Report says up to four deputies did not enter Florida high school during shooting — Libs still blame NRA

On Friday, The Hill reported that as many as four Broward County Sheriff’s deputies did not enter Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the shooting in which 17 were killed, citing a report at CNN.  Despite this, radical anti-gun leftists continue to blame the NRA and companies like Delta and United Airlines continue their war against millions of law-abiding members of the organization because left-wing groups told them to.

According to The Hill:

CNN reported that when nearby Coral Springs police officers arrived on the scene, three sheriff’s deputies from the school’s county were standing behind their vehicles with their pistols drawn, but had not yet gone into the school.

If confirmed, that raises the number of Broward County police officers on the scene who did not enter the active shooting situation to four, following a report that Scot Peterson was present but did not enter the building when the shooting, which left 17 people dead and 14 injured, occurred.

Peterson, a sheriff’s deputy and the armed resource officer at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, was suspended Thursday and subsequently resigned.

Coral Springs city manager Mike Goodrum allegedly mentioned the episode with Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel at a Feb. 15 vigil for the shooting victims, the Hill said.  According to the report, Goodrum told Israel he was upset that deputies had stayed outside the school until Coral Springs police arrived.

Goodrum told CNN he and Israel shared a “heated moment,” but said that their offices have a “good working relationship,” The Hill added

“Given the horrific events of that day emotions were running high and the sheriff and I had a heated moment the following evening,” Goodrum said. “Sheriff Israel and I have spoken several times since and I can assure you that our departments have a good working relationship and the utmost respect for each other.”

Of course, none of this was known at the time CNN held its “60-Minute Hate,” disguised as a town hall event on gun control.

Maybe there’s something to the notion that Sheriff Israel needs to either resign or be fired.
