Peterson attracted controversy after surveillance footage showed that Peterson, who was the resource deputy stationed at the high school, stood outside the building as gunman Nikolas Cruz opened fire.

Facebook on Tuesday released numbers on the kinds of content-and how much of it-the company has removed in recent months. In addition, Facebook stated that from the remaining accounts, a mere three to four percent were fake .
Scott is being urged by the father of one of the Parkland victims to revoke Peterson's pension.

The sheriff said he was disgusted and demoralized by what he saw, while President Donald Trump called Peterson a coward, and said he "didn't have the courage" to confront the shooter and "doesn't love the children".
