A Country Drowning in Stupid

Some high school students and Louisiana saw another student draw a square root symbol as part of a math problem. (Below). Thinking it resembled a gun, they flew into a panic and called police. Police went to the math student’s home and searched it. I am not making this up.

My actual favorite part of this story is how the reporter felt it necessary to explain, “the symbol, which represents a number that when multiplied by itself equals another number.”

You’ll be relieved to know the police found nothing more threatening than algebra homework. The student may still face disciplinary action at the school though. Update: The school is moving to expel the student who drew the square root symbol.

Oh, and some idiots in the Seattle area freaked out and called the media to report that a neighbor was flying a Confederate flag. It was the flag of Norway. I only wish I were making that up.

“You Don’t Need a Gun, the Police Will Protect You”

Meh, not so much.

The police officer assigned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School resigned Thursday, under investigation for failing to enter the building as a gunman opened fire and killed 17 people.

So, this armed cop stayed outside and did nothing while the violent headcase was slaughtering the sons and daughters of the taxpayers who pay his salary  and… if you recall correctly… the violent headcase simply walked off the school grounds after the shooting and went home. The motto of Broward County law enforcement must be, “To protect and to serve… or go outside and wet our pants.”

The former deputy who did nothing while now has armed police protecting his home. Hm, I wonder if they would stand outside and do nothing if an armed assailant showed up.

And there’s more:

In November, a tipster called BSO to say Cruz “could be a school shooter in the making” but deputies did not write up a report on that warning. It came just weeks after a relative called urging BSO to seize his weapons. Two years ago, according to a newly released timeline of interactions with Cruz’s family, a deputy investigated a report that Cruz “planned to shoot up the school” — intelligence that was forwarded to the school’s resource officer, with no apparent result.

Good Lord.

Law enforcement in this case was absolutely incompetent at every level. The local police were called to the home of the known threat no fewer than 39 times, and did nothing to protect the community from the known threat. The known threat posted threats to shoot up his school under his own name. Tipped off to this, the FBI did… nothing. And even as known threat was inside the school building killing people, an armed police office stood outside, probably wetting his pants.

Leftists are saying, “You see! You see! A trained cop saw an AR-15 and wet his pants. This proves teachers should not be armed because they would be even less capable of confronting a shooter.” The late Aaron Feis and the JROTC students who shielded their classmates would beg to differ.

Law-abiding American gun owners should not lose our basic Constitutional Rights as a result of the complete, top-to-bottom incompetence of law enforcement. That’s like saying I should lose my driver’s license and have my car confiscated because a cop in another state waved a drunk driver through a checkpoint who went on to smash his car into a minivan and kill people.

Oh, and meanwhile, CNN frets that describing the known threat as violent murderous headcases is hurtful and stigmatizing. (Warning: Super-annoying autoplay vid at link.)
