Stoneman Douglas graduation: Class of 2018 remembers those who aren't there

  Stoneman Douglas graduation: Class of 2018 remembers those who aren't there "Remember those not with us, and celebrate all the successes the Class of 2018 has brought to the community and the world!" Those words, in a Twitter post Sunday by Ty Thompson, principal of Parkland's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, seemed to capture the bittersweet tenor, the joy but also the pain, of Sunday afternoon's Class of 2018 graduation ceremony.

BROWARD SHERIFF'S CAPTAIN WHO GAVE INITIAL ORDER TO 'STAGE' NOT ENTER STONEMAN DOUGLAS IS ID'D

Multiple law enforcement sources told Fox News in March that directions from commanding officials for first responders arriving at the school went against all training, which instructs emergency responders to "go, go, go" until the shooter is neutralized. Jordan was said to be the commanding officer on the scene of the massacre.

It was not immediately clear whether Jordan was being replaced due to her leadership at Stoneman Douglas in February.

Michael Udine, commissioner of Broward County, told the Sun-Sentinel that changes must be enacted "when there are reports of incident commanders being unable to make real-time decisions."

"While no one is responsible for the crime besides the shooter, these continuous reports of failure in the system are extremely troubling and must be addressed," Udine said.

The city, which hired security consulting firm Center for Public Safety Management LLC after the shooting, has asked Broward Sheriff Scott Israel for three recommendations for Jordan's replacement.

Parkland's current contract with the sheriff's office, which includes 43 personnel, will expire on Sept. 30, 2019.

He 'opted for self-preservation': Parkland deputy's lawyers say he wasn't legally required to stop massacre .
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Many have called him a coward, but former sheriff's deputy Scot Peterson had no legal duty to stop the slaughter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, his attorneys say. Peterson took shelter rather than confront the killer, but he did not act with malice or bad faith, according to his attorneys, Michael Piper and Christopher Stearns of Fort Lauderdale. Therefore he can't be held legally responsible for the deaths, they say in court documents.Allegations against Peterson suggest only that he "opted for self-preservation over heroics," the attorneys wrote.
