"'Coward' deputy who stayed outside during Parkland school shooting receives monthly $8,700 pension


The sheriff's deputy who waited outside the Parkland, Fla., high school while a gunman killed 17 people inside is now receiving a state pension of more than $8,000 a month, according to a new report."

Poor bastich has been insulted around the world. And of course had NO orders to enter the school... and probably training to NOT enter the school without backup. Because only Hollywood and the NRA think he would have made a difference other than catching a few bullets himself.

This.

Isn't that the logic behind defending the police shooting of suspects who make ambiguous movements, or firemen watching buildings burn until fully prepared to enter, or soldiers taking cover despite casualties on the field, that the safety of the responder is paramount?

Yep, shoot everything that breathes, they may be eventually, potentially, become dangerous, or worse yet, not follow orders....

You don't need "probably" training to sit there and do nothing while you are listening to students being gunned down.

Ugh. I don't think you will find any professional armed peace officer who will yammer on about running in there without backup and being 'the good guy'. With a pistol against a murderer with a semiautomatic rifle.

Amateurs ? Yeah. Wannabes ? Yeah. Cadet Bone Spurs ? Oh yeah.

I own guns. I've fired guns (at targets and animals I've hunted). I designed weapon systems for the military. I studied all the FM's. But.... I have NO training. I'm also not STUPID. I've been in an armed insurrection and been shot at. I hid in my damn hotel room bathtub for two days, and came out to find the window had a few nice holes in it and the wall next to the bed had a few nice holes in it. If I had been in the bed or at the desk, I would not be here now.

If I'm armed and someone starts shooting people, I'd hide and run like hell. Of course I don't see how that would happen... crazy person at the range ?
