Officer at Parkland School Waited Outside Instead of Confronting Shooter

The Superintendent of Broward County Schools told us in the hours immediately following the school shooting last week that there were armed guards on the premises. That was the last we heard of it, and I wondered where they were when the shootings were taking place. Now we know.

Wall Street Journal:

The sheriff’s deputy who was assigned to the Florida school where a gunman killed 17 people last week has left the force after evidence showed he stood outside the building where the shooting occurred rather than going in, Sheriff Scott Israel said Thursday.

“He never went in,” Sheriff Israel said, describing video footage of the scene he had watched.

Asked what school resource officer Scott Peterson should have done, the sheriff said he should have gone into the building, “addressed the killer, killed the killer.”

Mr. Peterson resigned after Sheriff Israel suspended him without pay pending an internal investigation, the sheriff said, speaking at a news conference.

(More to come.)

    Note the coward’s name…the same as the evil specimen who murdered his wife and baby in CA.

    Well, this Scott Peterson better have a wife who works at a well-paying job because he’s never going to work again…anywhere.

    There must be some charge he can be arrested on besides dereliction of duty which can’t be used now since he’s off the force.

    How in the world can he live with himself knowing he did NOTHING! UNBELIEVABLE!

    Yet the idiots want to take guns away from us. The unarmed coach had more balls then this sorry excuse for a cop.
    It wasn’t our gun laws or the gun that is to blame, it’s the punk who did it as well as the school, LE and FBI. LE knew he had threatened with a gun before, they all knew what he was writing on social media. Then they put a coward to guard the school.

      Every single thing that has been set up to protect was ignored or worked around by the authorities connected.

        But all you can hear is the GUN!!!

        Nothing about the school bringing him back again and again after his trouble making at school because he was entitled to a free public education.
        Nothing about the school not having locked doors. Nothing about the school only sending a letter telling him he wasn’t allowed on campus.
        Nothing about LE and the FBI knowing what a bad seed he was.
        Now you won’t hear them saying anything about a damn coward cop who could have stopped him with a gun, stayed outside and shit his pants.

        Liberals don’t want to solve problems, liberals want to turn us into a communist country because they’re too damn stupid to even know what it means.

    I’m hearing/reading two different things Peterson was on foot, Peterson was in his squad car and stayed there until the shooting stopped. Anyone know which is true?


  8. Is the video available?

    I hope it will be.

    You know, I would like to know what his training was and what his instructions of what to do in a situation like this was. He was probably told that he couldn’t shoot a kid. I am not suggestion letting him off the hook at all, but that kind of training would made someone hesitate in a situation like this. And, it needs to be changed. I am just thinking of what the military was working under in a war zone during the “reign” of Obozo.
