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.

“Although the BSO deputies arrived before Coral Springs police, they didn’t immediately attempt to track down shooter Nikolas Cruz or aid the wounded, according to the reports.” ~ Miami Herald

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:

      Union….have to go through the process acvording to contract. And if Scott Isreal is still there it wont fix the problem.

      FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Members of the Broward Sheriff’s Office rank-and-file have until Thursday to let their voices be heard in a no-confidence vote for Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.

      Today, in person voting begins at the union office in Plantation.

      Deputies can check one of two boxes.  “They’ll come in, they’ll be given a ballot,” union president Jeff Bell explained, “A simple ballot right here, it’s a very simple question.  I have confidence in Sheriff Israel or I do not  have confidence in Sheriff Israel.

          “The Justice Department has awarded a $1 million grant to Florida state and local law enforcement to cover expenses related to the Parkland high school shooting earlier this year.

          The grant is intended to pay salary and overtime expenses for the first responders who arrived at the scene, according to a Justice Department release shared by ABC News.”

                It is sad but most local police have never even had to draw their firearm in the line of duty and retired after many years of service. They qualify once a year with a basic evaluation of firearm capability. Most don’t got to the range except to practice before the evaluation. Many lack training in such things as an active shooter, terror, bio-hazard such as a chemical spill, or riot.

            Gee. Who could of seen that coming?! {sarc}
            Many of this see this event as a false flag in order to subvert the 2nd amendment. The last school shooting was “rewarded” with lots of money from various sources. Furthermore, the rapid response by the radicals was just a little too slick. It takes a lot of planning to pull off town halls, marches on D.C. and well spoken “students” who happen to live nearby or go to that school (depending on which news source you watch) who are willing to talk up anti-gun and anti-NRA (who had nothing to do with it…), on such short notice. And the fact that this high school was so close to DWS’s house… well–excuse me, but we were not born yesterday! I don’t believe in coincidences.

        I do not know of a single collective bargaining agreement that doesn’t allow for termination due to gross misconduct, on the first offence. I believe the misconduct is a gross as it can possibly get. Israel needs to go and his homies need to go with him. They are losers pinned to badges, and they allowed too many children to get killed due to their misconduct. The Union would have a difficult time trying to save their jobs. It would not be favorable to the Union to do so.

        Interesting. I agree – it may be TRAINING – but at least in Parkland, I am certain it is NOT an accident.

        Sub-standard methods, out-of-date protocols, and “Gorelick-style mea culpas” are high-cover, low-risk strategies in conspiracy theory. This means that such methods strongly affect outcome with almost zero risk to those desiring the outcome. Incompetence is always the nearby life-ring – easy to grab. By training people to behave in a certain way, and observing that they do, the outcome is assured without any need for conscious buy-in by lower-level participants. Lower-level participants are automatically excused by lack of plot knowledge and predictable lower-level cover-up behaviors. Higher-level participants are excused by blame-casting to the lower-level participants. People will assume their excuse roles in a predictable way.

        Right now, I need only three people conscious of the plot in Parkland, other than Obama and Jarrett. That would be Eric Holder, Robert Runcie, and Scott Israel. Everybody else simply performs as TRAINED, even if training is at odds with WRITTEN POLICY.

        Holder we know from the creation of the PROMISE programs, and his central role of all Obama scandals. Scott Israel simply has so much pointing at him, nothing makes sense without him. There must be a third party on location who coordinates with deep state, and Red Runcie – so out of view by the media except when he wants it – so protected by cards – so “Harvard” – is my bet. Those three people are all that is needed to make it happen.

            This is all WAY bigger, IMO, than just Trump. I think damaging Trump is now PART of what they are doing, but I think this stuff would be “going off” under Hillary otherwise – that it was PREPARED for Hillary.

            They didn’t do all that Parkland Promise Program prep over YEARS without an endgame that had little if ANYTHING to do with Trump. This was designed to go off under either Hillary or JEB. In JEB’S old Florida, if he was in the White House.

            They are after bigger fish than Trump. They are LITERALLY gunning for the Constitution, and want to install a ONE-PARTY STATE.

