Pure incompetence from the top down in the agency is the only answer. Poor training, or a complete lack of training, breeds poor response, poor
decision making, poor command, etc. The rule of thumb is that you will always fall back to the lowest level of competency in an emergency situation,
and that’s exactly what we saw from BCSO. Some of them fell back to that lowest level and did exactly what they were trained to do, which was
absolutely nothing. Others, like the captain on scene, just completely lost the plot. Then Coral Springs PD shows up and falls to their
level of training competency, which was “doing something, anything, productive is better than doing nothing” and the differences couldn’t be
more readily obvious.
Everything out of BCSO from the moment the shooting stopped has been CYA. Or in the case of Scott Israel, both political grandstanding and CYA.
