Florida school’s security cameras were rewound 20 minutes, causing lag in capturing gunman, officials say


What? yet another failure from our government officials? Was there anything that WASN’T screwed up in this incident?

Sure, we should all line up and turn our guns in. That’d be pretty smart.

Police officers responding to last week’s Florida school shooting thought they were tracking Nikolas Cruz live on surveillance video — but then realized the footage was delayed by nearly 30 minutes because it was rewound, tossing roadblocks into the frantic efforts to capture the 19-year-old shooting suspect.

Responding officers were watching security footage in Broward School District that occurred 20 minutes prior, leaving them in the dark when attempting to look for Cruz in Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 13, the Sun Sentinel first reported Wednesday. Cruz was captured in Coral Springs, located about a mile away, more than an hour after the start of the shooting.
