Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gaultieri chairman of the MSD Commission investigating the horrific shooting at that school last year launched into the LE response.
This is the one we’ve been waiting for. On the second day of the hearings the LE response was laid bare. The net result, a terrific failure by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office to address this critical incident.
As the data was presented the audience held their hands over their faces, chewed their nails or sat perfectly still.
Special attention was paid to the School Resource Deputy, scot peterson and capt. jan jordan, the incident commander.
Peterson failed to react to the shooter by taking up a defensive position outside of the building. Capt. jordan was described as “ineffective” and “in a dreamlike state.”
Any cop, from a prob to a seasoned veteran knows that active shooters require immediate action to meet and “neutralize” the threat. This did not happen.
The parent of one of the victims addressed the Commission by saying, “Here’s my concern. I’ve lost my belief in heroes, because they didn’t show up on the day I needed them most.”
We’ll take another look at this later.
