Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed in the deadly school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, quietly resigned last month from a state commission created to investigate the shooting in order to pursue his own probe.
Pollack, among the more outspoken Parkland parents, submitted a resignation letter following the commission’s first meeting in April, announcing that he was leaving. Pollack wrote in the letter — dated May 4 and read Thursday morning into the record by commission chairman Sheriff Bob Gualtieri — that he wants to focus on the upcoming Broward School Board elections and on an independent investigation in which he’s involved.
“It is my intention to get individuals elected to our school board who will take preventative measures to keep our schools safe.,” Pollack wrote. “I will also be spending my time and resources on an independent investigation that will get to the bottom of who is responsible for the atrocities that occurred in our school on Valentine’s Day 2018, the last Valentine’s Day I will ever spend with my daughter.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Pollack’s resignation was announced one day after he walked onto campus and demanded that two school monitors be fired for failing to order a “code red” when they saw Cruz walking onto campus carrying a bag.
In an interview with the Miami Herald on Thursday morning, Pollack said he was confident the commission would move forward “with our without me” but that he wanted to assume a more active role in uncovering the “incompetence” that led to the shooting.
“If you want something done right you have to do it yourself,” he said, adding that he wasn’t the type of person to be told what to do. “I just want to stay focused on my own investigation. They don’t really need me on the commission but I’m going to uncover other things.”
