    How Runcie Pantz the Sheriff

    Gotta give it to old slick Runcie. He played the Sheriff like a dollar store kazoo.

    Runcie and Sheriff go on camera as a united front outraged, pointing attention to the FBI

    Runcie knows he can only get about a day or two out of this, so, he waits for Sheriff to start beating his amazing chest to the media.

    Then, Runcie quietly goes on camera pretending to be humble and accepting of some of the blame.

    Every camera of blame points straight at the Sheriff ;who on an adrenaline rush, exposed his self absorbed narcissism to mass media.

    Sheriff ends up on the defensive on an island alone, no entourage, no support.

    That's Runcie; some how, some way, he always comes out on top.

    How federal funding kept Nikolas Cruz from getting arrested and unable to purchase firearms
    By M. Catharine Evans
    The net is widening in Broward County, ensnaring those who failed to stop Nikolas Cruz from killing 17 people. The Broward County School District's highly touted PROMISE program, initiated in 2012 and signed into policy in 2013, is coming under fire. It prevented Nikolas Cruz from getting arrested, which could have blocked him from purchasing his armory, if convicted.

    In the 2011-2012 school year, Broward County Public Schools had the highest number of school-related arrests statewide at 1,062. Newly hired Superintendent Robert Runcie, with strong connections to the Obama administration, teamed up with community organizations like the NAACP, local law enforcement, and government agencies to sign the Collaborative Agreement on School Discipline to eliminate the "schoolhouse to jailhouse pipeline" through programs such as PROMISE (Preventing Recidivism through Opportunities, Mentoring, Interventions, Support, and Education).

    One of the program's participants, Juvenile Court judge Elijah Williams, speaking at a 2013 signing ceremony for PROMISE, made it clear it was all about the stats:

    We already bought the ticket. We are waiting for our numbers to come in. We know we have hit the jackpot when our school related arrests go down, down down.

    The collaborative agreement, signed by Runcie; Sheriff Scott Israel, now fully embroiled in his agency's failure to get Cruz off the streets; state's attorneys; the president of the Broward chapter of the NAACP; and many others, has the fundamental goal of keeping minority students involved in various "transgressions" away from law enforcement and out of the courts.

    In one feature of PROMISE, Judge Williams circumvents the criminal justice system by participating in a simulated court hearing called "The Juvenile Justice System of Care," where he encourages the delinquent student to participate in the program rather than risk arrest.

    The Obama administration's Department of Education was also involved in implementing PROMISE. Obama, who routinely dangled carrots in the form of matching federal grants to local districts for their participation in Common Core and Race to the Top, doled out millions to Broward.

    With the promise of federal monies, it's no surprise that Superintendent Runcie (annual salary: $335,000) was happy to oblige his friends in D.C. Within a year of Runcie's arrival, student arrest rates were down 66 percent, and Broward County Schools were about to hit the federal jackpot.

    On October 5, 2016, the School Board of Broward County Public Schools and its community partners signed the PROMISE agreement for the second time. After the 2016 signing, it was announced a couple of weeks later on October 18, BCPS was the only large urban district in the country to receive a Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) grant from the U.S. Dept. of Education totaling $53,808, 909. One of the TIF's grant priorities is listed as "improved life for students in poverty/students of color."

    The February 14 Parkland school shooting is shedding light on PROMISE, and now some officials in Broward are speaking out about the school district's push to keep police out of the loop when crimes occur in schools.

    On The Ingraham Angle Friday night, the president of the Broward County Sheriff Deputies Association, Jeff Bell, said the problem with PROMISE is that it "took all discretion away from law enforcement to effect an arrest if we choose to."

    On Sunday, CNN's Jake Tapper grilled Broward County's Sheriff Scott Israel on the myriad complaints his department received concerning Cruz prior to the shooting. When Tapper brought up the Broward County School District's PROMISE program as a means to dish out the least punitive discipline against students who commit crimes, unlike Bell, Israel defended PROMISE, calling it "excellent" and saying it had nothing to do with the mass shooting.

    Later, when Tapper pressed Israel on his lack of knowledge regarding specific complaints made about Cruz's violent behavior, saying there might be something "wrong with PROMISE" if a dangerous individual like Cruz is allowed to avoid an arrest after felonious behavior, Israel again said there's "nothing wrong with the program." Asked by Tapper if he will resign, Sheriff Israel said he has no intention of resigning. To date, no one has publicly asked Superintendent Runcie that same question.

    Yep, unfortunately for Mr. Humility, Superintendent Runcie, he happened to be sitting in a school board meeting, on video with his "leading ladies" as the school board had a parents group from South Broward REMOVED from the meeting following their pleas for school safety. The school "Cross Creek" that Cruz attended was part of their presentation. As soon as they brought up one of the incidents of child molestation in a school in THE CITY OF PARKLAND, they were accused of "breaking tone" and quickly shuffled out.

    This guy needs to go along with a every member of the board. Folks, they created this perfect storm to happen. When are the voters going to demand a change.

    School board Robin Bartlpig and the rest of the school board's chosen ones did a big experiment called PROMIS. It accomplished 2 things: It got the self serving criminals on the school board massively paid. It got 17 people killed (mostly kids) last month. But thats the way the chosen roll in Broward. Its a very dirty place where nobody tells the truth and the true cause of anything is never discussed.

    All so true. And, BCPS is set up in such a way that there is no accountability. Every department operates as a silo. With regard to behavioral incidents information is not shared between the Guidance departments and ESE departments. Departments are suspicious and guarded toward each other. BSO and BCPS are equally and similarly dysfunctional.

    The fluffy dogs and all of the other distractions that were placed in MSD this past week are leaving the building.

    What Remains?

    A school still without metal detectors, no safety glass, minimal police presence and BSO Distict 17 distracted, hiding behind dark tint and crapping in their pants about being under the microscope.

    What a damn mess.

    SBBC will have meetings and talk about the options; and in the end, nothing will change.
