Recently obtained police logs confirm a captain from the Broward County Sheriff’s Department ordered her deputies to form a secure perimeter surrounding the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School instead of engaging with the shooter; raising even more questions over the agency’s response to the deadly mass shooting earlier this month.
The shocking new report obtained by the Miami Herald late Thursday evening shows the Sheriff’s office captain who “initially took charge of the chaotic scene” ordered a defensive perimeter; an order they obeyed instead of “going in to confront the shooter.”
A spokesperson from the BSO confirmed their office was investigating the response to the deadly shooting in southern Florida, adding “If detectives had answers to all of the questions, then there would be no need for an investigation.”
The new revelations raise even more questions surrounding federal and local law enforcement’s response to the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.
The FBI is also under increased scrutiny in recent week, ignoring multiple red flags and two highly specific tips just weeks before Nikolas Cruz opened fire at his former high school; killing seventeen people and injuring scores more.
LATE NIGHT LECTURE: Jimmy Kimmel MOCKS ‘MENTALLY ILL’ Trump After Florida Shooting
Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel took his war against President Trump to a new level Thursday night, slamming the Commander-in-Chief as “mentally ill” following the devastating school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
The liberal comic viciously attacked the President while commenting on the tragedy that took place earlier this week, when seventeen individuals lost their lives after a 19-year old former student opened fire at a local high school.
“You’ve literally done nothing,” said Kimmel. “Actually, you’ve done worse than nothing. You like to say this is a mental health issue. One of your very first acts as president, Mr. Trump, was to actually roll back the regulations that were designed to keep firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill.”
“You did that. Your party voted to repeal the mandates on coverage for mental health. So, I agree, this is a mental illness issue, because if you don’t think we need to do something about it, you’re obviously mentally ill,” he added.

BROWARD BOMBSHELL: Florida Governor ORDERS PROBE as Sheriff REFUSES to Resign
Governor Rick Scott is opening an official probe into the Broward County Sheriff’s Department over their mishandling of the deadly school shooting that rocked southern Florida earlier this month; demanding answers as Sheriff Scott Israel refuses to resign.
Scott formally requested the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to launch an investigation into the agency on Sunday night, saying there needs to be an “immediate” inquiry following reports four Deputies refused to enter the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during and after the attack.
“I have asked for FDLE to immediately investigate the law enforcement response and will continue to review this matter as more facts come out. There must be an independent investigation and that is why I asked the FDLE Commissioner to immediately start this process,” said Scott’s statement.
The Governor’s request comes as Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel refuses to resign in the wake of his department’s botched response; telling CNN’s Jake Tapper he’s “given amazing leadership to this agency” and that you “don’t measure a person’s leadership by a deputy not going in.”
