Broward Sheriff Releases Footage Of Deputy Outside During Parkland Shooting

The week after the shooting, Israel assailed Peterson for his response, describing the video recording as showing the deputy heading to the building, taking up a position outside and then failing to rush in to confront the gunman, breaking with generally accepted police practice.

Peterson's attorney has argued that his client responded appropriately and did nothing wrong. The sheriff's office said in a statement Thursday, "The video speaks for itself".

A judge ordered the release of the video Thursday.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said Peterson was suspended without pay, and chose to resign. He said the question is why he didn't: was it because of Peterson's individual character or something about the culture in the Broward Sheriff's Office that made him avoid a deadly force situation?

The Broward Count Sheriff's Department issued a statement about the release of the video, which the department did not appeal.

According to the Daily Mail, she chatted with schoolchildren and teachers outside Westminster Abbey. The course is held at the SAS's Herefordshire headquarters where Markle recently spent two days.

"His actions were enough to warrant an internal affairs investigation, as requested by Sheriff Scott Israel on February 21".

"Do not approach the 12 or 1300 building, stay at least 500 feet away at this point", Peterson said, according to call logs at 2:28pm, seven minutes after the first shots were fired. He said it confirms that Peterson should have entered the building: that is an almost-universal response in police training after the 1999 Columbine High and 2012 Sandy Hook school shootings.

Sheriff Israel castigated Peterson a little more than a week after the shooting, saying he should have "went in, addressed the killer, killed the killer".

On Wednesday Broward County Judge Elizabeth Scherer entered a not guilty plea on Cruz's behalf, after his lawyers indicated he would stand mute, or refuse to plead either innocent or guilty.

The videos have been a source of interest since investigations began into the actions of several law enforcement officials, including Peterson, who reportedly failed to immediately enter the school building, as officers are trained to do. Video of what happened inside the school was not released.
