    He was fired, probably lost his pension. That’s tough. To have to taxpayers spend (what is it now) somewhere north of $40K/ year to have him stay at the grey-bar inn does no go. Just my 2¢

    Imagine 2nd amendment scrutiny applied to any other amendment. For Example you can speak freely in Montana but not in Massachusetts.

    Actually, Orocky, . . . he gets more than $8000 a month in retirement.

    I don't know how you can be fired if you have been retired for a year and collecting a pension?

    He was supposed to provide security for the school. If he was issued or expected to carry a firearm to execute those duties then he failed miserably at his job. Clearly he was expected to do something other than watch the building from outside. Can you send a man to jail for being a wussy? No more so than the sheriffs department that did no better. Both should have consequences but government has absolved themselves and those they hire from such liability. I do not see legally having this man convicted in criminal court. Civil court maybe.

    You want to give them a pass as well?

    Excellent responses all!

    Now another question;

    If Peterson is found guilty and sentenced or even if he is not found guilty but everything he has earned is summarily taken from him, who will sign up to be a School Officer?

    Even if someone does sign on to do this job, they better ask for a helluva lot of money and equipment to do their job. I sure as hell do not want to go into a gun fight with a 9mm semi-auto pistol when the bad guy may have a 308 or 5.56 semi auto with multiple 20 and or 30 round mags and back up pistols, shotties or whatever. I'd make sure I had PLENTY of firepower myself. The problem be is that most school districts would never allow it.

    Bottom line, this is FUBAR all around...

    Yes -- he is a coward ! He could have saved lives had he not hid outside!
    He was the school officer!!
    The Sherrif should also be charged because, according to him, he provided training.
    Appearently that training was damn poor!!

    More things to ponder;

    Why stop with the officer? The School Principal and School Board Administrators were complicit in not keeping those kids safe from a murdering mentally ill person, they authorized the "No Firearm Safe Zone" correct? The school teachers who didn't rush the gunman, why not go after them?

    Any adult students over 18 who didn't attempt to stop the shooter? Go after them too!

    How about any passerby's? Or the parents who put their kids at risk in an obvious "Kill Zone"? Charge them for neglect and endangerment!

    FUBAR I tell you , FUBAR....
