Scot Peterson resigned and retired from his post as a resource officer at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 22.
When told he was going to be suspended without pay pending an investigation into his actions, the 33-year law enforcement veteran opted to retire, which comes with a hefty pension that Peterson started receiving in April, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
Broward County Sheriff's Deputy Scot Peterson now receives over eight thousand dollars a month in pension despite his failure to act during February's tragic school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
"The coward of broward, Scot Peterson is getting over $8k a month pension!"
Pension payments are reportedly calculated based on the average of his five highest-paid fiscal years and the number of years he worked.

Senior Brandon Huff claimed he saw Peterson standing outside behind a stairwell wall, gun drawn "just pointing it at the building" as shots erupted from inside the school.
"[His actions] were appropriate under the circumstances", lawyer Joseph DiRuzzo said in a statement to the Miami Herald.
