Deputy Who DIDN'T STOP Florida Shooting Thinks He ‘DID A GOOD JOB’

The sheriff’s deputy who failed to engage the shooter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School “believed he did a good job” because he called in the location of the massacre and gave a description of the shooter, a top union official said Thursday.
“He believed he did a good job calling in the location, setting up the perimeter and calling in the description (of Cruz),” said the union official, Jim Bell.
During a press conference, Peterson was lambasted by his sheriff, Scott Israel for not engaging shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz last week as he slaughtered students and staff at Douglas High School in Parkland.
The union head said he didn’t want to second-guess Peterson — but strongly suggested that failing to take on Cruz was a mistake.
“We have to act, even if that means risking our lives to save many many more lives. I would demand that from our union members,” said Bell, still a working deputy.
“You’re listening to an execution every time you hear the rifle shot.”
Broward County sheriff Israel suspended Peterson without pay before the 33-year vet abruptly retired.
Peterson was not an association member, but sheriff’s brass asked Bell to contact him with the bad news.
