Elder Patriot – From a Huff Po recap of the CNN “town hall.”
“During a heated CNN-hosted town hall event on Wednesday night, National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch told survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting that she was “fighting” for them. But Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel was quick to shut her down.
“Interrupting Loesch’s response to a question about assault weapons, Israel stressed that she was “not standing up” for survivors of gun violence.
“I understand that you’re standing up for the NRA … but you just told this group of people that you’re standing up for them,” he said. “You are not standing up for them until you say, ‘I want less weapons.’”
Now multiple law enforcement veterans are coming forward to challenge Sheriff Israel’s account of the events of that fateful day including Scot Peterson, the armed resource officer who Israel hung out to dry.
Yesterday, Peterson’s attorney Joseph A. DiRuzzo, III, released a statement that throws Israel’s entire narrative about that day into question. Perhaps this will force the Sheriff to release the video recordings from the cameras that are located throughout the school’s different buildings, as well as the ones that focus on the campus’ outdoor areas.
For Peterson’s full statement go to the Channel 7 WSVN News website. Following are some excerpts relevant to this discussion:
(WSVN) – To the South Florida Community & the American Public:
“Mr. Peterson is confident that his actions on that day were appropriate under the circumstances and that the video (together with the eye-witness testimony of those on the scene) will exonerate him of any sub-par performance.
Sheriff Israel has indicated that the video may never be released to the public, but then commentated on the very same video to allege that Mr. Peterson took up a position on the west side of the building, but that Mr. Peterson never went in the building. Sheriff Israel’s statement is, at best, gross oversimplification of the events that transpired. Sheriff Israel’s February 22nd statement conveniently omitted the following facts1 for the public’s consideration:
Mr. Peterson initially “received a call of firecrackers – and not gunfire – in the area of the 1200 Building.”
In response to the firecracker call Mr. Peterson along “with Security Specialist Kelvin Greenleaf exited the 100 Building and ran north the couple of hundred yards to the 1200 Building.”
Upon arriving at 1200 Building Mr. Peterson “heard gunshots but believed that those gunshots were originating from outside of any of the buildings on the school campus.”
Mr. Peterson was the first BSO officer to advise BSO dispatch that he heard shots fired. Mr. Peterson “initiated a ‘Code Red’ lockdown of the entire school campus.”
“Radio transmissions indicated that there was a gunshot victim in the area of the football field,” which served to confirm Mr. Peterson’s belief “that the shooter, or shooters, were outside.”
WAT? Who is Kelvin Greenleaf and why hasn’t his name surfaced before? How does MSD HS define “security specialist?” What does Greenleaf have to add to this?
More importantly, Deputy Peterson’s account of the events seems to be confirmed by the reports from Coral Springs Police Officer Sergeant Jeff Heinrich who had been watering the baseball field when the shooting started.
According to Heinrich he heard the fire alarm followed by gunfire.
He recalled that he immediately dropped what he was doing and ran towards the school when he came upon a youngster who had been shot through the ankle. He brought the young man to the baseball clubhouse where he used the first aid kit that was there to administer triage.
Heinrich’s account would seem to confirm that a shooting likely took place outside. Take a look at the following pictures:
If the shooter was acting alone and, according to the official timeline:
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.
Then how did the shooting victim that Officer Heinrich intercepted on his dash to the school make his way across two buildings in the same time that Officer Heinrich was able to cover the approximately two hundred yards from the baseball field to the western edge of the school – where Peterson said he had taken up position.
The more likely scenario is that after Nikolas Cruz was dropped off where the pin shows Uber dropped him, he took up position and shot someone on the football field or between the football field and the west side of the adjacent building – after the fire alarm went off.
It would also explain why Peterson took up position on the west side of the building.
Then there was MSD HS teacher, Stacy Lippel’s recount of events to 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
And, this accounting by one of the survivors:
Both of these eyewitness accounts certainly lend credence to a second shooter theory.
That would explain Scot Peterson’s statement that “Radio transmissions indicated that there was a gunshot victim in the area of the football field.”
Again, this would also explain why he took up position on the west side of the building.
It would be impossible for a lone shooter to have fired from a position on the west side of the two structures after the fire alarm sounded and then made his way to the east side stairwell, put on full body armor and begin shooting on the east side of the eastern most building, simultaneously – also after the fire alarm had been triggered.
It’s a question worth asking: was the fire alarm used as a signal by a kill team to trigger the carnage?
That should be easy enough to prove if Sheriff Israel would just release the videos captured by the schools CCTV cameras.
The longer Sheriff Israel refuses to release the videos the more it’s looking like Dana Loesch was the only one on that CNN stage fighting for the victims.
It certainly wasn’t Scott Israel who is beginning to look more and more like he is covering for another false flag attack.