            And yes – it must be infuriating for them that Trump doesn’t budge when they do this stuff. Or rather, he comes back with responses that undo their hard-won hacks of the system. It’s WONDERFUL! 😀

            • Excuse me, but my husband has been a firefighter for 32 years! He does not work JUST a few days a week – he works a 48-hour straight shift, in which he often gets less than four hours of total sleep and then he has four days off, at least one, if not two, of which are spent recovering from his time at work!

              He will not retire with anywhere close to 200K – probably about 1/2 of that, actually! And the average life expectancy of a firefighter after retirement is less than 15 years – thanks to all the chemical exposure many of them develop presumptive cancers, and many of them have so stressed their adrenal systems with their schedules that their bodies just shut down.

              Just curious what you do for “work” Mikey, since you seem to be so woefully misinformed about other peoples’ jobs?

                The money that was awarded as i understand it would be for all the departments that had to respond. Major events like this sap local taxpayer resources which is why this fund was set up.

                I am begining to wonder if the sheriffs deputies had any body armor. Could the stand down have been SOP to allow Swat to arrive? I am not saying its good policy I am just wondering. I know that the airport response that was previous to this was criticized for not being organized with people stepping on each other. One has to wonder if that was a response issue or a turf issue.

                Many of his exploits were known and recognized in various ways. Many were only known to coworkers or the others at the scene. For those of us in the know, many of us were surprised he made it to retirement, and to a ripe old age. This guy cheated death, and went beyond the call of duty, plenty of times.

                There really is no pay grade to entice and reward this kind of legacy. While the funeral was nice, there were aspects to it that, likewise, cannot have a price tag applied. Nuf Said.

        End student loan program as we know it.

        Almost anyone can borrow money to wander through campus for years, and after a while asking what degree they are closest to, so they can graduate after six years of brain washing.

        By the thousands, directionless young adults are handed tens of thousands and allowed to go pick some indulgent classes, while under the facade of vocational prep, or under the facade of prep for a life of scholarship.

        Like a contestant at the end of the old Wheel of Fortune, the students have their “money,” but they only have it to spend on the “studio filled with glamorous merchandise.”

        To attract the money, schools have filled the course schedule with all kinds of classes. Since Marxists have been, traditionally, over-educated intellectual elites, they all believe that getting a college education in Marxism is very desirable. And, it gives them a job.

        So, with all of that money chasing education, the marxists get their jobs providing the classes, and so the universities can provide classes, and attract the students.

        This has happened in recent decades. So, parents have graduated, and send their kids there, directionless, for Marxists to fill their heads with SJW.

        And, we all now know, these degrees are worthless. So, we turn them into pissed-off voters clamoring to have their debt paid off.

        Instead, we could just loan money for realistic endeavors, such as an engineering degree. No more loans of $100,000 for a degree in Elizabethan Literature, or SJW – there is no prospect of getting a job to pay loan off for those degrees. So, don;t do it.

        Problem solved in one generation.

        ATthispointwhatdifferencedoesitmake … I am making the assumption (I know it’s a ‘bad thing’ assuming) that you have done the searches on at least two national and/or area search services before making your comment. That being said, I used to have (and use) access to many of these services for research (I no longer pay their fees – no need) … so these facts REALLY bother me! A few people missing? Sure, I’ll buy that, as people compile them, and people DO make mistakes, but ALL of them from both events assembled and collated a continent apart? The simple odds of that happening for two similar events are completely outrageous, and “off-the-hook”, as my grandchildren would say! Hmmmm …

        I am VERY curious what the Regional FBI Crime Data Sheets for those areas will show, when published – I forget the exact name of the reports (old age setting in I guess) but they show all of the crimes ‘by classification’ in each geo-political area of the country for the reporting year. Similar to the report that WAS published showing “ZERO homicides” recorded in Newtown, Connecticut in the report that covered the dates of the Sandy Hook ‘shooting’. These regional reports are then compiled for the National Totals.

        Please, if you have full access, keep watching these services, see if it changes, and how it might change! Then let us all know!

        PS: I have not trusted our government in telling the whole truth for a VERY long time; mainly because of what I personally KNEW was happening in certain un-named places in the world during the mid to late – 1960’s, and SAW what was being “released and reported” to the general public. BIG differences to say the least! As President Reagan once said, “Trust but verify”!

