A Parkland shooting survivor is holding people accountable, and it’s NOT the NRA

What was all that BS you were spouting about the NRA, Sheriff Israel?

Not long after 17 people were killed and many more injured at a high school in Parkland, Florida, the nation’s most shameless sheriff went on CNN and pointed the finger of blame at the NRA, immune to any pangs of self-awareness:

What an ass. That shameless Sheriff Israel turned out to be projecting big time. One student who protected others during the shooting (while being shot five times himself) has called out Israel big time:

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting victim Anthony Borges and his family held a news conference in Plantation Friday evening where he blamed BSO Sheriff Scott Israel and Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie for failing students and faculty.

“To Sheriff Israel of the Broward Sheriff’s Office and Robert Runcie, the Superintendent of schools in Broward, I want to thank you for visiting me at the hospital, but I want to say that both of you failed us, students, teachers and parents alike, on so many levels,” read his attorney Alex Arreaza.

Arreaza said Anthony, 15, lays blame for the shooting at the feet of Sheriff Israel and Runcie for not doing more to prevent self-confessed gunman Nikolas Cruz from being able to be in the school that day.

Borges’ statement says school officials allowed Cruz to continue attending school even after realizing he was dangerous.

“I want to ask you today to end your policy and agreement that you will not arrest people committing crimes in our school,” Anthony said in the statement.

What was all that BS you were spouting about the NRA, Sheriff Israel? That said, guess which story isn’t going to catch fire with the mainstream media? They’ve got a narrative to help push, and this doesn’t fit.

The fact that Israel still has a job unfortunately goes to show that somebody’s not entirely serious about fixing these internal problems.
