Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has revealed that the armed school resource officer never went into the building where the Parkland shooting occurred. The officer has resigned according to reports.
Are government officials trying to distract us from the bigger picture? This is awfully fishy.
The police officer assigned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School resigned Thursday, under investigation for failing to enter the building as a gunman opened fire and killed 17 people.
Sheriff Scott Israel said Deputy Scot Peterson should have “went in. Addressed the killer. Killed the killer.”
Video footage showed Peterson did none of that, Israel said.
“What I saw was a deputy arrive … take up a position and he never went in,” the sheriff said at a news conference.
Israel said Peterson resigned, and subsequently retired, after Israel suspended him without pay earlier in the day. An investigation into Peterson will continue, the sheriff said.
