It’s high time America cut ties with Sheriff Israel.
He is now fighting to stop the release of video footage of the actions of his officers during the shooting.
The Miami Herald is calling him out:
It’s imperative that Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel release video recordings of what his deputies did, and didn’t do, outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while Nikolas Cruz was on a killing spree inside.
First, Israel himself has said that the public needs to know this information. He’s right, and he should accommodate the people on whose behalf he and his deputies work. This is an extraordinary case in which his department bears a large share of responsibility for Cruz getting as far as he did without interference. Warning signs about Cruz’s dangerous mental state had come to the department’s attention over at least a decade.
Instead, Israel refuses to release the recordings, arguing that they are exempt from the state’s public record laws. He says that they reveal security plans and are part of ongoing investigations.
Reveal security plans? Nonsense. By the sheriff’s own admission, whatever security plans the Broward Sheriff’s Office had in place failed horribly when Cruz killed 17 people and injured 15. On Feb. 22, Israel disclosed the shocking information that school resource officer Scot Peterson stood outside for four minutes while the Cruz was inside, firing an AR-15.
Israel said that Peterson should have charged inside, confronted the gunman and killed him. Tough talk for the cameras, but several other deputies apparently did not go into the building, either.
Yeah it’s almost like the cops just let it happen on purpose.
Peterson resigned and, speaking through his lawyer last week, defended his actions. He said that he was not a coward and that he thought the shots were coming from outside.
Last week, the Herald obtained documents that show a BSO captain ordered deputies to form a perimeter, possibly after the shooting was over, and not telling them to rush into the building. This contradicts what Israel said was the protocol.
No, what the videos would reveal are not “security plans,” as the sheriff claims. Rather they will reveal that there was probably confusion over the plan, or flawed communication of said plan.
It’s obvious that, whatever the plan, it was hopelessly bungled that awful afternoon of Feb. 14. What in the world could the release of the video recordings possibly compromise now?
The obvious thing that can be compromised is the employment of Sheriff Israel.
Though I am not certain that is even the thing here.
I am growing more and more suspicious that this is all part of a devious plot. All of the warnings that were ignored – systematically ignored – then the stand down outside the school, combined with the fact that there were students pulled from the school who had been groomst to be players in this political theater that the Jews rolled out after the shooting…
At some point, it becomes more likely that the cops let this happen on purpose as part of a Jew gun-grab plot.
I’m not really to just outright say “I think that’s what happened,” but we are at the point where this has gotten so stupid that it seems to me Occam’s Razor is about to tell us that’s what happened.
