Just to play devil's advocate, I'm beginning to wonder if the Broward County SO has updated it's active shooter training since before Columbine? With up to 4 deputies so far reacting the same way, I have to wonder if they have an institutional problem in addition to individual issues.

I still have a major issue with the individual officers not moving to contact with children in danger, especially given I assume they had body armor, they certainly had handguns, and if they didn't have long guns of some sort in their vehicles, then Why TF not? They have still failed in their individual roles as citizens and human beings, but it's starting to look to me like they weren't given much direction from their department.

That is all possible, Randy, even likely. The Sheriff is still a douchenozzle.
There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.

Don't disagree. But if I'm going to condemn someone I want to do so accurately, and make sure I cover all of their failure points ,

Can't find it now but there's a report floating around that's been verified by other sources that BCSO, Parkland PD, and the local school district colluded to not report misdemeanor and felony behavior in students of the district so the school district could get more money and some kind of award for excellence.
