'Genius' sheriff hammered over shooting-back policy - WND

Ten months after the school massacre in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 students and staff dead, the sheriff of Broward County where the incident took place says policy is being changed to require officers to try to confront active shooters, instead of leaving it optional.
In reaction to the change, Sheriff Scott Israel is being pummeled on social media by many wondering why such a shooting-back policy was not in effect before the Valentine’s Day tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
On Twitter, some comments include:

On Saturday, the local newspaper, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, analyzed the events of last February and noted:
“Israel comes across as a politician who is quick to defend and slow to punish despite mounting evidence of problems.
“Eight sheriff’s deputies stood outside Stoneman Douglas listening to gunshots inside. The sheriff’s own policies allowed deputies to decide for themselves whether to go in and confront the killer. Deputies claimed they couldn’t remember specifics of how they’d been trained for an active shooter. The commander at the scene appeared ‘dream-like’ and overwhelmed. Tips warning about the shooter Nikolas Cruz’s plans were mishandled. And police radios, a problem for years, froze and left cops unable to communicate.”

Israel defended himself to the Sun-Sentinel, saying, “I’m certainly responsible for everything that goes on at the agency, good or bad,” Israel said. “But as I’ve said before, the only person responsible for the deaths of those individuals and shooting 17 other people is the killer.”
The sheriff’s elected term expires in 2020, and he’s adamant about not leaving office voluntarily.
“As I’ve said before, I’ve done nothing wrong,” he said. “I’m not considering resigning or anything like that. I will remain the sheriff as long as the people of Broward County want me.”
He is a Democrat and Democrats are STINKG-kers. There is no metro area that I know of that functions properly and they are nearly all under the control of Democrats.
Democrats shouldn't exist. They should be banished.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances; except that no philosophy or design antithetical to the First Principles upon which this republic stands shall be vested in the offices of government, nor in the laws proceeding therefrom.
There! I FIXED it!
LIBERTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATEDemocrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
