Some updates on the Parkland FL shooting: Broward County Sheriff's Office released an "animated" timeline of the shooter's route through Building 12.
Animated, in this case, doesn't mean cartoonish, just so we're clear about that. Included in the video is a running clock, showing how long the
shooter spent on each floor of the building in addition to his route. The video was presented at a meeting of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public
Safety Commission, which is an investigative body created after the shooting and tasked with analyzing the events that lead up to and during the
shooting and making recommendations to the state. My understanding is that the commission has been given subpoena power.
Other updates: many of us are aware that exterior surveillance footage of the building had been released. Many of us, including myself, expressed
dismay that the video as it was released made it difficult to tell where Scott Peterson was in relation to Building 12. It now appears that, at least

This article illustrates some
of the chaos during the response to the shooting. At least one officer went to an entirely different location in the area due to poor radio

Finally, this article discusses what the commission has done so far and what
they plan to do in the future. Of particular note already is that teachers were unable to lock their doors from inside the classroom. In order to
successfully lockdown their classrooms, the teachers had to open the doors as shooting was ongoing and use a key to lock the doors from the

I don't mean to be indelicate but one well placed shot could have ended this. It's not very PC but I am sure they have an AED in the school, how about
a weapon in a case in the office. In case of mass murder break glass. It beats the hell out of waiting on the cops.
