Andrew Pollack, father of a teenager killed in the Parkland shooting last month, went off on former Broward County deputy Scot Peterson on Fox News Thursday for standing outside the school while students were mowed down.
The Feb. 14, 2018 shooting resulted in 17 deaths.
“To tell you the truth, I haven’t watched it,” Pollack said about the video of the officer standing outside.
“I can’t stomach to watch it. I just heard what was going on and not only is he an embarrassment to every police officer that puts uniform on, he’s a coward and he’s also a liar. He lied in the investigation, so not only is he a coward, he’s also a liar. He knew when that guy brought him in the golf cart, he brought him right to the building. So, and then he said he didn’t know the shots were coming from there, so he lied right there. The guy drove him to the building in the cart, and then he lied in the investigation, also said he never heard shots.” (RELATED: Listen To The Horrifying 911 Calls Made During The Parkland School Shooting)
“So, he’s also a liar. And, to go past that, he was there at the third minute, okay? My daughter was killed on the third floor, so he had ample enough time to save everybody on the third floor, this guy.”
“And he didn’t do it–because the shooting took…for seven minutes, so he stayed there so my daughter’s on the third floor, she got shot four times, she struggles to a door, this guy’s downstairs, the guy…goes down the hallway, shooting injured kids on the floor, he shoots my daughter another five times while that coward is waiting, that embarrassment of an officer. So, this just shows you Martha, that we can’t rely, we have to take more measures, we can’t just rely on one SRO officer to protect our kids,” he added.
