[Ed. – Pure and unadulterated cowardice]
Former Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy Scot Peterson spoke out about the Marjory Stoneman Douglas massacre, but parents and students said his story does not sound like the whole truth.
Peterson said in a “Today Show” interview that he wasn’t a coward during the Feb. 14 shooting, but that he didn’t have a chance to enter the building where accused shooter Nikolas Cruz was firing off bullets.
Speaking with 7News on Tuesday, Stoneman Douglas student Brandon Huff said he was standing next to Peterson during the last few minutes of the shooting. Huff said Peterson wasn’t being truthful.
“I mean, he lies and he goes back and forth on his stories,” Huff said. “The biggest lie to me was probably that he didn’t know where the gunshots were coming from.”
Huff said on Feb. 14, he got a text from his girlfriend Jessica, who was inside the 1200 building. “As soon as I ran there, and I was next to him and a security guard, there were more gunshots going off,” Huff said. “As soon as I was there, he had already been there for a while.”
