The school should have called the resource officer to arrest him rather than transfer him to another school. But Broward no longer hass students arrested because they want to protect minorities.
“Beginning in 2013, Broward stopped referring students to police for about a dozen infractions ranging from alcohol and drug use to bullying, harassment and assault. Instead, students who get in trouble for those infractions are offered an alternative program that emphasizes counseling, conflict resolution skills and referral to community social service agencies.”
Authority or not, the cops can’t arrest people whose crimes aren’t reported to them. By mutual agreement, the school wasn’t reporting crimes committed on campus.
How many times did the cops respond to the Cruz residence over the years? Don’t worry- everybody will be sued equally.
