“Graveyard Dead” Two Florida Sheriffs Offer Stern Warning To Would-Be School Shooters

Last month Santa Rosa County, Florida, Sheriff Bob Johnson issued a stark warning to burglars in his community.

As The Free Press reported, Johnson said openly that homeowners were “more than welcome to shoot” thieves in Santa Rosa County, and that doing so may even save taxpayers money.

In other parts of Florida, in response to what increasingly seems to be an inert response by local police to the unfolding massacre in Uvalde, Texas, Sheriffs Carmine Marceno of Lee County and Grady Judd of Polk County have issued a similar warning of their own to potential school shooters.

Last Thursday, Marceno told reporters that anyone who decides to go “to one of our schools and present deadly force, we will meet you with deadly force and we are going to kill you.”

“You don’t get to shoot our children, you don’t get to hurt our children,” Marceno added. “You bring deadly force in this county, we are going to kill you.”

On Friday, Sheriff Judd also made that promise to would-be killers of schoolchildren.

“If you come to a school in this county, armed, we’re going to do our best through either our guardians, our school resource officers, or our school resource deputy sheriffs, to eliminate the threat outside of the school before they ever get to the children,” Judd said to reporters. “We’re trained to do that.”

“If you have trouble understanding that, let me give it to you in Polk County vernacular,” the sheriff added.

“This is the last thing you’ll see before we put a bullet through your head if you’re trying to hurt our children,” Judd said as he held up a photo of two of his deputies in a school hallway, each aiming an AR-15-style rifle.

“We’re going to shoot you graveyard dead, if you come onto a campus with a gun, threatening our children or shooting at us.”

The U.S. Justice Department announced on Sunday that it will review the massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, where local police failed to move as 78 minutes passed between the time the shooter entered the school until he was killed by a Border Patrol agent.

The Biden administration initially resisted such a probe. But the Justice Department said in a statement that it was now moving forward at the request of Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin.
