BREAKING: CNN Reports FOUR Broward County Deputies Waited Outside School As Children Were Massacred

    Publisher's note: This informational nugget was sent to me by Ben Shapiro, who represents the Daily Wire, and since this is one of the most topical news events, it should be published on BCN.

    On Friday, CNN issued a shock report finding that earlier reports regarding Broward County Sheriff's Deputy Scot Peterson - the armed school safety officer who apparently cowered outside the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while a mass shooter slaughtered 17 people inside - were accurate, but that Peterson wasn't the only officer waiting outside. According to CNN:

    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.

    So there were four armed officers outside the school. And none of them did anything, according to CNN. They instead waited for Coral Springs police to lead the charge inside.

    What's more, Coral Springs City Manager Mike Goodrum apparently chewed out Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel over that malfeasance on February 15 - more than a week ago. Which means that Israel knew full well that his own office had botched everything dramatically when he stood on stage with CNN's Jake Tapper and a crowd of angry parents and community members and blamed the National Rifle Association and Dana Loesch for his own horrible failure.

    Goodrum told CNN:

    Given the horrific events of that day emotions were running high and the sheriff and I had a heated moment the following evening. Sheriff Israel and I have spoken several times since and I can assure you that our departments have a good working relationship and the utmost respect for each other.

    This is repulsive. Israel should resign from office immediately. And CNN should be ashamed of itself for having allowed this self-aggrandizing political grandstander to shift blame onto people who had nothing to do with the shootings.

You still have your rapier wit, and all your friendships.

Don't worry, I have patience. It is about the only thing left that has not deteriorated.

I have a reply to this. I just don't have the energy to write it right now.

My old high school has been repurposed as lofts which rent for between $1500 and $2600 per month. The building was built in the 1920s and closed as a school in in 1986 before it was reborn as a preservation-minded housing complex in 1998. The building and location contain many memories for me both good and bad. None were traumatic other than a couple of suspensions and failing Algebra twice. But regardless if they converted it to lofts or tore it down like we do everything else in Atlanta and built an office building, the location will always hold a special memory for me. Here is a tour from the Loft Website.

Just like the Guns, the building itself is not where the relevance lies. It lies in the hearts and minds of everyone who has a memory of that place. The cost to repurpose the school in Florida as anything other than a school will not change the memory of that location. It could well be used to provide proper counseling to those students.

Somewhere in everyone's life they must confront reality. My opinion is that the earlier one does that the better. Harsh as it may seem, it has worked throughout our history and the history of the world. Not recognizing reality has been responsible for untold tragedies that could have been prevented or avoided.

I agree on not tearing down the building. They might feel better if they felt safer.

While my comment may seem callus, I am trying to point out the fallacy of closing the barn door after the horse has escaped. I'll await more facts regarding the Deputy's actions or lack thereof.

I am not suggesting ignoring the trauma. What I am suggesting is individual student therapy with techniques and professional help that has proven to help in other trauma situations. Tearing down the building, trying to remove any physical reminder of the incident and group "Kum ba yahs" will not help. I don't think media exploitation of the students will help either. They must confront the reality of what happened and begin to deal with it as soon as possible. Fermentation and aging may work with distilled spirits but is does not work with traumatic events.

They must learn to process and channel the traumatic memories into a positive framework.

This Broward County Sheriff shamelessly operates on a plane of hypocrisy that is grand in scale.

There was once a long standing tradition: Cowards were lined up and shot in disgrace.

The practice began to stop in World War II. In my recollection, there were no executions for cowardice in the Korean War, but in the Vietnam War, officers were occasionally fragged for a myriad of supposed violations.

The American Armed forces today are an extremely brave bunch, very well trained. Training may be the key.

I will bet real money that not one of the Broward Cowards were former U.S. military.

Regarding B.T.'s meme, and TMc's cowardice claim, this video may exemplify both form America's current top intellectual wienie:

Headlines from Miami Herald:

"How will Douglas High students go back to class? There’s now a plan in place."
"The district has also announced a “voluntary campus orientation” with a variety of support services available for students and their families on Sunday, Feb. 25 from 2 to 5 p.m."

I am just guessing there will be armed guards at the Voluntary Campus Orientation.

As much as I dislike memes, I occasionally find one that is worthy of posting. I used to just throw it on the Occupy Democrats FB page and never go back to see comments, but then I had several friends who apparently follow ODFB send me nasty emails accusing me of being a some sort of Neanderthal. I would have thought they knew that by just being my friend. So far only one defriended me and she was an old girl friend that I personally defriended 50 years ago. She could not take a joke then and apparently can't take one now.

The Durham police stood by while CSA statue was destroyed. Then the lawyers were cowards dismissing the case.

Am I coining this one ? It just hit me this morning regarding the cowering Broward County deputies.

It simply is just too easy: The Broward Cowards.
