Although the Florida shooting has slipped from the headlines, the gun banners have got Trump to do their bidding, and put him on the slippery slope to gun control, and the loss of his presidency.
However, disturbing facts continue to emerge about this political event regarding “stonewalling” by the head sheriff involved:
“One of the things we also know is that Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, an armed school resource officer on duty inside the school the day of the shooting, reportedly did nothing to save his young charges. Is this why Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is stonewalling the release of surveillance video that could provide investigators with more evidence and clues regarding the massacre? That’s what an editorial in the Sun-Sentinel newspaper is asking.“Since the Valentine’s Day shooting” at the school “in Parkland, many government officials have walled off information needed to assess how well they did their jobs,” the editorial states.
“At the head of the pack is Broward Sheriff Scott Israel, who suggests the school’s resource officer acted cowardly during the mass shooting and two deputies mishandled earlier warnings. Aside from that, though, the sheriff wants you to take his word that he and his deputies did amazing work before, during and after the shooting,” the paper continued. Not good enough, the editors stated. The only way to hold government officials accountable to the people who appointed or elected them is complete transparency. That means that the people are going to have to see the surveillance video for themselves — no holds barred — otherwise it’s a situation where local Floridians will have to “take the word” of a sheriff who still hasn’t explained all he should have to explain. Like why, according to various reports, his deputies refused to enter the school as children were being killed — like the department’s protocols state. Israel has said that yeah, that’s what should have happened, but it didn’t and people want to know why. …
“The video is not the only public record sought by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel and other media organizations in the aftermath of the shooting and the epic government failure surrounding it,” the editorial noted. “Among other things, we’ve also requested copies of the 911 calls, police radio calls and incident reports from the 39 times [Broward Sheriff’s Office] deputies were called to the home of Nikolas Cruz, who’s confessed to carrying out the rampage that killed 17 and injured 17.”
The surveillance video actually just became more important. As the New York Postreports, Peterson has been caught lying about details of the shooting. He has said he believed that the shooter was outside — which is where he was — but in reality transcripts of his radio call to HQ show he knew that the shooter was inside. What’s more, the paper said, he also warned responding officers to stay away from the school as kids were being killed.”
As I see it, all of this is highly suspicious. Why didn’t the armed officer engage the shooter and save lives? Was there a conspiracy to increase the death toll so that the US could arrive at the present level of gun control, which is involving ignoring due process with Trump’s blessing? And, what massacres will be occurring in the future to produce gun banning by a Fabian ratchet effect?
