    Scot Peterson charged over response to shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School

    The 'Americans Getting Shot' Thread-11182954-3x2-700x467-jpg

    A former Florida sheriff's deputy faces almost 100 years in jail over charges stemming from his lack of response to a mass shooting at a US high school in which 17 people were killed.

    Key points:
    • Scot Peterson was school resource officer on the day a gunman entered a Parkland, Florida school and opened fire.
    • Mr Peterson never went inside the school during the mass shooting, the Broward County Sheriff's Office says
    • Nikolas Cruz, who was expelled from the school, has been charged with murder


    Scot Peterson, 56, has been taken into custody on charges of child neglect, culpable negligence and perjury, Broward County State Attorney Mike Satz said in a statement on Tuesday (local time).

    The charges, laid over Mr Peterson's response to the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, carry a combined maximum prison sentence of nearly 97 years, he said.

    100 years for NOT using his gun. So the message is clear. Everyone should have guns and everyone with a gun should use it if someone else with a gun is shooting.

    I searched for 'mohamed noor' and this thread popped up so I assume the incident is mentioned here.

    Mohamed Noor sentenced to 12-and-a-half years' jail for murder of Justine Damond Ruszczyk

    The 'Americans Getting Shot' Thread-11025476-3x2-700x467-jpg

    Former US police officer Mohamed Noor has been sentenced to 12-and-a-half years' jail for fatally shooting Australian woman Justine Damond Ruszczyk through the side of his police car.

    Noor was convicted of third degree murder and second degree manslaughter for killing Ms Damond Ruszczyk just minutes after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her Minneapolis home in July 2017.

    Judge Kathryn Quaintance said the jury members who convicted Noor had asked when the US police culture would change.
    "Will there be changes? Change is needed," she said.

    "Will some of the supervising officers be fired? Why should a civilian be afraid of approaching a squad car? What about the motto on the car to serve with compassion?"

    Judge Quaintance also dismissed a defence motion to acquit Noor and set aside the jury verdict.

    ...I worked with her father in Iran and last saw Justine when she was crawling around on a Persian carpet in her parents' garden in Isfahan...the family has been plagued with a number of misfortunes of which this was probably the worst...

    change the race of the cop to white and the race of the victim to black, and there's no way the cop gets 12 years....and probably doesn't even get indicted.

    Get those thoughts and prayers ready...

    A New York City police spokesman has confirmed that multiple people were shot at a playground in Brooklyn.
    News outlets report the shooting happened just before 10 p.m. Saturday in Brownsville.
    The spokesman could not confirm the number of people shot or their conditions.

    Lots of praying going on in El Paso. Forget the victims and pray for decent gun control.

    Just had the shooting a week ago at the Garlic Festival in Gilroy California, now this one.

    The way its panning out they will need to put up signs at all stores and events that you enter at you own risk as there could be a mass shooting at anytime.

    America where we love our guns and use them frequently to kill people every day...

    Lucky to have somebody to blame. So why not to come back to good old times (and their good old Presidents) when people love each other?

    Tell that to the shooter who killed and injured Mexicans due to the pervasive climate of hate in America stirred up by Fox News and Donald Trump.

    Looks like it was an anti-immigrant 'Build the Wall!' kinda dude responsible. White, obviously.

    And he was taken into custody? How does that work exactly? You can be shot and killed during a routine traffic stop for driving whilst black but all these guys somehow get taken alive.

    Every day, 100 Americans are killed with guns and hundreds more are shot and injured.

    Guess that is not "mass" enough to warrant "breaking news" coverage.
