It seems every day that there's more smoke from the out of control fire that is the bungling of response to the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. First, an EMT told Brian Entin of WSVN in Miami that they were not allowed to enter the school:
"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— Brian Entin (@BrianEntin) February 24, 2018
“Now, our sources near the Broward County sheriff’s department are telling us that the deputies who arrived at the scene of the shooting were told not to enter the school unless their body cameras were turned on, and then we found out that the deputies did not have body cameras so they did not enter the building or engage the shooter."
“Curiously, police also lost radio communications during the parkland shooting. And our source claims that radio communication also went dead during the Fort Lauderdale airport shooting in 2017 that he also got a lot of criticism for.”
So let's recap: EMT's weren't allowed to enter to help. Deputies were told not to enter to engage an active shooter. One of the deputies was sent off into the sunset with a nice pension. The radio communications has fallen into the same Liberal Narnia where it's having a pina colada with 33,000 emails. And Scott Isreal, the Sheriff of all this nonsense, is blustering away in a manner that would make Anthony Scaramucci blush; defiantly refusing to step down, quoting Game of Thrones, shouting weirdness about "Candy and nuts" and OJ Simpson. Oh, and 18 people are dead - presumably - partly from his department's inaction. What will it take for this man to be fired?
Not to go full-on "Info Wars" here, but something is rotten in Denmark... or in this case, Parkland.
Anyway, all this will be fixed when they take your guns away, right? Can't stand down if you don't have an option to stand up...
