Once Again, the Cops “Form a Perimeter” While a Mass Murderer Goes About His Business

I have walked out of the Fort Lauderdale Airport terminal and into the baggage claim area where the horrific shootings occurred today about thirty times in the past year.  There is an armed TSA bureaucrat sitting at a desk where you exit the terminal area and go into baggage claim.  He sits about ten paces from the first baggage carousel, where the shootings occurred.  Despite this, the news is reporting that the Fort Lauderdale shooter reloaded twice, and then when he ran out of ammo began walking out of the airport, at which point the cops finally emerged from their “perimeter” and arrested him.  But not after he murdered five people and shot eight others without any interference at all by the TSA, state police, or county cops who are always crawling all over the Fort Lauderdale airport like ants at a picnic.

All the political bigshot blowhards, incuding the governor, almost immediately went on television to praise all of their fellow bureaucrats for their “brilliant coordination” between the local cops, FBI, Homeland Security, bla, bla, bla. They even praised to the treetops how many “perimeters” were established!   This was within an hour or two of the shooting, when no one could possibly have known anything about how much “coordination” had occurred in light of such chaos.  Thousands of people were forced onto the airport runways without food, water, or toilets for hours on end while golf carts rode all around giving food and water only to the cops.

Same thing happened at my alma mater, Virginia Tech:  hundreds of cops “formed a perimeter” around the building where a killer shot more than 30 people dead while the cops hid behind their perimeter.  In Baltimore, after a man shot a doctor inside the Johns Hopkins hospital hundreds of cops hid behind a “perimeter” for about twelve hours until a robot with a camera informed them that the shooter had committed suicide.
