If David Hogg is looking to do another die-in (see David Hogg’s Publix Die-Ins Backfire on the Left and David Hogg Has a new Target for Trolling. It’s Donald Trump.), let me suggest the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. Who wouldn’t let paramedics enter the school to save students while THEY WERE ACTUALLY LYING THERE DYING.
We’re still not at the point where we’ve run out of ways the BSO f***ed up.
Michael McNally, deputy chief for Coral Springs fire-rescue, asked six times for permission to send in specialized teams of police officers and paramedics, according to an incident report he filed after the Feb. 14 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 people dead.
But every time McNally asked to deploy the two Rescue Task Force teams — each made up of three paramedics and three to four law enforcement officers — the Broward Sheriff’s Office captain in charge of the scene, Jan Jordan, said no.
“The [BSO] incident commander advised me, ‘She would have to check,’ ” McNally wrote in the report released Thursday by Coral Springs. “After several minutes, I requested once again the need to deploy RTF elements into the scene to … initiate treatment as soon as possible. Once again, the incident commander expressed that she ‘would have to check before approving this request.'”
Even after they arrested the shooter, the answer didn’t change. Paramedics were refused entry.
At what point do we start firing people? I know the Sheriff received a vote of no confidence. I know I’d like to give him a vote of my foot up his ass.
But I’ve yet to hear any way the Broward County Sheriff’s Office has NOT made things worse. If anything, they seem to have done a bang up job preventing people from making a tragedy less tragic.
Yet in the direct aftermath of the shooting, the Parkland bunch, with their cadres in media, did everything they could to blame the shooting on the NRA and legal gun owners. Who had zero to do with the shooting, the tragedy of it, etc. Yet when the real culprits are identified, the media shrugs.
So here we are.
