A school resource officer assigned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., remained outside of the high school when a shooter opened fire on students and teachers last week and did not engage the shooter.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said video footage showed the deputy, Scot Peterson, arrive on the west side of the high school’s freshman building and take up a position. Peterson, though, did not enter the school.

Israel said Peterson was armed and in uniform but did “nothing.”

“What I saw was a deputy arrive at the west side of Building 12, take up a position and he never went in,” Israel said.”

When asked what Peterson should have done, Israel said the deputy should have, “Went in, addressed the killer, killed the killer.”

“Devastated. Sick to my stomach. There are no words,” Israel told reporters Thursday.

The video showing Peterson will not be disclosed at this time, and Israel said it may never be made public “depending on the prosecution and the criminal case.”

Israel said he suspended Peterson without pay pending an internal investigation, but Peterson then resigned.

Seventeen people were killed and more than a dozen were injured in the shooting at the Parkland, Fla., school last week. Ex-student Nikolas Cruz, 19, has been identified as the shooting suspect and has admitted to opening fire at the high school.

(KNOW YOUR ENEMY!) – First National Bank of Omaha: No More NRA Visas

By Awr Hawkins

On February 22 the First National Bank of Omaha announced it is responding to the gun control outcry by refusing to renew its contract for NRA Visa Cards.

Think Progress reports that that bank has offered the NRA Visa Cards for over a decade. They are ending that relationship after a 48-hour campaign of “public pressure” against the bank.

On Thursday the bank tweeted:

According to Think Progress, First National Bank of Omaha is but “one of at least 22 corporations that the NRA says offer incentives to NRA members.” The bank is the first to respond to public criticism by ending its relationship with the NRA.

 

(THIS IS WHY THEY WANT YOUR GUNS AMERICA) – Mask Slips: Tapper Silent as Town Hall Crowd Boos Rape Survivor

CNN, Jake Tapper Face Growing Criticism Over ‘Abusive’ Anti-Gun ‘Show Trial’

By John Nolte

CNN’s anti-gun town hall event and its left-wing moderator, Jake Tapper, are facing widespread criticism over what many saw as a bullying “show trial.”

Tapper is being singled out for much of the criticism from those who say he remained silent as abusive personal attacks were hurled at Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch. Incredibly, Tapper also remained silent as his audience booed a rape victim.

At the Wednesday night spectacle, those in favor of protecting our Second Amendment civil rights were vastly outnumbered by an audience packed with hostile gun-haters and emotional questioners, including children.

According to various reports, the anti-gun participants were given scripted questionscrafted by CNN. The last-place network has denied this by attacking a school shooting victim as a liar. His accusation, however, is credible given CNN’s long and disturbing history of using plants.

Throughout the hour, the audience heckled, howled, and poured derision on Loesch and Rubio. Other than admonishing his audience for calling Loesch a “murderer,” Tapper stood by in silent approval as abuse and personal attacks rained down on his outnumbered guests.

The Media Research Center writes, “Jake Tapper sat back as the wild crowd targeted … Rubio with boos and jeers… The wildest moment allowed by Tapper was when Parkland, Florida student Cameron Kasky smeared the Senator by equating him to the shooter that killed 17 of his classmates. And Tapper thanked him for all of it.”

Specifically, this is what Kasky snarled at Rubio, “Senator Rubio, it’s hard to look at you and not look down the barrel on an AR-15 and not look at Nikolas Cruz[.]”

Tapper then thanked Kasky.

Actor Adam Baldwin was one of many who compared the event to a “show trial.”

Tapper faced even more intense criticism for allowing the 17-year-old Kasky to bring Loesch’s children into the debate by attacking her as a mother.

“I wish I could have asked the NRA lady [Loesch] a question,” Kasky said to Rubio. “I would ask her how she can look in the mirror, considering the fact that she has children[.]”

As the crowd burst into cheers, Tapper muttered something about “What was that, I’m sorry?” The crowd roared on.

“Absolutely despicable behavior by Parkland student Cameron Kasky … question[ing Loesch’s] motherhood and whether she cares about her children,” tweeted Curtis Houck, managing editor of Newsbusters. “Jake Tapper does nothing. How un-American. Simply unacceptable[.]”

Houck attached video of the moment to his tweet:

Others chimed in over the left-wing Tapper’s silent approval:

Tapper, who likes to present himself as  male feminist, also chose to remain silent when the audience booed a rape survivor who now supports the Second Amendment.

Journalist Mike Cernovich compared the night to a “Two Minute Hate,” an event in George Orwell’s “1984” where the elite deflect from their own sins by allowing people to pour out their loathing and hostility on an innocent person or symbol.

CNN and Tapper, a former Democrat operative and Salon contributor, have faced growing criticism over the climate of hate (detailed here) the network frequently manufactures against Trump and his supporters, or anyone on the right — oftentimes through fake news.

