Broward Deputy Scot Peterson Gets $8k A Month From Pension

Broward Deputy Scot Peterson Gets $8k A Month From Pension

This Feb. 14, 2018 frame from security video provided by the Broward County Sheriff's Office shows deputy Scot Peterson, right, outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

Peterson resigned and retired February 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.

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

This runs contrary to police dispatch audio, in which Mr Peterson reported shots as coming from "inside the 1200 building". He hid while my daughter and 16 others were slaughtered! Pollack has also targeted Peterson for collecting the hefty monthly pension.

President Donald Trump said Peterson either froze under pressure or was a "coward", who "didn't have the courage" to go in. That money should go to actually securing our schools!

On her Facebook page, Gitlyanska said Russian-controlled media were being "used as tools in a hybrid war against Ukraine". Security agents also arrested a Ukrainian-born Russian journalist, accusing him of treason.

Broward County Commissioner Michael Udine told the Miami Herald: "The thing he was supposed to do - protect these children - he didn't do".

According to the Sun-Sentinel, Peterson would not be entitled to his pension if he were convicted of a crime such as embezzlement or bribery, but his alleged failure to do his job doesn't count. Until the shooting, he was considered a trusted school resource officer at Stoneman Douglas, according to annual reviews of his performance.

Peterson waited outside of the school as Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people, even though Sheriff Scott Israel said that he clearly knew what was going on.

Facing disciplinary action from the Broward County Sheriff's Department, Peterson opted to resign and retire on February 23, just 9 days after the shooting. "Addressed the killer. Killed the killer".

"This guy is a disgrace", Pollack told the Sun-Sentinel.
