"Everything I was trained on mass casualty events says they did the wrong thing."[Florida Shooting]
Reporter in Miami for 7 News @WSVN ^ | 2-25-18 | Brian Entin

According to the first responder, everything about the response was completely botched.

“Everything I was trained on mass casualty events says they did the wrong thing,” he explained. “You don’t wait for the scene to be cleared. You go in immediately armed. Retrieve the victims. You can’t leave the victims laying there.”

The EMS worker believes that if he and other medical responders were allowed to enter the building as soon as they arrived, they could have saved more lives. He explained he was willing to risk his life to save the lives of others and was very frustrated over the situation.

As far as the cops who were at the school at the time of the shooting, what we’ve found out over the last few days is they did the wrong thing ON PURPOSE, because they were ORDERED to do so.

I heard some captain told them to secure the perimeter.

It would be interesting to know if this captain is a political promotee.

“Everything I was trained on mass casualty events says they did the wrong thing,” he explained. “You don’t wait for the scene to be cleared. You go in immediately armed. Retrieve the victims. You can’t leave the victims laying there.”

The old procedure was to wait for back-up, secure the scene, set-up a command post, etc., before going in to an active shooter situation.

But that has changed since Columbine. The lesson of Columbine is that the cops cannot just set up outside and wait it out, because while they are waiting, kids are literally dying.

So not only did the cops cower in place, they apparently prevented EMS workers from saving lives.

The only way I can think of how they could have possibly screwed this up worse would have been to go in and shoot the students themselves.

F’n a*holes.

Coward County got the response they voted for.

All this gross incompetence - and yet somehow this is the fault of the NRA?

All radio traffic to and from on-duty police is normally recorded.

It will be interesting to know if that is the case in the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

As soon as we first learned of Peterson the coward - I knew a “Stand Down” was ordered.

You may be on to something Ken.

Look at it this way. Lives WERE saved. Because Broward’s Cowards did NOT rush in all s’shootin’.

Broward County is firmly in the control of the orthodox progressives. Nothing they do would seem rational or familiar to most decent Americans. Their leaders would become emotionally outraged if ICE arrested and deported an illegal alien. If an illegal alien murdered or caused harm to an American citizen, not so much.

Isn’t Pam Bondi the AG for the state? I would expect her to do whatever is within her power to investigate and share their findings.

Yes, after Columbine LE rewrote the protocol. It's called active shooter and LE around the country are trained to go in armed and engage the shooter.

Except in Coward County, apparently.

Am I dreaming or has the CNN narrative of the Left created a backlash that will push them further into the ash can of history?

There’s absolutely no way that Broward County hasn’t had the revised, post-Columbine training. They can’t blame this on protocol.

Lots of trigger happy cops go rushing in shooting anything that moves.

I’m not a cop, nor military- but in a case where you have casualties waiting for rescue, don’t you first secure an area where you know the shooter(s) isn’t, and start working on victims there?

Wash, rinse, repeat as this will all happen again seemingly by design and or outright incompetence/neglect. The only varying factor will be the number of those unfortunate souls who will be murdered. The left as it stands will NEVER want to prevent these massacres. Dead babies via infanticide abortion and dead teens in High School, “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?”. Roll on Progressives!
