A deputy named Scot Peterson of Broward County was armed and present during the recent shooting. He has resigned now that it has been revealed that he did nothing to engage the shooter. This is maddening.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Sheriff’s deputy did ‘nothing’ as gunman hunted students during Florida shooting
A school resource officer assigned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., remained outside of the high school when a shooter opened fire on students and teachers last week and did not engage the shooter.
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said video footage showed the deputy, Scot Peterson, arrive on the west side of the high school’s freshman building and take up a position. Peterson, though, did not enter the school.
Israel said Peterson was armed and in uniform but did “nothing.”
“What I saw was a deputy arrive at the west side of Building 12, take up a position and he never went in,” Israel said.”
When asked what Peterson should have done, Israel said the deputy should have, “Went in, addressed the killer, killed the killer.”
Here’s a video of the sheriff making the announcement:
