36. He signed up for this duty to "protect and serve"

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.
