Senior Brandon Huff rushed to the building where the shooting was taking place when he found out his girlfriend was inside.
She texted me, There is a shooter in the room. I love you, so I freaked out. I dropped everything in my hands, Huff said. [ ]
The school resource officer was behind a stairwell wall, just standing there, and he had his gun drawn, and he was just pointing it at the building, Huff said. Shots started going off inside, and you could hear them going off over and over again. [ ]
He was pointing his gun at nothing. He was pointing his gun just at the building with kids in it, and he was just talking on the radio, and he never did anything for four minutes, Huff said. [ ]
Hes the only one with a gun, Huff said. Hes wearing a bullet proof vest, he has all that while school security guards, coaches were running in shielding kids Coach Feis, Hixon were running in, shielding kids from bullets and losing their lives while he did nothing.

When Coral Springs police officers arrived at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14 in the midst of the school shooting crisis, many officers were surprised to find not only that Broward County Sheriffs Deputy Scot Peterson, the armed school resource officer, had not entered the building, but that three other Broward County Sheriffs deputies were also outside the school and had not entered, Coral Springs sources tell CNN. The deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehicles, the sources said, and not one of them had gone into the school.
To be fair, you shouldn’t be pointing your gun unless you have a target.
How do we know the geography teacher with the .38 and no vest would do it better?
Either way, by the time this is over I imagine this guy will wish he had run in there and been shot rather than face the shame he'll carry for the rest of his life.
This story is enraging on many levels.
Was this school resource officer dude basically useless in a crisis situation? Was he a real cop or a “mall cop” security guard type dude?
What about the deputies? They just arrive and hang out outside?
I sure hope there is more to the story, which hopefully comes out. Because from what we’ve heard, it sounds like a massive failure on the part of police which contributed largely to this massacre.
... and why should we expect a “school resource officer” to fight like a battle-hardened Ranger?
Normal democrat behavior.
Broward county.....nuff said
Makes you wonder how many more of them are out there while they write you a ticket.
He was a full Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy who was assigned to that school.
Clearly chickens#it is the expectation of the Broward sheriff, who leads by example.
I don’t expect him to fight like a Ranger, I expect him to do the job he’s paid for and confront the threat that he is armed specifically to confront.
What the ****** hell? You people are EXCUSING this coward’s behavior? You crouch behind a stairwell and do NOTHING while some freak kills unarmed children inside the building?
WHAT THE ****** HELL?
Those cowards should be shamed for the rest of their lives.
What an effing coward.
If I had a gun and a vest Id have died trying.
How long will it be before the deputies start talking about being ordered to stand down? They can use the “I was just following orders” defense. I wonder if there are recordings of the radio chatter.
This thread by TheLastRefuge is a barn burner about how the LEO down there work: https://twitter.com/TheLastRefuge2/status/966854507744374784
It’s mind numbing. Makes you start to think about how to solve the situation for different results, e.g., home school, but how to overcome those people whose incomes would need a different setup.
“... and why should we expect a school resource officer to fight like a battle-hardened Ranger?”
Then why does he have a gun?
A geography teacher would at least understand the principle of angles and pointing.
