills.
So, just was the actual problem?
Lack of initiative re the deputies?
Over-control by superiors...?
Who can say?/be believed?
God an entire district of freaks,no wonder it happened there.
(hat tip responsibility2nd)
Cops were under standing orders to ignore teen criminal activity at the Broward school. So that the school could get federal funding, they were able to fudge crime statistics that heavily exposed Black/Hispanic crimes in order to falsely claim juvenile delinquency was down 60%!
The level of corruption is so intense - I would not be surprised if the cop on duty was under orders to STAND DOWN while children were being murdered. Was he a coward during those 4 minutes he stood outside while Cruz was firing? Or did Sheriff Israel direct him to set up a perimeter?
Lets ask Broward resident Cong Debbie W/S.
CONGRESS: Capitol Switchboard 1-866-220-0044
U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement on the Broward County school shooting:
As a Broward County resident for nearly 30 years and an elected official for most of that time, my heart breaks for the victims, their families, friends, and loved ones. As a parent of a Broward County high school student, and as someone with friends whose children attend Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, it is gut wrenching that another senseless school shooting has occurred, this time in our community.
In the United States of America, it is simply unacceptable that we allow children to run for their lives with their backpacks on. Unacceptable that we allow parents to fear for the worst while they wait to hear back from their kids, and unacceptable that we allow survivors of school shootings to live with a trauma that can never be explained away.
I stand with my community and our families and ask all Americans to keep the parents, siblings, spouses and loved ones in their prayers this evening. No American anywhere should have to feel the pain that Broward County feels today, and too many communities have felt across our country countless times before. We must do something about this senseless epidemic of gun violence and we must do it now.
Liz to All
Seventeen students died for the insane Broward/State agreement that manipulated crime statistics to get govt grants.. This is the story the public needs to see
INSTITUTIONAL WELFARE: Broward County Colluded with state officials; the cabal Ignored Crimes Committed By Students In Order To Get Federal Grants
Broward County participated in hiding and excusing student arrests for years The school system administrators wanted to manipulate their Black/Hispanic crime statistics so as not to appear racist and to gain state and federal grant money.................
REALITY CHECK So wheres the FLA polsDebbie W/S and The Cowgirl Congressperson?
About criminals using students, and planning crimes, AFTER Broward arrest quotas were met?

Any bets if these clowns are products of the Broward Dim Spoils System?
The rat-faced sheriff is so corrupted that he even believes his own foolish nonsense.
Cruz was going to the very same school where Israel’s own 3 sons had attended.
Had Cruz shot it up last year, the sheriff could had lost his own child.
Progressive liberals like their policies at the detriment of their own flesh & blood.
What is that?
NEED TO KNOW:
<><> Was Scott Petersons cop salary financed wholly or partly with federal grants Broward received?
<><> Did Peterson receive bonuses, unearned time toward his pension, or other emoluments that consisted of tax dollars?
<><> Who has possession of Scott Petersons work schedule and job description?
<><> Did Scott Petersons reports about his official activities appear in Browards applications for federal grants?
<><> Did Scott Peterson ever sign off on applications for federal funds?
<><> where are Scott Petersons reports about crime activity in the school district?
<><> where are Scott Petersons reports on the ethnic makeup of perpetrators of school crimes?
Wanna bet one these suspended officers turns on the pols and spills the beans?
Good post. Armed with only a pistol against an assailant with a rifle, I would also have some fear as to the outcome, but I agree as a salaried deputy, its a risk that comes with the job, and he should have acted courageously. Sadly the courts have ruled that cops really have no duty to protect. If thats the case, what good are they?
The FL Gov Rick Scott wants to disarm the teachers and anyone under 21 too now .
They can wait to be shot before these Barney Fifes arrive .
