The school resource officer Scott Peterson resigned after it was revealed he would be suspended without pay, for his role in not engaging the school shooter when he clearly had the opportunity to do so.


Sheriff Scott Israel during a press conference Thursday said video showed Peterson arriving at the west side of the building where the shooting took place. Peterson, Israel said, took up a position but "never went in."

Deputy resigns FOX

Such a shame. There were so many warning signs and chances to stop this tragedy. I guess not everyone is cut out to be a hero. But it was his JOB!! wow

Just heard that!

Damn! I thought the kid took out the guards.

Another thing that was said was that the CCTV system is on a 20 min delay.

So no real time surveillance.

Sad, that guard is gonna have some problems.

Since the odds of any given school getting hit any given year are so slim to none, he mussa figured he could sign on to be a hero but never actually have to be. Like a weird twist on Stolen Valor.

Why is the CCTV even delayed twenty (20!!) minutes? It´s like delaying a firealarm, it just does not make sense/compute.

Hero? The guy was afraid, a human thing but if he signed on to this job you are signing on a job to die.

I won’t judge him though. He was just afraid.

We all hope that when something like this horrible thing happens we can do the brave thing.

I work in schools everyday and when looking at the kids can't help thinking about the kids dying; really breaks your heart.

He'll have to live with his cowardice for the rest of his life.

No sympathy.

If he was a shoe repairman, then I would not expect him to do anything.

But that's not the path he chose.

He froze.


Shame!

I'm trying to understand it from a technological perspective but it doesn't fit

maybe someone who understands security can be more helpful

Something wrong with the recruitment if people like this get in.

Remember those nuts with machetes and things in London? UNARMED cops were running like hell towards them, not away.

Damn sure there are plenty of Yanks who are the same, so why are people like this getting such a job?

F#cking coward. Why accepting the job in the first place if you're to afraid to protect the pupils when it happens? Give the job to veterans because they clearly care and can handle such situations.

Human error it could happen to us all.
I expect drones or ED-209 type robots to be in US schools If all this continues.

I tried doing some research on this. If it is just a single live camera, the time delay is in the order of milliseconds. But what happens is that they install dozens of camera, to save costs, they use one monitor and electronic switching to go from one camera to another. If you display each camera for 15 seconds, then 80 cameras would give a delay of 20 minutes.

You can train, you can mentally prepare yourself, but, until that first moment of truth you don’t truly know how you will react. If you haven’t been in that life and death situation you have no right to judge.

You can not like it even hate it but you can’t make a tangible judgement about it.

Bit harsh that.
I have seen the bravest freeze up in certain situations and the weakest step up in others.
We were not there in his shoes he will have to judge himself that is enough.

No, not really. It was never his job! His duty was to "contain" a situation. Not die in doing so. LEOs have no obligation to "die" for anyone. Nor are they obligated, "to protect and serve". That has already been decided by "law".

That "legal" question has already been decided in U.S. "law".

He did what he was trained to do. Uphold the "law". After all, he is a "leo"? Citizen's are not the law.

He was, "armed, so he could make it safe back home tonight". After all, LEOs see "war zones", everyday, all day long! These "blue" "heroes" need guns to protect themselves from who they "protect and serve ".

It's disturbing, I know,.. but I'm glad he didn't get himself killed. It would've been more of a media circus.
