Former Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson – who was criticized for how he responded when a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School – has been charged with 11 counts, including felony child neglect charges, authorities said.
Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Richard Swearingen insisted after the hearing that Peterson was “technically qualified as a caregiver under statute.”
I’m a little surprised nobody has mentioned this latest development. So the former deputy has been charged. 11 counts.
As you can see, some disagree.
It would seem some want revenge. I’ve never seen a case like this brought against a cop, so I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I will say this, it’s very easy to sit in the bleachers and claim what one would have done. Everybody’s a hero until the nut cuttin’ starts.
It will be interesting to see how this unfolds. It could significantly change law enforcement. I can’t imagine they’re happy about it.
