MORE via Gateway Pundit>>>>>

When Coral Springs police officers arrived at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14 in the midst of the school shooting crisis, many officers were surprised to find not only that Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, the armed school resource officer, had not entered the building, but that three other Broward County Sheriff’s deputies were also outside the school and had not entered, Coral Springs sources tell CNN. The deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehicles, the sources said, and not one of them had gone into the school.

To be fair, you shouldn’t be pointing your gun unless you have a target.

Some people freeze. Training is supposed to overcome that tendency -- a buddy who was in the army said they constantly has to slap Iraqi soldiers into action when the bullets started flying.

Either way, by the time this is over I imagine this guy will wish he had run in there and been shot rather than face the shame he'll carry for the rest of his life.

... and why should we expect a “school resource officer” to fight like a battle-hardened Ranger?

What an effing coward.

If I had a gun and a vest I’d have died trying.

This thread by TheLastRefuge is a barn burner about how the LEO down there work: https://twitter.com/TheLastRefuge2/status/966854507744374784

It’s mind numbing. Makes you start to think about how to solve the situation for different results, e.g., home school, but how to overcome those people whose incomes would need a different setup.

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.

In the Parkland case, their security system had a dismal record concerning student safety and security that should be brought to public discussion particularly beginning with this school having a so called “gun free zone”.

It did have an officer who may be armed assigned to patrol the multi acre site in a golf cart, but bans guns from the rest of its internal security

Criticism arose when the officer assigned to this duty who was nearing retirement He was reported to arrive late and after Cruz had entered the building but stationed himself outside the large structure and had called for support. Two officers responded Which and did the same. He then left before Cruz did.

Those laissez faire attitudes strongly suggest examining records of reporting how the bureaucracy at this school handled student vs student, and student vs teacher (Cruz was accused of this) altercations, vandalism, thefts, and drug use. Which are bound to occur were being dealt with.To which a dramatic reduction in disciplinary incidents were reported after a visit by Obama occurred.

Because of these Ding Bat liberal policies it brings up another question. Just how safe and secure are those kids ? There’s a lot of krap that happens; Assaults, fights, thefts, books and items stolen, teachers accosted, kids intimidated....

Examine records reporting how student vs student, and student vs teacher altercations, vandalism, and thefts, which are bound to occur were being dealt with.

Because in an educational unit this size it’s pretty clear their security system failed . In a secure system Cruz would have never gotten inside.

Now that school board has decided to tear down the school which was probably raised by a funding referendums and the grounds house a memorial.

The dust is beginning to settle on this tragedy giving us a much clearer picture on the causes. Wholesale government failure on many levels yet the left wants the people to cede the government even more power by taking away our unalienable rights.

The founders made it difficult for us to enact kaws for a reason.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Strange that the Broward kids who actually communicate like adults and do not just fling angry words directed towards gun owners and Republicans are not getting any MSM attention. Yet they are among just a few acting like adults.

Knowing what we know now and what we have learned about inaction of the authorities for years, the preceding months and the during the murders, a room of family and friends of the victims the one guy responsible in the room with them and spent all their energy attacking those who had literally no role.

The current motto of police these days seems to be “I’m going home tonight after my shift” and it seems to matter more to them than innocent children’s lives.
