Parkland School Resource Officer Scot Peterson, ‘Never Went In’ during the Mass Shooting (SRO Scot Peterson Suspended/Resigned) (VIDEO)
ARE YOU KIDDING ME, COULD LAW ENFORCEMENT POSSIBLY FAILED MORE, ESPECIALLY THE BROWARD COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE!!!
Just when we thought we had heard it all with the massive systemic failures that took place that lead to the mass murders at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida at the hands of Nikolas Cruz, we learn the following disgusting and cowardice fact. On Thursday, Broward Sheriff Scott Israel said that the school resource officer stationed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas never went into the building when the shooting began. WTF!!! The SRO, 54 year old Scott Peterson, never went into the building as gunfire continued as 17 individuals were killed and many more injured. The very person who is paid to protect the students and teachers, the one individual who had a gun waited outside as individuals were slaughtered. Sheriff Scott Israel said Deputy Scot Peterson should have “went in. Addressed the killer. Killed the killer.” Could law enforcement possibly have F’d this situation up anymore, from the FBI dropping the ball to the 39 times police went to the home to a SRO acting a coward as school children and teachers were killed. Sheriff Israel went on to say, “I am devastated. Sick to my stomach. He never went in.” Honestly, I am devastated and sick to my stomach how the entire system failed us all. More people than just this SRO need to go.
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School SRO suspended/retiring after failing to enter school and engage shooter
Eight days after mass shooter Nikolas Cruz murdered 17 people inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Broward’s top cop on Thursday revealed a stunning series of failures by the sheriff’s department.
A school campus cop heard the gunfire, rushed to the building but never went inside — instead waiting outside for another four agonizing minutes as Cruz continued the slaughter.
The school’s resource officer, Scot Peterson, 54, was suspended without pay then immediately resigned and retired. Two other deputies have been placed on restricted duty while Internal Affairs investigates how they handled the two shooter warnings.
The admissions, made by Broward Sheriff Scott Israel at a press conference on Thursday evening, added to the growing list of missed signs in the years before Cruz went on a rampage that has horrified the nation and reignited the debate on gun control. The FBI, in an earlier and equally astonishing admission, said last week that the agency failed to act on a tip in January that Cruz was a possible violent threat.
“I’m completely disgusted,” said Broward County Commissioner Michael Udine, a former mayor of Parkland whose daughter attends Stoneman Douglas. “There is nobody in authority talking to each other and every organization that had a chance to stop this completely failed our children from top to bottom.”
The school’s resource officer, Scot Peterson, was suspended without pay then immediately resigned and retired. Seriously, that’s it? This individual should be charged with negligent homicide. According to reports, Peterson’s annual salary in 2016 was $75,673.72, but he made $101,013 that year with overtime and other compensation. Are you serious, this officer made over $100K and when called upon to do his job, played the COWARD. And this dude back in 2014 won best SRO of the year? What the hell was the qualification, a pulse? There is no way this cop better get his full pension after this act of cowardice. As citizens like football coach Aaron Feis ran toward danger, putting himself in harms way to save others, we hear that his cop, whose job it was to protect the student just froze and made certain he was safe. UNREAL.
Broward County better get ready for the lawsuits after this revelation of negligence.
I have purposely held back on reporting of the mass shooting murders because of my outrage at the incompetence of law enforcement and the political nature that this story has taken with the LEFT trying politicize it with a gun grab. I feel for the students, the families and the friends and loved ones affected by this tragedy, and it was a tragedy in so many ways. However, it is obvious that many of the students are being exploited by the LEFT and the liberal MSM. The guns are not the problem, guns in the hands of crazy people might be. But more than that, had law enforcement, the FBI and the Broward County Sheriff’s office, just done their job … none of this would have happened.
WILL EVIL JUST DIE!!!
The face of evil for generations is finally close to death. As reported at TMZ, Charles Manson has been hospitalized and is close to death. Personally, this 83 year old can’t die soon enough. A spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation declined to comment regarding Manson’s status citing HIPAA privacy laws preclude the agency “from commenting on protected health information for any inmate in our custody.”
Charles Manson is in the hospital and, as one source familiar with his situation tells TMZ, “it’s not going to get any better for him.”
We’re told Manson was rushed to a Bakersfield hospital 3 days ago, and has been wheeled around on a gurney for various treatments … escorted by 5 uniformed cops.
We’re told the 83-year-old Manson, who lays still covered in blankets, looks ashen.
Our sources say Manson’s health has been steadily deteriorating and, as it was put to us, “It’s just a matter of time.”
Manson had serious health issues back in January as well, when he was hospitalized for severe intestinal bleeding and needed surgery to repair a lesion … but was deemed too weak by doctors and sent back to prison.
We Don’t Need More Gun Laws, We Need to Follow the Ones We Have: Air Force ‘Error’ Allowed Gunman to Buy Weapons That Were Used in Texas Church Shooting that Killed 26 People … The Air Force has Launched a Review
AIR FORCE ADMITS MAJOR SCREW UP … WE DON’T NEED MORE LAWS, WE NEED MORE DETAIL AND ATTENTION TO THE ONE’S WE HAVE.
