Deputy Scot Peterson — who resigned in disgrace from his position as a school resource officer last week — said through a lawyer that he believed the shooter was outside the high school and that protocol demanded he “seek cover,” according to the Miami Herald.

 

“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,” DiRuzzo said in the statement.

  1. Oh, so I guess that does it. Nothing more to be said. The lawyer has spoken so obviously it’s %100 percent the truth. Mr. Peterson should be honored by the White House for his tremendous bravery. What an American icon and hero. I can’t wait to purchase the new board game with his likeness pictured in the center. I already bought t shirts and shot glasses with his picture on it. Hopefully next year he’ll get the halftime show at the Superbowl.