For example, although debunked, Tapper continues to spread lies about Trump mocking a reporter’s disability. He also spread fake news with false claim that the president did not offer his condolences after a mosque shooting. While Tapper frequently attacks others over their tone and rhetoric, he does so while ginning up hatre against Trump by smearing the president as “un-American,” “unhinged,” and “unmoored.”

Tapper has yet to apologize for his behavior or to the rape victim, he also has not disavowed Kasky’s personal attacks or the behavior of the audience.

NRA’s Loesch: I Wouldn’t Have Been Able To Exit CNN Town Hall If I Didn’t Have A Security Detail

NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch said Thursday morning at CPAC that she wouldn’t have been able to exit last night’s town hall on the Parkland, Fla. school shooting if she didn’t have a security detail. Loesch faced off with students who survived the shooting at a CNN-hosted forum.

“I want to make this super obvious point,” Loesch said. “The government has proven that they cannot keep you safe. And yet, some people want all of us to disarm. You heard that town hall last night. They cheered the confiscation of firearms. And it was over 5,000 people.”

“I had to have a security detail to get out,” she said of the Sunland, Fla. event. “I wouldn’t be able to exit that if I didn’t have a private security detail. There were people rushing the stage and screaming burn her. And I came there to talk solutions and I still am going to continue that conversation on solutions as the NRA has been doing since before I was alive.”

Loesch said the people who call Trump a tyrant are the same people who want the president to confiscate weapons.

“The government can’t keep you safe and some people want us to give up our firearms and rely solely upon the protection of the same government that’s already failed us numerous times to keep us safe. And then they also call Trump a tyrant but they say they want the president to also confiscate our firearms? Try to figure that one out,” Loesch said.

The Left Is Exploiting Traumatized Teens To Push an Anti-Gun Agenda, and It’s Sick

Two weeks ago, Democrats were busy proposing new laws to keep teens from voluntarily eating laundry soap. Today, it’s been nearly a week since a gunman opened fire at a Florida High School, killing 17 people and wounding about a dozen more. And now suddenly, Generation Tide Pod has become the authority on gun policy over millions of law-abiding Americans who own firearms.

Florida shooting survivor: CNN gave me ‘scripted’ question for town hall, quashed question on armed guards

know your enemy!

By Gregg Re

A survivor of the Florida high school massacre said in an interview that CNN rejected his proposal to discuss armed guards in schools and instead handed him a “scripted” question to ask during Wednesday night’s town hall on gun rights.

Colton Haab, 17, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and an ROTC member, reportedly used Kevlar vests to shield students during the massacre. He said he decided not to attend the town hall after CNN presented him with the prepared question.

Screen Shot 2018-02-22 at 11.02.01 AM

“CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted,” Haab told Miami’s WPLG-TV. “I don’t think that it’s going get anything accomplished. It’s not gonna ask the true questions that all the parents and teachers and students have.

“I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinion on my questions,” he added.

The left-leaning cable news network denied the charge in a statement, saying, “There is absolutely no truth to this. CNN did not provide or script questions for anyone in last night’s town hall, nor have we ever.”

The town hall, moderated by CNN’s Jake Tapper, included shooting survivors confronting several officials on gun rights, including U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson, both of Florida, as well as National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch and Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.

The atmosphere at the event was, at times, awkward and even hostile for the Republicans, who were interrupted several times by the jeering crowd.

At one point, the audience cheered loudly when a student asked Rubio if he would pledge to cease taking donations from the NRA.

Tapper stepped in to plead with the audience to allow Rubio to answer the question.

 

(THIS IS WHY THEY WANT OUR GUNS AMERICA) – Woman Receives Abuse, Violent Threats After CNN Tracks Down, Publicly Shames Her for Sharing ‘Russian’ Event on Facebook

by CHARLIE NASH21 Feb 2018

A private citizen received online abuse after CNN tracked her down and publicly shamed her for unknowingly sharing a “Russian-coordinated event” on her Facebook page.

While filming the woman, who runs a pro-Trump page on Facebook, CNN publicly shamed her for “unwittingly” promoting a “Russian-coordinated event.”

“When you’re talking like this, I don’t want anything to do with you,” complained the woman after being repeatedly harassed by CNN’s Special Investigations Unit Reporter Drew Griffin.

Following the incident, conservative commentators criticized CNN for tracking down and attempting to publicly shame private citizens.

“Stop harassing people at their homes, you psychos!” replied conservative YouTube star Mark Dice.

Journalist Jerry Dunleavy also pointed out that CNN were duped themselves into covering alleged “Russian-generated rallies.”

After CNN published her full name, the woman received waves of abuse and harassment, with CNN consumers calling her a “stupid old hag,” a “traitor,” a “treasonous hillbilly,” “ugly,” and “racist trash.”

The woman also received violent threats, with one user warning, “stay in Florida, you come to NY and I’ll kick your Russian bot ass.”

Drew Griffin and the network have not yet confronted Michael Moore, who attended a rally allegedly organized by Russians.

In July, the cable news giant hunted down a man who posted a meme on Reddit poking fun at the network. The man publicly apologized to the network.
