More Stoneman Douglas Students Arrested For Weapons, Threats

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students were arrested on Tuesday.

Parkland, FL - The Broward County Sheriff's Office announced on Tuesday that two Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students were arrested for bringing weapons to school.

A third suspect is accused of making threats on social media, according to WSVN.

The two arrested students brought knives on campus, while another student was involuntarily committed after he posted a threat to Snapchat.

WFTS reports that in one picture, the teen had a gun in his waistband, and in another he was showing off bullets. Both messages contained written threats.

Once that suspect has been cleared from his mental evaluation, he will taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center.

Following the school shooting and recent arrests, Governor Rick Scott wrote to Superintendent Robert Runcie and Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel asking them to post law enforcement officers at every entry point to the school.

The Governor offered assistance from the Florida Highway Patrol to secure the school.

"Recent events at the school have demonstrated the need for additional security measures to be implemented," Governor Scott wrote. "It is imperative that the proper steps are immediately taken at all schools, including Marjory Stoneman Douglas to keep students and staff safe."

"Today, I am requesting that immediate action be taken to require an armed law enforcement officer to secure every point of entry at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while students are on campus," the governor continued. "To help with this goal, the state is willing to provide assistance from the Florida Highway Patrol, until a more permanent safety plan can be put into place."

Sheriff Israel has not yet responded.

sadly I think we will find that school systems don't want a police presence in the schools simply because it affects the students of color more than others.

um...why the need for armed guards at every entrance? why not simply a one-way panic device where the door auto-locks upon closing....even the main entrance can be the same and would still pass fire code.....rooms can have the same interior panic device and be far more secure....the primary problem is guns walking into the school building with the assumption that cannot happen due to the school being a "gun free zone".........ROFL.............

A Huge problem is the PROMISE program. Obama got bent out of shape that more blacks were being arrested than whites. He blamed police for the arrests rather than blaming criminals for the crimes. He developed a federal program (in 2013, I believe) that diverted minor criminals rather than charging them with crimes. The school district and Sheriff's Dept. received federal funding under this program if their crime rate dropped and fewer blacks were arrested. In order to continue receiving federal money, they had to divert more and more crimes to keep the crime rate falling. The criminal acts didn't stop, but the statistics on crime sure looked good on paper! Cruz was contacted how many times (20?) in the past, but not arrested or charged. The Dems couldn't let the blame go to Obama, the Sheriff or the school district, so they are blaming the gun, Funny thing that, too. I believe it was the same year (2013) that Obama funded the CDC to do a study on gun violence. When the results came out, they didn't show the evil of guns, but quite the opposite. He put an end to any further study and never talked about the results since they didn't show what he was hoping. He did continue the push for gun control anyway.

metal Detectors and armed law enforcement at every school. This is 2018 and it is what it is - NECESSARY & CRITICAL!

get rid of israel. you'll get things done.