Just a day after a gunman shot and killed 26 people and wounded more than 20 others at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas, the Air Force has admitted they they made an error. You might call it a fatal error. The Air Force failed to enter Devin P. Kelley’s domestic violence court-martial into a federal database that could have blocked him from buying the guns used in Sunday’s church massacre. Are you kidding me!!! From the sounds of the video below, the Air Force needs to change their rules, not just review them. Sorry, receiving a court martial due to domestic violence on your spouse and child should void you of ever owning a gun. PERIOD!
A day after a gunman massacred parishioners in a small Texas church, the Air Force admitted on Monday that it had failed to enter the man’s domestic violence court-martial into a federal database that could have blocked him from buying the rifle he used to kill 26 people.
Under federal law, the conviction of the gunman, Devin P. Kelley, for domestic assault on his wife and toddler stepson — he had cracked the child’s skull — should have stopped Mr. Kelley from legally purchasing the military-style rifle and three other guns he acquired in the last four years.
How in the hell do you screw this up? The Air Force has begun a review if how the criminal records of former Airman Devin P. Kelley following his 2012 domestic violence conviction. REALLY? As opined at Red Stated, the Air Force better being doing a lot more than that. According to Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek, Federal law prohibited him from buying or possessing firearms after this conviction. Initial information indicates that Kelley’s domestic violence offense was not entered into the National Criminal Information Center database by the Holloman Air Force Base Office of Special Investigations.
“The Air Force has launched a review of how the service handled the criminal records of former Airman Devin P. Kelley following his 2012 domestic violence conviction,” the Air Force said in a statement.
The statement said Heather Wilson, the Air Force secretary, and Gen. David Goldfein, the Air Force chief of staff, had ordered the Air Force inspector general to “conduct a complete review of the Kelley case.”
The Air Force also said it was looking into whether other convictions had been improperly left unreported to the federal database for firearms background checks.
ALL BRANCHES OF THE MILITARY better be reviewing all the cases of dishonorable discharges and make sure these individuals are in the database. They also need to review all cases of individuals who have been court martialed and tossed out if the military due to domestic assault and received bad conduct discharges. These people are criminals and need to be treated and such. A note to the LEFT, Democrats, liberals and politicians who in mere seconds after this heinous crime called for more gun control, go pound sand. So we are supposed to pass more gun control that would take the weapons out of good people’s hands to defend themselves, while we allow bureaucratic BS paperwork mistakes to allow a sick bastard like Devin P. Kelley to attain them. REALLY?
UNGODLY … 26 Dead and 20 Injures at Church Shooting in Sutherland Springs, TX (Update: Gunman Dead)(Update: Gunman ID’d as Devin Patrick Kelley)
HORROR IN SMALL TOWN AMERICA …
Authorities are stating that 26 people have been killed and 20 more injured following at church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas. A man dressed in black tactical-style gear and armed with an assault-style rifle opened fire inside the First Baptist Church around 11:20 AM on Sunday killing 26 people ranging from the ages from 5 to 72 years old.
SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas – A shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, Sunday morning left 26 people — ranging in age from 5 to 72 years old – dead and 20 wounded, authorities say.
Devin Patrick Kelley, of New Braunfels, has been identified as the gunman.
Kelley walked into the First Baptist Church and began shooting around 11:20 a.m., before fleeing in a vehicle, Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt said. Witnesses said Kelley was dressed in all black tactical gear and a ballistic vest and a Department of Public Safety official said he was carrying a Ruger ARb assault-type rifle.
Tackitt said Kelley was later found dead in the vehicle in Guadalupe County. The exact circumstances of his death are not known.
Johnnie Langendorff told KSAT’s Garret Brngr that he witnessed the end of the shooting and said another man and Kelley exchanged gunfire after Kelley left the church. Langendorff said he and the man chased Kelley for several minutes in their vehicle.
UPDATE I: Church Shooter crashes vehicle while being chased by local heroes. Neighbor got his gun and most likely prevented further carnage.The shooter is dead. Unknown whether he took his own life or was killed by other fire.
Devin Patrick Kelley has been identified as the gunman who killed at least 26 people at a church Sunday morning in Texas, a U.S. official told The Daily Beast. A week before he committed the worst massacre at a place of worship in American history, Kelley posted a photo of a semiautomatic rifle to Facebook with the caption: “She’s a bad bitch.”
The man authorities have identified as the shooter in the massacre at a Texas church was given a bad conduct discharge from the Air Force three years ago after being court-martialed for assault, a military spokesperson confirmed Sunday.
Federal law prohibits a person who has been dishonorably discharged from buying a firearm. Whether Kelley’s discharge would trigger the law was not immediately clear.
Devin P. Kelley, who served in logistics readiness at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico starting in 2010, was court-martialed in 2012 for two counts alleging assault on his spouse and assault on their child, Ann Stefanek, the chief of Media Operations for the Air Force, said in a statement.
Kelley was convicted and sentenced to 12 months in custody and given a bad conduct discharge, Stefanek said. He was discharged in 2014.
The 1968 Gun Control Act made it unlawful for a licensed firearms dealer to sell a weapon to a person with a dishonorable discharge or for such a person “to ship or transport in interstate or foreign commerce, or possess in or affecting commerce, any firearm or ammunition; or to receive any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce.”
