From William Katz:
Ben Bradlee, the late, legendary editor of the Washington Post, said that journalism is history's rough first draft. The problem is, there is rarely a second draft.
There is new information out on the recent school shooting in Florida, and it is important. It reveals what many people could see as negligence on the part of school authorities. How often is this repeated throughout the United States? From the South Florida Sun Sentinel:
Two months before the massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School, a retired Secret Service agent warned administrators that the school could be vulnerable to a gunman.
Gates were unlocked. Students did not wear identification badges. A fire alarm could send students streaming into the halls. Active-shooter drills were inadequate, he said.
The retired agent, Steve Wexler, said he made his point by strolling through the school with Post-it notes, attaching them to places his bullets or knife would land if he were an intruder. No one stopped him, he said.
In an interview with the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Wexler said he was invited to analyze the school’s security and presented his recommendations to four staff members.
"I said, ‘This stuff is blatantly obvious. You’ve got to fix this,’” Wexler said.
He never heard another word from the district, he said.
A WORD FROM TIM:
Well, this is an uber-progressive school in a Democrat area, and they did all sorts of things that just invited such an attack. As well all know, the school had a deal with the Sheriff's department to not arrest bad kids so as to not put a mark on their record and to please Barack Hussein Obama. And not securing the place is par for the course; they didn't want to get the future inmates comfortable with such security, lest they think going to the Big House no big deal. Typical liberals; self esteem is more important than these kids lives.
Of course the media failed to report any of that because it didn't fit the gun control narrative.

I was reminded of this column written by Kyle Kashuv at the Daily Wire a week ago or so:

This was in large part a coefficient of Social Justice programs by the Feds - and the Progressives who run the district down there.
