Sources: BSO Deputies Ordered to Stage

Last Sunday when Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel was asked by Jake Tapper isf his officers were ordered to “stand down,” he refused to answer the question.

According to sources, the first deputies arriving at Margory Stoneham Douglas were ordered to “stage” and set up a perimeter while students and faculty were being murdered inside the school.

Of course Sheriff Israel isn’t responsible. By his own admission, he has done an “amazing” job. It appears Sheriff Fife, err Israel, is only responsible for positive actions of the Broward County Sheriff’s Department. He bears no responsibility for any negative actions of his agency.

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.

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.

    It’s ridiculous that this Hillary-bot sheriff still has a job.

    Jim,

    Sadly people get exactly what they voted for. That is the second tragedy of Parkland.

    there is a story out there that Hillary had this PUTZ on her short list for FBI Director when (not IF, of course) she got elected.

    Come to think of it, he would fit right in at the new FBI.

    I didn’t vote for gun control, but that’s what we will get.

    More on this topic…

    The author of this article has the exact same perspective on what life WAS like, and what it SHOULD be like. 17 innocent people died in order to let Broward County and Obama feel like their UNICORN based “theory” of Juvinile Delinquency would work.

    ==> “When I was growing up, there was no chance that a juvenile with a file like Cruz’s would be outside of the justice system. Law enforcement would have been looking for excuses to take him off the street, not making excuses for failing to do so.”

    5,

    Very true. I grew up in a smallish community. Not that we all knew each other but small enough you could get an introduction thru a friend of a friend. Same vein, the cops, city, sheriff and FHP, all knew pretty much who was who. A guy like Cruz would have been in JD by the time he was stealing hubcaps
