The 2018 Parkland school shooting will be reenacted with live gunfire today.
As part of a civil lawsuit against a former sheriff’s deputy who remained outside during the massacre, at least 140 bullets will be fired inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
A gunman killed 17 people and injured 17 others in what remains the deadliest high school shooting in the US. Families of the victims want to reenact the shooting with live rounds instead of blanks in an effort to prove that Scot Peterson, the former deputy, chose to not confront the shooter, when heard
upwards of 70 shots and knew where they were coming from.”
Peterson was found not guilty in June of criminal charges after prosecutors accused him of ignoring his training and failing to make contact with the gunman, instead taking cover while the victims were gunned down.
Gun nuts always parrot the stupid notion, that all any active shooting needs “is a good man with a gun” to stop it, which keeps being proven over and over, is just not true.
