David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland, Florida high school shooting, told Morning Joe on Monday that he thinks Gov. Rick Scott should be held accountable for the failure of three sheriffs deputies to confront the gunman.
Law enforcement sources confirmed to news outlets that three deputies from the Broward County Sheriffs Office remained outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High as the shooter opened fire, eventually killing 17 people.
Hogg, appearing on MSNBCs Morning Joe, said the news is raising concern in his community, before accusing elected officials of attempting the blame the shooting on bureaucracy.
Theyre in charge of them, Hogg said of those elected officials. This is their fault.
They should have been regulating them, he continued. Im not going to allow them to pressure these people because at the end of the day its their fault. These elected officials are the boss of these sheriff personnel and just like the president is the boss of the FBI, Governor Rick Scott is essentially the boss of Scott Israel, the sheriff, and as such he should be held accountable.
He cant just blame this on the bureaucracy and expect to get re-elected. Hogg went on to praise high school football coach Aaron Feis, who died shielding students from the gunman, unlike those cowardly Broward County Sheriff officials.
Sadly, these are a few individuals that did not conduct their job correctly, but I dont think its right that Governor Rick Scott is trying to blame this on the bureaucracy in an effort to get reelected.
Isn’t it time for him to go back to class?
Has this little punk demanded that local and federal law enforcement be held accountable for all the balls they dropped on this shooter?
This little prick doesn’t understand the concept of accountability.
obviously a future pissant politician.
I wonder which party??????
This kid is being propped up as the dem’s Goebbels....
Isn’t county sheriff an elected office in Broward County, like everywhere else? If so, how is Scott his “boss”?
“Hogg, appearing on MSNBCs Morning Joe”
Stopped reading right there.
Exactly, allow the stupid little sh*thead sock puppet to continue jabbering — it’s all nonsense and makes his Communist Regressive handlers look bad.
What is his connection to the Broward Sheriff, and why is Hogg protecting him?
So, Rick Scott is supposed to be intimately aware of the goings-on in Broward County? I would bet if Rick Scott was aware of the calls to the FBI and the sheriff’s office, this clown would have been disarmed and would have been under psychiatric observation.
This little kid is only one of approximately 3,000 “survivors” of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
And his high school education has apparently been greatly lacking if he doesn’t know the sheriff is also an elected official.
What he is really saying is that Republicans ought to be held accountable for what Democrats have done. LOL.
'Fraid you'll get a bad mark...ah.
Bad spokesperson for students, needs to get back to school. Maybe send truancy officer after him.
In Florida, the office of Sheriff is an elected position. The governor of the state has no control whatsoever on how a particular sheriff’s office is run.
He’s working his way up to “it was Trump’s fault”.
I wonder which $oros-funded group is writing this punks scripts?
Strange how he can take a leave of absence from his senior year to go on the Leftist Talking Points tour. And, how he was ready to perform on day one. No time to grieve for his classmates, school employee or community.
That’s right! Rick Scott is the boss. He should fire them.
Clearly the school is doing a poor job of teaching American history and government. The sheriff is elected by the citizens of Broward County, not the Governor. He reports to the citizens. He is not a state employee.
Our education system is failing students and society by not teaching them our country’s history and government.
