Deputy On Duty Didn't Engage Shooter

Post by Jered » Fri Feb 23, 2018 1:10 am

There was a cop on duty at the school. He was on the scene of the shooting in a couple of minutes. He did not engage the shooter.

Well at least he resigned. It can be hard to tell what a person's reaction to this sort of thing will be before it actually happens, but it's still a total failure on his part and those that hired him.

There is a ton of legal precedent that the police have no duty to try to protect you. Sooooooo, it is your obligation to protect yourself.

He might want to consider relocating somewhere a bit more unknowing of his "exploits."

Consider this unverified; I was looking for confirmation but I won't have time to dig tonight.

If it is true, a very troubling situation in Broward County

This has got me really hot... so bear with me.

First, this garbage Sheriff wants to take away our AR15s, but his deputy failed to do his damn job during the shooting? (besides not doing anything 39 times they showed up this lil angel's home)

Second, since he has been forced to resign, I assume they aren't under the old doctrine of Virginia Tech: cordoning off the area, gather numbers, let people die for 2 hours before anything happens...

Third, if that is the case then this is an act of cowardice and should be treated as such. If LEO's love to have the "LEO/Military" comparison/culture, then this guy either gets a Court Martial or, at least, Article 13.

But how is a guy supposed to confront someone with an AR15...? If you want to put on a uniform, badge, and gun while thinking you are the equivalent of the military... I was taught to march toward the sound of the guns; MOVE!

On another note, can we stop high police officers wearing General stars?

12-18 months before he eats his firearm.

Just goes to once again show that training is worthless if you are an unmotivated coward. James Yeager call your office.

This galls me to no end. More so than having Sergeants and Lieutenants as ranks, but I don't care for them either.

Like this asshat, or any other, is walking around thinking they are the equivalent or contemporary of Leahy, Nimitz, Halsey, Puller, Bradley, etc.
