    The “do nothing” Florida deputy who stayed outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS as a killer stalked its halls was lauded in 2014 for his work. Scot Peterson, who resigned his post as a school resource officer last week, was hailed by the Broward County Crime Commission as a School Resource Officer of the Year for handling issues “with tact and judgment.” The commission, whose motto is “Evil triumphs when good people stand idly by,” applauded Peterson’s “numerous investigations and follow-ups entailing property crimes, assaults and narcotics violations.”

    I’m normally slow to criticize law enforcement, but this is ridiculous. In addition to the FBI’s already well-publicized failure to follow up when a YouTube video producer alerted the bureau to a comment by Nikolas Cruz about wanting to be a school shooter, we have this, courtesy of Ed Driscoll of InstaPundit: “I don’t know how he got the debit card, but he did,” she said. “And he took it, and he bought all these rifles and ammunition and he posted pictures of them on the Instagram.” Another of the woman’s stunning revelations: Cruz was obsessed with ISIS. “He’s so...

    A report released Friday claims four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the attack was occurring. On February 22 Breitbart News reported that one deputy resigned after it was learned that he was on scene but failed to control Nikolas Cruz. Sheriff Israel told ABC 13 that video shows the deputy, Scott Peterson, “arrive at the west side of Building 12” and “take a position” outside the school — but never go inside. The sheriff’s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place. Now CNN reports...

    Four armed officers and years of warnings did nothing to stop Nikolas Cruz from massacring 17 people at a high school. Not one but four sheriff’s deputies hid behind cars instead of storming Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS in Parkland, Fla., during Wednesday’s school shooting, police claimed Friday — as newly released records revealed the Broward County Sheriff’s Office had received at least 18 calls about the troubled teen over the past decade. Sources from Coral Springs, Fla., Police Department tell CNN that when its officers arrived on the scene Wednesday, they were shocked to find three Broward County Sheriff’s deputies...

    The local sheriff’s office received at least 18 calls about Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz over the past decade — including warnings that were passed on to the disgraced school deputy who failed to stop the massacre, according to a damning new report. Records of calls about Cruz to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office reveal that in February 2016, neighbors called to say they feared he “planned to shoot up the school” after posing for Instagram photos with firearms, USA Today reports. The information was passed on to the sheriff’s on-site officer at Stoneman Douglas High School, Deputy Scot...
