Commanding Officer Initially Ordered Responding Deputies to ‘Stage’ and Not Enter Stoneman Douglas High School to Take on Shooter


Now we are learning that the responding deputies to the mass murder shootings at Stoneman Douglas High School were ordered by the commanding officer to “stage” and not directly enter the school. Even though this directly goes against Broward County Sheriff’s office policy. UNREAL. Ass one more f*ck up by law enforcement to the long list of them that allowed this carnage to occur. If there was ever a real life example of the word clusterf*ck, it would be how all, from the FBI to Broward County Sheriff’s office handled the Nikolas Cruz matter. This also includes how the high school handled the problem as well. It is incredible, that if this report is true, the only individuals with guns legally at the school were waiting outside as innocent people were being killed and were dying. UNREAL.

Via FOX News:

Fox News has learned that in the critical moments as first responding deputies were searching for an active shooter on the property of Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school, a commanding officer on scene apparently ordered some of the initial responders to “stage” and set up a “perimeter” outside — instead of immediately ordering or allowing officers to rush in to neutralize the suspect, Nikolas Cruz.

“It’s atrocious,” a law enforcement source who was on the scene after the shooting told Fox News. “If deputies were staging it could have cost lives.”

The law enforcement source said responding deputies and officers were called to an active shooter scene in which they are trained to immediately “go, go, go” toward the direction of the shooter. “Every second is another life,” the source said.

BrowaRD cOUNTY operating procedures

The Broward County Sherrif’s Office policy on active shooters indicates responding deputies may enter the building to preserve life without permission. That remains the priority until various objectives are met such as the shooter being detained. The policy does not appear to list staging — setting up an area to keep first responders safe before police secure a violent scene — or a perimeter as an immediate priority. [...]

Fox News has repeatedly reached out to the Broward County Sheriff’s office — which was the commanding agency that day — for comment on the timeline of the shooting and also on the allegations of bad commands from any commanding officer. In an email, a BSO spokesperson wrote that the case remained active and ongoing and that no additional details were being released, per a Florida statute.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating all of the responding agencies and timeline of the day of the shooting. Fox News asked the FDLE about the specific allegations of bad commands or a pre-mature order to stage. In an email, an FDLE spokesperson wrote that its “review is active” and could not comment on the allegations.

CNN’s Jake Tapper Takes On Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel Over Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting … Sheriff Says He Has Provided “Amazing” Leadership Protecting Community (VIDEO)


On Sunday in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel stated that he has provided “Amazing Leadership” and refused to take any responsibility for the deadly mass shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 dead. WHAT?!? Not only did the one resource officer not enter the building and waited for back up, but three other Broward County Sheriff’s deputies refused to enter the building and take on the shooter as the gunman killed innocent students. And this sheriff thinks he has provided amazing leadership, really? What kind of a cowardice department was this sheriff running?

You know its pretty bad for Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel when I find myself agreeing with Jake Tapper. The fact that this sheriff takes no responsibility for any of the actions of those beneath him show just how much of a lack of leadership he has provided. There comes a point where a leader admits their fault and looks to fix the problem and sometimes that even means resigning.  Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel needs to step down now. Not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 of his deputies acted the coward and refused to protect school children when they most needed the aid of law enforcement. That shows a systemic problem and that comes from a lack of leadership.

There is no way Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel survives this … he will either be forced to resign or fired from office. His amazing leadership aside, none of this would have ever have happened in the first place had his department done their job, let alone acted in doing their job to protect and serve. We support law enforcement; however, this is hardly it. All involved in the calamity of egregious errors that resulted in the deaths of 17 people must go and go now.


TAPPER: Are you really not taking any responsibility for the multiple red flags that were brought to the attention of the Broward sheriff’s office about this shooter before this incident, whether it was people near him, close to him calling the police–

ISRAEL: Jake, Jake — Jake, I can only take responsibility for what I knew about. I exercised my due diligence. I’ve given amazing leadership to this agency–

TAPPER: ‘Amazing leadership?’

