WEIRD: Commanding Officer At Parkland Shooting Ordered Units To “Stage” Outside School & Not To Engage Shooter

What a bizarre situation surrounding a horrible tragedy that was apparently made much-much worse by the inaction of those trained to act in such events. The lawyers will be lining up in droves and the lawsuits will be legion over this…

EXCERPT: 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.

…One ranking Florida official close to the investigation told Fox News he and some of his colleagues have heard claims that some of the first responders at Stoneman Douglas were stalled getting inside because of bad commands.

Another source with close ties to a county and city official told Fox News a few of the responding officers on scene were very frustrated and one was brought to tears over the law enforcement response.


 

OH MY. Read The FBI Phone-Call Transcript Re: Parkland Shooter Nikolas Cruz: “I Just Think About Getting Into A School And Just Shooting The Place Up…”

How was this troubled young man NOT detained? And how is it the same agencies that failed so horribly to do their job are now, along with so many in the Establishment Media, declaring it is law-abiding citizens who must disarm?

What follows is the FBI transcript of a phone call from a woman warning the FBI that Nikolas Cruz was going to explode. She details his fascination with ISIS, his prior explosive conflicts when a student, the ongoing threats he was making to others, and her fear he will return to a school and “just start shooting the place up.”

If you read this in light of what has so recently and tragically taken place and not be outraged against those whose job it was to prevent such tragedy, you aren’t paying attention. And then ask why the media has been so slow to ask the same questions of these agencies because, given the following information, it is that horrible negligence that deserves so much of the blame. 

Reading this will break your heart and likely make you very-very angry…
