Peterson was named school resource officer of the year in 2014 and was nominated twice for the award. A supervisor wrote that the officer was "dependable and reliable and handles issues that arise with tact and solid judgment." Performance reports dating back decades contained similar sentiments, calling Peterson a “team player,” “model employee,” and “dedicated.” But Peterson was also the subject of at least two complaints, one of which was related to the Resident on Campus Security Program. In 1994, he was accused of conduct unbecoming an employee in a charge that was ultimately dropped. In 2015, he sent an email to school board members that called out the leadership of now-former Broward District School Police Chief Anthony Williams, who oversaw the Resident on Campus Security Program. The BCSD questioned Peterson’s discretion in sending the email and ultimately recommended he undergo counseling.
I am wondering what his concern was in the email. Perhaps having only a handgun was one of them. Not very effective in a mass shooting incident , and an assault weapon and body armor would just look so scary on a high school campus. I think that there may be more to the story then we are being told.
Yeah so scary.
About as scary as a shooter?
Did Cruz have body armor or the cop?
They need to charge that police officer who stood by and did nothing while 17 children were mowed down with dereliction of Duty...

Many great men have frozen when the bullets start flying and the adrenaline starts flowing
You forgot the next part :
Then they react .
Nope. Not in the experience of thousands of great men who have melted when the bullets started flying. Just ask anyone who ever went to war.
Then , how were they great men in respect to combat ?
And I have spoke with folks that were in combat. In WW2 , my great uncle won the purple heart at the battle of the bulge at Bastogne. With the 81st Airborne. First , he was reprimanded for not falling back when ordered. He gently replied "How do I do that with a 9mm slug in my hip ?
My best friend's dad served with General Patton's 3rd Army from Italy on...
My dad was 101st airborne and fought in Korea. Yes , he was one of the group that had moved deep into NK and was forced to retreat by the Chinese regulars. They fought their way all the way back to SK . One inch at a time.
My friend's brother and more than a few of my older friends fought in Vietnam . Some didnt come back.
Do not speak to me of what you think US combat veterans are
You are not qualified.
