As one of the largest mass shootings in modern U.S. history unfolded, Peterson never entered the building where alleged gunman Nikolas Cruz was opening fire and instead took up a position outside the building that was under attack.
Peterson, 55, was widely criticized for his actions and Broward Sheriff Scott Israel opened an internal investigation. The deputy resigned and retired on Feb. 23, rather than face possible termination.
Peterson, the Sun-Sentinel reported, has received a monthly state pension of $8,702.35 since April. He was paid $101,879.03 last year, according to the news outlet, which cited sheriffs office records.
The former deputy stood by his actions after the shooting. His lawyer said in a statement at the time that 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.

Not $8,000...He gets nearly $9,000 per month for life...
These sorry bastards stack the deck on over time and everybody knows it and they rake in a king’s ransom in pension at taxpayer expense. There is not enough money to pay any of them and none of them are worth what they are paid as pension. The answer to broke and bankrupt public pension systems that are far too lush to begin with is to raise taxes on people who can’t even dream of retiring on a GUARANTEED FOR LIFE income at age 55.
Every time I see this crap it makes me mad as hell.
>> He gets nearly $9,000 per month for life...
No one in that pathetic town is motivated to address the gross negligence that facilitated the massacre.
17 died for a district that supports an indifferent form of Liberalism.
“There are TWO types of civvies: Those I’ve arrested and those I have YET to arrest...”
History repeats itself. This is like what happened with the British, but this is much worse, especially in Democrat majority states/cities.
He will be haunted with his disgraceful inaction the rest of his days.We haven’t heard the last of him is my bet.
At $2,500. a week, he could not care less what anyone thinks.
Broward county......nuff said.
I feel damn lucky to be getting half that amount.
Ironic, isn’t it? There probably weren’t any two teachers in the school he failed to protect who made $102,000 between them.
That money has the blood of the children who died at Parkland HS on every filthy bill!
No wonder public employee pension systems are going broke.
Bet he eats his pistol.
Thats what I was thinking.
AND I GET TOLD BY NC MEDICARE THAT I MAKE TOO MUCH MONEY AT $1,200.00 a Month!
