A former school safety officer has been arrested for failing to confront the gunman in the Parkland, Florida shooting. Florida authorities are charging Scot Peterson with multiple counts of child neglect, culpable negligence and perjury. Peterson worked as a school resource officer at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School where 17 people were fatally shot by gunman Nikolas Cruz in February of 2018. A 15-month investigation revealed that Peterson retreated during the active shooting and directed other law enforcement to stay away from the building. Peterson was booked into Broward County Jail and his bail will be set at 102-thousand dollars.
