Roundly vilified for not entering a Parkland high school during a mass shooting, Broward Deputy Scot Peterson insisted publicly that he believed that gunfire was happening outside on campus not from inside the building.
But internal radio dispatches released by the sheriff's office Thursday show Peterson immediately fixated on Building 12 and even radioed that gunfire was happening inside.
And, just as school shooter Nikolas Cruz was fleeing the building after killing 17 people, Peterson warned his fellow officers to stay away even as wounded students and staff lay inside . . .
Do not approach the 12 or 1300 building, stay at least 500 feet away, Peterson said over the radio, according to the records released Thursday.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. In this case, away from danger. Scot Peterson had no thought of going into harms way.
There is nobody coming to protect you. It is up to YOU to protect yourself and your loved ones.
Manliness and Honor have been nearly scrubbed from our society.
Hey, he probably wasn’t finished with his donut.
“There is nobody coming to protect you. It is up to YOU to protect yourself and your loved ones. “
Democrats don’t want to let you.
When seconds count, the police are at least 500 feet away . . . and staying there. That's why I like my friends Colt, Kimber, Sig, and Les Baer. My friends respond at 900+ fps, and more important, they respond.
If someone in the school was speeding they would have rushed in immediately. But there was no money to be made just stopping a mass killer.
Truth be known he probably was inside the building when the fireworks started and immediately tore ass as far away as he could get,
He’s certainly a disgrace to his uniform.
“When seconds count, the police are at least 500 feet away . . . and staying there”
Forming a perimeter.
If they listened to him then they were derelict in their duty. He wasn’t their commanding officer, and his orders should have had no bearing on their actions.
Except that the dispatcher echoed Petersons instructions.
Best you can say, they didnt exercise initiative and ride to the sound of the guns.
Multiple gunshots inside a school is a desperate situation. Desperate response is indicated.
All of which would have been mooted by preventing Cruz from following through on his threats.
When seconds count, the police are at least 500 feet away . . . and staying there
Forming a perimeter.
Shooting any suspicious dogs that wander through and going home safe.
Almost sounds like it was planned for the purpose of confiscation of all firearms.
He thought it was fireworks.
Can not rule out possibility that this was a dry run for future shenanigans by infiltrated police forces all over America.
Cold coffee sucks!! /s
Had to pull his shorts on...
