CLAIM: Broward County Shooter Was Result of Broward County Policy!

Have law enforcement and school authorities adopted practices that mandated the Broward County shooter not be stopped?

What if the reason why the deputies were called many times yet never arrested (or even documented) the Broward County shooter was not an amazing series of coincidences in incompetence?

One notorious right-wing blogger argues it was a law enforcement policy not to arrest students. The writer for the Conservative Treehouse explained on Twitter how he came upon the information about Broward County:

When the police are hiding current, actual and ongoing unlawful conduct as a matter of standard procedure on a regular basis, what do we expect the police would do with reports of potential unlawful conduct? Of course they would ignore them.
