Judge says officers fired for Parkland inaction may be reinstated

The shooter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on Feb. 14, 2018 took the lives of 17 people. The people who could have stopped it didn’t do their jobs — but they’ll still get paid.

Two Broward County Sheriff’s deputies may get back pay and have their jobs reinstated thanks to a Thursday court ruling, Breitbart reported. Judge Keathan Frink ruled in accord with an arbitrator after finding the department took too long to fire them after the incident.

The deputies, Brian Miller and Joshua Stambaugh, were terminated for their failure to properly act at the scheme of the school shooting. The judge’s decision had nothing to do with the merits of their conduct during the incident but rather with the department’s hesitancy in waiting to fire them.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office had 180 days to investigate the matter and make its decision. However, Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony allegedly waiting an extra 13 days before axing Stambaugh, prompting the decision to allow for back pay.

The deputies aren’t the only officials who are being compensated despite their troublesome conduct surrounding the shooting. Broward County Superintendent Robert Runcie was indicted on perjury charges related to testimony about the 2018 incident but will still get a hefty severance, ABC News reported.

Runcie will be awarded his $740,000 severance package upon his voluntary departure from his position. The school district will also pay for Runcie’s defense costs of anywhere between $100,000 and $350,000, though he’ll have to pay it back if he’s found guilty or pleads guilty or no contest to charges.

Opponents of Runcie were outraged about his leniency on discipline that allowed the shooter, Nikolas Cruz, to attend the school despite having a known history of violence, Fox News reported. Under Runcie’s watch, the school became lax about problems like bullying and may have failed to report other crimes.

The kids at the school in Parkland were let down by the people who were supposed to protect them. Now these same people are walking away with big money despite their possible role in allowing this tragedy to happen. It may be technically fair, but it certainly isn’t what rational people would call justice.

That thought has crossed my mind a number of times. Not only here but elsewhere. I also wonder if those people work under the table or pay taxes like the rest of us.

I make more then $12,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 11 to 12 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it…GOOD LUCK.

All Democrat Judges need to be removed and replaced with Judges that strictly adhere to the U.S. Constitution.

DUH gwilson – – judges are VOTED to the bench at that level by “the PEOPLE”…most people don’t even look at the “judges” to find out when & where they got their law degree and I’ll bet not even 1% has even looked at what decisions and/or who they “defended” before running for judge…look at their previous politics and who they defended to find out HOW they will “judge”!!! GET SMART BEFORE you vote and complain about judges…THEN vote…the real way a judge can be “removed”!!!

There is a solution to the rediculous idea
of eliminating police from our Country.
All police departments stop going on duty
for just one month and let the idiots kill
each other at will that should bring out the
vigilantes and then clean up the rest of the
Pelosi would be hiding in her basement
on the phone to Biden and Harris hiding
in Biden’s basement.The Kadafi syndrome.
