Parkland survivors cheer Runcie's arrest

Fox reported, "Florida superintendent's Parkland shooting testimony leads to perjury charge arrest. Broward County Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie and General Counsel Barbara Myrick were arrested Wednesday."

Many parents expressed their relief that Runicie was charged with a felony.

On Valentine's Day 2018, a student who was in Runcie's much-heralded anti-violence program shot and killed 17 fellow students and wounded 17 others.

The Fox report said, "Robert Runcie, who came to the district from Chicago in 2011 and had numerous ties to the Obama administration, is accused making unspecified false statements under oath to the grand jury, which is looking into school safety under the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Act, possible misuse of state safety funds and fraud."

What skills he lacked as a school administrator, Runcie made up in self-promotion. And that is all that matters to a media that adored him following the shooting. That is the opposite of accountability. I mean, 17 kids die and 17 are wounded, and instead of questioning the superintendent's anti-violence program, the media lavished praise upon him.

After all, Obama vouched for him.

Adoring Runcie was old hat to the media.

4 years before the Parkland Massacre, NBC fluffed Runcie with a piece, "Bold Lesson: Florida School District Swaps Cops for Counseling. A school in Florida has great success with new ways of managing discipline problems."

Just 3 years into the job, Runcie had magically achieved kumbaya in an urban district wracked by violence.

NBC said, "He did away with calling in police for non-violent problems that could be handled by school officials in Fort Lauderdale-area schools that make up Florida’s sixth-largest school district.

"Instead, he emphasized alternative approaches for the student body that is 29% Latino and 40% African-American. Students were referred to social workers and substance-abuse counselors."

He used the Underpants Gnomes plan.

Remove cops.

???

Success!

Runcie told NBC, "In terms of results, what we’ve seen so far is very encouraging. Suspensions are down 66%, expulsions by 55%, and arrests by about 45%."

Well, if you stop suspending kids, stop expelling kids, and stop arresting kids, guess what? Suspensions, expulsions, and arrests fall.

Success!

Except for the part where one of the un-suspended, un-expelled, and un-arrested kids shoots 34 fellow students.

Like I said, many parents are cheering Runcie's arrest online.

    Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie was arrested this morning.

    His failed leadership lead to the murder of my daughter Meadow and 16 other innocent lives.

    I will never stop fighting until they get the justice they deserve. #FixIt

    1. Back when I was young and rosy-cheeked, having had Ronaldus Chang’s my mind and Jesus change my heart, I believed that Liberals wanted the best for everyone, but that it was just an “innocent mistake” that their policies - driven by their above-reproach “intentions” - turned things to shite for so many. Alas, wisdom is often borne from cynicism. My current evaluation is that LibCommies are knowingly, willing, and excitedly Tools of Satan. They DO evaluate based on potential body counts and how they can be leveraged. They DO NOT give a fook about an average citizen. It’s all calculated. That is a SICK way to live a life, but it’s all they got...

      BTW Big D, I got a letter from the Berkeley County Board of Elections yesterday asking if I was still in as a poll worker. I said OH HELLZ YEAH. The letter mentioned the possibility of special elections between now and next November. What, like a statewide vote to secede? I’m there with bells on, baby.

    6. To understand the teleology of the Left; remember that much of mortal earthly life is spiritual warfare, and think of a demon searching for a weapon to attack Goodness.

      Teleology is purpose, and the ultimate purpose of Leftism is destruction of The Good.

      Leftism is ultimately evil, and corresponds with the demonic psyche

    7. Leftists are miserable people! They are miserable because they know their actions are reprehensible and immoral and that makes them MORE miserable! Their only satisfaction is making OTHERS miserable!! Can't you see it in NANZI's face? She looks like she's having an orgasm when passing a bill that causes pain and suffering to AMERICAN CITIZENS! Does Jerry Nadless look happy unless he's doing evil?? They are simply SICK people and should NOT be in positions of authority in government or education!

  2. The school system was doomed from the moment they hired him. Why hire an administrator from one of the worst school systems in the country, Chicago? Brilliant.

    1. I didn’t know until just this morning (via Plante) that the person who told Psycho Killer James Hodgkinson that the players on the ballfield were Republicans was none other than...Ron DeSantis. Ya think he might be a little driven to make life hard for LibCommies in his current job?

  6. I don't know what's in the water down there in Florida, but I wish that people in more places would drink it.

    He didn't get busted for his stupid ideas (though he could be the target of some nasty civil suits hint hint), but for perjury - which is something that needs to be taken seriously. End the privilege extended to "anointed ones" to lie under oath, and they'll stop doing it.

    His sort of cr*p needs to go in the dumper, stat. Stop enforcing rules and norms, and guess what happens? But it's easier to wave your hands and spout empty platitudes than to enforce rules and norms.

    I'm amazed at how much damage "pop psych" has done over the past few decades. You can bet that a big part of his "innovation" was all the "self-esteem" b.s. that "pop psych" types have been shoveling for decades. All that is doing is creating monsters.

  8. The "School Resource Officer" was a BSO Deputy assigned to each school to see that reportable criminal acts never made it into the channels that would have those acts become part of the uniform crime reporting. Robbery, assault, serial assault, when perpetrated by students were handled within the school system rather than the juvenile justice system. Presto chango crime drops!
    Small unintended consequence though is that the MSD school shooter had a clean record,no pending charges and was therefore ok in the CRC database to buy a gun.
    But at least they broke the schools to prison pipeline.
    They put in a stop at Slaughter and Maim.

    1. To be clear, they didn't take the cops out of the schools, they assigned cops into the schools so there wasn't a need to call regular cops for regular crimes committed by the students. Everything from cannabis possession to attempted murder could be kept off the radar. The cops were there to help hide the crime.
