Scot Peterson, 56, was arrested Tuesday and charged with seven counts of neglect of a child, three counts of culpable negligence, and one count of perjury, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Rick Swearingen said Peterson did “absolutely nothing” to stop the shooting, which killed 17 and injured 17 others.

Please don't forget to also indite that wicked, politically corrupt Sheriff that allowed this festering excuse for a school system to exist by manipulating the statistical reporting of criminal activity by the students.

Yup, he's guilty! He wasn't paid to chat with a custodian.

I am amazed. This is the right thing for that worthless coward, but I didn't think it would happen. Wonderful news. I bet the jury will nail him to the wall.

Hope that means the corrupt Sheriff, believe it's Israel, or something close, also finds himself in similar trouble. And, hope the FL GOP is using the rules installed by the Obama administration that would restrict the reporting of violent instances at schools in hopes of reducing the need to send some to jail. However, those rules ended up allowing the behavior to go unreported that would likely have prevented the Parkland shooting since it would have provided the red flags, to educate people about the politicians who condone such rules/regulations.

This is wrong. Plenty of combat veterans will tell you that they had moments or more of inaction because they were scared out of their wits. Read "Red Badge of Courage". This guy was a 'resource officer', I get that, but when faced with that situation you tell me you will run in when everyone else is running out. He didn't kill those kids. The shooter did. His punishment is his action or inaction. He has to live with this forever. Making this poor sop the fall guy for the actions of some sick evil person is not right. I hear plenty of warriors out there talking but are you sure you would have gone in?

#6, I don't consider myself a hero, but I spent part of my time in the USAF working crash-rescue. I was involved in some situations that I have not ever talked about, even to my own family. And I did not shirk my duty. Avoid those generalizations about others. I have more respect for Scott Peterson the wife killer than I do for deputy sheriff Scot Peterson. His name should live in infamy. Here is the legal problem, though. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled, over the years, that a citizen has no right to expect to receive adequate police protection. I could see Chief Judas John Roberts writing the decision to reverse a conviction of the Broward County Coward, relying on precedent.

As #7 points out, every state in the union has a statute on the books absolving law enforcement of legal liability if they don't keep someone from being damaged, up to and including being killed, except in some very narrow cases where they are already in custody. He'll walk unless he has an idiot for a lawyer. That said, ask yourself why you and your fellow citizens allow politicians to deprive you of the most effective means of defending yourself when the courts have repeatedly said adults are responsible for their own and their family's protection, not the police? Hmmmm?

Peterson is 56 years old? He looks like 77 year-old Joe Biden’s fat twin brother. Guys like him frequently wind up in an urn before making it to 60. He probably wanted to get at in least five years of retirement before ‘the big one’ so he hid out during the massacre.

Innocent until proven guilty still applies even though the reported "facts?" look pretty bad. And, yes, even seasoned combat veterans may have weak moments. However, that never absolves anyone from doing his sworn duty when the chips are down. Being a sheriff's deputy is a voluntary position. Until fairly recent times that was not always the case for military service. The bottom line being: If you are not willing to run towards the sound of gunfire, do not volunteer for a job that may require it.

Lack of courage is not criminal, even for a cop. It's easy to sit at my computer and type about how courageous i believe i would be, but one never knows until the time comes. It's fun to virtue signal about how courageous we would be, but i am glad we don't lock up the cowards. Not enough prison space and I'm not sure i might not fail such a test (even though I pray I would not) and end up there myself.

Number 7 and 8 have the right of it. It seems settled in law that the police have no duty to protect us. Good book to read is "Dial 911 and Die." There is just not a duty for him to protect any individual. Think past this fact situation. If actions by the police were open for challenge as to did they do enough? Any time someone was injured the State could be brought to court. A lawyer can always find something to bring up as not meeting some standard and the courts would be swamped. I don't like how they acted, but Monday morning quarterbacking just won't work.

I dont know that imprisonment is the answer as it sets a precident that will later be abused. An official findind, fired....loss of benefits and a lifetime of shame seem adequate.

