Trigger warning, this is a very long blog post from "Gun Free Zone".  Don't be put off by the name, it's a pro-RKBA site for those who may not be familiar.

"The Sun Sentinel deserves every award for its coverage of the failures of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, School Board, and the county administration as a whole following the Parkland Shooting.

The latest report really illustrates the level of failure of the county.  I will post as much as I can here, but you really should see the Sun Sentinel’s interactive map of the shooting.

I will warn you, take a blood thinner before you read this.  I will not be held responsible for any heart attacks or strokes had from the following post.

The very title of the report couldn’t make the situation in Broward any more clear.

Two decades after Columbine and five years after Sandy Hook, educators and police still weren’t ready for Parkland.

Brace yourself, there are no minced words here."

Peterson should be charged with accessory to murder, complete failure to abide by his oath, and suffer the consequences (severe) if found guilty.

Consequences include significant jail time, complete forfeiture of his pension (all of it being turned over to the victims' families), and incarceration in the general population.

Cruz is gonna die. The tragedy is it will take 20+ years to get through all the legal bullshit.

It’s also at Greg Ellifritz’ awesome with his thoughts.  Greg is a lieutenant in a police department in a suburb of Cincinnati OH.  He’s got some great insights, and I highly recommend his site.

You can tell the difference in training in how the Coral Springs Police responded versus how BCSO responded.

I'm betting at some point Parkland will reconsider who they contract with for police services.

That Sheriff's Office Captain and her lack of action or the fact she didn't take command of the scene is just jaw dropping.
