'hero' teacher is really a coward says students.. Locked them out of his classroom

At least two students who survived the chaos and bloodshed of the Florida school shooting last month are challenging the narrative surrounding a teacher hailed as a hero after the rampage.

Math teacher Jim Gard was credited with protecting students in his classroom in the horrifying moments of Feb. 14 after a teen gunman unleashed a fusillade of bullets at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

In recent days, however, students Josh Gallagher and Connor Dietrich have expressed contempt at Gard on Twitter. Josh said Gard "called himself a hero, and ... the media portrayed him as a hero when in reality he is the opposite."

Josh said he was in Gard's class when the fire alarm went off and the students filed out. When they heard gunshots, about 15 of them froze before racing back to the classroom. Gard, however, had locked the door and refused to let them in.


"We were stuck in the hall for four total minutes, ducking and in fear for our lives" until a teacher Josh didn't know let them in another classroom, Josh said. He said Gard "left 75% of his students out in the hallway to be slaughtered."

Gard gave a phone interview to CBS Miami while still holed up in his classroom with some of his students, less than two hours after the shooting spree. The group had been awaiting the all-clear from police officers conducting a classroom-by-classroom search.

Josh noted that Gard was interviewed by media multiple times and has been acclaimed a hero.

"He is nothing but a coward," Josh said. "He has revictimized the students he left out of his class by calling himself a hero."

Another student, Connor Dietrich, expressed similar emotions on Twitter.

"As one of the kids left in the hallway I want people to understand how terrifying and defenseless I personally felt," Connor tweeted. "The person I had to rely on left us to die and that’s not okay."

Gard expressed shock at the accusations, telling the South Florida Sun-Sentinel he followed protocol that requires to keep doors locked during an active shooter drill or real emergency. He said six students followed him back into the room.

“I looked back down the hall and no one was around — no one,” he said. “You have to close the door. That’s protocol. We have no choice."

He said he and the six students were huddled in the dark when they heard banging on the door. He said he is prohibited from opening the door but did walk over to it. The banging, however, had stopped.


“Fast forward to Sunday, when the parents came back for an open house,” Gard told the Sun-Sentinel. “All of a sudden this kid comes over and starts screaming at me. Then his father started screaming at me. This is insane.”




get those teachers guns!! get military in those schools!! lock them down!! searches!!! scans!! infrared!! someone.. someone.. THINK OF THE CHILDREN! *meaning keep ignoring them until they do something*




I think possibly.. THROWING MORE MONEY at this issue will solve it...

thats it..

MORE IPADS for all.. and more money. and no guns or freedoms.

Was watching some protest on a libtard campus where the protesters hired police to protect them on their march while they chanted 'Pigs, get off our campus!'
