Video shows Florida deputy never entered building during school massacre

Share

Security footage of the former deputy at Stoneman Douglas High School pokes holes in his claim that he heard shots coming from outside on that fateful February 14 day.

Mr Peterson was suspended, and then resigned, after the shooting when Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel reviewed video footage of the shooting, and heard witness accounts that indicated the former school resource officer had waited to enter the building during the massacre.

The video released Thursday shows Peterson going toward the high school building while a gunman massacred 17 students and staff members, but stayed outside with his handgun drawn.

Citing "strong public interest", a Broward judge last week ordered public release of the four video clips from the surveillance system at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High.

The footage shows a man, identified by police as Peterson, at 2.23 p.m. approaching the wall of the school's Building 12 and standing there for several minutes.

Peterson retired last month after Sheriff Scott Israel said an internal investigation had been opened to examine why the deputy did not enter the school to engage the killer, who murdered 17 people.

Meanwhile, Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, has said that Johnson's accusation against the Russian president was unforgivable. Russian Federation has demanded that Britain share samples collected by investigators.

In part of the footage released on Thursday (Friday NZT), Peterson is obscured by a pole, but other portions of the recording show him standing still.

While outside, Peterson provided frequent updates on police radio, according to a timeline provided by the sheriff's office, including directing other officers to the building on the large campus and asking for nearby streets to be shut down.

Law enforcement on multiple levels has come under fire for the response to the shooting, which took the lives of 17 people.

Instead Peterson hid behind a concrete column outside the building, where the killing was taking place, until the gunfire ended.

Responding to reports, he arrived outside the freshman building almost two minutes later, issuing his first radio transmission: "Be advised we have possible, could be firecrackers, I think we have shots fired, possible shots fired - 1200 building".

He then called for backup and for the school and a nearby intersection to be shutdown. Speaking to dispatch, Peterson said "We also heard it's by, inside the 1200 building".

The suspected shooter, Nikolas Cruz, a former student, allegedly fled with students after the shooting, and later was apprehended.

"The video speaks for itself", the statement said.

His attorney reiterated that Cruz would plead guilty if prosecutors waived the death penalty, which they refused to do.

The transmissions also show that Capt. Jan Jordan never radioed orders to deputies telling them to stay out of the building, as some media have reported.

In this case, he said: "The innocent bystanders were inside".

President Trump said of Peterson, "When it came time to get in there and do something, he didn't have the courage". "There was not a good reason to set up a perimeter".

Exactly how good a pro wrestler Rousey is at this point is being somewhat hidden from the fans, and understandably so. The worst thing that will happen is I'll look stupid, which is not the worst thing that could really happen.
