Former Marjory Stoneman Douglas High resource officer Scot Peterson, 56, was arrested Tuesday on charges relating to failure to enter the school during the mass shooting there.

He was charged in Broward County with seven counts of neglect of a child, three counts of culpable negligence and one of perjury after a 15-month investigation, according to a news release from Florida authorities
In certain extreme situations, the law is inadequate. In order to shame its inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law to pursue a natural justice.

If you are not someone who runs to gunfire, but runs away, that's just the way God and life made you. Pretending to be the one who will run to gunfire, and having the world see that that is a lie, is a fate worse than anything.

I'm curious to see what evidence gets presented in court. What Scot Peterson did was more than just inaction. He effectively ordered a stand down over the radio, telling every other responder to stay away while the shooting continued and victims were bleeding out. I'm not sure Peterson ever notified incident command when the shooting stopped, which also cost time/lives.

At a brief news conference, Sheriff Gregory Tony said deputies Edward Eason and Josh Stambaugh were fired Tuesday for their inaction following the Feb. 14, 2018, shooting.

"In essence, it was neglect of duty. We lost 17 people," Tony said.

While the shooter was a student, he was feared so much he was searched everyday for weapons.

Take a deep breath before reading this article. It'll make your blood boil that this psychopath was coddled to this extent. "Crazy Boy" was an accurate description.

It couldn't be clearer that the Parkland shooting was allowed to happen. The blame should fall on those who were in the most senior positions of authority...Sheriff Israel and the school administration.
