Broward County sheriff’s department already had a massive PR disaster on their hands after being labeled as “cowards” after the Parkland, FL shooting, but now they’re facing more scrutiny.
Someone with the appropriate power needs to fire the leader of that department (Sheriff Israel) and just start over fresh before another incident of any kind occurs and their deputies are once again set up for total and utter failure…
On Tuesday, a Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy who was supposed to be patrolling Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after last month’s deadly shooting was suspended after he was caught sleeping on the job in his patrol car.
Local 10 reports:
Veda Coleman-Wright, a spokeswoman for the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, said Deputy Moises Carotti was suspended with pay, pending an internal affairs investigation.
Coleman-Wright said just after 5 p.m. Monday a student told another deputy on the campus that Carotti was asleep in his marked patrol car near the 1200 building, the site of the mass shooting that left 17 people dead last month.
What is even more disturbing is the fact that only 30 minutes before Carotti was found sleeping on duty, “other deputies arrested [the brother of the school shooter], for trespassing.”
Also on Tuesday, three additional students were arrested at the school, two for bringing weapons to school and a third for allegedly making serious threats online “showing a gun and bullets.”
