A 15-year-old student from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who courageously used his body as a human shield to protect other students the massacre on Valentine’s Day in which 17 people were murdered is suing the Broward County, Florida sheriff’s office, school district, and the principal and resource officer at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High
Anthony Borges, who was hit with five bullets and wind up with injuries so severe that he cannot walk, has joined his family to file suit against the Broward County sheriff’s office, the school resource officer, the Broward County school system and the principal at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
“The failure of Broward County Public Schools, and of the principal and school resource officer to adequately protect students, and in particular our client, from life-threatening harm, were unreasonable, callous and negligent,” attorney Alex Arreaza says in the letter. “Such action or inaction led to the personal injuries sustained by my client.”
Anthony has undergone several surgeries but remains unable to walk and perform “rudimentary” tasks, Arreaza says. He added that Borges’ medical bills will definitely exceed $1 million and pointed out that Borges’ Boy Scout training helped save his life because he knew how to create a tourniquet to stop his bleeding.
I hope he wins big time. The schools and the sheriffs didn’t do their jobs and stop the kid before he did this. Somewhere throughout the multitude of warnings and complaints to police and school staff, someone at some point failed to follow a policy that would have likely prevented him from following through.
So, none of the victims of this shooting should have to pay any medical bills. They didn’t cause these injuries to themselves. They were victims of an ambush on city/country/state property.
I sincerely hope the justice will be served.
