The sheriff should resign for starters.
Potential shooters need to know that the possibility of opposition exists - from multiple possible sources. That alone will stop many of these attacks.
If you haven’t got the guts to use a weapon to protect helpless kids, you shouldn’t have one. Ever.
Went looking for recordings of radio traffic (which does seem to exist but I haven’t found it yet) - and mostly found more excuses about how the radio system was overloaded and first responders weren’t able to communicate.
What a bunch of BS, after small towns and counties all over the country were forced to update to trunked digital radio systems after 9-11 to solve this exact problem! What’s the Broward Sheriff’s excuse for that?
Cops didn’t know the video was delayed by 20 minutes. They must all be incompetent, from the Sheriff on down. Fire him and then clean house and put someone in who can train LEOs to do their jobs.
The Coward of Coward County.
Well you fool that has not been proposed
Take your trolling somewhere else
It would not take a battle hardened ranger to ease in the door of that school with a 12 gauge shotgun and carefully move up to a point where he could get a shot at that kid. Like when he was reloading. You don’t come back from a load of 00 buck shot.
That would be a geometry teacher. Close enough.
We conservatives in many cases have actually helped Trump, we have actually made in harder - Alabama!
And please no excuses about the lack of support from McConnell, the MSM war on him and the “accusers”. All GOP’ers had to do was turn out an vote! Keeping that seat was more important then the flaws of Moore (Which apparently were considerable given the end result!) or of Strange (again his flaws unimportant compared to keeping the seat!)
You are a shame to Georgia
Patton would bit-h slap some deputies.
How do we know the geography teacher with the .38 and no vest would do it better?

The same way I know that my chances of survival are better with a 5 shot pistol or even a two shot derringer when ‘approached’ by 6 ‘teenagers’ with mayhem in their mind.
Chances are pretty good they will scramble when first seeing your weapon which allows you to leave the area.
My 5 shot pistol is a damn site better than a cell phone and cops 3 blocks away or a TShirt with a ‘no guns symbol’.
Maybe they may even see the sign and back off...
If a shooter is right outside your classroom would you rather have a chance or no chance?
The teacher couldn’t do worse even if he was only trying to protect himself.
I do think teachers develop a bond with their students though and would try to protect them.
They do the same type of jobs the other officers do when school is not in session.
And you don't get to be a SRO without some years on the job.
Nice attempt to save him but sorry. You missed.
He retired before it became known there were other deputies who waited outside. He is probably better off slinking away with his pension intact than trying to defend his actions from Sheriff Israel who tried to scapegoat him.
Are the others eligible for retirement benefits? Is Sheriff Israel going to hang them out to dry, too?
Because the 32 year law enforcement officer who trains every month does not need to be a combat hardened Ranger. There were no artillery, no rockets, no armies, no land mines and there was only 1 teenage enemy opponent who clearly had little or no training. In fact, if the SRO had been doing their job, the teenage suspect, who'd been thrown out of the same school, would have never made it onto the school campus in the first place.
Apparently an entire platoon of unknown mental cases, who didn't attend the school, could have willy nillie walk into campus, right past the cop and shot everyone on campus.
We SHOULD expect him to do the job he is being paid for....
I would guess that he thought it was a plum do nothing assignment he could play at until he retired, now he is facing ridicule, at the least, from almost everyone that recognizes him and I can't imagine how he can live with himself afterwards. I honestly believe that if it was me, suicide would be in my very near future.