ISRAEL: Yes, Jake. There’s a lot of things we’ve done throughout this — this is — you don’t measure a person’s leadership by a deputy not going in to — these deputies received the training they needed.

TAPPER: Maybe you measure somebody’s leadership by whether or not they protect the community. You’ve listed 23 incidents before the shooting involving the shooter and still, nothing was done to keep guns out of his hands, to make sure that the school was protected, to make sure you were keeping an eye on him — I don’t understand how you can sit there and claim amazing leadership?

Parkland School Resource Officer Scot Peterson, ‘Never Went In’ during the Mass Shooting (SRO Scot Peterson Suspended/Resigned) (VIDEO)


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.

Beth Holloway Oxygen Media over a TV Series “The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway” of Her Daughter’s 2005 Disappearance in Aruba


As reported at the WAPO, Beth Holloway, he mother of Natalee Holloway, is suing Oxygen media for $35 million of what she contends was a fake television documentary about the case. Natalee Holloway, a Mountainbrook, Alabama teen went missing during her senior trip to Aruba in 2005. Holloway is seeking $10 million in compensation and $25 million in punitive damages against Oxygen Media, an arm of NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, and the Los Angeles-based Brian Graden Media. The suit contends that rather than being a documentary or true investigation, the show was a “scripted, pre-planned farce calculated to give the impression of real-time events.

All I can say is I hope Beth is successful. I thought the TV series was pretty much nonsense after the first 15 to 30 minutes. I painfully watched it to keep informed, but much of it became unwatchable. It did seem contrived, like reality TV of a missing persons case, which I find a bit disgusting. Having been involved in this case from the very beginning and having actually searched for Natalee Holloway in Aruba and knowing the family personally, the TV series seemed shameless. In full disclosure, I have to say that I have never really found T.J. Ward’s premises and conclusions credible. We shall see how this law suit develops, I hope she wins. Let’s be serious folks, we know who did it, we know how it most likely happened. Keep in mind, Joran Van der Sloot all but admitted it, the Aruba legal system just decided not to prosecute.

Beth Holloway Law suit

Law suit

Last August, when Oxygen Media debuted a six-part documentary series on the case, the first episode pulled in a cumulative 1.1 million viewers, reportedly the highest true crime show premiere in the network’s history.

But that series — “The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway” — is now at the center of a $35 million federal lawsuit filed by Natalee’s mother, Beth Holloway.

According to a legal complaint filed Feb. 2, the show was “not a realtime or legitimate investigation into new leads,” as the program claimed to be, but a “pre-planned farce.” Holloway claims she was duped into providing her DNA to be tested against remains found by producers —  without being told that the testing was for a television show. Entertainment and ratings were the priority, not investigation, the lawsuit suggests.

The lawsuit argues that the network and Brian Graden Media, the show’s production company, knew “prior to filming their Series that they would not find Natalee because the Series was pre-conceived and was not a real-time investigation discovering new facts.”


Oxygen addresses the lawsuit:

“We were disappointed to learn of the complaint and its inaccurate depiction of how the series was produced, and we want to reiterate our deep compassion and sympathy for all members of the Holloway family,” the statement said.

“The documentary series was developed by a production company in close collaboration with Dave Holloway and his longtime private investigator. The show followed his continued search to find answers about his daughter Natalee from a lead he had received. We had hoped, along with Mr. Holloway, that the information was going to provide closure.”

Brian Graden Media did not immediately return a message for comment.

Did Oxygen media exploit a desperate family looking for answers finally in the case of missing Natalee Holloway? You make the call.Was it really an attempt to find answers or just make money and exploit the case that so many want answers too?

The six-episode Oxygen series was billed as another attempt to find answers. The series followed Natalee’s father — Beth Holloway’s ex-husband Dave Holloway — and private investigator T.J. Ward as they re-tackled the case.

