The longer the nation stews over our collective response to the Parkland, Florida school shooting of Valentine’s Day, the more questions we find ourselves asking about the incident as a whole.
And, no; I’m not here to push us down any crazy conspiracy rabbit hole. There is plenty of that protected Free Speech out there for you to peruse all over the internet. Except for on YouTube. Or in the mainstream media. Or on Facebook.
No, instead, one need only be reminded that Broward County Sheriffs were working explicitly will the Parkdale school districts in order to falsify crime statistics in order to procure federal grant money. The tactic used to alter the arrest records of teenagers was simple negligence, allowing the student populations of the area to run amok with little to no punishment whatsoever.
Now, nearly two weeks after the shooting itself, we are still finding ourselves bombarded with new allegations of wholesale wrongdoing on the part of Broward County officials, including reports from one anonymous first responder who recalls an incredibly disturbing “stand down” order that prevented him from saving lives.
Trending: Fuel for Thought
“Speaking to a WSVN Miami News 7 reporter, an emergency medical responder who was one of the first at the scene, said law enforcement did not follow mass casualty event protocols.
“Reporter Brian Entin published comments from the responder – who did not want to be identified for fear of reprisal – on Twitter Saturday.
“Everything I was trained on mass casualty events says they did the wrong thing.” I spoke with a seasoned emergency medical responder who was one of the first to the Stoneman shooting. He doesn’t want me using his name for fear he will get fired. Here are his exact quotes. @wsvn pic.twitter.com/t9trsOEaek

“According to CNN, four sheriff’s deputies posted up outside the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School did not enter the building as the shooting was taking place.
“President Trump on Monday slammed the deputies who did not enter the building, saying he would have ran into the school even if he wasn’t armed.”
This brave first responder’s report only acts to emphasize the already mighty questions surrounding the efficacy and culpability of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office in their inexcusable response to this tragedy and the role they played in the buildup of criminal activity in the area’s schools.
Compounding the issue of complete and utter negligence in the Parkland massacre is the mainstream media’s stranglehold on these allegations. Cable news networks have so far refused to explore the lengthy trail of paperwork that leads from the Sheriff’s Office systematic dismissal of juvenile felonies to the atrocity committed by Nikolas Cruz.
