I believe heíll get off because the prosecution has overcharged and is looking for a scapegoat.

Strikes me as an abuse of prosecutorial discretion.

Why do I say that, I have been around cops my whole adult life. Maybe not all would defy orders but I know I would have and most of my friends would have given an active shooter at a school.

As far as FDLE, I have ZERO FAITH in that organozation and trust me I have an intimate history with them.

I disagree with him being a scapegoat. He isnít being accused of inactions of others......rather his own inactions.

Now will they arrest anyone from the FBI and other agencies that failed to act on the information they received?
good point

Thank you. I agree. I am not trained as a LEO, but very trained as a parent. If children are in danger, its me against whoever. Be safe.

I also think that the all the public scrutiny with an upcoming trial might cause this officer to kill himself thereby adding to the death toll of that horrible day.

if he was a true public servant he would have acted in a much different manner, radio for backup, locate, and rush the shooter. He is a far cry from a public servant, retirement and pension was on his mind.. The words public servant, and hero get used a little to loosely these days. He will be convicted of some crime as should the public servant Scott Israel. And while you are at it throw in the 120 year old supervisor of elections, another public servant.

Ain't none of us know what we will do when the chit hits the fan and automatic gunfire is happening until it actually does happen. Easy to say what others should do. Some folks have a natural instinct to charge into the gunfire, but not all will react that way.

It was BSO Captain Jan Jordan that ordered a perimeter set up and never told deputies to go in...

You are right. Most of us go to work with a tie on, or to sit in a lab, or to build someting, etc. The day I let the public pay me to go to work in a bulletproof vest and a gun, I will use them as needed.

Itís my understanding he worked for the school in some kind of protection/security position, putting an unusual spin other than just responding to a call.

Also he lied, saying he didnít know where the shots were coming from, however he radioed the building number several times during the event

No, as far as I know....Again, this is why I say it was an Agency failure not just one lowly deputy....

We all must make our own decisions but not going in and hearing active shooting knowing that children or people were present and being hurt, is a non decision for me.

Thank you for your commitment, professionalism and dedication.

One deputy failed to act, what about the school and mental health system failing to act? Are they going to. charge them? They are the ones that could have prevented this terrible tragedy

Agreed. It will be tossed. It is shameful that the officer did not do anything, but I agree with the supreme court decision.

Don't forget the FBI was notified multiple times that this person was threatening a school shooting.

WTF how can you agree with that decision, you think their job is to write tickets and collect a pension?
What exactly does protect and serve mean?
