Jim Gard (pictured center) once heralded himself to the media as a heroic teacher who sacrificed his own life to save the lives of students during the February 14 massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
Gard conducted a phone interview with CBS Miami as he was hiding in his classroom alongside a few students of his. This was a little under two hours after the deadly rampage. Gard and his students were waiting for the “all-clear” announcement by police who were orchestrating a classroom-by-classroom manhunt.
However, new accounts of Gard’s story have been given by students who are challenging the narrative about the teacher being a hero. “He is nothing but a coward. He has revictimized the students he left out of his class by calling himself a hero,” said a student named Josh Gallager on Twitter.
Connor Dietrich, another student who survived the mass-murderous attack took to Twitter to express a similar sentiment. “As one of the kids left in the hallway, I want people to understand how terrifying and defenseless I personally felt. The person I had to rely on left us to die and that’s not okay,” Dietrich tweeted.
