Florida deputy who did not confront school shooter gets pension

Scot Peterson, disgraced Parkland school cop, starts getting $8702-a-month pension

The normally uneventful election for Broward County School Board has turned into a nationally watched race now that two parents of victims at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High have filed to run.

Alhadeff is running for a seat in Broward County School District 4, while Petty is running in Broward County School District 8.

Alyssa and Alaina were both killed in the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

U.S. President Donald Trump also called Peterson a coward. The video released Thursday, March 15, shows Peterson going toward the high school building while a gunman massacred 17 students and staff members, but stayed outside with his handgun drawn.

They also criticized the district for what they see as a lack of openness, including failing to respond to requests for public information and changing stories about Cruz's involvement in the controversial Promise program, which provides alternatives to arrests for certain misdemeanors. Alhadeff also said discipline systems at the district need to be "revamped" because they have "gone from the complete extremes-from over-disciplining kids to not disciplining kids, which we have now". "I'm still not satisfied with the answers to the questions I asked back then".

"I do not want any other parent to go through the pain and anguish that I go through everyday", Alhadeff said.


Alhadeff is a former classroom teacher in New Jersey and has a master's degree in education.

"If I get elected to the school board, I can be part of making sure the law gets implemented", Petty told Politico.

He is challenging incumbent Donna Korn, 46, for the at-large county seat.

But she and Petty do not favor firing Runcie.

"Prior to Valentine's Day, I didn't understand impact school board has on our schools ..."

The Broward County School District is the country's sixth largest school district and the second-largest in Florida behind Miami-Dade County.
