Deputy Peterson Heard Shots Coming From ‘Inside’ School

The speculation that Deputy Scot Peterson hid while Nikolas Cruz slaughtered 17 people due to his inability to determine where the firing was taking place just got destroyed.

The Miami Herald has released a transcript of audio recordings between Peterson and the Sheriff’s dispatch in which he clearly states firing is coming from building 12.

Then — wait for it — he ordered other deputies to stay back at least 500 feet.

So Cruz was able to slip out of the building and 17 people lay dead or dying in the building while Peterson ordered deputies to not to go in.

That is confirmation of the failure of the century.

Peterson belongs in jail. Period.

Here’s more from Hotair…

Deputy Scot Peterson is the armed Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy who remained outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school during the shooting last month. Peterson was heavily criticized for his inaction and, through his lawyer, released a statement saying he, “believed that those gunshots were originating from outside of any of the buildings on the school campus.” Today the Miami Herald reports that audio recordings of police dispatch indicate Peterson knew almost right away that the shots were coming from a specific building.

Internal radio dispatches released by the sheriff’s office Thursday show Peterson immediately fixated on Building 12 and even radioed that gunfire was happening “inside.”

And, just as school shooter Nikolas Cruz was fleeing the building after killing 17 people, Peterson warned his fellow officers to stay away — even as wounded students and staff lay inside.
