"And I’m supposed to give up the right to protect myself in favor of relying on guys who, if they chicken out and let me die, get reinstated with full pay and benefits afterward? Screw that."

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The Miami Herald reports that

The Broward Sheriff’s Office sergeant who was first to respond to the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting lost his job after he hid behind his car as the first shots rang out.

He’ll be reinstated, awarded full back pay, the union said Wednesday.

As Glenn Reynolds links to the Miami Herald story, he said this in Instapundit:

Remember: When seconds count, the police are only minutes away. Or maybe out in the parking lot, hiding behind their cars like a little, highly-paid weasel.

UPDATE: So a couple of commenters think I’m being too hard on this guy, noting that you never know how you’ll act in a situation like this until it happens. Well, okay, but I’ll bet dollars to doughnuts he strutted around like a hero before. And I’m supposed to give up the right to protect myself in favor of relying on guys who, if they chicken out and let me die, get reinstated with full pay and benefits afterward? Screw that. And while maybe nobody knows what they’ll do in a crisis, it wasn’t a crisis when he maneuvered to get his job and back pay instead of hanging his head in shame at his shameful failure. And the union that supported him here is garbage, and further illustrates why public employee unions should be banned.
