Outrageous! This Is What Happened to the Armed Guard at Stoneman High


People have asked where the armed deputy was when Nikolas Cruz was rampaging through Stoneman High. The answer has always been, we have 45 acres to patrol. As it turns out, that wasn’t the issue.

The sheriff’s deputy at Stoneman Douglas High School never went in while the gunman shot up the children and killed two staff members.  The school resource officer assigned to the school did nothing and waited outside. This is according to the NY Times and CNN.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said video footage showed the deputy, Scot Peterson, arrive on the west side of the high school’s freshman building and take up a position. Peterson, though, did not enter the school.

He was armed and in uniform.

When reporters asked what the deputy should have done, Israel said Peterson should have: “Went in, addressed the killer, killed the killer.”

He added he was: “Devastated. Sick to my stomach. There are no words.”

He Gets to Retire

Peterson was suspended without pay but has since retired before an internal investigation could take place.

The video has not been released and might never be.

Seventeen people were murdered and more than a dozen others were wounded. The man charged with protecting them sat outside.

He isn’t the only one who failed in his duty. The FBI failed to follow up on two warnings, the school underreacted after 20 violent episodes, social services underreacted, and the police did nothing through 39 calls to the home. We now find out a deputy let the killer tear through the school killing people.

Therefore, who do we blame? We blame Republicans, the rifle, the NRA, and President Trump. That’s the insane society we currently live in.


  1. But Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel still wants more gun control, which only effects law abiding citizens, this guy on Jake Tapper the Yapper’s town hall came across as a political idiot, when are these goofball politicians going to admit its not the gun, its the breakdown of our society!!

    • His position is bad. Some say he was pressured to support gun control. Otherwise his department would be hit with huge lawsuits for not handling this shooter ahead of time.

  2. Should have known I could have found this out here! With more information! Thanks S. Noble! Need to get you on the liberty daily!

  3. I blame the officer but also wonder if he was told to not enter. It’s hard to trust anything a law enforcement chief says after what the FBI has been doing.

  4. Its not just the armed guard that’s to blame, from the Miami Hearld……….long before Cruz embarked on the worst school shooting in Florida history, Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies had multiple warnings that the 19-year-old was a violent threat and a potential school shooter, according to records released Thursday.In November, a tipster called BSO to say Cruz “could be a school shooter in the making” but deputies did not write up a report on that warning. It came just weeks after a relative called urging BSO to seize his weapons. Two years ago, according to a newly released timeline of interactions with Cruz’s family, a deputy investigated a report that Cruz “planned to shoot up the school” — intelligence that was forwarded to the school’s resource officer, with no apparent result. Broward County law enforcement (Sheriff Israel), in conjunction with Broward County School Officials (Superintendent Runcie and School Board), have a standing policy to ignore any criminal engagement with High School students……………….The problem is, Cruz was not a student at the time some of these warnings came in to the sheriff’s office, regardless of that, the policy they had about not arresting students is INSANE !!!!!!!!

  5. The Deputy gets police protection……….. Fox News Reporters who attempted to approach the West Palm Beach home of ex-Broward County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Scot Peterson were reportedly met with resistance from at least six police officers who were standing guard outside.So let me try to understand this BS, the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office (and the Broward Sheriff’s Office) can find only one cop with a gun for a school but six cops with guns to stand guard over this assclown’s house and barricade it against anyone approaching it or him. Oh, and not barricade it just against people with weapons who intend to do him harm either — they have also barricaded it against a news crew armed only with cameras so this ******* doesn’t have to actually face the public about his outrageous conduct.
