    I think he's going to be found guilty on something. I guess he better hope his jury of peers are not LEOs and parents.

    I had thought he was doing questionable things for maybe a few minutes that could be reasoned as confusion and wrong choices, but 48 minutes, that would seem to have to be purposeful. I mean if he had run around to the wrong building or something but 48 minutes of cover. That's hard to justify.

    He sure trained a lot. Sounds like he's a professional student and smiling glad-hander.

    Really bad. There is no way to justify even one minute of hiding in fear for the person whose sole duty was the safety of those children. If the secretary at the front desk hid under her desk, I could understand that. This guy? No excuse. No hint of the beginning of the benefit of a doubt of an excuse. That coward deserves no leniency, forgiveness, understanding, or kindness of any kind. The only person that deserves worse than him is the lower than dirt at the bottom of a septic tank, poor excuse for a human being, that did the shooting in the first place. And even that is questionable. The shooter is clearly a deranged mentally ill lunatic. Not forgivable, but understandable. This guy is a straight up coward that chose to keep himself safe while listening to innocent children die in close proximity and standing there cowering with the means to stop the mad man in his hand.

    My money still says Peterson would have been Johnny on the Spot if some bystander got wind of what was going on and rolled up armed to deal with Cruz.

    I think it's too much to ask him to trade his life for other people's children.

    Ar any rate, the lawyers say he'll walk because he had no duty to try to protect anybody.

    What's also interesting is that 2 or 3 other sheriff deputies showed up, and took up positions in the parking lot. When the city police appeared, they said "what the hell is going on" and went into the school pronto.

    Nobody expected him to trade his life. He was expected to immediately engage and stop the murderer. He was trained to do so, and that was the whole point of him being there.

    He took taxpayer money on the premise he would for 25 years. That makes him a major league fraud.
    What if this whole crusade's a charade?
    And behind it all there's a price to be paid
    For the blood which we dine
    Justified in the name of the holy and the divine…

    He’s lived his life.

    In police work you can do absolutely everything the right way and still die.
