The only armed sheriff’s deputy at a Florida high school where 17 people were killed took cover outside rather than charging into the building when the massacre began, the Broward County sheriff said on Thursday. The sheriff also acknowledged that his office received 23 calls related to the suspect going back a decade, including one last year that said he was collecting knives and guns, but may not have adequately followed up. The deputy, Scot Peterson, resigned on Thursday after being suspended without pay after Sheriff Scott Israel reviewed surveillance video. “He never went in,” Sheriff Israel said in a news conference. He said the video showed Deputy Peterson doing “nothing.” “There are no words,” said Sheriff Israel, who described himself as “devastated, sick to my stomach.” #freethinker#freethinkers
There's a new floor there's a pathway through the grass. The grass is not growing yet it has already grown the grass is always growing. / The rooms beyond rooms grow lanterns, push curtains aside, have steady gazes. / I knocked all the scenery down, I told you I could fly, I looked you in the eye. / My body is a blazing fire, a stubborn refusal, a rich defiance. My body is as calm and cool as grass.
