Scot Peterson Fired By BSO, Criminally Charged Over Actions During Marjory Stoneman Douglas High Shooting

FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Shortly after being fired by the Broward Sheriff’s Office, former deputy Scot Peterson was arrested by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for his actions during and after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

Shortly after taking command of the department, Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony focused an internal investigation on seven deputies to determine whether their actions at MSD High School on February 14, 2018 complied with Broward Sheriff’s Office standards.

On Tuesday, Tony announced the termination of Peterson and Sergeant Brian Miller who were found to have neglected their duties.
Peterson’s arrest by the FDLE came as a result of a 15-month investigation into the actions of law enforcement following the shooting. He’s been charged with seven counts of neglect of a child and three counts of culpable negligence and one count of perjury.

“The FDLE investigation shows former Deputy Peterson did absolutely nothing to mitigate the MSD shooting that killed 17 children, teachers and staff and injured 17 others,” said FDLE Commissioner Rick Swearingen said in a statement. “There can be no excuse for his complete inaction and no question that his inaction cost lives.”

About damned time!

I second the motion.   It should be grounds to yank his 100K+ pension.
