New video shows Parkland deputy during school shooting

Police have released footage of the deputy who has been heavily criticised for not running into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School when a gunman opened fire.

In fact, it does not show disgraced Broward County Deputy Scot Peterson doing much of anything. Sheriff Scott Israel blasted Peterson eight days after the shooting, saying the deputy should have entered the building immediately, "addressed the killer, killed the killer".

From the video, it does not appear Peterson did any of those things. The video captured him hurrying across the campus as the massacre was unfolding and then - while, police said, the shooting continued - standing outside for several minutes without seeming to take cover.

"Let there be no mistake, Mr Peterson wishes that he could have prevented the untimely passing of the 17 victims on that day, and his heart goes out to the families of the victims", his attorney, Joseph DiRuzzo III, said in a statement.

His account seems to be contradicted by the 911 dispatch tapes released by the Broward Sheriff's Office last week.

Mourinho names Premier League's worst manager ever
De Boer added: "He can make mistakes but Mourinho is not like that and if he has one or two not good games then he puts him out". He branded the second leg " more important" than the Liverpool match because it is a knockout tie.

The video shows Peterson and a staff member in a golf cart rushing toward the building. He has said Peterson remained outside because he thought the gunfire was occurring outside the school.

The video does not show inside the buildings, the gunman or the faces of any students. The sheriff's office said in a statement Thursday, "The video speaks for itself". His actions were enough to warrant an internal affairs investigation, as requested by Sheriff Israel on February 21.

The sheriff's office released the 27-minute video clip, most of which comes from a stationary camera on the Stoneman Douglas campus, after being ordered to do so by a judge. He said it confirms that Peterson should have entered the building: that is an almost-universal response in police training after the 1999 Columbine High and 2012 Sandy Hook school shootings. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating how authorities handled the mass shooting.

A Florida judge earlier this week agreed with news outlets including The Associated Press that the video should be released.