      Don’t know how things work where you live.

      I have real close up and personal experience with a Sheriff’s Office. The county was pretty rural and oddly configured, geographically, which created some big challenges. There is no way response time could be good under those circumstances, you couldn’t fund enough deputies to do it adequately.

      In our state, Sheriff’s deputies get the same training police officers do. No difference. In the cities, though, they see different types of crimes and police officers tend to be specialists: traffic, narcotics, vice, whatever. Deputies have to be generalists because they may have to handle anything and everything from traffic stops to burglaries to domestics, and without the luxury of back up any time within the next hour or two.

      Personally, I saw no difference between the professionalism of the deputies and municipal police officers. Where things start to fall apart is because when you have to handle every kind of crime you can’t possibly know everything about every area and you won’t be as experienced because some things you may only see once or twice in your career.

      But again, my experience was with a county that was pretty rural and had one big town. I don’t know a lot about how a large urban Sheriff’s Office like Broward County is organized or operates.

      But I don’t like what I see from Broward, that’s for sure.

    Kyle Kashuv went to a shooting range with his Dad and received proper instructions on the AR-15 this last Friday. Photos and videos were taken to memorialize this fun and informative day for the both of them.

    Fellow students had looked in his facebook and twit account and complained to the school. So by third period, Kyle was asked to go see a Mr. Greenleaf who was an armed school officer. In entering his office, another armed school officer sat directly behind Kyle and the two officers proceeded to question Kyle everything and anything about his Friday excursion with his Dad.

    At one time he had asked if he could tape the conversation and was denied. Also during this questioning a sheriff from Broward County entered to question Kyle as well.

    Kyle was scared. He’s only 15 or 16 years old. I’m sure he was raised to respect authority, and it is why he did not ask for a parent or a lawyer. However, he did know what they were doing had to be wrong. He explained that their questions were ridiculous, especially when not any of them had looked at his tweets or fb page. He also felt intimidated and this was done on purpose, especially when one sits directly behind Kyle to ask him questions.

    In essence, the school and Broward County refuse to look into any of their troubled kids who could actually be a real danger, but with Kyle? They were all over him and couldn’t even do their jobs in looking up the tweets and fb page. They were out of line and attacking this poor child, and I’m sure broke a few laws along the way.

    So it’s hard for me to see these officers all doing as they should and marking no, they do not have faith in Israel. At least one of them made it a point to go down and harass Kyle about his Second Amendment right. I wouldn’t doubt if this was one of the cowards who hid behind a tree or vehicle when there was a real danger.

    I do believe the majority of the officers will cross off the box saying, no, we don’t have faith, but only doing so out of pressure from the public, and nothing else.

        GB Bari,
        I understand where you’re coming from, but I have to disagree. The school had no right whatsoever to interrogate that child in the way they chose to do so.

        These kids live their life on social media, they take pictures of everything and post to their friends to let them know what they’re up to. If anything, the kids who were upset over it shouldn’t have gone to his sites. If you ask me, they were only looking to get him in trouble and I call that a form of bullying. It’s obvious they don’t Kyle and the only reason they even went to his social media sites was to continue their spying and waiting for the moment they could get him in trouble. This bs about how they worried about what he may do is a bunch of hooey. They know it, Kyle knows it, and it should’ve been obvious to the adults at the school as well. However, I can see how it went right over their tiny, small-minded little heads.

        I don’t do twit or fb or any of the other multitudes of social media. I don’t want my business known, and I don’t live for likes and checks or whatever they are on there. If I want to talk to someone I still use the phone, and I still write letters and send cards. I believe you and I are the same in that respect.

        In all honesty, I wish kids didn’t rely so heavily on social media and texting. I believe they are missing out on so much.

        Thankfully, my daughter still uses the phone to talk to people. I just heard her talking for thirty minutes with one of her friends when she was done with her homework. Yes, I still check. 🙂She’s only just turned thirteen. Plus, she did all of this outside as I was cleaning up with our snow melting. I found quite a lot of the pups balls, which had been hiding for most of our winter. So I double lucked out with her being and enjoying the outside rather than her cooped up in her room.

