We’ve been wondering for a while now if anyone in authority was going to face any real consequences for all the failures that facilitated the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. As Twitchy reported, CNN just aired a “pity piece” on the armed school resource officer who waited outside while the shooter went on his rampage inside.

It’s not great news, but we’ll take it. Fox News this week reported that the Broward sheriff’s captain who gave the order to “stage” outside the school rather than enter and confront the gunman is to be replaced.

Fox News reports:

Jan Jordan, the Broward County sheriff’s captain who allegedly directed emergency responders to “stage” outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14, rather than rushing immediately into the building, will be replaced.

Multiple law enforcement sources told Fox News in March that directions from commanding officials for first responders arriving at the school went against all training, which instructs emergency responders to “go, go, go” until the shooter is neutralized. Jordan was said to be the commanding officer on the scene of the massacre.

It’s the tiniest of steps, but it’s a step.
