Perhaps Not All “Failures” in the Florida School Shooting Were What We Think

One thing is certain. Every time there is a mass shooting or a mass killing event, there are always more questions left unanswered than answered to most people’s satisfaction. It is no different with events in Parkland, Florida.

Let’s take a look at a USA Today article written by Glenn Reynolds called “Florida shooting yet another government failure to keep us safe.

Before we completely blame the government for failures, isn’t it time to point out, again, that there is a huge failure of the public to look to government to keep us safe? Enough said.

Have we turned on our self-appointed “heroes” in law enforcement? It seems that after 9-11 cops and first responders could do no wrong…with a few exceptions.

Glenn Reynolds rightfully, in my opinion, describes all the failures that took place before, during, and after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass murder in Parkland, Florida. He writes: “From the FBI, to local law enforcement, to the schools, everyone failed. There was failure early, there was failure in the middle, and there was failure late. And no one has taken responsibility.”

It’s difficult to deny any of this. But let me raise some questions that might hold meaning to what is precisely going on that few know about and the majority refuses to consider.

Reynolds presents to readers, whether intended or not, a common theme. “We have more government, at all levels, than we’ve ever had before. Yet failures like this keep happening. The FBI, after all, missed the Tsarnaevs (who committed the Boston Marathon bombing) despite being warned by the Russian government. It missed the 9/11 attacks even though it was investigating Zacarias Moussaoui — agents investigating Moussaoui hit so many roadblocks that they joked that Osama bin Laden must have had a mole in the Bureau HQ. And, of course, the San Bernardino shooters and Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen escaped the net as well.

Is the FBI really this incompetent? I thought they were everyone’s “heroes” looking out for you.

As Reynolds points out in his writing, “…Then, when Cruz finally began shooting up the school, the failures became even more outrageous. A Broward County sheriff’s deputy — weirdly, the same Deputy Scot Peterson who apparently ignored the Instagram threat and also refused to cooperate with investigators — was on the scene, but cowered in the parking lot instead of taking action.”

He also adds something from CNN: “Then CNN reported that not only did Peterson stay out of the building, three other deputies hid behind cars instead of intervening.”

Again I ask, I thought these guys were all “heroes” to you?

But, seriously. I have never thought it was ever a good idea that we, in honest attempts to prevent living in a police state, should idolize those in uniform with guns and authority that can make our lives miserable in the wink of an eye. With this thought, I must say I would be one of the last to defend law enforcement.

Having said so, are we to believe that 4 police officers were afraid to enter the building and that 3 of them “hid behind cars?” I don’t buy that story. Cops may be many things to many people but generally speaking, they are not chicken to walk into a battle scene. With probably the rare exception, cops become cops for the very nature of what they do. They love a position of authority over others and relish the opportunity to live up to their billing of “hero.”

If I’m correct, then why didn’t they enter the building and/or try to do something to stop the further bloodshed?

As more stories surface, for whatever value they have, we hear the same things we have heard in the mass killings noted above: Officers waited outside; ordered to stand down; eye-witnesses claiming there was more than one gunman; one student claimed to walk out of the school with alleged murderer Nicholas Cruz, etc.

Perhaps all those stories are a bunch of bull pucky…or they are all true – perhaps some are true. We will never know.

So at least can we ask the obvious (to me) questions?

Question One – Is our FBI so inept that they have nothing more to show for our billions in tax dollars than failure after failure? It seems they can report they found a fly that came to America from Russia on the ass end of a horse, programmed to “fix” our elections, but they can’t properly investigate all the events that led up to the mass murders named above?

I don’t buy that horse manure either.

So, a combination of supposed chicken cops in Parkland, Florida and an FBI so incompetent it probably fails to keep toilet paper on hand in their offices, we are being told is a simple failure. Hmmm, I wonder.

Question Two – Who knew what, when, and from whom did they know it? Did the FBI, as with all the other mass killing events, know beforehand and/or were a part of those events? Were the “chicken” cops only doing what they were told to do because someone higher up was also under orders?

Question Three – If this was a conspiracy of some sort, what might a reason be? The simple answer would be guns. I have contended for many years that the only and last roadblock to total tyranny and a dictatorial rule is guns. I’ve also said they still aren’t in a position to simply take our guns from us. Instead, they must find other ways, little by little.

Remember? It was on September 11, 2012, when “terrorists” attacked the U.S. Diplomat Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, killing the ambassador and others. What was the first thing out of the mouths of our corrupt government terrorists? Remember? It was a video said to be mocking Islam and that “provoked” an attack. I thought we learned a lesson from that but evidently not.

What was the first thing out of the mouths of many after the Parkland, Florida shooting? Damned the NRA! All attention was deflected onto the NRA, that iconic false strongarm of the Second Amendment. The NRA provoked an innocent attack on students. Nothing else is to blame. It was a choreographed deflection as was the video used in the Benghazi attack.

Question Four – How many more of these events will it take before you will either become a complete slave with no rights left to you, or you will demand answers to uncomfortable questions?

If nothing more than choosing to take the easy way out and accept the all-around failures of governments theory, then people might want to consider who it is that they choose to make their idols and heroes.

Stupid is as stupid does.
