Retired 'Coward' Deputy Who Stayed Outside During Parkland Shooting Receives Massive Pension

Broward Coward’ Cop Is Getting A Monthly Pension Of $8,702

The Broward County Sheriff's deputy stationed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, who failed to act and engage the killer while the February massacre was ongoing, has begun receiving a massive pension now that he is retired.

Surveillance video showed Peterson outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School as the gunman killed 17 people inside with an AR-15 assault-style rifle.

Peterson gained national infamy in February after it was revealed he hid outside a school building while one of the largest school shootings in US history was ongoing.

Peterson was initially suspended without pay, though Israel said he was eyeing Peterson's termination, and the school resource officer resigned shortly thereafter.

Peterson never entered the building.

Shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz has been jailed since the shooting. Two guidance counselors concurred with Peterson, but two mental health professionals nixed the prospect, saying the teen didn't meet the criteria for involuntary committal.




Pollack has fired a wrongful death lawsuit against Peterson, among others who allegedly failed to prevent the gunman from committing the massacre on Valentine's Day.

Peterson has since been sued by Andrew Pollack, whose daughter lost her life during the bloodshed.

Fred Guttenburg, whose daughter, Jaime, was killed at the school, tweeted his disgust with the news, saying, "This infuriates me in ways people can not comprehend". "My daughter would still be alive if this person did his job".

Peterson has not been criminally charged, but his pension benefits could be in question after a state inquiry into how police responded to the shooting.

In response to the Herald/Times request for a response, Scott's office said: "Because no charges have been filed, the state is required to provide his pension under Florida law but our agency will be closely monitoring the FDLE investigation for any updates".

The former deputy received his first monthly check of $8,702.35 in April, she said.
