Whereas last month’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has resulted in a series of rallies and protests calling for more gun laws, a series of occurrences have taken place at that school. Such occurrences are as follows:
• Broward County Deputy Sheriff Moises Carotti, who was given the task of protecting the school, had been seen taking a nap in his police car on March 19. As a result, he was suspended the following day.
• The same day that Carotti was caught napping while on the job, Zachary Cruz (the brother of the gunman Nikolas Cruz) had ventured onto school property despite being repeatedly told not to. He was then arrested for trespassing. Zachary Cruz supposedly had visited the school to “reflect on the shooting and soak it in.”
• On March 20, a student named Jordan Salter was arrested after she displayed a knife during an altercation. It all started when a male student asked one of her friends a sexually offensive question, in which Salter dumped cereal on his head. When it looked like the male student was going to retaliate towards Salter, she pulled a knife out of her bra and displayed it in an apparent attempt to defend herself or at least scare him off (which might explain why she brought the knife to school in the first place).
• Also on March 20, another student named Gavin Stricker was arrested after the police learned he had displaying a knife on the bus the previous day and found a knife in his backpack. Apparently he brought the knife to school as a means of self-defense.
• An unnamed student had posted photos of himself on Snapchat with a gun in his waistband and images of bullets. In addition, the photos had the words “catch me if you can n*****” and one photo made references to another student named Josh. He apparently even used the name NickCruz for his Snapchat page. He was arrested, then hospitalized for a mental health evaluation.
But the excitement in Broward County this past week was not confined to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. On March 19, a woman named Lasandra Johnson drove her accelerant-packed car into a Broward County Sheriff’s substation. Fortunately, the only people hurt were an employee at the substation and Johnson herself (who was taken to the hospital and is being charged with burglary and arson).
Considering Johnson is a devout Muslim with ties to radical mosques in South Florida, that vehicular jihad is becoming more of a frequent occurrence these days, and that a similar incident took place at Travis Air Force Base on March 21, it is a good bet that this was an act of jihad.
However, neither the Broward County Sheriff’s Office nor the media see it that way. Maybe it is because one of the Broward County deputy sheriffs named Nezar Hamze, who is involved with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Thus, political correctness has taken root in this incident.
In conclusion, I would say that Broward County is in need of better leadership, and that would include a new sheriff.
