I guarantee you if I was there with my 45 and NO vest I would have engaged that son of a Bitch! You don’t have to stand out in the open to do it!
To scare misbehaving kids
CNN talking point.
Well, the geography teacher couldn't have done any worse than the SRO or the three cowards hiding outside behind their car.
The arriving officers from Coral Gables (?) were shocked at their behavior and entered the building to defend/lend aid to the unarmed students as best they could .
Because he was a sheriff’s deputy. No one expected him to fight like a “battled hardened ranger”. We just don’t expect him to do nothing.
That’s a very good question. There definitely would be recordings, but with today’s often encrypted police radios there may not be any outside of the Sheriff’s control. It would be very interesting to know how many “play by play” reports were filed by the cowardly deputy and his pals, and what if any instructions they were given by their superiors. You’d think with an active shooter situation the protocol would have been to get a senior officer on the radio right away.
The odd thing is that Peterson has already resigned, which would seem less likely if he had been ordered to hold back.
I think you mean geometry teacher, but I get your point.
He didn’t do nothing, he secured the perimeter
This was not a rent a cop. This was supposedly a trained person. I bet he was hell on wheels about hunting parents down and harassing them if they dared to pull their kids and put them in another school.
(Bitter personal experience)
We don’t know if the geography teacher with the .38 and no vest would have done better. But he would have tried. Not stood at the door like Scott Peterson waiting for three other Browder County deputies to bring donuts and coffee.
The geography teacher certainly couldn't have done it any worse.
Should the teacher be kept from protecting students because he/she might not do a better job than the cop cowering outside? At a minimum, the teacher would be motivated by self-protection rather than pension-protection.
How do we know the geography teacher with the .38 and no vest would do it better?
The point is, will the shooter even take the chance if he knows that teachers are armed? Your leftist view has been noted however.
Yea the perimeter was him. “I be perimeter.” Good job coward of the county. Oh wait a minute the sheriff has that title, “Coward of the County”
If he even felt any sort of emotion for the kids he
governed served, he might have gone in... but oh well.
An actual deputy should have been all that’s necessary to go after a 21 non-hardened/trained anything nut case.
Clearly this guys primary function in local law enforcement was to collect a paycheck.
From all the reports I have read Broward county deputies disgraced themselves with total cowardly behavior. BCSD is a department of substantial size and resources yet a smaller community police department, Coral Springs makes immediate entry upon arrival.
BCSD is in full CYA mode.
How could he do worse?
The Coward of Broward was perfectly safe cowering well away from the shooter.
A geography teacher in the building being shot at could scarcely show less resolve. Even if she froze (and a she-bear protecting cubs is unlikely to fold) the history teacher, the math teacher, the art teacher, and the ESL teachers are unlikely to ALL freeze!
The last failure in a long list.
Only 8 months until Election Day.
The communists in the press and DC are going to make sure they win back the House and impeach Trump.
That is their main goal.
Trump governs like a man scared of impeachment.
Thought he was going to take out the trash.
He is trying to play by the rules.
That’s a recipe for disaster.
Because he was a sworn deputy, with 20+ years of law enforcement experience.
