Deputies are guarding the home of the Parkland school shooting officer

Source: Business Insider

Deputies from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office are guarding the home of the school resource officer who was stationed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after his family requested the protection, according to multiple news reports on Thursday. Local Fox affiliate WSVN said it sent a reporter to the Boynton Beach, Florida, home of Broward County Sheriff's deputy Scot Peterson for an interview when the reporter was met with six deputies "standing guard outside."

Peterson's family is believed to have asked for the protection, according to NBC affiliate WPTV reporter Andrew Lofholm. Peterson resigned from his post at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School following the shooting at the campus in which 17 people died. He was later criticized after an internal investigation found he never entered the building where the shooting occurred.

"I am devastated," Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said at a news conference. "Sick to my stomach. He never went in." Peterson, who was armed and in uniform at the time, reportedly did "nothing" and remained outside of the building for at least four minutes during the incident, according to Israel.

Peterson had been the high school's resource officer since 2009 and made a salary of $75,673.72 in 2016, according to The South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

1. Hard to say whether Peterson should have rushed in guns ablazing without visuals of what was happeni

ng. A case can be made for that, and what he actually did waiting for backup.

But, I suspect the Chief and a lot of others are trying to scapegoat someone so they don't have to answer to why they didn't take Cruz in custody long before the shooting, or how the hell a 19 year old -- or anyone else -- can walk in and purchase one of these weapons and lethal accessories to enable a massacre.

4. Yeah - we can be human, compassionate AND acknowledge the reality

I get what he did on a human level.

But, he took the oath, to serve and protect, and was paid a decent wage to have the job that brought the responsibility to go into the school with no thought about his personal safety and do his job.

NOT justifying what anyone might be saying or doing that would legitimize the need for him to have to have protection.

No backup. Bringing his handgun to a AR-15 fight.

I think it what the sheriff said is ludicrous. There is no way that cop could have gone in there, confronted Cruz, and shot him dead.

Though since Australia doesn't have these massacres anymore, I think the blame can firmly be placed on the Russian supported NRA and their boughten politicians.

59. Bingo

He was there to collect some easy money, figuring that the chances that any particular school would get hit by an active shooter were infinitesimally low. Getting $75K a year to not have to do real police work is nice, until the shooting starts. Then you have to use the option of retirement to start getting your pension for not doing anything, and it's socially OK.

7. Sorry, I live here, and I can't blame him

The odds are also very, very good he wouldn't have saved anyone by that time, either.

And no, cops don't sign up to get into a lone firefight with someone who outguns them, and who are unknown (ie is there only one?). Cops do sign up for the possibility of death, but they are not military, even though most of these 'roided up tools act like they are.

Those kids didn't die because of him. He is not a coward, and it is kinda appalling DUers in many threads are calling him that. He showed he cannot handle this type of pressure, and there is nothing wrong with him being fired or made to resign. He will regret and what-if forever. The kids that died were already dead.

15. +1. LOL. I know, it's hard defending police nowadays.

I think it's more likely he would have charged in had he known exactly what was going on. Ever notice how 100 police on the scene make the kids hold their hands in the air while pointing guns at them until they know long afterwards how many shooters are involved, etc.

Again, knowing what we do now, maybe it would have been the thing to do to charge in. But, I can also see a lot of innocent people being killed that way.

It would seem that Sheriff Israel disagrees with you:

While suspected killer Nikolas Cruz fired round after round in the freshman building, during an attack that lasted about 6 minutes, Israel was clear on what Peterson should have done.

“Went in, addressed the killer. Killed the killer,” Israel said.

Now, what I want to know is in what world does it make sense to ask teachers to have a shoot out when the person PAID and TRAINED(I assume) to do just that didn't move to do ANYTHING AT ALL. They want teachers to be baby sitters, guidance counselors, social workers educators and now prison/security guards. All for nothing even getting close to 75 flagging k a year.

60. No

That is exactly what he and the rest of them are supposed to do. This has been the standard since Columbine. Cops are to immediately enter the scene and engage the shooter. No waiting for swat. Putting pressure on the shooter to stop him from killing more is the first priority over all others. Either he ignored his training or he was never trained correctly in the first place, which I find hard to believe since this tactic has been taught and policy at most agencies for near 20 years now.

64. Having a shootout is exactly what the idiot Republicans want teachers to do, and what they

are trying to now get more funding for. The guy was an deputy and the assigned resource officer/security guard. So his job was to go in there and help. He didn't have to get into a shootout but he could have at the very least been out there herding up those kids as they came out. Instead they had to help themselves and more than a few folks died doing that while he did nothing. They had no gun, no training, and no deputation but they played hero just the same, while this cat was doing what and where?

I wonder how many of these Monday morning quarterbacks would willingly run into a hail of bullets knowing that they have virtually no chance either of surviving the confrontation or of stopping the gunman.

I admire the coaches, but I don't think I would or could do that (unless it was my own child, who I would instinctually protect with my life). I guess I wouldn't know unless it happened.

I don't blame the security guard for not wanting to sacrifice his own life, which was a likely outcome. People should not expect that of anybody.

Last edited Sat Feb 24, 2018, 12:07 AM - Edit history (1)

I have no doubt Peterson thought the job of resource officer at MSD, in the safest city in FL, was a piece of cake and an easy gig to collect a nice 75k salary on his way to retirement, all while having little worry about ever being involved in a shootout.

However, students and teachers I'm sure were flooding 911 with calls about the location of the shooter, i.e. what floor, wing, etc. That info should've been being sent to Peterson in real time from dispatch. He should have had an idea where Cruz was and along with knowing the layout of the school, how to approach and confront Cruz safely. That was his job; he didn't do it.

As an example, back in 1966 when Charles Whitman was shooting up the Univ of Texas campus with a deer rifle from a commanding position atop the Clock Tower, police officers did figure out a way to get into the Clock Tower, move up the stairs, confront and kill Whitman.

52. When I was taking whitewater safety classes...

They told us the first rule of rescue was "Don't add to the body count." Meaning was that you can't rescue anybody if you are dead.
I can't judge Peterson on this one event. What is his history? Has he saved lives during his career? No one cares, they just want to fry him for this one instance. He may have been a coward but as someone who has never been in that position and had to make a decision with incomplete information like he did, I can't judge.

66. A lot of it is the gun support folks trying to take the blame off their precious guns and put it

on some guy like this. They'll resort to anything to save their gunz.