OK, I'm going against the grain but I can't help wondering if we would not be starting down the slippery slope. If a person can be prosecuted for inaction such as in this case, what might happen to anyone who ,for what ever reason, didn't get involved in any situation where someone needed help and help would be considered beneficial. He should have helped, YES, however I am thinking this is not the way to go.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi told senior Democrats that she’d like to see President Donald Trump “in prison” as she clashed with House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler in a meeting on Tuesday night over whether to launch impeachment proceedings. (Snip) “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison,” Pelosi said, according to multiple Democratic sources familiar with the meeting. Instead of impeachment, Pelosi still prefers to see Trump defeated at the ballot box and then prosecuted for his alleged crimes, according to the sources. They said she was expressing solidarity with pro-impeachment Democrats

Democrats want to bring a panel of psychiatrists to Washington to suggest that President Donald Trump is mentally unfit to be president. Kentucky Democratic Rep. John Yarmuth has been tasked with coordinating the project, now planned for July, the Washington Examiner reported Wednesday. “We’re planning to put together an event … a town hall. We haven’t actually determined the format,” Yarmuth said.Dr. Bandy Lee, a persistent critic of the president who believes Trump’s state of mental health makes him unfit for office, is slated to lead the team of psychiatrists. Lee teaches at the Yale School of Medicine and is the editor of the book,

I don’t think it is a coincidence that just as President Trump is in the UK we suddenly learn that “dossier” author Christopher Steele has agreed to be questioned by US authorities. (snip) I have all along believed that part of President Trump’s mission in the UK was winning over British support for fully outing the role of its intelligence services in the Russia Hoax. He would have to guarantee that the overall relationship would remain sound even if highly embarrassing facts come to light.

Let’s be clear about a few things regarding “carbon taxes”. First, the system of taxing carbon emissions, also known as “cap-n-trade”, has absolutely nothing to do with climate change. Second a “carbon tax” is the holy grail for the totalitarian globalist world view. The concept of a tax on carbon emissions was developed inside the same financial network of multinational monetary interests that control the current global trade system. Powerful financial interests directly connected to The World Bank (WB), International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Trade Organization (WTO), together with global banking interests connected to Wall Street and

A hurdler who competed as a man last year won an NCAA championship in women’s hurdles over the weekend. CeCe Telfer of Franklin Pierce University easily won the 400-meter hurdles at the NCAA Division II outdoor track-and-field championships Saturday, winning the final race by more than a second. Telfer also finished fifth in the 100-meter hurdles, earning All-America honors. “It was tough conditions out here with the wind and the heat over the last three days, but as she has over the last six months, CeCe proved herself to be tough enough to handle it,”

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — June is Pride month, which means you may be seeing a lot of those iconic rainbow flags, depending on where you live. You might also see other flags flying next to them, meant to include the diversity of the LGBTQ community — here's what they all mean. The iconic six-striped rainbow flag was created by artist and veteran Gilbert Baker in 1978 at the request of activist Harvey Milk, according to Baker's website. Baker's original flag included eight colored stripes, each with a different meaning: pink for sex, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for

Left-wing actress Bette Midler took to social media this week and suggested that someone in President Donald Trump’s “camp” should “shiv” or stab him. “He actually looks better here! Maybe someone in his camp can gently give him a shiv. I mean, shove,” Bette Midler said on Tuesday night. The actress was piggybacking on a tweet by Michael Moore, who had ranted about President Trump’s surprise visit to McLean Bible Church in Virginia on Sunday. “Seriously, WTF is this? At what the WH said was ‘a memorial for the 12 shot dead in Virginia Beach’ (it wasn’t),

Former Congressman and current Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke has laid out a plan he says would help the country "realize the full potential of our democracy." O'Rourke's campaign says the "Voting Rights and Democracy Reform Plan" could increase registration by 50 million voters and turn 35 million additional voters to the polls by 2024. O'Rourke's plan is built around three parts. One would focus on increasing voter turnout. The plan would allow same-day voter registration. Twenty states and Washington DC allow same-day registration now.​ Sixteen and 17 year olds would be automatically pre-registered.

President Trump’s threat to impose tariffs on all Mexican imports until Mexico takes serious action to control its border with the U.S. shocked the Washington Beltway, Wall Street, and the Palacio Nacional in Mexico City. These centers of financial and political power, lulled by a U.S. Congress that has refused to act and activist federal judges who have stymied Trump’s border control efforts at every step, were jolted awake by Trump’s ultimatum. But they should not have been surprised. The president issued a similar threat back in April. And, Trump promised from day one of his presidential campaign that he would make stanching the flow of illegal immigration,
