The High School massacre in Florida could have been prevented, or at the very least drastically mitigated. Nickolas Cruz was well known as a deranged dirt bag to all at the school and the Broward County Sheriffs office.
We know this, as it has been stated on a number of occasions and by countless people at the school.
Yet he was allowed to enter one of the buildings, kill 17 people and exit unharmed, easily avoiding the ONE armed police officer on the rather sizable campus.
So permit me the opportunity to break it all down and logically explain the reasons why we need to harden schools with real first responders.