The key moments involved discussions with informants, including one who claimed “to have known Joran van der Sloot, to have exhumed Natalee’s body at van der Sloot’s bidding, to have ‘crushed’ Natalee’s remains into little pieces, and to have burned her skull before disposing of her remains,” the legal complaint stated.

The show’s participants took possession of the bone fragments identified by the suspects. On Aug. 10 2017, Dave Holloway contacted his ex-wife, explaining they needed her DNA to see if the human female remains were Natalee’s. He did not tell her the testing was part of a television production, the lawsuit said. She provided the DNA sample — but then heard nothing, until she learned about Oxygen series. The legal complaint alleges producers already knew the remains would not match the missing girl before making the request.

“Defendants further preyed and capitalized on Beth’s desperate need and desire to find her daughter by claiming directly to Beth that they may have found Natalee’s gravesite and asking for .?.?. Beth’s DNA to test against the remains they claimed to have spontaneously discovered there,” the suit says. “To obtain Beth’s DNA, Defendants misrepresented and omitted facts surrounding their ‘discovery’ of remains.”

DUI: Twice Deported Illegal Alien Manuel Orrego-Savala Kills Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson & Uber Driver Jeffrey Monroe


37 year old, twice deported, twice arrested for DUI, Manuel Orrego-Savala is suspected of driving drunk yet again and is responsible for the deaths of 26-year-old Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and 54-year-old Uber driver Jeffrey Monroe. The fatal car accident took place at 4 a.m. Sunday on Interstate 70 in Indiana. According to FOX59, investigators believe Monroe was Jackson’s Uber driver and Jackson was the passenger,. The station said at some point during the ride Jackson became sick, and the pair were hit on the emergency shoulder of the highway after Monroe pulled over. Orrego-Savala fled the scene but was arrested shortly thereafter by the responding officer.

When is enough, enough? How many American citizens have to be killed by illegals before we take action to really prevent them from being in this country, not treating it like a joke?

Edwin Jackson_illegals

Manuel Orrego-Savala, left, is from Guatemala and currently is in the U.S. illegally responsible for the death of
Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and another man on Super Bowl Sunday.

The man suspected of driving drunk and fatally striking an Indianapolis Colts player and his Uber driver early Sunday had twice been deported and was in the country illegally, police confirmed Monday.

Police say Manuel Orrego-Savala, 37, had a blood-alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit when he hit and killed Edwin Jackson, a 26-year-old Colts linebacker, and 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe, Jackson’s Uber driver, around 4 a.m. Sunday.

Orrego-Savala is from Guatemala, according to Indiana State Police. He was first deported in 2007 and again in 2009 following arrests in San Francisco, according to a spokesperson for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE officials say Orrego-Savala has a prior conviction in California for driving under the influence.

Wake up America, especially those on the LEFT … this never had to happen. This was completely preventable had we had a border that actually kept illegals out. But Democrats would rather shut down the U.S. government in favor of illegals in America.

Orrego-Savala’s history in the U.S. dates back more than a decade. ICE spokesperson Nicole Alberico said in an email that Orrego-Savala is believed to have entered the country on or around July 1, 2004.

He was convicted of driving under the influence in Redwood City, Calif., in 2005, Alberico said. It was unclear what happened immediately following his conviction.

He was once again arrested by ICE in San Francisco in October 2006 for being in the country illegally. He was removed to Guatemala for the first time on Jan. 17, 2007.

He was again arrested by deportation officers in San Francisco on March 26, 2009, and was removed to Guatemala for the second time on May 12, 2009.

It is unknown when he returned to the U.S. and at what point he arrived in Indiana.

According to the state police, the crash happened shortly before 4 a.m. Sunday along the westbound lanes of I-70, just west of Holt Road.

Jackson and Monroe, of Avon, were standing near Monroe’s stopped vehicle when Orrego-Savala’s Ford F-150 pick-up truck drove onto the emergency shoulder and struck them both.
