ICYMI: Cowards With Guns and Badges Stood By

2/23/18 CNN:
Information about ways the Broward County Sheriff's Office didn't sufficiently handle the shooter both before and during the incident started coming out in full force on Thursday, when Broward County Sheriff Israel announced that video showed Deputy Peterson outside the building where students were being shot for "upwards of four minutes."
"What I saw was a deputy arrive ... take up a position and he never went in," Israel said at a news conference. Israel said Peterson should have "went in. Addressed the killer. Killed the killer." Peterson was suspended without pay, after which he resigned.
County Superintendent Robert Runcie said, "I'm in shock and I'm outraged to no end that he could have made a difference in all this. It's really disturbing that we had a law enforcement individual there specifically for this reason, and he did not engage. He did not do his job. It's one of the most unbelievable things I've ever heard."
To both these cowards, go watch 15:17 to Paris and see how decent men deal with evil.

  1. I hate to say this Police give a good talk on how they are the best trained and the best skilled in firearms. Some times they truly live up to their talk, as in the case of the North Hollywood shootout. Then however is the LA Riot where the entire LAPD withdrew. For all they're training they are still human beings, not robots. They can freeze and panic like the rest of us. To me thats why the argument that only the police should be armed fails. Back in the War of 1812 the British general Brock mixed his experienced combat veterans in to the units of green troops. Thus when the fighting began and the greens began to panic they would then see the old man next to them either standing his ground or moving forward. American Generals didn't do this and thus had whole units suddenly break and run, as they said in that time, at the first whiff of powder. I would have expected combat veterans to go in, like my old JROTC instructors (both Vietnam vets).