        Sometimes we have to give these kids a break, they are living in different times than we did. I know it’s not always easy to understand since our ways seem so much better. A lot more fun too. But it is what it is and we have to do our best to do well by them. They are our future, and we have to do our best in teaching them right, but we also have to listen to their voice once in awhile.

        I cannot stand bullies, no matter their age. I’ve always told my daughter that a bully usually has a miserable home life and lashing out against others. I get in more detail, but you know what I mean.

        Our family and community is lucky that our schools have not gone the way as so many have as of yet. My daughter had an absolute horrible experience from a fellow student who wrote and called her some nasty names on his social media account. I called the school and had a long and good talk with the school counslor. And even though it happened after school hours and off of school grounds, she called the Mom to let her know what her child had specifically said. I got a phone call from the Mom as I had asked for my number to be passed on. We talked and her son got in a whole lot of trouble. She said it was not how he was raised. I took her word and my daughter got an apology from her son, eventually.

        Us three adults chalked it up as him showing off to his friends, which of course was wrong.

        My daughter was really hurt and cried over this. She had never been called such nasty names and didn’t deserve it. As she said, she wears baggy sweatshirts and never wears revealing clothing to school. She is slim, and I think she is stunning in looks and composure. This however hurt how she saw her image. She is a size 3 and in seventh grade. She doesn’t have an ounce of fat on her and if anything, her gymnastics has made her strong and healthy.

        Anyways, I am ever so grateful she had a counslor who took it in the direction it should’ve been taken. I know she didn’t follow the rules, but sometimes they are meant to be broken in order to do the right thing.

        Oh, and the boy cried as well when his mom had confronted him about his nasty behavior and I say, good. It means he has a conscience or so I hope.

        Let your children know that bullies usually end up messing up their adult lives, and the ones who were bullied by them are more than likely to thrive in the real world and become successful in the areas they choose. I know it doesn’t help much now, but it may make them feel a bit better knowing they have what it takes to be whoever they want to be in the workforce, and their bullies don’t.
        I will have my fingers crossed and prayers sent for them in it getting better.
        Be well,
        Ma’iingankwe

    As a New Yorker I lived in the heart of Dixie for a large chunk of my life. Those weren’t “good old boys” hiding outside. They were SJW pretend cops. Coward County doesn’t want Clint Eastwood – John Wayne types because beta males are intimidated by real men. Good old boys would have guzzled their beer down in 3 seconds and charged into that school.

    Anti-Gun Control Parkland Survivor Kyle Kashuv Questioned By School Security For Visiting Gun Range With His Father.

    Near the end of third period, my teacher got a call from the office saying I need to go down and see a Mr. Greenleaf. I didn’t know Mr. Greenleaf, but it turned out that he was an armed school resource officer. I went down and found him, and he escorted me to his office. Then a second security officer walked in and sat behind me. Both began questioning me intensely. First, they began berating my tweet, although neither of them had read it; then they began aggressively asking questions about who I went to the range with, whose gun we used, about my father, etc. They were incredibly condescending and rude.

    Then a third officer from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office walked in, and began asking me the same questions again. At that point, I asked whether I could record the interview. They said no. I asked if I had done anything wrong. Again, they answered no. I asked why I was there. One said, “Don’t get snappy with me, do you not remember what happened here a few months ago?”

    (I still think there was a standown order. I hate to think so many yellow bellies find themselves on the SAME police force ).

      I also think there was a stand down order and the biggest question is why?
      Was the “event” required to have a maximum lethal toll so that the following anti gun theater would be a raging success?
      Was it so that the lone shooter narrative would never be in question?

    • On this thread are several posts noting that a woman who was second in command at the SO called out a stand down order. Too bad it takes so long to read these lllooooooonnngg threads!

    When you are on the ground confronting armed enemy the tactics developed in WW2 are the best. Combat infantry. These people are PC kook balls. Gotta get lead in the air.

    Is anyone surprised? How many times do we see our local PD on the news handing out clothes, playing basketball or delivering toys to kids. Police work in now ‘community policing’ and not enforcement. The mindset has been corrupted. That’s exactly why the members of Broward County acted the way they did. Have not seen Bondi on TV anywhere condemning their actions and she’s suppose to be pro LE, BS.
