'Evil, violent, murdering piece of trash': Polk Sheriff Grady Judd blasts Parkland jury's verdict
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, who served on the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Safety Commission, addressed the verdict in the Parkland school shooter trial, blasting the jury’s decision to reject the death penalty and instead sentence Nikolas Cruz to life in prison. He also had harsh words for Broward County, where he said the school board was the last of all the Florida districts to comply with safety laws passed after the massacre in their own backyard.
“Nothing that comes out of Broward County surprises me. If there’s ever been anyone on the face of the Earth that deserved the death penalty, it was that evil, violent, murdering piece of trash that massacred those children,” Sheriff Judd said Thursday. “There’s never been a more cold, calculated, premeditated murder than that, and if you can’t get the death penalty for that in Broward County, that’s not a safe county to live in.”
