PARKLAND, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A Broward County Court today demanded the release of surveillance video showing the actions — or inactions — of Deputy Scot Peterson on February 14th at Marjory Stoneman-Douglas High School. Peterson, who has since resigned from BSO, was the school resource officer criticized by the department for staying outside while students were slaughtered inside the school.
The video speaks for itself. His actions were enough to warrant an internal affairs investigation, as requested by Sheriff Scott Israel on Feb. 21. After being suspended without pay, Peterson chose to resign and immediately retired rather than face possible termination.
