Infowars reporting confirmed as revelations of PROMISE Program emerge

Intel contained in an Infowars report regarding agreements between Broward County law enforcement and school officials to protect criminal students is bubbling to the surface, and radio host Rush Limbaugh has called for the information to be shown to President Trump.

Infowars was the first major outlet to put a magnifying glass over bombshell revelations presented by a journalist at The Conservative Treehouse (TCH), which uncovered possible connections between policies implemented in 2012-2013 by Broward County officials to the massacre in Parkland, Fla. on Valentine’s Day.

Not long ago, the Broward County school district had one of the highest levels of criminality, suspensions and incidents of student misbehavior in the country, and the majority of offenders were minorities.

Seeking to improve their record in an effort to secure expanded state and federal funding, district officials led by new superintendent Robert Runcie – who had been brought in from the Chicago school system – implemented a strategy designed to essentially sweep the issue of student criminality under the rug, while also addressing the ‘racial injustice’ of the system.

A 2013 “Collaborative Agreement On School Discipline” between the School Board of Broward County and the Sheriff of Broward Country, as well as the Fort Lauderdale Branch of the NAACP and a variety of other state and local legal bodies, can be found HERE.

In short, the agreement established new standards and practices by which law enforcement would seek alternatives to arresting students who had committed crimes or “minor disturbances,” with a specific focus on “students of color, students with disabilities and LGBTQ students,” who were “disproportionately impacted by school-based arrests for the same behavior as their peers.”

The standard by which crimes were deemed ‘minor’ enough to be essentially dismissed eroded quickly, as “even the most severe of unlawful conduct was being filtered by responding police,” according to the journalist at TCH, who says he was approached by whistle-blowers in law enforcement.

Limbaugh dedicated a large portion of his broadcast on Monday to this story – which has also now been touched upon by Tucker Carlson of Fox News and Jake Tapper of CNN.

“There are a number of news organizations – not mainstream – who think that said policy was in effect,” Limbaugh explained, implicitly including Infowars, before going on to read directly from multiple sections of the Infowars report.

“He was in the Chicago public school system specifically to fix the schoolhouse-to-jailhouse problem in Broward,” Limbaugh said of Superintendent Runcie. “‘He was hailed as a hero as suspensions magically dropped by 40% and arrests dropped by 66% in just two years in Broward County.’ They just stopped arresting and they stopped suspending.”
