Why are we still buying the NRA’s crap that one good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun?
There were 4 supposed good guys with guns at the school. Four armed officers and years of warnings did nothing to stop Nikolas Cruz from killing 17 people at a high school. Not one but four sheriff’s deputies hid behind cars instead of storming Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS in Parkland, Fla., during Wednesday’s school shooting, police claimed Friday, as newly released records revealed the Broward County Sheriff’s Office had received at least 18 calls about the troubled teen over the past decade.
Sources from Coral Springs, Fla., Police Department report that when its officers arrived on the scene Wednesday, they were shocked to find three Broward County Sheriff’s deputies behind their cars with weapons drawn. The school’s armed resource officer, Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, was also outside. He resigned on Thursday after his failure to act was publicly revealed. The Coral Springs cops entered the building to engage the shooter on their own, before other Broward County deputies arrived, two of whom joined the police inside, the sources said.
Meanwhile the sheriff, dressed in a 4-star David Clarke Spring collection piece, is seen hugging any microphone he can find to slander his employees. Deputies reflect the leadership at the top.
