Florida school shooting: Armed officer failed to confront gunman

Politicians under pressure to tighten gun laws in response to the slayings floated various plans Thursday, but most fell short of reforms demanded by student activists who converged Wednesday on Florida's Capitol. They held signs, chanted slogans and burst into lawmakers' offices demanding to be heard.

"The governor's plan doesn't do one thing to ensure comprehensive criminal background checks or ban assault rifles, like the AR-15", Nelson said in a statement.

The data - which said Cruz had blades and a BB weapon - was sent to Peterson, who was working at the school in those days.

"They kept us from moving toward the house", WSVN-TV's Frank Guzman tweeted. You are so strong.

About 100 students from the high school made the 400-mile (640-kilometer) trip on three buses. "We know what we want".

She added: "We've had enough of thoughts and prayers".

"We're what's making the change". We are coming after you. Students and parents can return for a voluntary campus orientation on Sunday afternoon.

Pires discussed Sanchez's departure with Marca and said he would never have considered making a similar switch. And yet all 11 players in blue - as the away kit was used at home - seemed to believe they could do just that.


"Addressed the killer. Killed the killer", the sheriff said. The shooting galvanized students to lead nationwide protests against gun violence in America. I've been to the homes where they're sitting shiva.

Israel's description of Peterson as an armed, trained officer who was present for a mass killing but did not confront the shooter also comes as President Trump, in response to the Parkland massacre, has suggested arming teachers as a way to deter possible threats, while the National Rifle Association has also pushed for more armed guards in schools. Those students will be going to different classrooms in the other buildings.

The school resource officer on February 14 took up a position viewing the western entrance of that building for more than four minutes after the shooting started, but "he never went in", Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said at a news conference.

The Broward County School Board has chose to tear down the building where the shooting occurred and replace it with a memorial.

"Miami-Dade Schools Police thoroughly investigated this incident, and although the student's actions clearly demonstrated a lack of judgment, they did not constitute a threat", school district spokesperson John Schuster said via email. It's unclear what role he played in the shooting. Some are anxious to go back and others are uncertain of their safety, Fusco said. "They hate individual freedom", Mr LaPierre said.

"I don't want to send him to school", Crawford said.

Stoneman Douglas teacher Jim Gard is nervous about returning to campus, but hopes for unity through it all. "They should be strictly for military" purposes.

Nikolas Cruz, a 19-year-old former student at the school, has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder. Cruz owned a collection of weapons.

Scott proposed a $450 million initiative for student safety, calling for the presence of a resource officer in every public school and giving sheriffs' departments the power "to train additional school personnel or reserve law enforcement officers" if local school boards ask.

Negron did not answer directly. "We're asking to help save student lives", he said.

Florida lawmakers have rebuffed gun restrictions since Republicans took control of both the governor's office and the Legislature in 1999.

Peterson was named school resource officer of the year in the city of Parkland in 2014, after he had been with the school for five years, records show. The deputy referred the caller to the Palm Beach Sheriff's Office. Legislators may also enact a waiting period for rifle purchases.
