A deputy assigned to secure Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida has been suspended after he was spotted taking a nap in his car.
The school, site of a shooting that left 17 dead last month, has upped its security as students and staff return to campus and the deputy believed to be asleep, Moises Carotti, was part of that effort. A Broward County Sheriff Department sergeant reportedly found the deputy sleeping in his patrol car around 5 p.m. Tuesday outside of the 1200 building, site of the murders. Carotti was suspended with pay, pending an internal affairs investigation.
The news came the same week that two Stoneman students were arrested after they were found with knives, a third after making what were taken as threats on social media, and the brother of Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz taken into custody while trespassing on campus. The brother arrested, Zachary, reportedly admired the elder Cruzs popularity which he said helped with how many girls hes capable of attracting after the mass shooting.
Of all the schools in America, you would think this would be the safest one right now, said U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. This is so outrageous its almost impossible to believe.

The Deputy in question and Sheriff Israel need to be summarily fired.
Coward County Sheriff Scott Israel will probably be re-elected.
This POS should be tried for treason and gross negligence
No big deal, sleepy will keep his government pension...
It doesn’t say whether or not he was suspended with pay.
“Paid leave” == “Paid Vacation”
It’s in the 2nd paragraph.
“Carotti was suspended with pay, pending an internal affairs investigation.”
That's not "accused" ... that's FIRED !
I guess I’m getting blind.
Who will save the children...from themselves?
Public Schools = GOVERNMENT Schools = Death TRAPS!
They were dumb enough to vote for him in the first place.
Just getting over spring break with a little siesta.
The gross incompetence of the school and law enforcement lead to the murder of innocent children and not one liberal cares about that reality thus it will keep on happening.
Sleeping on the job weeks after a deadly shooting of schoolkids and the punishment is PAID VACATION?
