Departmental Cowardice – Stunning Police Reports Highlight Broward County Sheriff Officers Hiding Behind Cars, Trees During Parkland School Shooting…

Despite multiple court maneuvers by officials within Broward County Florida, details of the severity of Broward County Sheriff’s Office cowardice are beginning to surface. There were ‘several’ Broward County sheriff officers immediately on the scene during the Parkland school shooting, and none of them attempted to enter the school and engage the shooter.

Reports written by responding Coral Springs police officers (full pdf below) highlight how Broward sheriff officers were cowering behind trees and vehicles and telling the arriving CSPD units where the shooter was located.

The Broward deputies were the first to arrive on scene at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. According to the reports, when Coral Springs police arrived to assist they found the deputies cowering behind their cars and a nearby tree. A report from Coral Springs Officer Bryan Wilkins details how he arrived at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School within minutes of the active shooter alert — only to find Broward County Sheriff’s Officers hadn’t entered the school, but were instead taking cover.

“I saw approximately four Broward County Sheriff’s Office vehicles parked in the west bound lane with their personnel taking up exterior positions behind their vehicles,” Wilkins wrote. “I drove up just west of the campus building 1200, exited my vehicle, grabbed my AR-15 rifle and donned on my tactical/medical gear. As I was advancing on foot through the chain-link fence, I was advised by an unknown BSO Deputy taking cover behind a tree, ‘he is on the third floor.'”

Here’s some of the reports:

    Yeaaaaaaah, and what’s our alternative to the 2nd Amendment again?

    When seconds count, BCSD is only 10 minutes away from hiding fairly near your house.

      And the gun control crowd want us (but not them, safe within their walled communities and protected by armed security) to be protected from violent criminals by the likes of ‘Broward’s Finest?” These are the kind of police they want us to trust with our lives, once we have been disarmed because of ‘gun violence’? Would David Hogg trust them to defend his life from a homicidal maniac? Are they nuts, or just completely crazy?

      these are the kind of public servants that will take the taxpayer funded security apparatus (guns, tac gear, cars, ammo, surveillance equipment) throw it in the trunk and flee the scene to go protect their own. They’ll use the stuff you paid for and abandon you! They always seem to buy the nicest stuff too when spending your money.

    Ok. Probably said already, but on the run…

    “He’s on the Third Floor.”

    So, Coward County Sheriff Deputies already knew the number, gender, and location of the shooter.

    So what was their problem? Leave an observer or two outside, the rest rush the buildng, secure stairways and direct evacuation of the wounded using teenagers to help. Then press upwards, keeping the stairways covered always, and go kill the bastard.

    Beneath contempt.

      The fish rots from the head.
      Runcie, Israel, et al ended up placing a value on children’s lives to the tune of aapproximately 3.25 million dollars per pupil. That’s about how much federal money they got for statistically ‘reducing’ crime in the school district (the crime of course didn’t go away, they just stopped reporting it). Go on, Mr. Runcie, Sheriff Israel! Justify your decision to chase the taxpayer’s money! Give it a shot!
      They both need to be charged, convicted, and sentenced to solitary confinement without hope of parole, and to lose their pensions.

        Where is little Daley Hogg now?
        I hope the parents decide to sue the Sheriff and the Superintendent. Not in their official capacities, but as co-conspirators!! They created this problem and only showed remorse once they realized THEIR culpability!!

    Well-led cowards can perform like heroes; badly led heroes turn into cowards. With proper leadership the very deputies who were “sheltering” would have gone after the shooter. The buck stops with Sheriff Israel, who rates his leadership as “amazing”. That’s an empty word, and thus fitting.

    I don’t need to read any reports because I saw pictures of them behind their vehicles when the local police arrived. It needs to be said. Something seriously wrong went on here. Something planned and calculated. Something evil and clandestine. The conspiracy is that everything political in this country is a conspiracy. From the federal government agencies attempting to overthrow a duly elected president, to law enforcement, or at least aspects of it, doing everything to not apprehend nutcases in order to fool dimbulbs into not being able or allowed to defend themselves against the very cretinous losers who are causing this BS to happen. People need to get their heads out of you know where and demand answers, accoutablity, and justice against the true enemies of America. We’re surrounded by them, but they are the minority. They’ve only fooled people into thinking they are the majority by controlling the media. Remember, the media is the message.

