We previously reported that a Deputy did not go into the Parkland High School during the shooting last week. He stood outside the entire time that Nikolas Cruz murdered 17 people.
Well, it gets worse…Now we find out that three more Sheriff’s Deputies also waited outside…Katie Pavlich just tweeted exactly what we’re all thinking…
Not just one armed sheriff’s deputy failed to go into the school to engage the assailant, but THREE others failed as well. Pistols drawn, hiding behind cars outside of the school while students were slaughtered. My god. https://t.co/arGkHMQFij

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.
CORAL SPRINGS POLICE OFFICERS ENTERED FIRST:
With direction from the Broward deputies who were outside, Coral Springs police soon entered the building where the shooter was. New Broward County Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene, and two of those deputies and an officer from Sunrise, Florida, joined the Coral Springs police as they went into the building.
THE CORAL SPRINGS PD WAS FUMING THAT THE BROWARD DEPUTIES WAITED OUTSIDE:
Local 10 reports:
While the Broward Sheriff’s Office has handled the forensic investigation into the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting last week, it was another police agency’s officers that were the first to rush into the building to save those who had been shot.
About 130 cops from the Coral Springs Police Department responded to the shooting at the school, which borders the city and is about three miles from the station, Police Chief Anthony Pustizzi told Local 10 News in an exclusive interview.
Roughly 40 of those officers rushed into the building, where 23 victims were carried out to medics. Of those victims, 20 survived, the chief said. […]
“I’ve been a police officer for 30 years,” Pustizzi said at a press conference following the interview. “You know, humans aren’t meant to see this kind of tragedy, but the officers that went in there, the dispatchers that heard it, the firemen that treated the people — you know, there’s obviously a lot of support that needs to be given to them, as well.”
On top of failing to give proper credit to Coral Springs Police, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is currently investigating why a school resource officer failed to act during the shooting.
THIS IS UNREAL! Remember that the Broward County Sheriff was asked what the police officers are to do when engaged in something like this. He said they go in and “kill the killer”.
