Retired 'Coward' Deputy Who Stayed Outside During Parkland Shooting Receives Massive Pension

Surveilance video from February 14 showed Peterson waiting outside the school while the shooter went through the halls with an AR-15 rifle shooting and killing students and teachers.

When told he was going to be suspended without pay pending an investigation into his actions, the 33-year law enforcement veteran opted to retire, which comes with a hefty pension that Peterson started receiving in April, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

Gov. Rick Scott says he can not deny a monthly pension of $8,700 to the former Broward sheriff's deputy who failed to enter Marjory Stoneman Douglas High during the February 14 mass shooting.

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

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

Scot Peterson, the disgraced ex-cop who allegedly stood by as the crazed Parkland school shooter gunned down 17 people, is living large.

"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.

In addition, Peterson has been named in a wrongful death suit by Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow died in the shooting.

Personnel records indicated Peterson had stellar reviews before the shooting.

In March, it was revealed that despite Peterson's claims, he actually called in a report that he heard gunshots "by, inside the 1200 building," according to dispatch audio of the incident.

About 18 months before the shooting, Peterson attempted to have Cruz involuntarily committed over mental health concerns.

A second father, Fred Guttenberg, whose lost his daughter Jaime that tragic day, also expressed his disgust via Twitter.

In response to the Herald/Times request for a response, Scott's office said: "Because no charges have been filed, the state is required to provide his pension under Florida law but our agency will be closely monitoring the FDLE investigation for any updates".
