Image: Cover-up unraveling? Florida Sheriff Israel stonewalling on the release of the Parkland school shooting surveillance video


By: JD Heyes  /  Natural News

Within hours of the Feb. 14 shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School details about suspect Nikolas Cruz were already streaming out across various news and online media outlets.

We knew, for instance, that he was a troubled youth who had been expelled from the school he attacked. We knew that he was known to the local police authorities as well as the FBI. We knew virtually everything about the guns he used and owned.

Now, weeks later, what stone has been left unturned? What do we still not know?

One of the things we also know is that Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, an armed school resource officer on duty inside the school the day of the shooting, reportedly did nothing to save his young charges.

Is this why Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is stonewalling the release of surveillance video that could provide investigators with more evidence and clues regarding the massacre?

That’s what an editorial in the Sun-Sentinel newspaper is asking.

“Since the Valentine’s Day shooting” at the school “in Parkland, many government officials have walled off information needed to assess how well they did their jobs,” the editorial states.

“At the head of the pack is Broward Sheriff Scott Israel, who suggests the school’s resource officer acted cowardly during the mass shooting and two deputies mishandled earlier warnings. Aside from that, though, the sheriff wants you to take his word that he and his deputies did amazing work before, during and after the shooting,” the paper continued.

Not good enough, the editors stated. The only way to hold government officials accountable to the people who appointed or elected them is complete transparency. That means that the people are going to have to see the surveillance video for themselves — no holds barred — otherwise it’s a situation where local Floridians will have to “take the word” of a sheriff who still hasn’t explained all he should have to explain.

Like why, according to various reports, his deputies refused to enter the school as children were being killed — like the department’s protocols state. Israel has said that yeah, that’s what should have happened, but it didn’t and people want to know why. (Related: Parkland shooting survivor files suit against Broward County school district after ARMED resource officer failed to protect students.)

“The video is not the only public record sought by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel and other media organizations in the aftermath of the shooting and the epic government failure surrounding it,” the editorial noted. “Among other things, we’ve also requested copies of the 911 calls, police radio calls and incident reports from the 39 times [Broward Sheriff’s Office] deputies were called to the home of Nikolas Cruz, who’s confessed to carrying out the rampage that killed 17 and injured 17.”

The surveillance video actually just became more important. As the New York Postreports, Peterson has been caught lying about details of the shooting. He has said he believed that the shooter was outside — which is where he was — but in reality transcripts of his radio call to HQ show he knew that the shooter was inside. What’s more, the paper said, he also warned responding officers to stay away from the school as kids were being killed.

“Do not approach the 12 or 1300 building, stay at least 500 feet away,” Peterson said over the radio, according to internal radio dispatches released Thursday.

Ah. Another piece of the puzzle. But it’s still not enough.

As the Sun-Sentinel said, getting the video may indeed expose wrongdoing on the part of the Sheriff’s Department — but it could also show what may have went wrong on the part of the school. Did teachers and staff react properly? If not, why not? As for Peterson, he says the video will exonerate him, so there’s that.

The video will also highlight what went right, the editors note, making for teachable moments.

For now, though, Israel has decided that no one needs to see what really happened that day. And frankly, that’s unacceptable.

    Let’s not forget that similar crimes were going on at Las Vegas and Sandy Hook and have never been explained. These people remind me of an animal taking a dump and then just kicking some leaves and grass on it hoping it will be forgotten.

    Israel is just protecting the real killers in the Parkland shooting, the men in ‘full metal garb’ body armor with face masks, helmets and strange rifles. It has been pointed out that the real killers were likely Mossad agents or possibly a rogue FBI faction. The former are more likely because FBI agents could become reluctant to murder random USA children in cold blood:

    The FBI are known to murder USA citizens in cold blood:
    LaVoy Finicum’s Family: New Video Release Shows Police/FBI Shooting Was “Murder”
    A (half) Jewish kid, abandon by his own mother, currently without a family and unwanted by the local Jewish community, is chosen by the FBI to be the ‘perfect patsy’ upon investigating 39 complaints about him and after plying him with psychotropic drugs.
    The security agent (school resource officer, SRO) Scott Petersen waited at least 4 minutes and never went in, despite taking a position on the west side of Building 12. Other officers acted similarly as if fearing professional shooters.. Thus no SRO officer showed up, and the first responders were slow to arrive, enabling the shooter(s) to flee the scene.
    During the shooting, Cruz walks off campus with a former girl friend. Both hear and discuss the ongoing shooting.
    After the shooting, Nikolas Jesus Cruz rushes to a nearby Subway and then on to a McDonalds to enjoy a soft drink and burger.
    Cruz confesses, but he was in FBI custody (and threatened with the death penalty if he didn’t). Videos and eye witnesses to his actually doing the shooting appear to be unavailable.
    Students At Florida School Shooting Report Crisis Drills and Multiple Shooters. YouTube, Google starts deleting video evidence. Shooter in full body armor/helmet/face mask and strange rifle appears, suits up and assembles rifle within a minutes. How could anybody do this?
    Perhaps the FBI (or associates) did all the killing at this Florida high school. The FBI are, at a minimum, accessories to the murders of the 17 students/teachers killed.

      …there is no credible evidence that anyone was killed at that school. What people were hearing were blanks…

      No coroner trucks, no dead bodies seen, no hazmat cleaning….nothing.

      Great comment.

      Some people are pointing out they were shot by somebody else. If it is true, I don’t believe any American would do this to to children.

      I suspect only a Muslim (not Mossad) or a foreigner would do this. One who hates this country. It could be a drugged up white guy, but I doubt it.

      I think it was the Bigfeets. :shock: :eek: :smile:

      • Pink Slime

        Maybe it was Regis Philbin. :lol:

        • Hayduke

          Now that makes sense. Or Kathie Lee. :smile:

  • Ideas Time

    Does anyone really believe that Nikolas Cruz killed anybody? What about the four cops getting sneaking out the back carrying the large bag getting into the unmarked white ford with cop lights and the get away driver in the cab throwing out garbage? Getting Cruz to confess was way to easy and a way to shut down any real investigation of what really happened. Likely he is part of the scam as are the crisis actors.

  • Bob DD

    Sounds like Sandyhoax, no EMT/Paramedics, or medical helicopter. No one sued over that when their children might have been saved by these medical people. After all, Congressman Gabby Giffords “supposedly” was shot in head and she’s practically perfectly recovered today? Hmmmmmmm?

  • Anonymous

    And why would a zio-pig do that?

  • Sue Rosenorn

    This was the work of the CIA who had a meeting with the teachers and staff a day before the false flag drill. Cruz is a MLK victim and patsy. Just another ploy to take away our guns. The sheriff has either been paid off or is in cahoots with the D
    eep State.

      you nailed it !!!

    They wouldn’t let them in because they would have encountered a guy dressed in armored outfitting much like this from Lethal Weapon 4 …
