The Sun Sentinel out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida isn’t buying the Broward County BS. Here are two hard-hitting articles about the political failures that killed their high school students in Parkland, Florida.
They failed then.
Unprepared and Overwhelmed
“Two decades after Columbine and five years after Sandy Hook, educators and police still weren’t ready for Parkland.
“Failures by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office and school district cost children their lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.”
They are failing now.
What’s being done to stop another school shooting?
“Once he decided to shoot up a school, there wasn’t much to stop Nikolas Cruz.
“His threats were ignored, the campus was wide open, the school doors were unlocked and students had nowhere to hide.
“What has changed?”
I know what best practice looks like, and what Broward County did wasn’t close to it.
Here is another tragic story. Broward County government officials hired a PR firm before the recent elections. That paid off. Broward county voters looked the other way in November and re-elected the same public officials whose failure led to the death of these children.
In the face of that denial, some parents simply left the county or the state. You can’t fix stupid, but you don’t have to let stupid control your children’s lives. -RM
