Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School – Things just keep piling up around the Parkland shooting. Three students were arrested on Tuesday, two for bringing knives to school, and one for making online threats. And a Broward County deputy on duty at the time that Zachary Cruz managed to evade all the security was found sleeping in his patrol car. He has been suspended.
Moises Carotti was seen sleeping in his patrol vehicle by a student, who quickly notified another deputy on duty at the school. He was reported asleep shortly after 5:00 p.m.. Zachary Cruz was found trespassing on the school campus at 4:30 p.m.. (We previously reported that arrest here.) He was reportedly supposed to cover Building 12, where the shooting took place.
On Tuesday, Gov Rick Scott called for armed guards at every entrance to the school. Hopefully, they’ll be awake armed guards. Sen Marco Rubio was incredulous at the news, and said, “Of all the schools in America, you would think this would be the safest one right now.”
Apparently not, Senator. Two students were arrested after they brought knives onto the school grounds. And another was arrested for posting an online threat.
Well, geez. Students with knives, a deputy sleeping in his car, another student posting pics with a gun and threatening messages – what is going on at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school?https://t.co/zBBwxHWNkj
