(FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.) — A Florida sheriff’s deputy who failed to confront a gunman during a Feb. 14 school massacre is receiving a monthly state pension of $8,702.35.

The SunSentinel reports 55-year-old Scot Peterson, who resigned and retired after the shootings, began receiving payments in April.

Surveillance video showed Peterson outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School as the gunman killed 17 people inside with an AR-15 assault-style rifle. Broward Sheriff Scott Israel said Peterson should have gone inside. President Donald Trump called Peterson a coward.

Peterson later said he thought the shots were coming from outside the building.

3. I support pensions like this. Unless his actions are deemed to

be bad enough to prevent him from having it, I say he should have it.

I am a very far left DEMOCRAT liberal who thinks everyone should have a guaranteed income and pension.

As lame as his actions were that day, unless they rise to a dismissal that would prevent him from getting the pension, he should get it.

AS to who should have gone inside that day, I wish you know who and is vice would have been there and gone in that day.
