“Broward Coward” Scot Peterson Who Hid During School Shooting Cashes Out With Huge Pension, Over $100K A Year FOR LIFE!

Disgraced Parkland Officer Scot Peterson is getting $100k a year for the rest of his life (via Twitter)

PARKLAND — Scot Peterson, the armed school resource officer who was present at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for the February massacre that killed 17 students and teachers, resigned in disgrace following the revelation that he hid outside the school while he knew the shooting was going on.

It appears that “disgrace” is the full extent of the formal punishment Peterson will receive, as he’s still eligible to draw his whopping $8,702.35-a-month state pension.

Peterson’s pension amount was determined by a formula factoring in his 32 years on the job and averaging his highest-earning five years.

For the cowardly cop, whose base salary last year was $75,673.72, the pension actually constitutes a raise, and Peterson, 54, will be receiving it for the rest of his life.

The pension could be revoked only if Peterson were to be convicted of a crime, but his hasty resignation makes it unlikely that he will be called to account for his failure to act during the Parkland massacre.

When totaled, the gratuitous pension amounts to over $100,000 year, and over $3,000,000 of pay-outs if Peterson lives another 30 years, which is entirely possible.

One (of many) who feels that the former school resource officer deserves something other than a long retirement in the lap of luxury for his performance is Andrew Pollack, father of 17-year-old student Meadow Pollack (who was killed in the mass shooting), who recently filed suit against Peterson for his failure to act.

“He could have stopped [the shooter].” Pollack stated simply. “Could have saved my kid. Nobody should be able to not do their job, receive a pension and ride off into the sunset.”

Presumably, Pollack is even more appalled now that excessive amount of that pension has been disclosed.

Meadow’s brother, Hunter Pollack, added via his Twitter account: “My family wants the world to know this is the guy that hid behind a concrete wall while kids and teachers were killed.”

Peterson has found few friends in the aftermath of shooting. Even his colleague Scott Israel, the Broward County Sheriff, spoke out against the resource officer in distinctly unflattering terms.

“It makes me sick to my stomach that we had a deputy that didn’t go in,” Israel said.

The Pollack family are also suing the shooting suspect, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, but Andrew has acknowledged that Peterson is his “main target.”

Joseph DiRuzzo, Peterson’s attorney, spoke in his defense immediately following the shooting.

“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.

It’s something a court will ultimately have to decide. In any event, it appears that Mr. Pollack’s “target” in the civil suit may have deeper pockets than anyone suspected.

    what a bunch of armchair quarterback witchhunty scapegoaty finger-pointy crapola heros you all are. it was an active shooter situation you idiots. you never heard of the term “taking cover & concealment” ? morons. that’s not hiding. it’s procedure, and critical to ensure communication and updated info while sufficient reinforcement and firepower to confidently engage overwhelm and 100% diffuse a hostile environment. dumbasses. Have ANY of you morons any actual formal official training ? as an aside the officer is age 54, probably not track meet material or expected to be AFTER 32 YEARS OF HONORABLE SERVICE ALREADY TO HIS CREDIT you mongoloid retards. bush leaguers. My God you people turn my stomach. Just because he didn’t try to live up to YOUR MISGUIDED IDEALS that are based on HOLLYWOOD FICTION, not reality-based common sense, prudent decision making, & decades of actual firsthand testimonials and lessons learned by seasoned experienced combat veterans, does NOT make him EITHER a coward or wrong. YOU ARE THE ONE WHO IS WRONG. (the euphemistic “you” who either posted negative comment here, agrees with it, or agrees with the venomous slant and character smear campaign of this artice, conspicuously worded to skew and defame this officer’s reputation and ruin the rest of his living days by branding and tarnishing him personally. Get off the witchhunt bandwagon already, you thumbsucking pondscum of human beings. HOW DARE YOU point the finger like that… You find one, what you PERCEIVE AS, a POTENTIAL or POSSIBLE, inaction of ONE, yes ONE (1) individual and then Presto..bingo… ur all now Sherlock Holmes.. you figured it all out,did you ?? Nice Try… BUT UR JUST PLAIN WRONG.. and not even close. Let me put this to you in moron-friendly that even your densely thick skulls may comprehend. If the officer’s conduct and/or action were so pitifully wrong as depicted in this dreck here and other slanderous posts, then the gentleman officer would be facing his own disciplinary action(s) within his department, not instantly granted full benefits WITHOUT SO MUCH AS A FLINCH OF AN EYELASH… and that’s because he followed protocol. You idiots !! He conformed to procedure. If I CHOSE to step outside the norm or the typical, that’s an OPTION, but it is NOT A REQUIREMENT… STICKING UR NECK OUT AS TARGET PRACTICE TO AN ACTIVE SHOOTER IS NOT MANDATORY !!!! …Why can’t you imbeciles get that simple physical construct situated within your peanut craniums correctly ?? I’d love to see ANY of YOU glass house dwellers in a similar engagement, and see what a “big hero” and how valiant and courageous you are THEN … Two-faced renegade wannabees..that’s what you REALLY are.. Platoon Sergeant or Field Commanders YOU ARE NOT, and wouldn’t have a CLUE what to do OR WHY…. Remember that officer was at that location after already serving 32 years in service. THIRTY-TWO-YEARS ?? Bruh.. that’s a LONG LONG LONG TIME… In just about any OTHER line of work, or scenario, he would NOT have been at THAT type of location, he would have been behind a desk, or some job description OTHER THAN still out in the field humping his butt and RISKING HIS LIFE like a guy with 3.2 years, or 13.2 years…. NOT THIRTY TWO FULL ACTUAL YEARS… Can you hear me now Verizon… Oh for god sakes…. I’m praying god shows mercy on this officer’s namesake and the protection of his family and whatever he values for the remainder of his time with us… And I’m praying for you too, that one day, you’ll understand compassion, tolerance, acceptance, and real honest to goodness GRATITUDE instead of treating other people, after they invested their entire lives and careers into trying to honorably help and keep your sorryass alive, like disposable and discardable inanimate material objects… So deplorably tragic…that this society will so willingly do something like this… to somebody that never said a cross word or raised a finger AT YOU… You all should be ashamed of yourselves..
