Broward Sheriff’s Office Wouldn’t Let Emergency Personnel Help The Shooting Victims
EMT says the first responders were blocked from attending to the wounded at Parkland, Florida high school.
It’s really hard to clear the scene when you’re hiding outside. All this makes us wonder during the next school shooting incident if there will be a rush of armed parents trying to save their children?
Here we have the sheriff waging war against lawful gun owners, and yet it was his department’s many failures that allowed this to happen in the first place.
Three high-ranking Florida officials close to the law enforcement response at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School tell Fox News there was a delay in Emergency Medical Service getting into the school in the critical moments after Nikolas Cruz allegedly opened fire, killing 17 people and wounding at least 14 others.
Two separate sources told Fox News some of the EMS teams who requested to enter the school were told they could not. One source said it was the Broward County Sheriff’s Office – which was the commanding office – that ordered some of the EMS crews not to go into the school when they requested to enter.
“What’s going to come out is, in the communications on several circumstances, there was the request to enter… the request was denied from Broward County,” a Florida official told Fox News.
“When you have a police agency saying we don’t want you going in, that’s a problem,” another Florida official said. “The training since Columbine has been [that]first responders, police go in immediately with paramedics.” More
It’s time to stop all the finger pointing and start fixing all the problems.
Boy oh Boy! Another Sheriff’s Dept (under amazing leadership according to Sheriff Israel) Profile in Cowardice.
EMT crews wanted to go into help regardless of danger. Sheriff won’t let it happen.
Just how pissed would you be? Your Daughter, Your Son?

To compound the ineptitude of the Sheriff and some of the “strange” details surrounding events, it’s now come out that he denied the EMS teams access to the wounded students…ignoring the golden minutes after injury.https://t.co/0EvNarEOMW

No choice but for Sheriff Israel to go. Now we know EMS was delayed going in. Probably cost lives. This Sheriff should not be in a job protecting citizens. https://t.co/vwp9OHYjGy
