Anonymous Conservative believes they were ordered to do so:
A report released Friday claims four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the attack was occurring.
On February 22 Breitbart News reported that one deputy resigned after it was learned that he was on scene but failed to control Nikolas Cruz. Sheriff Israel told ABC 13 that video shows the deputy, Scott Peterson, “arrive at the west side of Building 12” and “take a position” outside the school — but never go inside. The sheriff’s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place.
Now CNN reports that the Coral Springs police officers claim three other Broward County deputies were outside the school but failed to go inside as well. They quote “Coral Springs sources” who said the three “deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehicles” when Coral Springs officers arrived. They said “not one of [the deputies] had gone into the school.”
The sources indicate other Broward County deputies arrived on scene, and two of those new arrivals joined with Coral Springs officers and entered the building.
Here is what happened. When this was organized, Deep State arranged for their deputies to be on duty in that sector, and they had orders to stand down.
While only the acting man can definitively explain the reason for his actions, Occam’s Razor suggests that in this particular situation, AC’s explanation is the one that is most likely to be correct. If the three other Broward County deputies fail to resign, or even be identified, that will tend to support his belief that they were simply following their orders.
The Broward County (((Sheriff))) confirms as much. He has taken the public position that he not only did his job, but did it very well indeed by providing “amazing leadership”.
“I’ve exercised my due diligence, I’ve led this county proudly as I always have,” he said. “We have restricted that deputy as we look in to it. You know, deputies make mistakes, police officers make mistakes, we all make mistakes, but it’s not the responsibility of the general or the president, if you have a deserter. You look into this. We’re looking into this aggressively, and we’ll take care of it and justice will be served.”
“Are you really not taking any responsibility for the multiple red flags that were brought to the attention of the Broward Sheriff’s Office about this shooter before the incident?” Tapper asked.
“Jake, I can only take responsibility for what I knew about. I exercised my due diligence. I’ve given amazing leadership to this agency—” Israel started.
“Amazing leadership? Tapper asked incredulously.
“Yes, Jake. There’s a lot of things we’ve done throughout this—this is—you don’t measure a person’s leadership by a deputy not going into these deputies received the training they needed—One person didn’t do what he should have done,” Israel said.
That confirms that one of the four deputies didn’t do what he should have done, but the other three did. Ergo, they were ordered by the Sheriff to stand down and not interfere with whoever was doing the shooting at the school.
