When a shooter entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine’s Day and began shooting students and teachers, Scot Peterson, a former Broward County Deputy was seen on video taking up a position OUTSIDE the building. He remained outside while the students were being shot. He claimed that he was taking up a tactical position outside the building, but many, including myself, believe Peterson was to afraid to enter the building, leaving students and teachers at the mercy of a crazed shooter.

After months of criticism and reflection, Peterson is now saying that knowing what he knows now, he would enter the school building in a heartbeat.

(Breitbart) – Broward County deputy Scot Peterson says knowing what he knows now he would enter the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School “in a heartbeat” if he was there when a shooting occurred.

Peterson came under heavy scrutiny in the immediate aftermath of the February 14 attack on Stoneman Douglas when it was learned that he stood outside the building throughout the attack. As pressure mounted he resigned his position rather than face suspension over his decision not to enter and confront the gunman.

Surveillance video from the school was released March 15 and it appears to show Peterson arriving on scene approximately 90 seconds into the six-minute attack. It then appears to show him standing outside the building while the last four and a half minutes of the attack play out…

It’s always easy to say you would have responded differently after the fact, but the truth is, he didn’t enter the building at the time. This why just having armed security on a campus isn’t enough and why it’s so vitally necessary for the training and arming of teachers and school staff in every school building in the United States.
