Kirsters Baish| Shocking new video footage was just released by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office today. This new video footage shows an armed deputy simply standing outside of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School all the while Nikolas Cruz was spraying bullets over crowds of students and faculty inside.
The 27 minute clip was released by the Department. It shows the chaos as the shooting unfolded along with what happened after 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz stopped shooting at the Parkland, Florida high school. He killed seventeen innocent victims.
Surveillance footage of the school clearly shows Deputy Scott Peterson standing outside the school building. He does not enter the building even after hearing multiple gunshots. Windows were shattering and students were screaming, but Peterson did nothing.
From the beginning, Peterson claimed that he thought the shooter was outside of the school, more specifically somewhere close to the football field. There is doubt that this is true since dispatch audio that was recently released contains Peterson telling fellow officers to “stay away” from two specific buildings where Cruz had been.
Watch the shocking footage below:
It sure looks like Deputy Peterson didn’t care about the lives of the teens inside the school who were being shot at enough to go inside and do something to help. Peterson has a lot of explaining to do now that this footage has been released. The more evidence that comes out, the more we are left believing that a lot more could have been done to save lives at the scene of the mass shooting, but law enforcement dropped the ball in a big way. 17 innocent people lost their lives on February 14 at the hands of Nikolas Cruz. It’s time for Peterson to take responsibility for his part in this.
