The state commission that investigates in Florida the shooting that killed 17 people in a Parkland school in February 2018 recommended in its final report to train teachers who wish to use firearms.

In a 458-page document released this week, the Commission for Public Safety of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, composed of 15 members, proposed, among other recommendations, that professors who wish to carry weapons and be trained in their use.

The report also recommends a change in laws that allows school districts to raise taxes to make improvements in school safety, as well as forcing mental health centers to notify the police if any patient threatens other people.

The commission examines the numerous errors that emerged as a result of the massacre, such as lax school safety policies and Broward County sheriff’s deputies who were not very combative and were sheltered at the time of the shooting.

Dozens of recommendations were made based on the errors and weaknesses detected after the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas School in Parkland, Broward County, north of Miami.

On the other hand, the governor-elect of Florida, the Republican Ron DeSantis, said on Wednesday to a local media that will take a “series of measures” during his first week at the head of the Interior, after swearing in on January 8, between which could include the suspension of Broward Sheriff Scott Israel.

Israel and its department have been the subject of numerous criticisms, both for the way they handled the shooting and for the numerous previous warnings they received about the dangerous behavior of its author, the alumnus of the school Nikolas Cruz, without any of this leading to an action of the Police.

Cruz, a self-confessed author of the massacre, faces 17 counts of attempted murder last week by a grand jury in this county, which also charged him with 17 counts of first-degree murder. (EFEUSA) .-
