BROWARD COWARD: Officer Who HID During Shooting Gets $8K/Month Pension

BROWARD COWARD: Officer Who HID During Shooting Gets $8K/Month Pension

Pension payments are based on the 32 years he worked and the average of his five highest-paid fiscal years.

Peterson maintains that he did nothing wrong by remaining outside the school during the deadly shooting.

Peterson was thrown under the bus by Sheriff Scott Israel, who said at the time that the deputy should have "went in".

Surveillance video of the Parkland shooting showed the officer approaching the high school building in which suspect shooter Nikolas Cruz was stalking the halls, but he then backed away and stayed outside with his handgun drawn. However, if the investigation finds wrongdoing on Peterson's part, he could still lose his pension, the Sentinel reported.

"The allegations that Mr. Peterson was a coward and that his performance, under the circumstances, failed to meet the standards of police officers are patently untrue", a statement from his lawyer said.

Andrew Pollack, the father of victim Meadow Pollack, called Peterson "the coward of Broward" on Twitter, and a legislator, Rep. Jared Moskowitz, D-Coral Springs, called on Scott to take away Peterson's pension. The newspaper has reported that Peterson's personnel file was filled with commendations.

Pollack has fired a wrongful death lawsuit against Peterson, among others who allegedly failed to prevent the gunman from committing the massacre on Valentine's Day.

"The coward of broward, Scot Peterson is getting over $8k a month pension!"

Peterson was initially suspended without pay, though Israel said he was eyeing Peterson's termination, and the school resource officer resigned shortly thereafter.

About 18 months before the shooting, Peterson attempted to have Cruz involuntarily committed over mental health concerns. Fred Guttenberg's daughter Jaime was killed in the attack. He faces 17 charges of first-degree murder.

Timothy Donnelly, an assistant state attorney, responded that the agency is waiting for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to complete its investigation, ordered by Florida Gov. Rick Scott.
