We know we’ve said it before, but what the hell is going on in Broward County?
Not only did Stoneman Douglas High School security monitor Andrew Medina know that shooter Nikolas Cruz was a threat before the Parkland shooting, but he refused to take any meaningful action to stop Cruz when he showed up at the school on the day of the shooting:
Medina didn’t confront Cruz, nor did he call a “Code Red,” which would have triggered an automatic lockdown of classrooms and brought police to the school, because he said he didn’t see a gun. Instead, he radioed another unarmed security monitor, who hid in a closet when the shooting began.
Didn’t think Medina could possibly look any worse? Think again.
Yesterday afternoon, Hunter Pollack, brother of Parkland shooting victim Meadow Pollack, shared some additional disturbing information regarding Medina:
Security Monitor Medina at MSD
– Who allowed a shooter to walk right by him into a building, and failed to call code red.
– Sexually harassed girls (proof here)
Was not fired from working at Broward schools…. pic.twitter.com/HCi1Xsm491

Medina, also an assistant basketball coach at Stoneman Douglas, was accused by two female students of sexual harassment. One of the students was Meadow Pollack:

More from CBS News:
Medina did not return a call from the AP seeking comment. The school district said in a statement late Thursday that Medina was suspended because he denied the allegations, had no previous disciplinary record and “there was no direct evidence to distinguish between the conflicting statements provided by the student and the employee.”
According to records obtained by the South Florida SunSentinel, Medina, who is also an assistant baseball coach, asked one girl to go on a date and another said he made lewd comments to her and said he wanted to visit her at work. Broward County Schools investigators say one of the students’ stories was corroborated by surveillance video of Medina approaching her in a hallway on Feb. 16, 2017.
Medina still works for the district but not at Stoneman Douglas.
In other words, he got a slap on the wrist. A further insult to the memory of Meadow Pollack.
