Elder Patriot – As evidence continues to surface following the shooting rampage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas H.S. more questions have been raised about Broward Country Sheriff Scott Israel than have been answered.
- Why did the first three or four of his deputies to arrive at the scene huddle outside the school instead of rushing to the aid of the besieged students?
- What is the sheriff’s relationship with violent Muslim radicals that we raised questions about yesterday?
Now questions about Sheriff Israel’s official timeline have arisen in the aftermath of MSD HS teacher, Stacy Lippel’s interview with ABC’s Good Morning America.
“I suddenly saw the shooter about twenty feet in front of me standing at the end of the hallway actively shooting down the hallway, just a barrage of bullets, and I’m staring at him thinking why are the police here, this is strange because he’s in full metal garb, helmet, face mask, bulletproof armor, shooting this rifle that I’ve never seen before.” – Stacy Lippel
Now let’s take a look at Sheriff Israel’s official timeline as reported more than 24 hours later by ABC affiliate Local 10 News:
2:19 p.m. – Uber driver drops off Nikolas Cruz at the school at 5901 NW Pine Island Road in Parkland.
2:21 p.m. – Cruz enters the east stairwell with a rifle inside a black soft case. He exits the stairwell after pulling the rifle out of the case.
2:21:33 p.m. – Cruz begins shooting at classrooms 1215, 1216 and 1214.
Here is a map of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas campus.
- The pin drop marks the location that Cruz was dropped off by his Uber driver.
Now let’s return to the official timeline as illustrated by CNN:
At 2:19 p.m., a gold-colored Uber vehicle dropped Nikolas Cruz off at the school he once attended. A school employee recognized him and alerted a colleague that the former student was “walking purposefully” toward a school building.
“Walking purposefully,” not running. That means that within two minutes Cruz walked the length of two buildings, put on full body armor (if Stacy Lippel’s account is correct), readied his rifle, triggered a fire alarm, and began shooting.
That’s a whole lot that has to happen in two minutes. The timeline makes a lot more sense is the person in full body armor wasn’t Nikolas Cruz but a second shooter who has not been identified.
A student who was interviewed in the immediate aftermath of the shootings certainly believed that there had been second shooter:
Maybe the timeline offered by Sheriff Israel is inaccurate but so much of everything that Israel has said in the aftermath has been agenda driven that he’s become unbelievable.
There is no contention from this corner that the killings and carnage are real. So are Sheriff Israel’s past relationships with radical Islamists and his strident gun control agenda in the wake of this tragedy.
Why hasn’t the possibility that Cruz had become radicalized been addressed especially following this Instagram post?
Was there a second shooter? If so, who was it?
Since President Trump’s election we have become acutely aware of the extent of corruption that Obama sycophants at every level of the government, and in the mainstream media and Hollywood, have been prepared to go to destroy Donald Trump, end the Second Amendment, and to promote the spread of Islam in America. It’s as though no level of deception or illegality is off the board.
What aren’t we being told?