      I thank you for your words. I am convinced that orders were given to allow a lot of victims at the hand of the nut case in order to initiate an anti gun campaign. Subsequent events point to this theory.

    Reminds me of the Clackamas Town Center shooting. Thenshopping center is literally across a parking lot from the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office. They took time to bring in their MOBILE COMMAND POST. before they would enter the building.

    To think that there was an intentional delay in the CCTV is beyond criminal.

      It makes perfect sense, if it was a staged, pre-planned false flag event.

      It makes no sense at all, otherwise.

    A friendly reminder Pelosi and Hogg want to disarm us because these cowards didn’t do their job as well as the incompetent FBI. Wray wants to remind us how swell a job they are doing and how highly the regular folk regard them.

    This insanity will continue until there are protections from the politicization of police departments at the highest levels. The motto at Broward seems to be “to serve and protect the Democrat party” instead of “to serve and protect the people.”

    I recall reading an article that it was a female Coward Cty SO Capt. that gave the order NOT to enter the school. Whether it was a female or male officer she or he should be directed to justify her/his action in WRITING….and then fired!

  16. President Barack Obama, the U.S. Dept. of Education, and the Broward City Schools were in on this fiasco too.

    The federal grant for $53,808,909 was meant for Teacher Incentive Awards for Broward County Public Schools. Instead, their local sheriff’s office became a social services agency. Acceptance of the grant meant the end of police protection in Broward County.

    Its ended better for the “Coward of the County”(Kenny Rogers song) than it will for the “Cowards of Broward County”.


  18. RLC2 says:

    Sheriff Coward of Broward was chosen for a reason, carpetbagged in to fulfill a role, and he obviously hired sycophants and cowards just like him-
    its a pattern on the Left- like Obama, never hire someone as good or better than you, only someone who makes you look good in comparison, and will eagerly participate in the crony corruption.

    That’s how you got a token captain diversity hire that the Sheriff brought along, giving tactical orders to retreat to take cover until Swatties get there…we Must All Get Home at End of Watch, per Union Rule #1, right after Count Days and crooked ways to max out my Dollars for Pension, #2.

    The dead kids paid the ultimate price for the voters choice to be ruled by the corrupt incompetent Democrat Progressive Mafia in S. Florida…

    Scott Israel will be sacrificed by his masters to appease the sheeple and draw attention away from their planned systemic failures in the education and police establishments. I’m sure they will reward the cowardly sycophant will some consulting gig at taxpayers expense.
    Do not be fooled or appeased by this. This is all just part of the larger plan to disarm and disenfranchise the populace.


  20. JR says:

    The coral spring officer in the report is what we expect. Cool and calm while preparing for the worst possible scenarios. This officer is an example of courage.


  21. rioosodog says:

    This not going to end well for anyone. I suspect the officers were told to stand down. I can not imagine the pain and grief the officers are going through. I suspect before it is all said and done there will be life ending consequences for the rank and file. Sorry, being outside and hearing what was going on inside… I am sure that it is stuff nightmares and soul sucking terror is made of! Pray for them!


    • James W Crawford says:

      You are right. I would not be amazed if some of the more honorable officers who were just following orders commit suicide. POTUS Trump should appoint some type of special investigator who would interview them ASAP to preserve evidence.


  22. Buck says:

    Our great DOJ saw fit to reward this cowardice with a grant of 1 million dollars.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the grant demonstrates the department’s commitment to helping first responders.

    “The school shooting in Parkland shocked and horrified the nation, but the community and law enforcement at all levels have shown resilience and determination,” Mr. Sessions said. “As I told our state and local partners back in February, the Department of Justice stands ready to help them in any way we can. Today we offer $1 million to support the police who have been working overtime in the aftermath of this tragedy. They can be sure about this: we have their backs.”

  24. I just discovered this group. I’m not trolling I promise. I run a podcast with a former officer of 26 years and our slogan is “Bringing police and society closer together”. We have now reached thousands of listeners in over 20 countries. We covered this incident in-depth on our show. We make ZERO profit, it is all donated to both sides of the line.
    Maybe some of you will check them out. Our POdcasts are on our site and you can see in the summary which shows talk about this incident, but we cover MANY other topics as former cops. We will answer ANY of your question if you contact us as best we can.
