Scot Peterson, the sheriff's deputy vilified for failing to confront the Parkland school shooter, has begun receiving a state pension of $8,702.35 a month.

Peterson resigned and retired Feb. 22, a week after the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where he waited outside as Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people and wounded 17 others.

Peterson began to receive his pension in April, according to the Florida Department of Management Services. He can receive the payments for the rest of his life.

The 55-year-old Peterson, a Broward deputy for 32 years, was paid $101,879.03 last year -- $75,673.72 in base salary plus overtime and other compensation, according to sheriff's office records. Until the shooting, he was considered a trusted school resource officer at Stoneman Douglas, according to annual reviews of his performance.
....

Peterson, a native of Illinois, started with the sheriff's office in July 1985, after studying at Miami-Dade Community College and Florida International University.

I'm not being judgmental. He was there for 33 years, and he has evidently fulfilled all the requirements to receive a pension.
