DEVELOPING: Sources familiar with events surrounding the shooting tell @CBSMiami that when Coral Springs police arrived within minutes of the shooting call, they found not only the BSO School Resource Officer outside the school taking up a defensive position but at least three other @browardsheriff deputies who were waiting outside the school. The Coral Springs officers were told by BSO officers on the scene to wait, but the Coral Springs officers blew past them and immediately entered the building.
These events were first reported by @CNN. A spokeswoman for @browardsheriff and @ScottJIsrael confirms they are investigating if BSO deputies waited while kids were dying. Sheriff Israel earlier tried to dismiss these questions by saying when Coral Springs went in the shooter had already fled. But as one senior law enforcement source told me, at the time BSO was waiting outside they had no idea if the shooter was still inside. They needed to act and they didnt
You are correct.
You just hate cops so you believe the spin.
Man you said a mouthful. 20 years ago when my friends were cops, in Brooklyn and the Bronx, they went into monster scenes. It was their job. The one time these people were really really needed and they stand outside?
There ya go. They’re actually recruitment films or videos to show what a glamorous cool life it can be. Years ago they created films to actually depict real police work and what they do or did and they too were actually recruitment films. But they were based much closer to reality. Not broads running around in bikinis kicking all the men’s butts.
Thank God you are in no way shape or form related to any police force or the military. At least I hope. You want men to be cowards. Are you sure you are on the right website?
What part of that is that job don’t you get? Like my friends who died on nine-one-one. I guess all of the policemen and firemen should have just stayed out the building and stared at it
Times have changed, laws have changed.
I used to be a first responder until people started suing the folks that saved them for cracking a few ribs.
We need to return to common sense.
Contrast that with the middle aged, former NRA instructor in rural Texas who ran out of his house barefoot and solo to engage a mass shooter at the Baptist church next door.
To this uninformed observer, it would appear that if they believed Cruz had already fled, there would have been no reason at all for not entering the building.
IDK if it is cowardice. If one cop is outside and three rush in, the guy outside may well be a coward. But when four guys from the same PD stand outside, that sounds like orders to secure the perimeter and wait. That's why when Coral Springs officers show up, they are told by the BSO to stay outside. That makes more sense to me than concluding that Broward officers on the scene are all cowards. The outcome is the same either way, but if they stayed outside due to orders, well I think they need a new sheriff giving new orders about handling a life&death situation.
With an AR 15...
I agree. A pack of cowards led by a very shady character in my opinion.
Everyone who signed on to this "Broward County Collaborative Agreement on School Discipline" has blood on their hands. They were redefining and ignoring crime to get the arrest statistics down and get more federal and state grant money.
This picture sums up what’s wrong with police forces.
Get this - I’m not making this up -
The security cameras at the school have a twenty seven (27) minute delay. They are not “live” cameras.
Consequently law enforcement personnel were watching events that had happened a long time ago, that they thought were in real time.
OK. One might wonder - WHY would a security camera video feed have a half hour delay? Well - there are actually a few diferent reasons. ALL OF THEM CRIMINALLY NEGLIGENT. One of them - is to protect the precious stream of Eric Holder and his band of Merry Prankster inspired federal taxpayer dollars coming in for NOT arresting teen criminals in the school. That’s right - the half hour delay gives time for “authorities” to wipe evidence and deny deny deny, settle out of court, etc.
This is a little but too big for these assclowns to cover up. 17 dead kids. So now it’s come out swinging and blame everybody else.
I hope these people die in a fire. Soon.
You are putting words in my mouth.
Why are you believing CNN and that horrible Sheriff?
You have it -very- wrong. A cop works as safely as he can. He uses the best tactics and tools he has. But yes, he is expected to endure very high risk to do his job. You called it suicide and it was FAR from certain that going in would result in his death. Was it a serious risk? Yes.
There are three categories of people a cop should see. Innocents on top. Cops in the middle. And bad guys at the bottom. A cop is fully expected to risk his life sometimes to protect someone in an equal or higher category. Other cops and innocents, check. Bandits, no. Conversely, though it is deeply appreciated, no innocent can be expected to risk his life to save a cop.
If the safety of the cop was more important than anything else, even children being murdered, he would never go to work at all.
And again, it wasn’t suicide, it was extremely risky but that’s all and he had a very good chance of prevailing. That’s what men sometimes have to do.
Some dive bombers at the battle of Midway lost their bombs enroute to the fight due to defective arming switches. They made their bomb run just like all the bombers. They knew that the more planes in the air, the more fire they could draw away from the planes that still had a bomb.
Or the Wildcats at the battle of Samar, making strafing runs on a battleship.
Kids in a school, being shot one by one. Several men outside with guns. That’s far from suicide.
One of the big reasons. You bet.
The tape delay stinks to high heaven.
It requires an explanation.
Suicide would have been an untrained janitor running in with a broom for a weapon, as the cops stood around outside and watched.
